Chapter 6. Using Backup > Using Backup

6.5. Using Backup

Backup is installed on your Mac in the Applications folder (/Applications), and can be launched by double-clicking its icon in the Finder. Since you will be using Backup frequently, you should consider adding its icon to the Dock. To do so while Backup is running, Control-click on Backup's Dock icon and select Keep In Dock from the contextual menu that appears.

As Backup starts, it performs a check of your iDisk to look for a Backup that might be stored there. If no previous backups are found, a Backup directory is created on your iDisk to where backup data can be stored. In addition to the Backup directory, a dot file (._Backup) is also created at the root level of your iDisk.
