Just Do This: Back Up!

Just Do This: Back Up!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.

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.

  • Figuring out what, if anything, to buy.
  • Understanding what’s “important” and in need of backing up.
  • Figuring out how to make backups happen automatically.
  • Worrying about the security of your backups.
  • Backing up things where the very concept of “just make a copy” isn’t at all obvious.

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.
