For setting up a backup in Windows 7, open 'My Computer' then right-click on your local drive and select 'Properties' then click on the 'Tools' tab and click the 'Backup now' button. The Windows 7 builds on the new features in Windows Vista's backup and fills in the missing functionality. The Windows Backup allows you to make copies of data files and also create a system image, which includes your system settings, programs and files. You may choose your custom location for the data backup and whether or not to include the system image during backup in Windows 7.
