Backup in Windows 7
Your digital files are always protected from the easiest and most comfortable way you
can imagine, thanks to the latest Microsoft system. So much so that your intervention is
not even necessary
The concern over the possibility of losing our digital files is a thing of the past. Preserve
your photos, videos, music, documents, etc. thanks to the Center Backup and Restore
Windows 7. We all know how important it is to make backups of our precious files.
Nevertheless, they are usually few users are carried out regularly. If we focus on those
users who regularly make backup of your files, there are many who resort to third - party
programs to do this task. But in any edition of Windows 7 (Home Premium, Professional,
and Ultimate) is necessary to resort to external tools the operating system itself.
To carry out our backup need an external hard drive, whose capacity will depend on the
volume of data we store on our team. Let's see step by step how to schedule a regular
backup of our team using the Center Backup and Restore Windows 7.
Step 1. A first contact
To access the Center Backup and Restore Windows, we go to Start / All Programs /
Maintenance / Backup and Restore. In the screen that opens, we are given option Set up
backup, create a system image, create a repair disk system, Select another backup to
restore files and Recover system settings or your computer. Let's focus on the first option,
which deals with how to configure backups.
Step 2. Choose the location for the copy
We started connecting our external hard drive to your computer. Then we click Set up
backup, and in that panel, choose our external hard drive.
Optionally, we have the opportunity to save the backup network, but in our example we
have opted for the external drive. Then press next.
Step 3. The source data
Now we see a new window in which it asks us what we want to do a backup. We have
two possibilities. Let Windows choose is the easiest option, because it saved the backup
all our files in libraries (documents, pictures, music and videos) on the desktop and in the
Windows folder default (Contacts, Downloads, etc..). However, it is possible that we
have the staying in other partition data and therefore we more interested in the second
option: Let me choose. So, select the libraries or folders you want to include. In this step
we will go for the second option. Then click next.
Step 4. Select the files
Since we have chosen in the earlier step the second option, we are free to choose which
files to our team wants to add to the backup. We displayed our libraries and we can
choose those that interest us and unchecking not.
Also, from Team we can see all our partitions. We scored in all the folders that interest us
and uncheck those that do not. Also, we decide whether we want a system image. This
will help us to make the computer back to the state it has been in just prior to the backup
(with the same programs that you had installed, settings, documents, etc.), just in case it
would at a certain point the Windows installation is damaged and do not want to lose
everything. Again, we click next.
Step 5. Check the configuration
In the new window, we are informed about the location you have selected to store the
copy, while it provides a summary of the files that we have included in it: user libraries,
folders added or excluded... Also, we inform us whether we have added, or not, a system
On the other hand, we are given the opportunity to change the schedule by default. To do
this, click on Change Schedule and in the new screen, specify the frequency (daily,
weekly, monthly) that the backup will take place, and the day of the week and time. We
accept to save the changes. To close the backup configuration, we need to click on Save
Settings and run back up.
Step 6. Restore the backed up data
To cope with this task, we headed to the main window Center Backup and Restore. Once
there; we found that we have at our disposal two alternatives when restoring the contents
of a backup. If we performed the backup in the current installation of the operating
system, in paragraph restore option we seem restore all users ' files. But if we have done
in a previous installation of the operating system, we will show that Windows did not
find any backup for this computer.
If we want to recover the contents of a backup is not made in the current installation of
Windows 7, but at an earlier, we must go to select another backup to restore files.
Step 7. Backups other systems
Center Backup and Restore do to search all devices connected to a PC one backup that
we have made through it. To find that, we must have connected the external hard drive in
which we do the backup of our data. We will display all backups you have found,
informing the period covered by each of them, the team that was performed and the
location of it. We choose the backup from which we want to recover all or part of its
content and click on Next.
We see a new screen where you basically have two options to recover our files appears.
With Total restoration, we choose to recover all the files safeguarded while with partial
restoration only get a part. Of course, it allows us to use different search options as
Search (we enter one or more keywords and we will display all results, files or folders
that match the search; from there, we can add to recover those results that interest us).
Meanwhile, both Searches for files as Search Folders is possible to sail through the
structure of the backup by selecting the files or folders that interest us, respectively.
Obviously, it would be very difficult to carry out a partial restoration by only keyword
searches. Once you have selected, the content that interests us, we click next, so that the
process of restoring files starts either in the original place they were in the previous
installation of Windows 7 or in the location we select.
