Can You Stop People from Adding You to Groups on
Can’t I Just Copy Everything to Back Up?
Only if you really can copy everything. (Spoiler:
(also not considered with just copying files of
your work, is: 1) if your hdd/sdd dies or is so messed up by
anything, you may have to have a copy of windows you can
re-install, then do your configuration changes you previously had,
along with updates not in the re-installed copy, 2) all programs
you can remember you had have to be re-installed (best if fresh
up-to-date copies) and any custom changes you previously had, 3)
copy back all the files you did have copies of that are needed in
the short term, not stuff you have not touched in more than six
months. This, unless to exclude all your normal life
activities, will likely take up to three days for recovery, and
you still likely had some loss besides what you couldn't do while
you were recovering. Much of this also requires a good
memory of every change you ever made since the last clean install
or recovery from a major disaster.)
