Well, you can either: a) get an external, or second internal HDD and just zip/rar the files (limited amount of space), b) burn them to DVD's (could get kinda expensive after a while), or c) get a complete HDD back-up program (like Norton Ghost or somethin), and save them in an alternate location.

I guess it depends on if you want access to the previous saved files later on. Those are some ways that I can think of, though. I'm sure that other members can think of other ways, as well.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Google Pixel XL

I do a backup, of my files, every month too. What I do, is have a backup hard drive. And then I back that up, on to DVD-RWs.

I am trying to copy files in to CD-RW disks. But files like ram files are not copying properly. Computer freezes every time.
