I agree. While there are online services, they won't help if internet access is unavailable. I recommend buying a hard drive and using Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable backup of your drive. If your drive ever dies, simply swap the drives and boot up. You can keep the backup current with incremental updates using any frequency you choose to schedule.Buy a hard drive.
You can buy a dropbox account that gives you up to 100 GB of online storage that is automatically synced with your laptop. It's quite expensive, $200/year, so I would recommend to buy an external HD!!!Hi,
I want to back-up my macbook pro. I don't have an external hdd nor time capsule. What are my options ? I want to back-up the entire hdd including music, photos, everything.
What's your budget? How much data? How safe do you want it to be/to what extents are you willing to go? How accessible (how quickly, etc) do you need your data to be? There are tons of options -- many more so if you're looking to layer options for the best protection of your data. Finding an option suited to you means that you need to provide much more info than you have so far.What are my options?
The quality of responses are directly related to the quality of your question. Backups, like anything else, aren't a one-size-fits-all thing. For example, I use a NAS with XRAID.Thank you master. I had never thought of that
