You get home after a hard day’s work, flop onto the sofa with a cup of tea, and open up your Mac. You wait patiently….nothing happens. Mmm… You check the charger, the plug socket, press the start-up button again. Zilch! Mild panic starts to set in.
Then you remember your local IT guys at Blue Apple Systems – phew! Everything’s going to be fine. Next morning you make a quick phone call and pop down to Alfold to see Richard, pass him your precious laptop, confident that all will be sorted in a jiffy.
Then the question: “You do have a back-up of this machine, don’t you?” “Erm… well… I keep meaning to, but... It will still be okay, won’t it?”
Your life flashes before your eyes – wedding photos… kids’ birthday parties… years’ worth of company accounts... ARGHHHHHH!!!!
So – let’s talk about back-ups!
External Wi-fi Drive
A second option is an external wi-fi back-up drive (such as Apple Time Capsule). Once set up on your network, the system will back-up your files automatically. Sounds great! However, such systems can be notoriously unreliable, and you won’t necessarily know that the back-ups have stopped working until it’s too late and you really NEED the back-up… not so great!
This solution is not expensive, with hardware starting from around £60 to £70, and we can talk you through the process, show you how to use it, and offer on-going support as and when required.
If you would like to know more about a reliable back-up solution for your Mac, please contact Richard on 01403 753666 or Richard@b-apple.co.uk. We look forwards to hearing from you!
