The subject for the final lesson of the week was ‘backups’. The participant’s learnt the importance of backups, including how to keep backups up-to-date and why you should have more than one backup.

We learnt how to use File History and the Windows Backup and Restore Centre for automatic backups. Both these tools are included in Windows. We also learnt how to manually backup important files onto a USB stick or external hard drive.

The classes run earlier in the week covered:

The classes were a little more advanced than previous years but participants were keen to learn – and weren’t too shy to ask any follow up questions. Positive feedback was received at the end of each session.

Here are some images from throughout the week.

It was a great week for all, and I look forward to doing it all again in 2017!
