I am not sure which board fits the question.
Where are the courses or classes for common people to learn hands-on the deal with hard disk backup and to learn to deal with security and protection software, and how to use?  Not for computer experts, but for ordinary people who may just have basic computer literacy.  What are such classes called?  Which kinds of schools give these classes?  Is the only way, to actually buy a computer, ask for advice on various online forums, and try the software programs on one's own, an stumble through trying to learn, maybe messing up their computer, files, disks badly, and then need to pay for professional help/technicians to put things back in good working order?

Backing up is absurdly easy, for files atleast, plug in a USB stick and right click the important files in your file browser then "send to" and "removable disk F" although it might sometimes be "G" or a "local disk". Although I'll admt a warning about the importance of doing this ought to be written on the box of every computer sold. As for backing up the system there is a good tutorial on here about system images and, yes, that sort of thing ought to be written on the boxes of new computers as well for people using a computer for the first time.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
