How and when to back up your computer

To back up your computer, connect the external USB hard drive provided by the school. The back up process will begin automatically within a minute or two. You can also click on the Time Machine icon in the top left corner of the screen and choose 'Back up now.' This menu also provides the date or time of the most recent back up. It is best if you back up every 2-3 days to minimize the risk of lost information should your computer get damaged, lost, or stolen.
