View Full Version : What to save in back up

Oct 7, 2012, 04:09 AM
Hey everyone,

due to on-going wifi issues with my iMac I am going to try starting a fresh my iMac and install a fresh copy of lion and upgrading before adding my files manually.

The wifi issues seem to reappear when I restore so I want to manually save my files and then add them again when I get the new imac running. Im just wondering if people could advise me on stuff to save and tell me if Im missing anything?

I mainly have:

Music and apps (iTunes folder)
Photos (Aperture)
iPhone and iPad back ups

Im fine with saving music, apps and emails but unsure about how to save my back ups and photos. So:

1. How to I save my entire aperture library
2. How do I save my iphone backup to transfer to another machine?
