Backing Up Your Computer

  1. Open your Google Drive and create a new folder called "Backup". Create as many folders in there as you need for organization. We recommend creating folders for Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Pictures, and Videos.
  2. Open File Explorer and then go to your Documents Folder. Drag-and-Drop your important documents into your new Google Drive Documents folder.
  3. Repeat Step 2 for your Desktop, Downloads, Pictures, and Videos.
  4. When done, double-check to confirm that the files you want saved are now also visible in Google Drive. Refresh the page if necessary to see everything updated.
  5. Go to your Start Menu and look at your applications. Scroll through the list and make a note of the ones you use regularly and would need on a replacement computer.
  6. If you have any additional questions or need support, please contact the Help Desk.
