“Take Control of Easy Backups in Leopard” helps readers set up an
easy backup strategy using Time Machine and other tools.

Ithaca, NY USA (November 30, 2007) — Leopard’s new Time Machine
backup feature is great, but there’s more to a secure backup strategy
than turning on Time Machine and hoping for the best. “Take Control
of Easy Backups in Leopard” 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. Most importantly, 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 $10 as a Web-based preview at
http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/leopard-easy-backup.html. Readers can
ask questions and make comments right in the text of the preview; a
final PDF will be released shortly as a free upgrade for all

Author Joe Kissell has been helping readers with backups since the
2004 release of his best-selling “Take Control of Mac OS X Backups,”
and this new ebook reflects his experience with the topic as well as
a huge amount of time that he’s spent testing and researching the
best options for backing up in Leopard.

“Joe completely walks readers through what to do” commented Take
Control editor-in-chief Tonya Engst. “His range is amazing, from
helping less experienced users feel comfortable to covering important
details for those who have been making backups for years.”
