Configuring a Backup

To configure a backup, click the Backup Wizard button. A wizard appears on screen to guide you through the process. Acknowledge the welcome screen by clicking the “Next” button and you are prompted to select the target of this backup.

The options are self-explanatory, with the possible exception of the “System State Data”. The system state is a collection of files core to Windows, including the registry and boot configuration files. It is important that this be backed up on a regular basis.

As the “Back up everything on My Computer” will take a considerable amount of time, choose the “Back up selected files, drives or network data” option and click “Next”.

Figure 168: Backup Drive Selection

 


A pseudo-Explorer window appears, in which we can select the items to back up. Every item has a checkbox next to it – to back it up, simply click on the checkbox. In the above screenshot, the “All Users” folder is being backed up as well as the system state data. Once the required items have been selected, click “Next” to specify the location to back up the data to.

In the above screenshot, the “Backup Media Type” drop down box has been disabled, as no tape drive17 is installed on the machine. Set the name for the backup file, and click “Next”. A summary screen will appear, and prompt you to click “Finish” to begin the backup. Before doing so, click the “Advanced” button.
