Backing Up Data to a Flash Drive 

by on January 22, 2008

Q: How can I backup my laptop on my new memory stick?

A: First you need to connect your new memory stick to your laptop via USB. Your computer will recognize the memory stick and in most cases the stick will appear on your desktop. If it does not appear on your desktop then you will need to go into My Computer, and depending on what version of Windows you are running you either have My Computer on your desktop or you have to go into Start then select My Computer. Once you are at My Computer you should see a header that says Removable Drives and under that you will see your memory stick.

Now as for backing up your entire computer that will not be possible with a memory stick because your laptop holds much more information than your memory stick possibly could. You will need to figure out what items you would like to have copied over to your memory card. You will probably want to copy your documents in My Documents, which can usually be found from the Start menu. To start the process you will want to have two windows open. You will want the memory stick window open and the My Documents window open. From here drag the files in My Documents over to your memory stick to put them on there.

I hope this helps you out and that you are now able to backup your important documents.


Copying Downloaded Files To DVD 

by on December 24, 2007

Q: I would like to transfer downloaded files to a DVD.

A: Transferring files to a DVD is no different then transferring them to a CD. Obviously you need some sort of burning software like Nero. Burning software will generally have you select the type of disk you are burning. If you are just burning data files than you will select the data disk option or equivalent.

For data DVDs you should just drag and drop what files you want to burn into the copy from window. For downloaded files the best thing to do is to organize them into a single folder so that you can drag and drop the folder into the copy from window. It makes it easier and more expedient to copy files.

The program should have a gauge to tell you how much space you have left on the disk you are burning to. Remember that a DVD can hold 4.7 GB of data. When you put all of your files into a folder in Windows it will tell you how much data is in that folder. If you are burning files to a DVD then you must have a lot of data so use the disk efficiently. Remember to use folders for your downloaded files so that for the purpose of backing up data everything is ready for a simple drag and drop.
