Back up my Mac to a hard drive



Lets make a discussion about your problem. It’s really necessary to make a backup for all your data. Your Mac is not enabled by Apple time machine apps. So I suggest you to use Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper it cost you $27.95 With the help of any of this software you can create backup for your Mac so easily.

But I also suggest you a highly praised backup creator. I’m suggesting you about Disk utility- It is absolutely free and very easy to use. So you can make your back up with this easily.  Here I’m telling you step by step-

Start up from your Mac OS X Disk. In doing this, insert the CD into Mac and press down the c key while it restart.

Now select your language. When the menu bar open, select the Disk utility from the utilities menu.

After it open’s, you will have to choose your source. This is the hard drive you want to copy. When you have a source then choose the destination.

Now click restore. Just restart your PC.

Your backup hard drive just have been created.

Use a 3rd party cloning software which would back up all your data existing on hard disk drives and volumes. Use tools like Stellar Drive Clone which gives you option to clone your HDD to a volume (must be bigger in size), to a folder or to a network drive. 

You can also create a minimal system in which the drive clone utility copies all your essential operating system files so that you can access your Mac in case it get crashes.
