So the question is, if you started up your computer and nothing happened, just a blank screen, no beep, just nothing which can be caused by a myriad of things, bad virus, power surge, bad sectors, Hard drive died, burnt out mother board etc etc, and the worse case scenario you had to reformat your hard drive, or even buy a new computer.......would you have all your important and precious files ready to install again?
If you do, then WELL DONE!!, if not why not, it is not hard to backup to say a DVD | CD | Flash Stick | External Hard drive, there are numerous options to choose from.
How to decide what to backup will show you how with the built in backup options for XP and Vista, or you can use many of the backup/image software programs, either way if you do not have a backup somewhere I urge you to make the effort, or if daunted by the prospect get someone to help you, you will not regret it.
Backup image software does cost, but well worth it are Ghost and Acronis. I have both backed up to external HD's, I have used them both in an emergency and was up and running in just over half an hour.
