Set up a backup
- Click on the Windows Start button (bottom left).
- Click on ‘Settings’ .
- Go to ‘Update & security’.
- Select ‘Backup’.
- Chose ‘Add a drive’.
You can now specify an external drive, such as an external hard drive or a network location (cloud storage) for saving your backups.
Based on these settings, the entire contents of your user folder (C:\users\username) are now copied to the external drive every hour. If you wish to change the files where a backup is created or the number of times that a backup is created, click on the ‘More options’ tab.
*Important! If you choose to save your backups to an external drive, ensure that it remains connected to the Notebook.
