Computers can crash at any time and this can have nothing to do with our usage, just a machine malfunctioning. The trouble is: we loose all of our data should this happens 😦
To keep our data safe we require all students to back up frequently to a portable hard drive using the program Time Machine.
Below’s a video showing how to set this up.
The set up is easy and only takes a few minutes. The Time Machine application may take a long time to complete an initial back up as it has to copy all of the computer’s content (everything) to your portable hard drive.
Subsequent back ups are comparatively quick, dependent on the frequency of back up.
If you have any problems with this please see me asap.
