Windows 7 Backup

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So you want to regularly backup your home computer or small business workstation? What should you do? Well if you are using Windows 7, you are in luck! You can use Windows 7 backup!

Windows 7 backup comes with Windows 7 and not only allows you to do a backup, but you can have it redirect the backup easily to an external storage device. The first backup that runs will take some time to run as it does a “full” backup the first time around. But then after that, it will backup the changes and the backup window will shrink significantly.

I personally love using an external QNAP 459 Pro to send my backups to. More than enough storage, and redundancy built into the device. I can then take the data from there and copy it to an external drive for offsite storage as well.
