How do I back up my computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I bought a new computer recently with Windows 10 installed, during the set up process I was prompted to enroll in a back up facility for an annual fee. At the time I chose not to take this offer. However on reflection now it appears that instead of purchasing a separate external hard drive to back up maybe it is better to utilize the Microsoft facility. Can somebody explain in simple terms to a not so savvy senior how this works and does it offer a complete back up of all the content of my hard drive? In the event of a complete failure on my end can all of the data on the external back up be recovered and installed on a new computer?

    Thanks in advance.
