Part 13. Maintaining Your Mac

Part 13. Maintaining Your Mac

Most of the time your Mac just hums right along, cheerfully complying with your requests and sitting quietly in the corner when you're not using it. Every once in a while, however, even the best-behaved Mac needs a little maintenance or a minor repair. This part covers the basics of keeping your Mac happy and healthy.

In this part you'll learn how to fix disk errors and reformat disks—both removable disks and hard drives—as well as ways to remedy problems with Classic. Also covered are updating and installing system software, setting the date and time automatically, and calibrating your monitor for accurate color. Some of these techniques are one-time jobs (calibrating your monitor), and others are things you'll do on a regular basis (formatting removable disks).
