Do you think you could be a little more explicit,usually when you want to backup something you would copy the files to a CD, or if you mean a backup of your whole system then you need a program such as Acronis True Image. Perhaps if you gave us your OS and what you are trying to backup someone could help.

When you download new software, many suppliers recommend that you Back-up (Make a copy of) your present system and its files.

This is because, on occasion, the installation of new software can cause major problems and you may need to return to the previous set-up.

This not usually the fault of the new software but due to a conflict with one of the many thousands of possible permutations that you may have already installed on your PC.
