Backed Up Your Mac Lately?

Apple Computers are great...Right?

 

But like any computer, the man-made parts are subject to failure for one reason or another and usually at a time you least expect it.

 

If you are NOT backing up your Mac on a regular schedule then you are at risk of LOSING EVERYTHING.

 

Those years of photos, documents and don't forget that awesome music collection. It's wise to have more than just one back up and with Apple offering a great price on iCloud Drive storage, you can back up those important, cherished items there...but you should also have a physical back up source such as an external hard drive and use Apple's Time Machine software or a Clone Utility to back-up your entire system in case of an internal hard drive failure.

 

Whether you choose one or both...you really should start some kind of back-up system now, rather than later, or you could be one of those customers that comes to me with a failed computer hard drive and are crying the blues because they had never backed anything up or had been slack in doing their back-ups even though they had an external drive for that very purpose.

 

I am able to retrieve data up to a point but if your hard drive will not spin up then it's a VERY expensive situation you're in if you want your data back. That entails sending the drive off to be repaired and the data retrieved at a very costly rate from an outside company.

To get started with a back-up system suited for your needs. It is not an expensive move to make and you will be glad you did...as long as you do the back-up once you're set up.
