Are you playing it safe or slowly creating a Tsunami effect in your Apple computer?
If you are an Apple user since many years now or are a brand new Apple lover, one of the first things you should come to realize is what has brought you to the Apple computer, and how precious your equipment and data is to your life?
If you have both these answers clearly to your satisfaction then this article will only be a reminder of things you might already know or do with your Mac. If you are new to the Apple computer world, here is a very big suggestion and advice we, at 'Mac in Barcelona’, have encountered and given to our clientele over the years in the Apple business.
Whether in Belgium, where our main company has been existing for over 15 years now, or recently here while expanding our technical service in Barcelona, we ask you as a user to do a back-up of your computer every day! It is a must and so easy! We live in a digital world. So much gets stored on your computer which you surely don’t want to loose.
Let's ask ourselves, having most probably paid a reasonable amount of money for your device, whether it was for a Macbook, iMac model or an iPhone, how will it serve me in the most safe, easy, cost-effective way and this durable for a good amount of years?
Many users unfortunately in the Apple world are often not advised properly on which model to buy, to get the most out of their equipment. Once home or at the office, you have maybe installed it yourself or maybe a friend helped you. But one of the most important steps will be slowly fading or be forgotten over time and a busy schedule: a daily back-up of your data.
Use 'Time Machine' the way it was created for your Mac.
Why take a risk at losing your entire iPhoto library with all your most precious photos or your clientele data, just because your computer hard disk was silently filling up and is days away from a major crash? All you have to do is set it up from the start, in a way that it will do it even automatically for you. If you don't know how to do it, then let us help you.
Time machine is so easy to do. And you don't even need to remember to do it every day if you set-it up properly from the beginning.
- All you need is an external hard disk or if you are a light user possibly the 'Time Capsule' could be something for you.
- Maybe you even want a double back-up once a week or month to keep a back-up disk at a separate location.
- Whenever you feel you are not completely in control of your computer usage it could be a good idea to give us a call or write us a mail. And we will be happy to assist you and allow you to have a better Mac computer and to become a better user with your data safe.
After all, isn't your Mac device one of the most beautiful high-tech creations of our century, thanks to Steve Jobs. So why take a risk at creating a Tsunami when it was simply not necessary?
