Backup & Recovery (Mac)
Backup & Recovery (MAC)
We look at strategies for backing up your computer. There are two motivating factors: (1) you could have a catastrophic hardware failure, (2) you may accidentally delete an important file. Topics are: terminology, discussion of backup software and recovery, frequency of backups, imaging a hard drive, and maintenance procedures that make backups easier and more effective. We will also go through the steps required to backup your Mac using Time Machine, the free software bundled with your operating system.
