Time Machine is a Time Saver

If you've ever lost any important document or project on a computer disk you can empathize with me.  A co-worker found out today that he lost everything on his computer.  That hurts!

Anywho, today, in haste, I deleted a native file that I mistook for another file.  Hit in the gut. To redo the project would have took about 2 hours.

The good news is that I've been regularly backing up my system (about once a week) and did so this morning.  I never had to use Time Machine until today.  It worked like a charm and restored the project as if nothing happened.  

Thank you Apple for your genius.  Made me grateful in many ways.  I backed up and it paid off. I work in a place that appreciates Apple too.  


Any horror "information loss" stories?  Any "information saved" stories?

What are you backing up to? You have an external drive or what?

I really need to start using time machine too.

Hit me up sometime bro.
