Summary
Set up a rock-solid backup strategy so that you can restore quickly and completely, no matter what catastrophe arises. Updated January 23, 2019 Creating and maintaining a solid backup plan is essential to anyone who uses a Mac, in order to prevent the loss of important data if disaster strikes--whether through hardware or software failure, theft, human error, or other mishap. In Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Third Edition , tech expert Joe Kissell explains how to design a sensible backup strategy, choose and configure the best backup hardware and software for your needs, and understand how to make your backups as painless as possible. His advice is equally useful to those who have never had a backup system and those whose backup systems are in need of an update. This book covers 10.9 Mavericks or later, including 10.14 Mojave.

Shop for hardware: For most users, hard drives make an excellent backup destination, but the range of options (sizes, interfaces, speeds, and more) can be bewildering. Joe helps you find the best backup hardware, whether it's individual hard drives, RAIDs, Drobo storage devices, Time Capsules, or NAS devices. Make and maintain backups: Once you've selected hardware and software, you'll need to know how to make your first backup, set up your backups to run unattended, and test them regularly to make sure they're working as they should. This includes both versioned backups (which contain old file versions and deleted files) and bootable clones. And, you'll learn about strategies for keeping extra backups offsite. Operate Time Machine: If you choose Time Machine for vers..
