While most people understand why backups are important and many understand at least one way of backing up, there’s more here than meets the eye. How reliable are your backups? What happens when you actually need to restore? Is Network-Attached Storage (NAS) something you should use? Most importantly: are you properly prepared for the day *after* the day disaster strikes? Dave Hamilton will answer these questions and more. Discussing not only Apple’s Time Machine, but alternative options including clouds, clones and copies, he’ll teach you the ins and outs of what options are available, helping you decide the best way to safeguard YOUR computing life.
