You Need a Backup Strategy

The last 10 days have been a bit of a nightmare.

I woke up on July 4th to a computer that didn’t work and I wasn’t able to turn it on.

I typically have three backup solutions in place:

  • Apple’s Time Machine
  • Carbon Copy Cloner
  • Backblaze

But since this was a new computer I didn’t have a bootable backup of any of these. I didn’t lose any data, but it took a really long time to reconfigure a machine to be efficient for me to work on.

I purchased this SanDisk hard drive and it’s awesome! It took 4 minutes to transfer 100GB to my mac
