Hi I am starting a new job and have bought a HP Elitebook running windows 10 Pro.

As I will have customer files stored I have been told to back up files regularly and ensure encryption is active. The  laptop has a ssd and a separate 200gb sd card.

I have set up bitlocker on both drives and can see it is enabled but the I.T. guy wants me to back up regularly and says I cannot used cloud based systems due to security. My thoughts are to use the 200gb sd card but when I go into Back up in settings it isn't available as an option. I don't really want to buy a separate usb when I have this sd card already as  part of the laptop and it is encrypted with bitlocker.

Can anyone help me?

Many thanks, Dave

Hello Dave ... my apologies for not responding sooner, usually I am same-day responder. I have been embroiled in a large project which has taken my attention. Are you still interested in suggestions for backup options? I can suggest some things if you are but I'm just checking before I launch into a detailed response. :cowboy:
