  1. What's the right way to backup my laptop?


    Hi! I keep all my important files on my home server and not on my laptop. But my laptop is customized with software, etc that it would be good to have backed up in case I ever lost or damaged my laptop.

    I was having windows automatically backup itself daily, but the file sizes maxed out my server and this didn't seem the right solution.

    So I'm basically looking to make a periodic backup of my laptop, updated from time to time, but not constantly so as to not take up to too much space. Any advice? I'm a noob so phase walk me through step by step. Thank you very much!

  3. Need a Backup Solution

    I need to figure out the best way to back all my data up.

    I have an 60GB OCZ Vertex as an OS drive and two 1TB Samsung F3 drives. One drive is used for storage and the other will be used for whatever backup plan I decide on.

    I need to back up both drives in my desktop and also my laptop. My laptop has an eSATA port.

    The backups need to be automatic. (for the desktop, I can do the laptop manually) The backups also need to have some way to be restored. The ability to be read by another computer would be nice also.



    So I'm looking for the whole backup/recovery plan. Any suggestions? Fire away.

    Backup using file history

    Thanks Robeline

    I was going by other advice and articles that suggest that backing up under Update and security/backup is now the way to go. I will try your suggestion.
