New Curriculum - 1 (2/21/2018) PDF Email

 

 

 

 

SeniorNet Community,

 

 

New Curriculum - Class Materials !!

 

Backup and Restore for Windows 10 is now available for all 

SeniorNet Learning Centers.

 

 

This Workshop was created by Hank Clemente - SeniorNet's Curriculum Director

Thanks to SeniorNet's Peoria's Learning Center Team (Dave Dunkin, Fred Bliss, Bob Knott and Larry Anderson) for their support in editing this course.  

 

 

 

Why You Should Backup Your Files?

 

In today's fast-paced world, backing up your files is of the utmost importance. Typically music, movies, data files, and photos are all stored in one place - your computer. Laptops and desktops have decreased in cost, and the amount of storage inside them has increased greatly over the last few years allowing you to store a huge amount of personal data. Unfortunately having all of your data in only one place is dangerous.

 

Written for student with basic computer knowledge, in this SeniorNet workshop we show you how to use the tools available in Windows 10 to back up all your files and how to restore them using easy to follow step by step procedures.

 

You will learn:

  • What to back up.                                                
  • Where to back up.
  • Types of backups.
  • Tips for buying a portable hard drive.
  • How to partition a portable hard drive.
  • How to use Windows File History.
  • Schedule backups.
  • Restore a lost file or folder.
  • Restore all your files and folders.
  • Create a System Image backup.
  • Create a System Repair disk.
  • Use the System Repair disk to fix minor issues.
  • How to work with System Restore.
  • How to refresh or reset your computer.

 

 

All this and more in our new

Windows 10 Back up, Restore, Recover workshop!
