Backing Up Your Mac: A Joe On Tech Guide

Develop a bulletproof strategy for backing up your Mac that will enable you to recover your data easily when disaster strikes.

Hey, What's This?
We can focus our editorial attention on only so many books, so when our friend and longtime collaborator Joe Kissell proposed revisiting this topic and creating a new book on his own, we jumped at the chance to bring it to you alongside our Take Control titles. It's his book, not ours, so it looks a little different, but the content is great.

Joe Kissell has been writing about Mac backups since 2004. In this latest title, he explains the three components of a solid backup strategy and helps you figure out the best way to adapt that strategy to your needs. You’ll learn the hows and whys of backing up your Mac, understand the benefits and limitations of Time Machine (as well as alternatives to it), and discover how elements like bootable clones and cloud storage may factor into your overall setup. You’ll also discover how to deal with unusual backup needs and restore your data in an emergency. This book covers 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite.
