It’s just a fact of life not enough people do the things they really need to. Whether it’s saving money, eating right, or backing up their PC.

Backing up your computer might seem like a tough task, how ever using the right automatic backup program makes the process simple and hands free. In this article I want to give you an overview of just how painless and easy it is to backup your important data, and how fast it is to get started.

Download your Automatic Backup Software

There’s a variety of companies that offer this service, but I suggest you use an online backup service for your needs. Why? They all offer an automatic backup service, and it stores your important files and data at an off site location.

Get started by visiting either Carbonite or Mozy Online to sign up for a free trial.To learn more about exactly how these online backup programs work you can check out our Carbonite review, or read reviews on all of the top online back services at our website.

Once you sign up for your free trial you’ll be able to download their free automatic backup program for your desktop.

Select your Files to Backup

After you have downloaded and installed the backup software application you’ll be ready to choose which files you want backed up. Most programs will automatically select your My Documents folder.If there are files in other areas of you PC that you want to ensure are backed up you will need to tell the program about those folders and files and where they are located.

Start Backing up now

Now we’re ready for the best part, you’ve setup the program, told the application what files to backup and you’re almost done.The first upload of your backup could take several hours to a day to complete. How ever that’s it, the longest part is the initial transfer of all your files and folders.Once that’s done the automatic backup program will upload newly added files to your backup directories, or upload new versions of files that are already backed up all automatically.

Everything will happen automatically behind the scenes while you do your day-to-day work on your computer.
