    WARNING: After your backup, ALWAYS check to make sure you can read from the backup. Try arbitrarily to recover some files. Imagine the nightmare, when your hard disk crashes & you're thinking you have a backup and then realize you can't read from it because it was a bad backup.

    What a great video! Thanks so much. It was perfectly clear and super easy to follow. Thanks so very much! One question though, how often does this need to be done? I have books that I am editing, so changes in manuscript are somethimes daily. Does this devise make changes only to the items that have changed or does it do a full sweep?

    I wish I can throw this guy a few bucks for his help he gave me. I could not get a hold of my I.T. Guy. So I watched a Instructor Gadget and got the job done. Thank You Instructor Gadget.

    Hey, I did this and at the end of the back up it said "never backed up properly" although it filled my HDD. I then reset my p.c and when I tried to recover the data, only a few things were restored.. How do I get my files? I cant access them…..????

    The above video tutorial is truly helpful. Thanks for sharing it here. There's one more way to take backup of a Windows system. You can use NTBackup utility, a freeware Windows backup tool.
