Prolific Mac author Joe Kissell starts the discussion of his newest effort, Take Control of Easy Mac Backups, by talking about why the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to review and revise your backup strategy and make appropriate adjustments. Joe covers the benefits of purging your files, long-term storage options and how they can both improve your backup performance. Snow Leopard has brought with it some changes when it comes to both Time Machine and bootable backups; Joe guides us through those, as well as names the online backup service that now scores 100 in his metadata tests, and why that is important for you. Joe also reviews how the evolution of hardware is changing your backup choices, including various encryption options.
