Backup Your Mac:
There are 2 efficient ways to backup your mac:
- Either by using Time Machine (or)
- With the help of your iCloud account
1. Back up your Mac using Time Machine:
Time Machine is the built-in service available on your Mac to take local backups. With the help of Time Machine, you’ll be able to back up your documents, applications, photos, and music albums automatically.
Follow along with the steps that are mentioned for successful backup:
- First of all, plug an external drive such as a USB or a Thunderbolt device into your Mac.
- And then, head to the System Preferences and click on the Time Machine icon.
- Now click on “Select Backup Disk” to create the backup on the selected disk.
- By selecting the name of the disk, you’ll be prompted with the “Use Disk” option, and your mac will start creating a backup on its own.
2. Creating a backup with iCloud:
Your iCloud account allows you to store your local files on your iCloud drive on the go. You can choose to extend the storage capacity from the default-free 5 GB capacity. iCloud makes the backup accessible across all the devices that can access the internet, which is why we think it is the best way to create backups.
- To initiate, we will require you to reach out to the ‘System Preferences’ on your Mac.
- Clicking on the Apple ID icon will lead you to your Apple ID management, where you find the ‘iCloud’ in the left menu.
- Open the iCloud Drive “Options” and tick mark all the documents that you would like to back up. And tap Done, once you’re done finalizing it.
