Backing up the music hard disk

Regularly back up your music hard disk to a USB storage device; otherwise, the stored music might be lost if there is a fault on the hard disk.

When making a backup, make sure there is enough free disk space on the USB storage device.

Depending on the file size and number of tracks, backing up the music hard disk can take a long time. Therefore, it is best to perform the backup during a long trip. If there is no time to complete the backup, do not unplug the USB storage device.

The backup will resume on your next trip.
