I am often asked if I have a backup of my Mac. And unfortunately for the person asking the question, I’m a little like the watchmaker who, when you ask him what time it is, he tells you how to make a watch. First the answer is definitely, “yes!”Lii Gear Tactical Admin pouch podKALLOY Aero seat post pillar 26,4 300mm vintage Stamped 1994 Alloy 303g NIB NOS In fact, I have 3 local backups of sorts.
I contend that you must have at least two different local backups, for two likely events:
- For the event that your hard drive fails and gets replaced.Adidas Womens Sports Trail Running Training Lace Up shoes Trainers Waterproof
- For the event that your Mac fails and you decide to replace it.2002 20 Dyno Gravity Games Edition Zone Bmx Freestyle Performer Promax Gt Dinky
And if you have the two backups that I suggest below, you can recover from either event in just a few minutes to an hour or so.
So if you haven’t already, purchase two external hard drives. CRAFT ESSENCE Men's Cycling Jersey Bike Top T-shirt Full Zip Short Sleeve Navy BThey should be the same storage capacity as the drive that you are backing up. I like the Lacie Thunderbolt drives for this purpose. But you may like another drive better, and that’s just fine. As long as the drives are reliable, your data will be safely stored for the day that disaster comes.
So without belaboring the point, I will tell you what my two backup systems and my bonus backup (my 3rd local backup).
- SuperDuper! – hard drive clone.
- Time Machine – Apple’s built-in backup system.

SuperDuper! is software that creates an exact bootable clone of your hard drive. You can find it at the Millet Wanaka Stretch Short W 8764 MIV7753 8764 Women's Mountain Clothing site. Let me tell you how this averted disaster for me on at least two occasions.

A few years back, I had an iMac that began failing after running for an hour or so. For a few days, the time to failure got a little shorter. I had a backup, but wasn’t looking forward to putting everything back on a new hard drive. I knew that cloning a drive was theoretically possible, but I had never put it to the test.
I began by searching for software that would make an exact, bootable copy of the hard drive. Brand New Garmin 010-01960-01 GT20-TM TransducerMy research turned up SuperDuper! I figured out that if I let the computer power down and cool off, it would run long enough to finish the cloning of the drive. That was fortunate, and not usually the way things work out.
I purchased an internal hard drive and connected it with an adapter that turns an internal drive into an external drive. Bonus:Bulk Lot 7x 26 Rear wheel with Rim Tape Tire Tube Reflectors Brand NEW. Nice.
Using SuperDuper!, I cloned the drive. When the clone finished, I rebooted the iMac and caused it to boot from the external drive.Cannondale Hollowgram SL Crankset 53 39T 10-Speed Chainring 172.5mm BB30 PF30 To my amazement, although much slower than the internal hard drive, the computer booted up and I saw my desktop screen exactly as I expected. Every icon in place.Bontrager Hubset Pair Disc Brake Mountain Sealed Front and Rear 28 Hole CLEAN I tried a few programs to convince myself that I had indeed cloned the drive. All of my little tests worked perfectly.
To finish the job, I found an explanation of how to replace the internal iMac drive on YouTube. I removed the failing drive from my iMac and put the cloned in its place. I closed everything up and powered up.
The iMac was working exactly as before the change, only better. The hard drive was faster and had a higher capacity. Win win.

This case, rather recently, made me glad that I follow my own rules of backing everything up (twice) before applying an OS X update. In this case, I was updating to El Capitan (OS X 10.11), so I made my usual SuperDuper! clone, as well as the Time Machine backup.
Upon installing the update, I got the spinning color wheel. After several attempts to restart the process, it stayed spinning over night. I made an appointment for the local Apple Genius Bar, hopefully they could help my finish the update.
They had never heard of a Retina Macbook Pro SSD drive failing–until that day. Apparently, by downloading the update,FIVE TEN IMPACT VXI NON-SPD MEN'S MOUNTAIN BIKE SHOES blueE YELLOW the drive accessed an area that had not previously been accessed. And so I was caught in a loop. The update had gotten to that spot where the old OS was no longer available,Diadora Mythos blueeShield Hip 3 w women running shoes 172859 c2126 but the new OS had not been fully installed.
The Apple Genius asked if I had a backup. I smiled and simply said yes. I wanted to tell him all about my various backup procedures, but I refrained.
So, the procedure at this point was to replace the SSD drive. Rear Wheel Bike Stopwatch Sugino Japan Kevlar chrono bike rear wheelWhen asked if I wanted them to restore from a backup, I declined. I knew that I might have better results with my SuperDuper! backup than with the Time Machine backup.
In this instance, where only the hard drive is being replaced, SuperDuper! is by far the easiest recovery. I followed the instructions on the Shirt-Pocket website:
- Boot from the external drive (a clone of my hard drive)
- Open SuperDuper! and tell it to restore everything
- Wait until SuperDuper! is done and quit.
- Shut down the computer
- Remove the external drive
- Boot the computer as normal
As I had experienced previously, everything came back exactly as it had been before the failure. I then updated to El Capitan without incident. I’m writing this post from that computer.

In this case, the hard drive may or may not have failed,Daiwa Tournament x 2000 ia spinning reel max BB but some other vital component has failed, and the best option is to replace the computer.

What was the third backup (of sorts) mentioned earlier? That’s the sync between my main computer and my travel computer.Titan F-6 Super+ Bench Shirt Size 46 bluee (F-6 with 2-PLY Super Katana Collar )That’s the topic of another post.
