Prepare for the worst – Bounce back from the inevitable
Confused by Backups?
You’re not alone.
Saved! – Backing Up with Windows 8 Backup will show you – step by step – how to backup your Windows 8.1 computer using Windows own provided backup solution.
- Never lose data again
- Recover quickly from even the worst malware
- Get back that file you accidentally deleted
All this and more, using software you already have, installed as part of Windows 8.1, ready for you to start backing up NOW!
Safety Starts with a Backup
And that’s one of the first things we’ll do – take a backup of your machine right now so that you know, no matter what, you can recover to the state your machine is in today.
Then we’ll move on to making that backup happen automatically without your needing to do a thing.
We’ll cover exactly how you’ll use your backup should you ever need to – from recovering a single file or two, to restoring your entire machine to a backup image – you’ll be prepared.
We’ll test your backup too – making as sure as we can that it’ll be there when you need it most.
Hard Drives Die
And you’ll be ready when (not if) yours does.
Too many people have discovered that hard disks aren’t quite as reliable as perhaps they thought. When their hard drive dies they find out, the hard way, just what that means when they lose their precious data forever.
That won’t be you.
You’ll be prepared.
You’ll have used Saved! – Backing Up with Windows 8 Backup to prepare yourself from just about any disaster.
Malware Recovery the Easy Way
Current backups are useful for more than just hardware problems.
Why spend hours scouring the internet for instructions on how to remove that virus that somehow made it past your anti-malware tools? And then, hoping that the instructions work, don’t do more damage, and don’t leave your machine just as infected as before.
You’ll take the easy route instead: restore your machine to the state it was in before it was infected, and like magic, the malware is gone.
Windows 8.1 Backup
Saved! – Backing Up With Windows 8 Backup is all about backing up with the latest version of Windows 8 – Windows 8.1.
Microsot introduced several major changes in backing up with Windows 8.1, and we’ll cover them all.
Yes, there are other backup solutions out there, but if you don’t want to pay for them, you don’t have to. Windows 8.1 Backup is already on your machine, just waiting for you to use it.
Backing Up – The Closest thing to a Silver Bullet
Having a proper and recent backup can save you from just about anything. In fact, there’s very little that a good backup can’t rescue you from.
Malware infection? Restore from a backup and it’s gone.
Bad software update? Restore from a backup and it’s removed.
Need that file you deleted last week? Restore it from a backup.
I could go on singing the praises of backups … but hopefully by now you get the idea.
You should backup.
So why aren’t you?
Backups Are HARD!
The fact is backing up in Windows is way, WAY, WAY harder than it should be.
In fact, it can be pretty intimidating.
That’s why I wrote Saved! – Backing Up with Windows 8 Backup.
Step-by-step instructions on exactly what to do and how, using Windows 8’s backup program.
Backing Up is Peace of Mind
Once you have a backup in place you can rest easier, knowing that the stories you hear of people losing everything because of some random problem … well, that won’t be you!
You’ll be backed up.
If you run into a problem, you’ll be able to use your backups to restore files, restore folders, restore your entire system should you need to.
And restore a little peace of mind while you’re at it.
If It’s In Only One Place It’s Not Backed Up
Think about your data.
Think about your most important data.
Now, imagine that data gone – *poof* – in the blink of an eye due to a hard disk crash or other catastrophic failure.
Is that simply an inconvenience, or does it send chills down your spine?
If the later, then you know you should be backing up.
If you’re not sure, then you probably should be backing up.
And Saved! – Backing Up with Windows 8 Backup will help you get started.
“Show You” means SHOW YOU!
Once you register your book (via a link that is only in the book) you’ll get instant and FREE access to the companion web site that includes videos of the instructions presented in the book.
I’m told I’m pretty good at explaining things in the written word, but I know not everyone processes information the same way – some are simply more ‘visual’. And even then, as they say – “a picture is worth a thousand words”, so a video must be worth a bunch more.
The bonus videos might be the thing that helps it all make a little more sense.
Oh, and did I mention the videos include full transcripts? They do!
And they’re in both standard (640×360) and High Definition (1600×900) formats so you can choose which works better for you.
AND they can be downloaded, or streamed online.
