How Do I Do A Full Backup for My PC?

Good evening everyone! I'm recently busy finishing my graduation project, so the data stored on my computer is of vital importance to me. My friend from the same group suggested that I create a full backup of my computer to prevent any risk. I don't know how to do that, can you help me, please?

Hi you. A full backup is a very common type of backup that helps you to save your important data, system files, or other personal settings. This type of backup can be very effective in helping you create a complete copy of the data on your computer. In your case, your friend's suggestion is correct.

Currently, there are two ways to create a full backup that I think would work well for you. The first method, and the one I personally recommend the most, is to use EaseUS Todo Backup Home.

EaseUS Todo Backup Home is one of the best Windows backup software available. It provides full backups, differential backups, and incremental backups for your computer. You can customize your backup period, backup target, and backup mode according to the advanced features available in EaseUS when creating a backup plan. It is an automatic backup software, so using EaseUS for backups will save you a lot of time and increase your productivity. In addition to backup functions, EaseUS is also useful for disk cloning, system migration, etc.

Unlike using third-party software, you can also use the built-in features provided by Windows to create a full backup of your system, but the steps are more tedious and error-prone. You can follow the steps below:

Step 1. Navigate to Settings> Update and Security> Backup on your Windows PC.

Step 2. Head to Looking for an older backup, and select Go to Backup and Restore.

Step 3. Choose the Create a System image option on the pop-up window.

Step 4. After that, follow the Windows prompts to complete the backup process.
