    Should I back up files and documents


    Before installing windows 10 should I back up and or save my libraries, documents, pictures etc. and all the downloaded programs and files I currently use?

    Yes, ALWAYS backup your data (personal data, program settings, passwords, bookmarks, etc.) before doing a "big" upgrade like this.

    I have tried to back up but I keep on getting the error message "The system cannot find the file specified. (0x8007002)"
    What does this mean and how can I rectify it so I can perform a back up?
    Help would be gratefully received
