    hI!!!!
    dont be confused!!!!
    Creating back up will protect your data from any kind of damage or loss as you may have back ups.
    Windows 7 allows you yto back uo data and restore your system to an earlier junction where in the system setting will be restored to the date or point where you restore it to.
    However there is no point backing uo data on hard drive.right??? you need to back up and keep data in flash drive, external hard disk and further in online system of windows live sky drive.
    If you have further queries regarding how you can do the same you may consult the following link.if however you still find problems let me know.

    Friend, Windows Backup and Restore Feature will save your data. It save from loosing the information which is present on the Hard Disk.

    Back up is used to maintain data from Viruses or Intruders. Restore is used to bring back your Computer and it's data to the Point at which Restore Point has been Created.

    Whenever you face the problem of System Crash you may loose your data. If you Restore your Computer, then using the Restore Point you can bring back your Computer to the form which it was at the time of Restore Point.

    dear windows 7 provides features like system restore using which you can restore your system to earlier time when it was working properly. for this you can choose system restore from the system tool option and then you can choose the date and time at which you want to restore your system. this restoration takes place as windows automatically save all you data as a back up so that using restore tool you can get your data back and also so that your data could be saved protectively.

    Don't be confused. There is help option if you need any assistance.
    However, Back up and Restore feature will backup your all data, so that in future you will not feel any problem to restore that data.
    You can change in settings that which items are to be backup in dialog box of Backup and Restore.

    Hello,

    Backup and recovery are 2 different things.

    By creating a back up file you can actually save your important data .

    So when you format or in case of your data loss you can get it back.

    A recovery disk on the other hand helps in recovering your OS.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    dear friend,

    Don't be confused,because the recovery and back up are not the same things.

    if you make a copy or image of your files in a separate memory then it is called backup.

    If you lose these data anyhow,you can restore these from the backup location.

    But restoration is totally a different thing.

    It is a different kind of back up where you can save your OS copy.

    So both windows Backup and Restore feature saves your data from unwanted loosing.

    Hope these will help you a lot.
