Why is it important to back up a file?
Backing up a file protects us from losing important information if the hard drive crashes or accidentally deletes files. This might be caused if the computer crashes or a virus infects the computer and start deleting files. Backing up files and removing them from your computer also provides space for new files. External hard drives or other high capacity backup devices can be used to do a complete hard drive back up.
