Backup and Restore feature in Windows® 7
Are you operating your computer on Windows 7? Find out how to use the backup and restore features.
Windows 7 has many advantages over other Operating Systems. Windows 7 is not only simple to use but also makes any computer installed with it more stable, because of which chances of problems or issues coming up on the system installed with Windows 7 is minimal. All computer manufacturers recommend their customers to create a backup of all data on the system. This is because no matter how secure and stable a computer is, problems can come up very quickly. Problems or issues will not only leave the system inoperable but can also cause data loss. All Windows 7 users are therefore recommended to create a backup of all data on the system so that even if major issues come up with the OS, all of the data would be safe and secure in the backup media. Windows 7 comes preloaded with a Backup and Restore feature. This feature has been added so that users can easily take backup of data on the system without having to install third party applications. The backup and restore feature on Windows 7 has a very simple interface because of which even users with very little computer knowledge can use the feature without any issues. Once a backup has been created, the restore feature can be used to easily extract data on the image (backup).
Following details mentioned below gives users more information regarding ways to use backup and restore feature in Windows 7:
- Scheduled use
- Manually setup
- Automatic creation
The backup and restore feature on Windows 7 can be scheduled to create backup of data on the system automatically. This is a very helpful feature as even if users forget to create backup of essential data on the system, the backup would be created for later use. Parameters for running the scheduled backup such as day, time and how often the backup has to be created can be also adjusted to the user’s requirements.
Windows 7 also allows users to create backup of data manually. This means that users can add all important and essential data on the system to the backup without having to miss out anything. The backup can be created using the backup option in the tools tab of the 'Properties' of the drive. When creating the backup manually users can also review what all data has been added to the backup before initializing the backup creation process.
The backup and restore feature on Windows 7 also has an automatic setting. With the help of this setting users can let Windows 7 choose what data has to be backed up. However, users must bear in mind that this feature will not backup any of the program files, any data that has been formatted with FAT file systems, and data within the recycle bin, or temporary files larger than 1GB.
