In this article, we’ll learn how to backup a Surface Pro X.
Surface Pro X is an unusual system, since it does not use an Intel or AMD processor commonly used in PCs. Instead, it uses an ARM processor, SQ1. This means that many traditional applications cannot run on it. This includes PC backup applications as well. Luckily, there is a solution.
We will show how to set up a complete backup of your Surface Pro X, which will automatically backup your entire Surface, including program files, user settings, profiles, emails, documents, pictures, music, favorites – everything you’ve got. And it fully supports ARM systems like Surface Pro X.
The product we will be using here is Zinstall FullBack Pro. It maintains an always up to date, complete backup of your entire ARM laptop, and keeps it safe at all times.
Here is how to set it up:
It really is that simple to keep your entire laptop safe.
So, what happens now?
Zinstall FullBack will first make a full backup of the entire computer.
After that, it will keep backing up the changes as you make them. So if you change a file, or install a new program, your backup will be updated with those changes. This is all done completely automatically. In fact, you probably won’t even feel it running. It is very efficient in handling just the changes made, and even protects the health of your hard drive, by minimizing the amount of reads and writes to it (this makes the drive live longer!)
If you get disconnected from your backup destination, that’s OK – Zinstall will patiently wait until you connect it again and continue backing everything up, automatically.
Of course, the real reason you have a backup is the restore part. How do you restore a single file that you’ve misplaced? And how do you restore everything if your computer crashes? Read on to find out.
So you were working on an important document, and now it’s gone. Fear not – that’s exactly why you have set up an automatic backup of your entire Surface Pro X! Here is what you do:
That’s it – your file is back and unharmed.
Surface Pro X does not have a lot of options for backup. This does not mean that you can skimp on it; any laptop can crash, even a Surface. Now, you can get it completely protected, and it takes about 5 minutes to set that up. You will thank yourself later for investing those 5 minutes today.
