    It makes a copy of every file on your computer, that way if your computer breaks, you lose a file, you want to go back to an older version of that file, or you get a new computer all of your files are on that disk and you can restore the files back from it.

    It's automated back up whenever the designated external drive is connected, it will back up; if you delete a file and wish to recover it, you can do so directly from the Time Machine external. Just restore what you need, and back up what you want.

    Go make you own thread. ;)

    Then you set up the network wrong and are using the wrong key.
