Time machine is definitely the best way of creating a backup of your mac, but you will need to invest a little time and money. The easiest is to buy an external hard disk, of size according to your data size. When you connect your hard disk, you will see the following pop up: Click on “use as backup disk”.

If you data contains information you need to be encrypted, click on “encrypt backup disk”. Now, the backup process will start. It might take long if your data is big. So, be patient and make sure your mac has external power connected. When it’s done, you will know from the following message:

Close it and remove your hard disk. Now, time machine will make a backup every time you connect the hard disk.
