With the introduction of iCloud Drive Desktop and Documents sync in macOS Sierra, I felt it was time to revisit the how, what and where of backups.

Even with the prevalence of online backups and services, local backups are still advisable including bootable backups if you want to get back working in a hurry. In this episode, I take you through the principles of creating a local bootable backup to a USB drive, as well as setting up a Time Machine backup to the same USB drive.

In addition, I demonstrate using a NAS or Network Attached Storage device (in my case a Synology NAS) as an expandable Time Machine Backup.

Another requirement is to sometimes backup or sync files across two Macs or more, and I demonstrate setting this up using ChronoSync and ChronoAgent on your Mac.

Finally, I take a look at the recent changes to iCloud Drive with Desktop and Documents sync and assess how these changes impact on your backup strategy, as well as demonstrating how to restore deleted files and folders from iCloud Drive within the 30 day limit.

One of my most used applications this week - ChronoSync. ChronoSync is an application I use daily to backup and synchronise my data between my Macs, my Drobo and my Synology NAS server. Highly configurable and customisable, it's really simple to set up synchronisation documents to undertake a variety of tasks. Once created, simply use ChronoSyncs built in scheduler to automate the process.

I also take a look at ChronoAgent, optional software you can install on your Mac targets to give you even more control and flexibility.

Econ Technologies have just released a new app for the iPad - InterConneX - that allows you to utilise ChronoSync and ChronoAgent to sync or access files between your Mac and your iPad, or even iPad to iPad. I take a brief look at this in this week's Mac show but explore further in this week's iOS show.

InterConneX is a new iPad application from Econ Technologies - the developers of ChronoSync and ChronoAgent. So now you can access, sync and organise your files from your Mac to your iPad and back again. You can also sync and transfer your files from one iPad to another.

InterConneX allows you to create "Sharespaces" - centralised containers on your iPad. You can create local Sharespaces , remote Sharespaces to share with other iPads or ChronoAgent Sharespaces to view and access files on your Mac from your iPad. With ChronoSync, you can synchronise files directly from your Mac to your iPad.

The Sharespaces can be private or public, and optionally secured with a username and password. The possibilities are mind blowing!
