Hello there you can install the iCloud app on your W7 computer and sync a few items (see attached photo)

If you want to back up major data then you should look at a professional cloud backup service such as Acronis

Bear in mind that backing up to the cloud can take a lot of time depending on your upload Internet connection. Also the data costs must be taken into account.

It's best to back up locally to a plug in drive. If mission critical stuff you should back up to two pieces of equipment and keep one off site. Bear in mind that the age of your back up will be when you last backed up so if this is business stuff, you should back up on a daily basis.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
