  • On the top navigation bar click on File then choose backup as shown in the diagram.
  • In the next box choose With Checking Errors
  • Click the drop down arrow in the Save In box and select the drive that is your USB Flash drive or external hard drive. Usually the Letter will be E:\ or F:\ or G:\ etc. The letter you want is the removable disk.
