Creating Backups and Preparing for Problems
5. On the “Which file types do you want to back up?” page, shown in Figure 21-7,
select the types of files to back up. You can configure backing up pictures,
music, videos, email, documents, TV shows, or compressed files by selecting or
clearing the related checkboxes. Select “Additional files” to back up any addi-
tional files that do not fit in the defined categories. System files, program files,
and temporary files are never backed up regardless of your selections.
6. On the “How often do you want to create a backup?” page, shown in Figure 21-8,
use the options provided to set the desired backup schedule. The “How often”
selection list lets you choose Daily, Weekly, or Monthly as the run schedule. If
you choose a weekly or monthly run schedule, you’ll need to set the day of the
week or day of the month using the “What day” selection list. Finally, the “What
time” selection list lets you set the time of the day when automated backup
should occur. Be sure to pick a time when your computer will typically be on, and
a time that the backup process will cause the least disruption to your work.
7. To save the backup schedule and create the first backup set, click Save Settings
and Start Backup. When prompted to confirm, click Yes.
