I was a bit under the weather, then I was good for a day or so, and then the weather crashed down on us.
As to how long it will take, it depends on how much you have to backup.
First you need to go thru and just copy all the pictures and documents that you have to the CD. Then open your browsers and export your favorites to the CD. Then if you use an e-mail client to send and receive e-mail with, you will have to backup that. If you let me know what e-mail client you use, I can get instructions. If you use web mail, then don't worry about it. Then you need to look at the software you run, and if any of them have databases that contain personal information, that needs to be backed up. This includes software for tracking diabetes's, diet, exercise, or anything else along those lines.
Basically you need to backup anything that you cannot afford to loose. If you have something that you don't know how to save, let me know the program and I will find instructions for you.
Is this what you needed?
