Windows 7 begin to win acceptance by the old
Windows XP users. The feeling, the simplicity, the
robustness makes from Windows 7 a great candidate to the
status world wide used. besides, the graphical engine,
the automatically recognition and installation of the
drivers and even the update of drivers directly from the
internet makes from Windows 7 a real champion in the
Operating Systems battle.
Even if Windows XP was a great operating system it
was not very efficient in recovery and backup tools.
That is because in Windows XP when you did a complete
re-installation of the operating system you have been
forced first to save all your private documents if they
were saved in "My Documents" folder on the C: partition.
And in Windows XP if you lost the operating system meant
to loose important files or documents. So, from this
point of view we see a great evolution from Windows XP
to Windows 7.
But let's get further and see why Windows 7 is
superior. If you open the Control Panel you find the
"Backup and Recovery Center". Open it up and you'll have
a few options there. What is interesting us, if we want
just to secure our documents with a backup is the "Turn
on schedule" option and "Change Settings".
First we will select "Change Settings" and a new
screen appears and demands us to specify the place where
the backup it will be saved. Select a different
partition where you know you have space and click
"Next". The next screen you will have two options but we
are interested only in "Let me choose". After selecting
this option the next screen shows you the partition C:
and you can browse it by your choice and select what you
need to back-up. It's important to select your private
libraries and be careful to unselect the option found
just below the browsing screen: "Include a system image
of drives C:". So unselect it. Otherwise you will have
the entire partition backed up.
Ok. Now can choose "Back up now" option from the
main window and your documents and libraries are backed
up. But the real option is "Turn on schedule" which lets
you to do regular backups at the time and the day you
This way you can have all your documents saved at
day, and you can recover them all in case of a Windows 7
