When we require a backup of data, we usually make a copy of that file. Python supports file handling and allows users to handle files i.e., to read and write files, along with many other file handling options, to operate on files. Here we will learn how to copy a file using Python3.

Method 2 : copying data of file into another file
Copying data of one file to another file could also create a backup of file. Suppose the data of file is as below:
