After posting about Chromebook tips and tricks somebody emailed me asking for a good way to create a back-up for media and data stored on Chromebook. The one I have been using for sometime now with both my Chromebook and Mac is through using Chromebook Recovery Utility. This is a secured Chrome app created by Google engineers. Chromebook help centre page has this detailed guide on how to install and use the app.
Chromebook Recovery Utility allows you to create (or clone) a recovery image that contains all the data on your Chromebook. You can save this image into a flash drive or any other media storage device that can hold at least 4 GB. Once saved, anytime you have a problem with Chromebook you can simply use your saved image to restore all your data.
This is, in brief, how to go about using this method. For more details, check out this page:
