What is a backup ??

A backup is one or more copies of your data (pictures, music, documents, homework) and settings (bookmarks, preferences, desktop, etc), which allows you to recover from events such as computer viruses, hardware failures, and accidental file deletions.

Where should I backup ?
This would protect against accidental file deletion, but computer crashes and viruses would still cause data loss.
The three most common options are external hard drives, CD/DVD's, and online storage. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and the best solution may use more than one option. Sensitive data requires special considerations.
