Morning folks Bit of how to is needed here. I have had a PC for over ten years now and in that time I've had a few viruses which after clearing or cleaning of my PC have found that the damage that has been left behind has forced me to wipe the Hard Drive and start all over again.(Bit frustrating). I have never backed up my files and folders but now feel this is a good solution. I have a external Hard Drive can someone explain how to back up Windows Files plus all my other folders to a external Hard Drive so if I have to wipe the C. Drive again I can use the external as a reboot to install all instead of having to download from scratch. Many thanks guys brilliant site this is helped me out many times.
