Tips for using My Data backup (Advanced)
The following tips will be helpful when using advanced My Data backup:
n To add individual files and folders that aren’t included in a selected category, click either the Add Folder or Add Files button to browse your hard drive.
n We recommend that you choose Incremental backup when backing up to a hard disk or networked drive and Full backup when backing up to discs. Incremental begins with a full backup, then cycles between incremental and full backups on a schedule you select.
n If you encrypt your backup and lose or forget your password, you won’t be able to access your files. It is strongly recommended that you write down your password and store it in a safe place.
n If you choose to compress your backup, using the High setting will provide the smallest backup file size. Please note, however, that compressed files take longer to restore. Also, some types of files are already compressed. The amount of compression you achieve will vary depending on the types of files being backed up.
n To remove a saved backup, select it and click the delete button.
n Unless you select Run Once, a backup will run at the time and on the day of the week it was created. For example, a backup created Monday at 3 p.m., and scheduled to run weekly will run every Monday at 3 p.m. Likewise, a monthly backup will run at the time on the day of the month it was created.
Note: If you schedule a monthly backup for the 31st day of the month, your backup will be skipped during months with fewer than 31 days. Backups scheduled on the 29th or 30th day of the month will also be skipped during some months.
