Everyone on staff (and students too for that matter) should have a back-up of their W: somewhere – it’s just good computing.

Doing so is really easy, just follow the steps below:

2. Open up the drive that you want to back-up your W: to and Paste (Ctrl + V).

3. Once you have done this the first time your W: and your back-up will look the same. When you want to back it up again, just select everything in the W: and Copy as in step 1 and then select everything in your back-up and click paste as in step 2.

Once again, check the box indicated with the red arrow and then select “Copy and Replace” (circled) and it will overwrite your old back-up with the new one.
