raymac46 Posted February 27, 2021 Share Posted February 27, 2021 Does anyone know how Apple's backup software works? My neighbor has a Mac that needs an O/S upgrade to use a new mouse he bought. Go figure. Apple will do that for him no charge apparently. But he needed to back up his data files. He ran a backup with Time Machine and it backed up 37 GB of 80 GB on his system. He doesn't know whether he got the files or the O/S or both, or how to see what's in the backup. He just went with the defaults, didn't select any particular files to back up.I don't know if he can even review the files in the backup. I assume that is possible. I know nothing about Macs, can't go see his system either because of COVID restrictions. He's got the backup on a USB external drive.
