    Ihave volumes of inf. on my computer - sent and received emails, excel file and lots more.
    What and how can I do to back ALL this inf. up. to keep somewhere else just incase.
    Do not want to print it all off, that defeats the object.
    Now remember - I know nothing about computers so PLEEEEEESE keep it simple.
    Do I put it on to discks, plug in pens or what and then of course HOW ?
    Regards

    Howdy,

    I would put the backups on CD would be OK

    Make a folder and name if say Inf backup (put in date also) either right click on the file and sent to....that folder that should make a copy of it in the folder.

    If you have all the files you want to backup on a page then click Ctrl + A that will select everything on that page...then press Ctrl + C that will copy them....then go to the folder you made and open it and press Ctrl + V that will copy them to that folder.

    when you want to put them on CD then as I am not sure what burning software you have do this. right click on the folder you want to put on CD choose Send to.....choose your CD drive...send all the files like that you want to put on CD but do not exceed the size of the CD.
    put a CD recordable in the drive ..go to My Computer then double click on the CD drive and on the left click on Write these files to CD.

    Dear Bonk,

    Thank you for that, you make it sound very easy, so I'm off to get some CD's and have a go.

    Regards
