Backing up files - Here's a stupid question - 01/31/05 06:20 PM
In the six or so years that I've owned computers, I've never backed up my computer (except to make a restore disk at the time I bought it). So I thought, time to back up this 160 gig hard drive. I went to Backup and ran the wizard inserting a floppy into my A: drive when asked. The computer then started to back up a zillion MB of files and stuff onto this little floppy. According to my computer, this process was going to take two days - and who knows how many floppies - (I had selected to backup my whole computer). I must be doing something wrong here. I know people usually back up their computers weekly or so and I'm sure it doesn't take two days. Hopefully, someone can give me some help on how this is done properly (I tried the Windows Help but we all know how "helpful" that can be). Thank you.
