CDPUG Programming Director and a founding member of CDPUG, Spike Radway of Team Spike Consulting, LLC will show you how to be confident your Mac and PC are safely backed up, and that your valuable data is protected from loss. You will learn simple backup practices to help you avoid stress, and minimize downtime when that inevitable “something” goes wrong on deadline.

Spike will demonstrate blending multiple forms of local back ups including Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner, and off-site Cloud backups with Backblaze and Crashplan.

If you think crossing your fingers, putting files on USB drives, or throwing jobs in a free Dropbox account is a back up strategy, this meeting will help you get to a better place.

This program will focus mainly on the Mac platform, but guest speaker Ken Fanger of On Technology Partners will address backup basics for Windows users as well. We don’t want our non-fruit flavored members to be left out.
