Below are the instructions I found on
the internet for using IFP. Is this correct or did I find
the wrong instructions? I get to the point of locating the
drive and Jaws is not able to read the plus sign or “add a
drive”. Is there a different way to use IFP?
Open the Start Menu and
click on Settings.
the Settings window, click on Update &
Security and then select Backup.
the Backup section, click on the Plus
symbol [+] next to the Add a Drive option
below Back Up Using File History. A
list of available drives will appear, and you choose the
external hard drive as the destination for your backup.
At this point, the option Add a Drive has
changed to Automatically Back Up My Files.
This is now the default, and while you can change the
setting, it’s recommended to leave it as is to ensure
automated, scheduled backups occur as planned.
Now you are ready to create your full image backup.
With the external hard drive connected:
to File History following the instructions above
on System Image Backup in the
3. Click Create
a System Image in the left panel
the setup wizard launches, assign the connected external
drive as your backup destination
select the partitions you want in this image backup, or
simply use the default
your settings and then click on Start Backup
If you want to keep your backup secure, using File
History for your backup means you’ll also have to become
familiar with Microsoft’s BitLocker app,
which you can find in the start menu. That will allow you to
encrypt the backup destination.
For greater security, it is worth
noting that other backup software like Acronis True Image
will automatically encrypt your files on your hard drive, in
transit to backup destination (either the cloud or an
external hard drive), and while in storage.
