Time seems to slow down when some­thing cat­a­strophic goes wrong with your Mac. You know, that mo­ment when you re­alise, just as empty your Trash, that in­side lay your only copy of that im­por­tant doc­u­ment. Or as you watch your iPhone tum­ble to­wards a sink full of wa­ter.

Hap­pily, al­most no dis­as­ter is be­yond sav­ing, so in this is­sue we’re go­ing to show you the steps you can take to re­cover from even ap­par­ently ter­mi­nal calami­ties. And what’s more, since an ounce of pre­ven­tion is worth a pound of cure, we’ll show you the steps you can take to­day that guard against mis­for­tune in the future. By spend­ing just a few min­utes (and just a few pounds, in some cases), you can put pro­cesses and prac­tices in place that help keep you work­ing and having fun with your Mac and iOS de­vices with min­i­mal dis­rup­tions if dis­as­ter strikes. There’s a load of other great stuff in the is­sue too, as usual. Be sure to flick to page 18 to check out Matt’s in-depth preview of OS X 10.10 Yosemite (due in the au­tumn) to find out what’s com­ing next, es­pe­cially since if your Mac is ca­pa­ble of run­ning Mav­er­icks (OS X 10.9) it will run Yosemite too, and it’ll be a free up­grade!
