Labels:

Creating and restoring system backups in Windows Vista is very easy with the new feature, the Windows Backup and Restore Center.To access the Windows Backup and Restore Center in Windows Vista you simply click start orbs and then select Control Panel from start menu and then click on the Backup and Restore Center icon.


In the Windows Backup and Restore Center you can backup your system data in two different ways,by Automatic Backup and a Complete PC Backup.

Automatic Backup in Windows Vista

An Automatic Backup in Windows Vista, lets you set the Windows Backup and Restore Center feature to automatically backup your system data at a stage you select.

  • Open the Windows Backup and Restore Center and click on the Back up files button
  • Here you can select the option that, where you want to save your system backups to, your hard disk, a DVD or CD.
  • Now you have to select which disk drives you wanted included in the backup
  • Then you select what file types you wanted in your system backup.You can select the wanted file types using check boxes.
  • In this next step of the process you can select how often you want the automated backups to run. If it is your first system backup the computer will do a full backup first, then do the automated backups at your selected time.
  • You now simply click the Save settings and start backup button and your computer will either start the full backup or run the Automated backup on your selected date.
It is recommend that you set your computer to run backups at least weekly, but if you do have plenty of data being added daily you might want to consider running the automated backups daily.

Complete PC Backup in Windows Vista

Doing a Complete PC Backup in Windows Vista is very easy procedure but you may need a large amount of hard disk space to completely backup your whole hard disk and other disks, so it is better to use an external hard drive for this Complete PC Backup process.

It is a better practice to you do a complete PC backup every 3 months, or even do it more often if you add plenty of data on your computer often.
