Backing Up

Safeguard your important documents

We probably all know that we should back up our data, documents, music, pictures and videos but not all of us know how to do this or why to do it.

  • What’s a Backup?
    A Backup is IT language for making a copy of something on your computer. For example, you may want to take a copy of all your pictures that you have on your computer, so that if anything should happen to your PC, you still have your photos. When you take a copy of these files you are “backing up” the photos or files.

  • Why Do a Backup?
    Doing a backup or taking a copy of photos or files can be really easy to do and ensures that if anything should happen to your PC, you will not lose those files and pictures that are so important to you and your family.

  • How to Do a Backup?
    One of the easiest ways to backup, is to copy your files onto a usb pen drive or stick. You simple insert the usb stick into the usb port on your computer, open windows explorer and copy the data that you want to back up. There are also cloud or remote back up functions including iCloud, Google Drive and OneDrive where you can copy files and photos to a remote location. The advantage of this is that you don’t have to remember where you put the usb stick!

What fantastic service we have received from The Computer People.


Our work computer went wrong yesterday morning and within minutes of my phone call, they collected my Apple Mac and it was fixed by the end of the day.


I will definitely be using this company again and telling all my business contacts about the service we have received.


Thank you so much.
