Select Secure Storage Media
You need to be concerned about the storage media which you are selecting for backup or transfer the data in your computer system. When you use internal backup you should have to choose the drive other than the one in which your Operating system is installed. Otherwise when System crash occurs you would lose all data. The Optical disc you select for backup data must not be a rewritable one.
Select Useful Data
Before creating the copy of contents inside your system, you should categorize all contents in your system. That might includes regularly used programs, driver software, documents, videos and images, Antivirus tools and so on. Unused trial versions of special software programs might be also there. You need to select needed contents only from them for backup.
Before taking backup of the data in your system, you must scan your Lenovo IdeaCentre A600-3011computer system for viruses. Otherwise when you backup virus infected files, they would damage all files in the storage media. When you use this backup data later, the viruses would spread to your system again.
