A great way to back up important information like photos and documents saved on your computer is to burn them to a blank DVD. Computers tend to crash from time to time, and with hackers constantly inventing new viruses your computer may get infected, destroying your files. Using a blank recordable DVD to store important information that you want to keep or share with others ensures that if something happens to your computer, you have a copy of the files.
Purchase a case of blank recordable DVD-R discs. These come in a variety of sizes, so you buy a pack with five discs or a pack with 100. You can find these at most office supply stores or electronics stores.
