Acer® TravelMate Back up data
Backing up of data can be really helpful in all circumstances. As computers are sensitive machines there is possibility for some kind of error occurring resulting in making the data on the system inaccessible or data loss. Data backup comes in extra handy during a hard disk crash which results in permanent data loss. These data backup should be always made on a separate media. Although a partition of the hard disk on your Acer TravelMate Laptops could be used to maintain a backup data, this is not recommended as such modes of backup will not be able to save data in events like system not being able to boot or hard disk crash. Apart from it, certain situations like malware attacks, hardware component failure and corrupted Operating system could be faced easily by having a data backup. Discussed below are some points that need to be kept in mind while backing up your Acer TravelMate system:
- Remove all malware
- Use separate and reliable media
- Include driver information
Remove all malware
Before trying to create a data backup on your Acer TravelMate system, you should make sure that all malwares within all partitions of the hard disk are removed. If malwares are present at the time of creation of backup, infections are likely to be transferred even on to the backup media. These malware infections on the data backup shall make the data on the backup media totally useless and inaccessible.
Use separate and reliable media
Back up of your Acer TravelMate system data should be made on a separate media that could be reliable. Hard disks being an integral part of the hardware required by system for working cannot be relied upon as a data storage medium. Also avoid USB drives or Flash drives as even they are also susceptible to virus attacks. Normally data backup is recommended to be made on a removable media like DVD or CD.
While creating backup of data on your Acer TravelMate system, you should not forget to include driver information too on the back up. This need to be done because in case your system gets affected by malware which corrupts some of the drivers thereby causing hardware issues, important drivers like DVD drivers which are required for Operating System reinstall could be readily installed from the backup. Thus, such backup helps to overcome some adverse situations.
