Most users underutilize Windows features because of unfamiliarity. Thus, we’d like to introduce some functions to you.

Backup files and folders: Backup and Restore (Win7 and above), File History (Win8 and above), Previous Versions (Users need to turn on File History, then you can use this feature.)

If you want a handier backup method, you could utilize the free backup software for Windows-AOMEI Backupper. For instance, you could make a “File Backup,” “Disk Backup,” “Partition Backup,” and “System Backup” based on your needs.
