“Update: 6 hours later. Yes, I have neglected my laptop. I'm surprised by how many folks on IG I've come across who have lost all their files in a hard drive failure. Especially when it really is much easier to backup or clone a drive now. No coding, just click :) I use techtools for maintenance with diskwarrior. Carbon copy cloner (bombich.com) to keep a full, bootable recovery. One copy stays at home in a fire safe, the other travels with me. If your data isn't that valuable to you and you have a Mac, grab yourself an extra drive (LaCie has always worked for me) and plug it in. Your Mac does the rest :) Now, if I could just get it to clone me, I'd be all set!”
