Back up your files by copying them to an external USB drive, or to a cloud storage service like OneDrive.
To back up to a USB drive, plug the drive into your Surface. Open File Explorer and drag your Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos folders to the USB drive. If you have files on your desktop or in other folders, copy those over too.
To backup to OneDrive, make sure your Surface is connected to the internet and select Start > OneDrive . Then open File Explorer and drag everything you want to back up into OneDrive.
- Note: If you're signed in to a Microsoft account, some things are automatically backed up. That includes apps from Microsoft Store, contacts, and accounts.
