Additional notes

Windows 7 can also backup to DVD-R discs if your computer has a suitable DVD recorder drive. If your backup data is larger than the size of a DVD disc, the utility will automatically split the backup archive and prompt you to insert additional media. Keep in mind that backing up to DVD may require a large amount of discs if you have lots of multimedia files on your computer.

If you need help deciding on where to store your backup files, visit our guide to backup media by clicking here. If you are backing up to an external storage device, don’t foget to connect it at the scheduled time so that backups can take place.
