This is a very quick Windows 7 tip on how to add a file or folder to your Windows 7 libraries.

If you have watched the backup video, you will know that Windows 7 backup adds all the files and folders within it’s libraries to the backup as well as all the default windows folders, but what if you have moved one or more of your files or folders away from that default location?

Well, this walkthrough will show you how to add that moved data to your libraries so that you don’t have the worry of, was it was backed up or not.

So, below is a walkthrough and video of what is involved.
  1. Navigate to the file or folder you wish to add
  2. Right click the file or folder, then hover over the include in library
  3. Select the category you would like to add the file or folder too
That’s it, you should now see your data in the libraries window.
Windows will not move your data only make a copy of it in the library, you can add data as you were before and the folder or file will not have moved.

Thanks for watching.
