Is this how you feel when faced with thoughts of backing up?
“I was immediately so overwhelmed that I gave up.”
– An Ask Leo! reader
If that sounds too true, then Just Do This: Back Up is for you.
Backing up doesn’t have to be hard. Honest. Making copies of everything important is about as simple as it can be.
Options can be Overwhelming
The problem is that there are so many options. Each option requires a decision. Each decision requires a choice. Each choice is an opportunity for uncertainty and confusion.
It can quickly get overwhelming.
Clarity: Just Do This
Instead of giving option after confusing option, Just Do This: Back Up outlines a step by step arrangement for backing up your desktop or laptop PC that just works. Follow these instructions, watch the videos that are included with the book, and you’ll be backed up. You’ll be protected against everything from hardware failure to malware infestation and all the minor-to-major inconveniences in between.
I’ll make the hard decisions for you. Together we’ll back up your computer, and keep it backed up. We’ll:
- Get an external hard drive.
- Make an image backup.
- Schedule automatic image backups.
- Install and configure Dropbox for nearly-continuous backup of your work in progress.
- Install and configure BoxCryptor Classic to protect your valuable data in the cloud.
- Install and configure Dropbox on your smartphone, for immediate backup of the photos you take.
- Install Thunderbird and configure it to back up your on-line email account.
- Talk about a few reminders for things left for you to do manually on a semi-regular basis.
All using free software that you’ll download from the internet. And of course I’ll show you how and where to do that safely!
Once you register your book, you’ll also get access to videos online that demonstrate the software setup and configuration used, as well as updates, errata, prioritized help and more.
Don’t worry – I’ll give you guidance if you want to do things slightly differently. Either way, you’ll also be able to make changes later as your needs, and your own comfort level, changes.
Backups are important. So important that if you do nothing else…
