A new tutorial titled How to backup and restore your data using Cobian Backup was added by YourHighness. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:


As many of you know, today's digital world comes with a lot of things that make
our daily life easier. However, as time goes on you rely more and more on the
information stored on your PC. No one is completely safe from power outages,
corrupt hard disks, an infected system through a backdoor
or trojan, or even a fire. To make sure that a computer can easily be restored
to a previous point, software developers created what is called backup software
or imaging software.

There are different methods of creating a backup of your partition or hard drive,
but this tutorial will only focus on one possibility, using a freeware tool
called Cobian Backup.


If you wish to receive a broader overview of the different forms of backing
up data, you can browse this excellent Wikipedia article on backups
or another one on images.


We hope you find this tutorial helpful.

I'd like to say "Thanks!" to YourHighness for his comment at my newsletter about Cobian Backup. One of my readers had asked for advice about the best free solutions.

I had written up a short review of Cobian a few weeks ago, but I never went into the detail that YourHighness has gone into here. I'd like to mention it in a follow up to the original article. I will provide a link to the tutorial at that time. Job well done!

Thanks again.

Well the tutorial says "how to backup and restore" but it stops after explaining how to backup. How about an example of how to restore, or is that obvious?
