Please forgive me for being such a biginner but i cant work out how to back up data. I would like to be able to format my hard drive but would like to back up files, save points, my aol etc befor i do it. I cant find the compressed file to drag/drop into (iff thats relivant). I know this is the most basic of tasks which should be done on a regular basis (backing up files) but i have never found out how to do it. Please forgive my ignorance and any advice would be very much apreciated Thanks.

click here for a really comprehensive guide - well written, simple to follow and really works well.

Basically you are best with a cd-rw drive and lots of cd-r disks - as they cost about 20p each or less in bulk it is not an expensive business. Anyway, have a read of the above link.
