Create a Time Machine backup

To create backups with Time Machine, all you need is an external storage device. After you connect the storage device and select it as your backup disk, Time Machine automatically makes hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups for all previous months. The oldest backups are deleted when your backup disk is full.

Time-Machine Points

  • The priciple is the same for all operating systems except iPhones and iPads.
  • If you have a laptop you may want a network drive so you are portable.
  • If you have a iMac or desktop then a attached storage.
  • A backup is a must for all devices
  • iPhones and iPads can backup to iCloud.
  • Computers require a local backup.
  • iCloud is a synconze method NOT a backup.

I would be happy to help with all of your backup needs.
