About File/Folder Backup
System Backup, Partition Backup and Disk Backup are the most used backup methods. They are effective ways to create full backup for partition, system or the entire disk. When it comes to backup a specific file or folder, you need to try another way - File/Folder Backup.
File Backup refers to backup a specified file or folder, it also helps to prevent data loss.
That way, you can create backups for the family pictures, favorite music or other user files. File Backup is more convenient than a full backup, as you can directly backup the needed files and avoid the undesired ones. It will not only save time but also storage space.
File and folder backup will back up each file on your PC. They don’t work in case you want to do a full restore of an operating system. If you did not setup your file backup to save “all” the documents on your machine, then you won’t be able to restore them. You can generally configure file backup systems to take an automated backup of everything at a set time.
