Questions from Winforums
Question: (audio question) Hi guys! My name is Cindy and I’m really loving your show. I thought I’d send you an audio question. Hope that’s ok. Perhaps you can answer this on your show.
I’ve been using a computer for a few years now, but something I have always neglected is backing up and I think it’s time to start. What recommendations do you have for protecting my information. Thanks and looking forward to the next cast. Bye!
Answer: Data backup and recovery
