How to Backup a Mac with Time Machine

This video will show you how to Backup a Mac with Time Machine.

Hi All
I thought I would do a video on how to Backup a Mac with Time Machine. For those that don’t know what Time Machine is, its a free app that comes with Mac OS X and it allows you to backup all the data on your Mac to an external hard drive.
Usually a USB drive is used to back up too, however some Mac’s have a Firewire port and a Firewire drive can be used for a backup in this case. You can also backup to a network server drive or any non-bootable volume which has been formatted with Apple’s HFS Extended format.

When you buy an external hard drive to backup the data, make sure you purchase one with allot of storage space. If the drive is new it will pop up with a prompt and ask you if you want to use this drive as a backup drive?
At this stage you can just hit the backup now and Time Machine will do the rest.

To start it Manually. Go into System Preferences and click on the Time Machine app.

Both phones will be available for purchase from Apple as well as through the major providers Telstra, Optus and Vodafone as of September 20th. Australian telcos have yet to release their plans for the new iPhones.
While Apple have released two new versions of the iPhone, with the cheaper coming in at $739 it’s still clear that they bet on people paying far more for iPhones than for other handsets.

iPhone 5C
This low-cost model has been developed by Apple in a bid to compete with other cheap smartphones on the market, many of which use Google’s Android operating system.
Analysts will be keeping a close eye on the iPhone 5C to see just how it’s able to compete in China and other developing markets.
While it will start at $739 for 16 gigabytes of memory, the 32GB model will set you back $869. The 5C also has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, an A6 chip and 4-inch Retina display.

iPhone 5S
The iPhone 5S has a number of special features including a 64-bit A7 chip that will make this iPhone work twice as fast.
The 5S also comes with fingerprint-sensor technology on the phone’s home button.

The 5S has an 8-megapixel camera which also comes with a slow-motion video and burst photographic modes as well. Like the 5C the 5S has a 4-inch Retina display.
