Going Back in Time – “Time Machine” on the Macbook

The OS-X Leopard Time Machine Browser

A quick jot about the impressions of the Time Machine feature of OS-X 10.5 Leopard.

Apple has given me the tools to dissect my computing. 

  1. OS-X “Spaces” gives me the Linux-Like multiple desktops open for one user.
  2. Bootcamp” gives me the OS-X or Windows choice.
  3. and “Time Machine” gives me the dimension of being able to work with a file in its various past incarnations.

So my computing options are like a 3-D matrix – easy navigation through which Operating System, which Work Space and which point in time Back & Forth through Time Machine.

And most importantly after blowing up a couple hard disks is the full backup that resides on my Time Machine serviced External Drive.

Pretty neat options and rather well implemented.

  1. […] 5 – December – 2007 · No Comments Ok where did those 43 emails containing notes and article write-up outlines & stubs go to? I know I wasn’t at my best when I was trying to move them to their own folder last night…. but it turns out I managed to close OS-X Mail without pasting them anywhere!Essentially I Cut them and Dropped them in electronic ether…. bad move. They disappeared.Forty-Three articles in the making zapped by significant user error… or perhaps not?Enter OS-X 10.5’s TimeMachine Backup system.Painless to roll back to before I messed up.Simple to select the messages needed, and Clicked to Restore them.A bit of whirl and screens moving before the restored messages were restored to a special “Timemachine Restored Messages” folder.Check out my previous posting on Timemachine for more details!https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2007/10/30/time-machine-on-macbook/73SteveK9ZW […]
