As computers play an important role in our daily life and work, data stored on the computer become more and more important.

The safest way, I think, is to make a copy of your disk.

At this time, some people may say they are dynamic disk users and they cannot make dynamic volume copy with software but backup important files and data manually while backing up manually will cost a large amount of time.
