Chapter 9. Using Backup > Installing Backup

Installing Backup

Backup comes in two flavors: version 2 for Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later, and version 1.1 for Mac OS X 10.1. Sorry, Mac OS 9 users—you're out of luck on this one. In order to use Backup, you need a currently active .Mac account—either a full account for all features or a trial account for iDisk-only backup. Be sure your .Mac member name and password are entered in the .Mac section of System Preferences.

Backup's user interface is pretty basic—it asks where you want your backup files stored and shows you how much space is available there. It also lets you select what groups of files to back up, as well as add items, refresh your list, schedule backups, and eject the medium to which you're backing up all your files.
