No, Microsoft is not spying on you with Windows 10 | ZDNet
The Windows 10 privacy agreement doesn't mean Microsoft is secretly stealing the data from your hard disk. Where do people come up with these crazy ideas?

Having a backup is as important as having as having fire extinguisher or having locks on your doors! There are some good free programs on the net or even a basic backup already in some operating systems

Helping people with computers ... one answer at a time
Introduction

I believe that personally accessible technology is the foundation of humanity’s future. To that end I teach people to understand and safely use personal computers and related technology so that they can do more, be more, grow more and connect more than ever before, and be an active participant in that future. I do that by answering questions, educating on important topics and trends, and sharing my overall passion and excitement for the possibilities.

I’m Leo Notenboom and I have a deep desire to make computers and technology more accessible to the average person – a desire to replace the frustration that you probably feel too often with the sense of amazement andwonder I feel every day.

That’s why Ask Leo! exists.
