• The Apple iMac computer comes with Apple Time Machine software, which makes it simple to back up your entire Apple Mac computer.

• Even if you have been advised to told that you do not need to back up your Apple iMac computer because you have the iMac backed up to the Apple iCloud, this is against the Apple guidelines.

How to use Apple Time Machine backup on your Apple Mac computer.

You can back up an Apple Mac computer using the built in Apple Time machine software to:

Either an external storage volume • to as NAS (network attached storage volume).

The external storage volume can be a USB-C drive with a USB adaptor cable for older Apple Macs.

Thunderbolt external drive for the ultimate backup speed, however USB C today is cost effective!

The storage drive technology can be either SSD (solid state drive) or a conventional mechanical drive.

  • Choose an SSD external backup storage volume if you travel with a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro laptop computer!
  • If you are good at dropping things, we all drop something at times, then if you are travelling with a Apple MacBook Air
