EASY way to Backup a MacBook Pro
Posted on 2013-06-15
Hi , i am new to Mac's, and my girlfriend owns one. I need to know which is a relatively easy way to doing a backup or a recovery option on a Mac before i try out a installation of Windows XP (like a dual boot or so...)
I want to have all the FILES safe before i do the installation. A Nice extra will be if the system with all the software installed can be restored to in case of a problem...
I have a SEAGATE External HD: Free Agent GoFlex Desk USB 3 and USB 2, 2 TB for PC and MAC... (i now there is one model just for MAC, but i use this one on my PC, just to store fiiles...
The computer specs are the following:
MAC BOOK PRO (around 2 or 3 years old...) (Model 8.1 ?)
Mac OS X version 10.6.8
Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Boot Rom Version: MBP91.0047.B27
