Microsoft gives Windows users a couple of options to backup their important pictures and files on their PCs. While they each have different security features, best practice is to supplement Microsoft's options with additional cloud protection.
Windows Backup is a utility that comes prepackaged with Windows. It’s available through the Control Panel and it enables you to make backup copies of all your files. When you launch the utility, a software wizard helps you set up automatic backups and configure settings. And Microsoft recommends, for good reason, using a separate disk for backups for added security.
Microsoft 365 users have access to OneDrive, Microsoft’s file hosting platform. It’s essentially a cloud storage service that includes file sync and share features. Like other file sync and share services, OneDrive will only protect the files you upload when using it.
