Backup vs Back up
Backup vs Back up. If you want backup to your story, back up and tell me from the beginning. ErrNET provides all the copyediting backup you’ll ever need!
Back up means to bring to a standstill; to move backward; to reinforce, support or confirm; to duplicate (a computer file or program).
Backup means a person or thing that supports or reinforces another.
Using back up and backup correctly can get confusing. Don’t worry about memorizing the rules,
just use ErrNET to check your writing and everything will be just fine.
