Remember to regularly backup files and data that you have created from your personal computer on to an external storage device such as a memory stick, CD/DVD, or other computer hard drive before making changes to your computer. Regular backups to an external device of critical data is very important as part of routine personal computer use. Hard drives and other storage devices can fail for many reasons making recovery of your data time consuming and costly, if not impossible. EASEUS offers free hard disk utilities including a 'disk copy' & 'total disk backup' at http://www.easeus.com/download.htm which you could use to create a copy of your drive or files to an external hard drive or cd/dvd. If you can access the Internet, AVG Antivirus (Grisoft w/Carbonite, Inc.) offers a 2 gigabytes (GB) [15 Day only] free online back-up space and MozyHome gives you free 2GB online [not time limited] and "Gizmo's Freeware" lists several 2GB to 25GB free online backup resources. Let me know if these suggestions work for you. If you have some other favorite tools or procedures to suggest, please email me.
