Backup and Restore


Backup and Restore Information is vital to protecting your system. You should use this program regularly. Many users will backup at the end of the day and others at the end of the month. You should backup frequently enough that, in the event of a data disaster, the potential loss of data may minimized--days or hours of updates rather than weeks or months.
