...and if you are backing up your computer, are you sure your backup works?!
My Mac Mini crashed on Groundhog's Day. Like... really bad! Over the past three days, a lot of time was devoted to recovering lost data. You can read about it here...
My SSD failed and my Time Machine backup didn't work as expected. It was very tedious, but I managed to get my computer back to normal. I learned some lessons during this crash...
- I miss Snow Leopard. Heh, this version of Mac OS X seems newer than Sierra.
- SSDs are scary! Sure, they're fast. But when they break, they can break suddenly.
- If you're pushing your old Mac, while waiting for a new Mac, some preventative maintenance might help you get to your goal. (If I couldn't recover my Mac Mini, I might be buying an expensive MacBook Pro right now.)
- Check your backup! Time Machine is great. But it didn't work as expected. Running Disk Utilities might be a good idea. Multiple backups might be a good idea too.
Hey @jonathan – Maybe Hype should have iCloud support. It could be a good replacement for Dropbox.
