Eas­ily back up your DVDs

Your guide Matt Hanson says… “Win­dows 10 doesn’t come with DVD backup soft­ware, but WinX DVD Rip­per Free Edi­tion is a great sub­sti­tute”

Windows Help & Advice - - NEWS -

There are many rea­sons why you’d want to con­vert your phys­i­cal DVDs into dig­i­tal files (a process known as ‘rip­ping').

Firstly, you can save space at home by putting those DVDs away in your garage or at­tic, as you can watch the dig­i­tal files in­stead. You’ll also be able to find what you’re look­ing for more eas­ily by search­ing for it on your PC rather than through DVD cases.

An­other ben­e­fit is that since DVDs can get eas­ily scratched or dam­aged, you will have a backup of any ir­re­place­able ones in your col­lec­tion in case the worst should hap­pen.

Fi­nally, con­vert­ing your DVDs to dig­i­tal files en­ables you to play them on de­vices that don’t have DVD drives – smart­phones, tablets and the grow­ing num­ber of lap­tops that don’t have DVD drives ei­ther.

WinX DVD Rip­per Free Edi­tion is an easy-to-use tool that will help you con­vert your DVDs in no time.

Matt’s best tip! It ’s il­le­gal to rip com­mer­cially avail­able DVDs, which may con­tain copy­righted ma­te­rial such as movies and TV shows.
