Hi Kerry Joe - welcome to the forum! :) First, you really need to learn how to write a 'quality post', especially as your initial introduction to the forum - pleased review Writing a Quality Post.

Second, in view of the above link, please provide more information: 1) What Mac laptop do you own (model/year); 2) Your OS X is stated which is good; 2) How long have you owned this computer and how have you tried to learn about it & the OS; 3) Do you have a current 'backup' strategy; if so, what (e.g. Time Machine); and 4) What have you tried?

Backup can be done to external hard drives or solid state storage devices (such as USB drives) or done online (e.g. I use Carbonite - google if interested, for secondary backup of my wife's important files on our iMac); your personal information can be found in specific folders in Finder, e.g. Music, Pictures, & Documents - you could simply plug in a USB thumb drive (w/ sufficient capacity) and drag those folders to the mounted drive. Let me stop there so you can respond - Dave
