Joe walks you through these important steps:

  • Identifying backup hardware that matches your needs and budget
  • Understanding the pros and cons of Time Machine, including nine situations where you'll want to go beyond Time Machine
  • Setting up your backup drive (or Time Capsule)
  • Configuring Time Machine
  • Making a bootable duplicate
  • Storing a backup offsite
  • Recovering your data

You'll also get tips for setting up ChronoSync, CrashPlan, Data Backup, QRecall, Retrospect, and Synk; find out how an online sync is (and isn't) like a backup; and find coupons for 10% off CrashPlan and a $30 discount on Data Backup.

In this book, you'll find answers to questions such as these:

  • What features should I look for in an external backup drive? And, should I use a Time Capsule, Apple's all-in-one Wi-Fi router and backup appliance?
  • Should I use an online "cloud" backup service, such as Backblaze, CrashPlan, or JungleDisk?
  • Should I use USB or FireWire to connect my backup drive?
  • What's a versioned backup, and why should I care?
  • Why is having a bootable duplicate important?
  • How can I easily and effectively keep an offsite backup?
  • Time Machine is acting strangely. What should I do?
  • How do I migrate existing backups to a Time Capsule?
  • What's the difference between an online sync and a backup?
  • How do I restore a file from TimeMachine?
