Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Second Edition

Set up a rock-solid backup strategy so that you can restore quickly and completely, no matter what catastrophe arises.

Read along as backup guru Joe Kissell helps you understand the three components of a solid backup strategy, implement that strategy to meet your specific needs, and understand the hows and whys of what you are doing, taking you far beyond the limited security of turning on Time Machine or copying a few files to a flash drive or cloud service. You'll also find details on how to test your backup system and restore from backup. Whether you're running 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, or 10.9 Mavericks you'll soon have a reliable, up-to-date backup system.

Bonus! The ebook includes money-saving coupons on ChronoSync, Data Backup 3, DollyDrive, QRecall, and Retrospect Desktop—see the FAQ tab below for details (and check out the Joe of Tech comic in the Contents & Intro tab!).

Mavericks reassurance: This book's publication date is a few months prior to the release of 10.9 Mavericks, but Joe says the book is good-to-go for Mavericks without an update. To read Joe's exact analysis, and learn just how minor the Mavericks changes are, click the Blog tab below.
