    have you plugged it in?

    it should have its own backup software on it

    Windows has a backup utility which you can run on a schedule. Which O/S do you use?

    So have you looked to see if the backup program is installed? On some systems it wasn't by default but can be installed via your CD assuming you have one.

    Have a look here:-
