Part 9. Living Online > Backing Up to Your iDisk

Backing Up to Your iDisk

Copy Backup from the Software folder in your iDisk to your Applications folder and double-click it to open it.

Choose Back up to iDisk from the pop-up menu.

Click check boxes to select the files you want to back up. The total size of those files appears at the bottom of the window.

Click the Add button to include other files in the backup.

INTRODUCTION

Backing up your important files is a good thing, but you won't appreciate how good it is until you need that backup someday. In the meantime, take the experts' word for it—set up a backup routine and stick to it. If you're a .Mac member, you can automate backups to your iDisk with Apple's own Backup software.

When to Upgrade

Backup is great for home users or very small businesses that don't need to back up a lot of data. If you need to back up your entire hard drive daily, however, you should look into an industrial-strength backup program such as Retrospect (www.dantz.com).


Click the Update button if you've made changes to your files since you started Backup.

Click Backup Now to begin moving files to the iDisk.

Click the Schedule button to set a schedule for automatic backups.

Select a frequency, time, and day and click OK. Backup starts automatically at that time and backs up the files currently selected.
