How to take Time machine backup on Mac | step by step guide

Time machine on mac allows users to take hourly backup, weekly and monthly backup. All that you need is an external storage device like-

External hard drive or Airport extreme base station or Time capsule.

I would recommend that you go for minimum 1 Tb size hard disk.

For the following reason i find there time machine is the best alternate for taking backup on mac:

1. If there is no space left after multiple backup on storage device, then the earliest backup is deleted and storage space is automatically created.

2. Backup of additional data is created, so saves time and system resources in subsequent backup.

3. Time machine backup allows to take backup of operating system as well apart from data.

I will suggest you to dedicate a separate hard drive for the purpose of backup.

Steps explained in this tutorial are self explanatory, should you still have any problem, please feel free to revert back on the same through comment below.

Note: My personal recommendation – use a reliable external storage, at the end of the day backup of data is precious thing for all of us.

    Hi there.. thanks for the video. Short and sweet. Appreciate your efforts. Got a question for you. By mistake someone established remote desktop connection (i was fooled by someone) and they checked console and terminal and run netstat command with some parameter. Am pretty sure nothing was executed (i mean script) but they checked all IPs. They checked few things under Console as well. Am bit suspicious so formatting my apple. My question to you is that should i take a backup using time machine or simply copy the data in external usb drive and later copy data into macbook and may be erase and then start timemachine back up.

    The only reason for doing so is that no corrupt data is backed up and later restored.

    What you suggest?
