Time Machine Tip

You already know that Time Machine is Apple's effective automatic incremental backup and restore solution, included in Leopard and improved in Snow Leopard.  The innovative restore interface accessible to regular users is probably it's greatest achievement.

You may also know that you can attach a USB hard drive to your later Apple Airport Extreme so that multiple Macs can backup wirelessly to the same drive.

If you choose to do this, the first backups could take a long time.  Did you know that you can attach the hard drive to each Mac individually via USB, make the first time machine backup, and THEN move the hard drive to the Airport Extreme?  That way, you'll only be making your incremental backups wirelessly.

It Just Works.

Airport Extreme $169.95 and free shipping
