Do Mac Books have a backup or restore prograM?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I am in the middle of trying to back up my Mac book. I use Office 2004 and I like entourage (which will later become just 'mail'). I want to know if there is a system restore or some kind of way to take a snap shot of my HD and later (hopefullly not) use it for the future. I am not looking for a simple drag and drop format. I am not really sure what is important on the desktop (being that it was once someone elses), so I want to make sure EVERYTHING is backed-up. I hope there is a simple (CHEAP or FREE) program that allows me to take a snap shot of my entire HD and with a simple "CLICK" it will restore it to when I last had it.

Thanks for your time.

Yes you can make a disk image of your drive from the disk utility, and use that disk to restore your system later. YOu will probably want to burn this image multiple CD's, or DVD depending on how many Gig's of data you have. THere is also Apples backup utility, but I think it's only available for dot mac users. You can go to apple dot com and look. THe best utility is time machine that coming in leopard though. You can watch a preview movie of it at Apple.com.

BTW, This is the Future Hardware forum., This discussion, and topic have no business in here what so ever. Next time use the MacOS forum.

Look at Backup...
