Chapter 6. Using Backup

One thing that many long-time Mac users have learned the hard way is that you need to back up your data. Whether you're archiving files that you plan to delete from your Mac to free up space, or backing up important files for a project you're working on, the last thing you want to have happen is for your data to suddenly not be there when you need it.

The Backup application that comes with your .Mac membership is a powerful little program that takes on the task of backing up files to your iDisk, to removable media such as CDs, DVDs, and also to external USB, FireWire, or networked drives, including your iPod. This chapter provides you with a thorough overview of the Backup application, including information on what you should back up.
