What To Backup
Below is a listing of common file storage locations you may want to consider when backing up files on your computer. Be aware that this list may include applications that you do not have installed on your computer. Please note that when you see <profile> that this refers to your user name on the computer. For example, if I log in to the computer with the user name "john doe" then when I want to locate files for my user profile I will replace <profile> with john doe.
