A lot has changed for backing up your Mac since Dave Hamilton last spoke on the subject to PMUG. Dave will talk about all the current options: Time Machine, Cloud Backups, Clones, and Network Storage Devices.

He will also give guidance on what to use, when to use it, and how to make sure you’re covered without driving yourself nuts in the process. He will also be happy to answer all your backup questions. Dave is always a blast, so you won’t want to miss his presentation!
