Mac Format - - SUBSCRIBE -

1 Se­lect your back­ups

Down­load Car­bon Copy Cloner from, un­pack and launch it, then work your way from left to right across the open­ing screen. Start by click­ing the Source box and se­lect the drive (or folder) you want to copy. Ide­ally this would be your in­ter­nal hard drive (ours is Macin­tosh HD).

2 Set the des­ti­na­tion

Click the Des­ti­na­tion box and pick the backup des­ti­na­tion. This should be an ex­ter­nal drive at­tached to your Mac that you can move off­site when com­plete. But you can use an­other folder or, if you se­lect New Disk Im­age, a NAS drive at­tached to your net­work.

3 Get au­to­mated

Click in the Sched­ule box and de­cide when you want to run the backup. Sched­ul­ing makes it eas­ier to re­mem­ber, but if you’re happy to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for this your­self, leave it set to ‘Do not run this task on a sched­ule’ and sim­ply click Clone to per­form the backup.
