So let's go ahead and detach our VHD file. I'll right-click on it down here. Click Detach VHD. Click OK, and now we're not connected to that VHD file anymore. And let's go ahead and close Disk Management and let's go back up to the root of the E drive. The other file is our backup file.Remember this does not contain the Windows system. All this contains is a backup of my user profile data. Basically it's a backup of C:\users. If I right-click on it and hit Open and elevate privileges, I can actually see the contents of the backup file. You can see that it uses basically an archive of zip files to contain the end user data. And if I wanted to I can browse through the file system and locate a specific file if I needed to that I could pull out. There's a better way to do it but this is an option. The better way to do it is to use the Backup and Restore utility to open up the backup file and select exactly which data you want to restore and restore it that way. We're not going to do that in this demonstration. Summary 13:31-13:50 That's it for this demo. In this demonstration, we talked about how to use the Windows Backup and Restore utility. We first talked about how to set up a backup and restore job within Control Panel and then we explored the system image backup set that was created during the backup process as well as the file backup that was created during the backup process. Creating Backups in Linux 0:00-4:29 In this demonstration, we're going to spend some time learning how to back up data on a Linux system. Now we're going to learn how to do this on an Ubuntu Linux system. It's one of the more popular Linux distributions around, but understand that the particular distribution you choose to use may use a completely different backup utility. Basically, every Linux distribution is slightly different, so you may see the backup utility we're going to use here on other distributions, but not on others. So let's begin by looking at where we're going to store the data we're going to back up. I've actually connected an external USB hard drive to the system and its name is Backups, and currently there's no information stored on it, it's blank and ready to go. So I've got my backup location set and ready to go. What I need to do now is run the backup utility. So I'll click on Search, I'll type in 'backup', and then click on the Backup utility. Now I have not backed this system up yet, so I have to turn backups on. It tells me, first of all, that there are no recent backupsavailable and no backups are currently scheduled. So the first thing I should probably do is enable automatic backups, so that it backs up on a regular schedule instead of waiting for me to get aroundto actually doing it, which I can promise you probably won't happen.

OK, so at this point we have automatic backups scheduled, but we still haven't specified what we're going to back up or where we're going to back it up to, so we need to come over here to Folders to Save and then specify which folders we're going to include in the backup process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
