    Hi All

    How do you setup time machine to back up your HD

    Do you need an external HD?

    When I click on Time machine and "setup time machine"

    Then choose backup disk

    It searches for wireless devices and doesnt locate my HD

    Thanks

    a little digging around on apple.com/support will yield articles on how to use features such as Time Machine.

    Yes, you need an external HD in order to use Time Machine. Once you plug that in (and preferably format it as Time Machine will request), Time Machine will set up the drive accordingly and begin backing up automatically.
