Ways to backup Microsoft Office 2010
We all know, as computer users that backing up all our digital data, our confidential information lying in the hard disk of our PC in the form of files and folders is of utmost importance. A file may get damaged, corrupted or may get lost, while we are working and may cost us time, effort, and may be even our job. Yes, if things went out of hand, you never know where the repercussions may land us in. That is it for a file; imagine how inconvenient it could be if an application or a productivity suite on the whole were to get damaged! Beyond imagination, is it? Don’t worry anymore. There are ways in which you can get Microsoft Office 2010 backed up so that you had something to fall back upon, if situations turned nasty.
There are essentially two situations in which you could find yourself in. Either you will have a DVD to back up Microsoft Office 2010 or you may have to do it without a DVD. What will you do in either case? Read on to know about it all.
1. Online Backup
Visit the Microsoft official website link office.com/backup and click on the ‘Get Backup’ option available there. To be able to back up your productivity suite online, you have to keep your product key handy, as you will have to produce it when asked. This key should be valid and activated for you to be able to install and activate the software. Once you select the ‘Get Backup’ button, you will have to enter your product key and further enter the details of your Windows Live ID (create one if you don’t have it already). The only catch of having an online backup is that unless you have a high speed Internet connection to use, this attempt may not be easily successful and you may have to keep trying it many times. Although this option is available for free, a slow Internet connection or intermittent dropping in connection could frustrate you and also render the process a failure. In addition, although you can download the backup copy innumerable times, Microsoft definitely has a set limit, which you cannot exceed, depending on the number of licenses that you have purchased.
If you want to go ahead with the download, press on the Download option and wait for the process to complete. Since the files are large, it will take time. So, just sit back and relax. You will also be sent the download link in a confirmatory e-mail which you can save as reference for future use.
2. Backup without a DVD: Process to order a DVD
As mentioned in the previous point, if you did not have a Microsoft Office 2010 Backup DVD, you could opt for the online option or order for a DVD to do it. You can order the DVD from the Microsoft official website by allowing two week’s time for shipment. You will also have to pay a shipping charge, which varies according to the region you want it sent.
3. Microsoft Office 2010 Backup using a DVD
If you already have the backup DVD, keep it safe, you never know when you may need to use it. If you have ordered for one, wait until it reaches you and then keep it protected and handy. Now that you have the DVD in hand, you can use the backup as and when you may require it…
