Backup Data Using BitDefender Total Security

Apart from protecting your computer system against malicious threats, virus attacks, and intrusions, the BitDefender Total Security application is also capable of backing up the data that the hard disk of your computer has.

Just like any other efficient third-party data backup solution, the built-in backup feature that the BitDefender Total Security program has also includes various restoration features that become quite handy once a backup is successfully taken.

Although the BitDefender Total Security backup interface is quite intuitive and user-friendly, it is strongly suggested that you should have proper knowledge about the data backup and restore process, especially if you are using the application to back up the data in production environments in an organization. If you are using the BitDefender Total Security program at home and want to backup your personal data, no such technical qualifications or backup and restore skills are required.

Nonetheless, while using the BitDefender Total Security built-in backup feature, you should take utmost care as what data should be backed up. You might want to do so in order to keep the size of your backup file as small as possible so that it is easy to transport or store at a secure location.

Added advantage of using the built-in backup feature that the BitDefender Total Security application has is that the data is likely to be scanned by the anti-virus itself before the actual backup process takes place.

By following the instructions given in this tutorial, you will be able to back up your data using the BitDefender Total Security application.

Here is how:

    ■Log on to the computer on which you want to back up the data using the BitDefender Total Security application.

    ■Initialize the BitDefender Total Security program by double-clicking its icon. (BitDefender Total Security 2010 is used for this demonstration.).

    ■On the opened interface, from the left pane, click to select the Backup category.

    ■From the right pane, under the Backup Tasks section, click the Backup Locally button.



    ■On the opened User Account Control confirmation box, click the Yes button to provide your consent to continue.

    ■On the opened BitDefender Local Backup interface, in the Welcome window, click Next to continue.

    ■On the Choose what to backup window that comes next, check the checkboxes representing the objects that you want to backup.



    ■Click on Next to proceed.

    ■On the Choose where to backup window, click to select the appropriate radio button as desired. (Backup data on my computer radio button is selected for this demonstration.).



    ■On the Select Destination box, choose the destination location where you want the backup file to be saved.

    ■Click OK to confirm the selection.



    ■Back on the previous box, you can either keep the default radio button selected to initiate the backup process for just one time. Alternatively you can also click to select the Backup the data on a schedule I specify radio button and set a schedule in order to initialize the backup task on a regular basis.

    ■Click Next to continue.



    ■On the opened Summary window, in the Task name field, specify a name for the current backup task.

    ■Click the Start Backup button to start the backup process.
