Resources: Set Up Time Machine Backups On Your MiniDrive
Here’s what you’ll be working your way towards:
You’ll-forget-it’s-there periodic backup of whatever you want onto your MiniDrive.
- Hit the Apple icon at the top-left of your computer and select System Preferences. In the popup select the Time Machine option.
- Choose ‘Select Backup Disk’ then select the MiniDrive and click ‘Use Disk’
- That’s it. Time Machine should automatically start backing up after 120 or so seconds (there’s a countdown in the information section relating to your new MiniDrive backup disk).
- If you’d like to tailor *what* gets backed up choose ‘Options’ and you’re given the choice of files and folders to exclude from the backup. A common choice is to exclude your Applications folder.
