Back up to USB

Please note: Back up to USB is not the recommended option for backing up your files. File Manager is cloud-based backup and allows for universal access in a secure environment and it is offsite to your premises and the files are easily recoverable. If your internet connection is slow then tether to your phone for a short time to back up - this will save you hours of time and effort should your alternate back up fail.
