Very basic post here.  This is for my mom, who has been having a hard time backing up files.  Mom, all you have to do is copy your files and then paste them in your backup drive.  It really is that simple.  You don’t have to use a backup program, but it can be nice to have such a program that automates the backup.  But if you just want to copy files from one drive to another, then just watch the video here.  This method is good for any type of file copying.  That’s all a backup is–just a copy.  There’s nothing magical about a backup versus a copy.  They are both the same.  So, if you need to make a one time, annual copy of all the images that you shot in one year, then you can certainly follow this method.  You with me?  Good.  Now, just watch the video.
