For this I would suggest using a External Hard Drive Enclosure.
This will allow you to keep your Important Data
safe and Separated
from the main system in case of problems. The cost for this kind of Backup System
has come down a lot. I would suggest a 500 Gig
capacity for your needs. Since you will only be Backing Up Data Files Only
this should be sufficient to do that for you. Follow the next two links to see examples of the price you will be looking at.
You could also use rewritable cd's or dvd's depending on the amount of data you need to backup.
To do it you would need a burning software and just add the folders with the data and burn them to cd's or dvd's.
I suggest going to Microsofts Backup Tutorial
and follow the steps to do a Backup
to a External Drive
Another way you can do a Backup
is by using DVD’s.
This method is just as effective and can be done using the same steps as above.
Please let me know if I can answer any further questions you may have as I am always happy to assist.
