I am not sure what I would do without the “Time Capsule“! I think it has to be one of the best things Apple has ever created! For those of you who are not familiar with Apple’s time capsule . . . it is an external device that automatically backs up everything on your Mac wirelessly.
This past Friday my Macbook Pro drank to much coffee and crashed and burned. I rushed her to the nearest Apple store (which is about 2 hours away); they opened her up and confirmed that too much coffee was to blame; and all was lost on my laptop. The cost of repairs was almost as much as a new one.
So, with much despair I made the tough decision of laying my very first Macbook to eternal rest. I ended up with a new shiny Macbook Pro that is smaller in size but not in speed or memory. Now how did I not lose a single bit of data from the old Mac . . .the time capsule!
I was able to transfer all the data from my old Mac to the new one . . . it was a very simple process, but a very slow process! Well worth the wait . . . as my new Mac has all my information as my old Mac. All my apps, docs, and settings are here. It is simply amazing and yet kinda scary at the same time! But right now the time capsule is my favorite thing ever! Even though my Mac died . . . all my information is alive and well, just inside a new shiny Macbook Pro!
You never know when tragedy will happen . . . be prepared . . . and make sure that your information is backed up! And if you are an Apple person, then I insist that you invest in a time capsule . . . it will be well worth the investment!
