    backup hard drive
    Hi, i really don't know much about computers.. to the point where I don't know how to backup my hard drive.


    I'm sending in my computer to apple to fix my lcd display, and they said to backup my harddrive b/c they might lose my files and applications.


    How do I backup my hard drive? thanks

    If by backing up your hard drive they mean backing up your valueable data, then simply back up all your data by burning it to CD-Rs or DVD-Rs. You can also get an external USB/Firewire harddrive and back up that way by moving all your data onto the external drive.

    The CD/DVD way is usually cheaper though.

    If you have an external hard drive with though space you could clone your hard drive to it.


    Carbon Copy Cloner is a nice piece of software to help you do it.

    If you have an ipod that has some empty space you can also back up onto the ipod.
