My iMac’s hard drive crashed. I just checked my external hard drive, and it says the last successful backup was about a month ago. How do I get the data off of my external drive without restoring the computer back that far? There’s still some important stuff there.
What's that? You don't know what to do with all of those gigabytes that Apple gives you? Sure, it's only 5GB of free space (Although who are we kidding? We go nuts over 2GB!). But the iCloud back up service makes it so that you don’t have to connect your device to iTunes in order to keep things synced. We’ll show you how easy it can be to live cord-free with iOS 5.
You probably use Outlook for business, which makes it doubly important you save every message when moving to a new copy of Outlook on another Mac or after reinstalling OS X. Fortunately it’s easy to do even if you don’t use Time Machine or another method to back up your Mac’s drive.
Time Machine is great for everyday backups and simple file restores, but it only gives you the ability to restore your system after reinstalling OS X. But what if disaster hits, and you don't have this kind of luxury? A full clone of your Mac’s hard drive can really help get you back up and running in a matter of minutes. Read on to find out how to make a bootable clone of your Mac's main hard drive and come back from a data disaster.
With the Google+ announcement and the rush to get on the newest social networking service, Facebook may soon look like a wild west scene with a tumbleweed blowing in the wind (i.e. like how Myspace looks now).
If you're looking to migrate from Facebook to Google+ or you just want to backup your Facebook photos, we found an online tool that can help you out and save you some time.
Google Docs has become the ultimate go-to place when it comes to cloud document storage. The service not only enables you to access your documents and collaborate with other users, but you can also store important files to access anywhere. However, it's always a good idea to back up those documents if, say, your internet goes out, or if Google has another flub like when Gmail managed to accidentally delete a ton of users' emails. Fortunately, there's an easy solution for backing up your files to your hard drive.
Have you ever taken a photo with your iOS device, only to later find out that it is missing? Or perhaps you had to reset your iOS device before you could retrieve your photo? No problem! As long as you've synced your device, you can retrieve your photo from old iOS backups using a Mac application called Picturescue.
Over the course of 10 generations, Apple has turned the quaint music player software into a veritable media monolith -- complete with apps, video, books and even a virtual storefront where you can buy them all. But with each new version, subtle new features are often introduced and overlooked by the average user.
We’re big fans of companies actually giving their products names instead of alphanumeric gibberish—have you ever gone into a store and asked a salesperson for “the new WTF7331-74X?” Exactly. But, when you name your product the SuperHero, you’re putting yourself in the same league (Justice League?) as Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, and, to a lesser extent, Aquaman. It’s fitting, then, that the Iomega SuperHero is positioned to save the day if tragedy ever strikes your precious iPhone…but like all superheroes, it must struggle with its own weaknesses.
