Chapter 2

Learning the Basics

This chapter gives some computing tips and provides important information about basic features.

Computing tips

❖ Save your work frequently.

Your work stays in the device’s temporary memory until you save it to the internal storage drive. If the network you are using goes down and you must restart your device to reconnect, or your battery runs out of charge while you are working, you will lose all work since you last saved.

See “Saving your work” on page 65 for further

information.

HINT: Some programs have an automatic save feature that can be activated. This feature saves your file to the internal storage drive at preset intervals. See your software documentation for details.

❖ Back up your files to external media on a regular basis.

Label the backup copies clearly and store them in a safe place.

It is easy to put off backing up because it takes time.

However, if your internal storage drive suddenly fails, you will lose all the data on it unless you have a separate backup copy. For more information, see

“Data and system configuration backup in the Windows® operating system” on page 123

.

❖ Use Error-checking and Disk Defragmenter regularly to check and optimize disk space and improve performance.

❖ Scan all new files for viruses.

This precaution is especially important for files you receive via external media, email, or download from the

Internet.

❖ Take frequent breaks to avoid repetitive-motion injuries and eyestrain.

❖ Do not turn off the device if a drive indicator light indicates a drive is active.

Turning off the device while it is reading from or writing to a disk may damage the disk, the drive, or both.

NOTE The Windows ® operating system records information, such as your desktop setup, during its shutdown procedure. If you do not let the Windows ® operating system shut down normally, details such as new icon positions may be lost.
