Time Machine is unique among most backup applications in that it captures exactly what was on your Mac on any day in the past, making it easy to recover files, emails or media that may have been inadvertently deleted.While what Time Machine does is surprisingly complex, setting it up and using this feature is quite simple.This is also easy to set up; check the “Encrypt Backup Disk” box as seen in the image above, then provide a password when prompted.The external disk you have purchased from OWC may or may not be formatted in the format that Time Machine needs.The process of setting up Time Machine to work with an Air Port Time Capsule or other Network Attached Storage is different.

Time Machine can back up to many devices: • An external hard drive or solid state drive connected to the Mac over USB, Fire Wire or Thunderbolt.• An Apple Air Port Time Capsule or an OS X Server on the same network as your Mac.How often does Time Machine back up your Mac, and for how long?The preference pane looks like this: Click the “Select Backup Disk” button, and something similar to the screen seen below appears: The Air Port Time Capsule should appear as one of the Available Disks.If it doesn’t appear, click Other Air Port Time Capsule to select yours.

Be sure to leave your Mac on so that Time Machine is able to capture all of the information.
