The Mac Observer Publishes Downloadable Back Up Guide from Dr. Mac

by , 6:05 PM EDT, June 9th, 2006

The Mac Observer is proud to announce the release of Dr. Mac's Guide to Backing Up Your Mac, published by The Mac Observer. Written by Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus, this 40 page guide to everything you need to know about backing up your Mac is being simultaneously released as a downloadable PDF for US$3.99, and as a free, six chapter guide viewable on the Web.

"I've said it a million times and I'll say it again... There are only two kinds of Mac users -- those who have lost data and those who will lose data," wrote Dr. Mac in the guide. "If these files are not backed up -- somehow -- you run the very real risk of losing them forever."

In the guide that follows, Dr. Mac explains how to back up your Mac, including software you can use to automate the process, what kind of media to use (DVDs, CDs, hard drives, etc.), when to make your backups, and much more. Including screen shots and step by step instructions from the author of more than 40 books, this guide is as comprehensive as it is easy to use.

The Mac Observer is exploring a new publishing model for the release of this Guide by offering it for free on its Web site, as well as making it available for download as a printable and viewable off-line document for $3.99. The addition of a paid-for download adds to our ability to produce and publish comprehensive content like Dr. Mac's Guide to Backing Up Your Mac, while offering it for free on the Web maintains our TMO's tradition of publishing great advertising-supported content for our readers.

Buy the downloadable PDF of Dr. Mac's Guide to Backing Up Your Mac for $3.99.
