TidBITS Publishing today announced the availability of “Take Control of Easy Backups in Leopard,” by Joe Kissell. The new ebook helps Leopard users set up, manage, and restore backups using a simple plan that includes archiving, a bootable duplicate, and offsite backups. It offers thorough, step-by-step instructions for Time Machine, along with details that aren’t in Apple’s documentation, and it covers alternatives for cases where Time Machine isn’t the right solution. In addition, it explains clearly how to recover data from a backup. To help readers get started with backing up right away, the ebook is currently available for US$10 as a Web-based preview. A final PDF will be released shortly as a free upgrade for all customers.
