Our Next Meeting is on Zoom, Wednesday, 27th March, 7.30pm

Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac

The data on every Mac should be backed up to protect it against theft, software bugs, human error, and other problems. But there are lots of ways to back up data—some much better than others. Is Time Machine really enough? What about bootable duplicates, online backup services, and third-party backup tools? And how exactly would you go about restoring data if disaster struck?

In this presentation, Joe Kissell explores the range of options available and helps you find a strategy that balances data safety, ease of use, and cost.

Joe is the Owner/Publisher/Sometimes author of Take Control Books, and has a wealth of knowledge about everything Apple. Along with his wife, Morgen, he continues to expand the Take Control series while maintaining the essential ingredients that have made it incredibly successful from the very beginning. They live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada with their two sons and cat.
