Backing up Laptops

Dear MS
As we move towards quarter two, I would like to remind you all about the
HKIS Grade 5 – 8 ICT Student Use Expectation:

“I will be responsible for the back-up of my school related digital content.”

It is very important that all of you are actively backing up your data to a portable hard drive via the Time Machine application.
You will be in one of the below two situations:

Situation One

  • You are using your first (HKIS) laptop.
  • You are confident that all of your data (files and folders) are on your laptop.
    (most important)
  • You own a portable hard drive and are backing up via Time Machine – or need to start doing so.

NEXT STEPS

  • You now need to start / carry on backing up your laptop via Time Machine.
    This should be done on a weekly basis
    Below is a video explaining how to set-up / back up your laptop using time machine.

Situation Two

  • You are now using your second laptop.
  • All of your data (files and folders) has been transferred from your old laptop to your new laptop.
  • You are confident that all of your data (files and folders) are on your laptop. (most important)
  • Your back up drive has your old laptop’s data on it.
  • You have not yet backed up your new laptop.

NEXT STEPS

  • You need to erase the content on your back up disc.
    Below is a video showing you how to erase the content on your back up disc.
  • You need to start backing up your laptop via Time Machine.
    This should be done on a weekly basis
