Additional notes

Remember that if you restore files or folders to their original destinations, Windows may overwrite more recent versions of those files. For example, if you restored a copy of the file “accounts.txt” from a backup made several weeks ago, you would overwrite the current version of “accounts.txt”. To avoid this, restore the files to an alternative location like we did in the video.
