I need to restore my Macbook Pro and never set up Time Machine. I wanted to back up my photos on iPhoto and music on iTunes, and wanted to see what the best way to do it is. Unfortunately, I'm not planning to use Time Machine on the off chance that the problem will be saved onto Time Machine. I'm wondering if the only way to save my photos and music is to export them to my external hard drive. Also, after I restore my laptop, when I return the photos and music, will they be grouped together in the appropriate folders, or will I have to manually do it? Is there a way to minimize the amount of work I have to do? Thanks, any advice would be extremely helpful!
