1. Launch Backup 2020
Once launched, available settings for your backup plan are shown on the left. Use the links to adjust the settings (1). If you need to back up your entire system drive, simply leave the settings untouched. The program will use any connected external storage device (flash drive, external hard disk) as default for your backups and store them under "Ashampoo Backups" on that drive. Click "Activate Plan" to start the backup process.
Naturally, you can always connect an external storage device later or change the output location for your backups by clicking the link next to "To this folder:", e.g. "< not yet specified >" (3).
2. Confirm changes
To activate the plan, you'll then need to confirm that the program can make the necessary changes to your system.
3. Ready to back up
Finally, click "OK" (1) to close the notification dialog. The program will then back up your files as specified in your plan. To instantly create a backup, click "Start backup now" (2).
