Time Machine

What is this Time Machine

Time Machine is a backup software that is included in all of Apple’s macOS machines. This is specially designed to work with Apple’s Time Capsule. It is, however, compatible with any external storage (that is in a Mac filesystem format). When your Time Machine is connected to your Mac, managing it is a breeze.

When you do this through Mac Aid, not only can we source your external drive but we can also deliver and install. Thus taking all the stress and worry of doing it yourself.

I can do this myself, right?

Before getting started, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many Macs do I need to connect to the Time Machine?
  • How frequently do I need the backup to occur?
  • What storage space do I need on the external drive?
  • Is there anything else that I need to do?
