Time Capsule . . .

By
Real Estate Agent with Affinity Real Estate, LLC

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!

Michele: Sorry about your MacBook, but it's a good thing you had the Time Capsule!  That sounds like a nifty device- Apple is good that way.  I believe Apple also offers backup storage of data in "the cloud" for a monthly fee.  The device is probably less expensive, at least over time.  Thanks for sharing!

Michele, I hope your new MAC is coffee/caffeine-free.  My external drive happily sits on my desk "just in case" I have to call on it's internal information.  I feel safer too.

Andrew, yeah my  poor old MAC, but loving the new one! I use the cloud too for some things and dropbox, but the time capsule saved everything else!

Paula no coffee for the new MAC. Yes, an external drive is a great peace of mind!
