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
