Time Machine Question
- Member Since
- Mar 12, 2007
Recently purchased a new iMac. My MacBook was running tiger so I was backing up with SuperDuper. I am now using Time Machine and Im wondering if I should do anything other then letting it run. If my main drive fails and I replace it can I just plug in my external time machine backup and everything will be restored? itunes, iphoto, dashboard, address book, etc?

Time Machine allows you to do a full system restore in case something happens to your main drive.
There is a lot of good stuff on the site below.
Apple - Support - Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard Time Machine
To be honest, I believe Time Machine and apps. like SuperDuper are complimentary when it comes to recovery from data loss.
McBieA computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
