What is Time Machine
Time Machine is the breakthrough automatic backup feature that's built right into OS X Lion. It keeps an up-to-date copy of everything onto an external drive. Backups are made every hour, every day, copying just the files that have changed since your last backup. This is all done in the background.
Time Machine can back up to any of these volumes:
USB 2.0 FireWire or Thunderbolt-based external hard drive
Secondary partition on your hard drive
Time Capsule (wireless hard drive + full-featured Wi-Fi base station that that works seamlessly with Time Machine)
Network Server (using Apple File Protocol (AFP) file sharing and Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later)
Specific Hard Drive Requirements?
Format: Mac OS Extended (most common), Mac OS Extended (Case sensitive, Journaled) or XSan
Partition Type: GUID (GPT) is recommended. Some partitions on Master Boot Record (MBR) disks may not be available for use.
True or False: You can exclude items from a Time Machine backup to save space on your backup disk.
How do you add an item to be excluded from time machine?
Choose Apple Menu > System Preferences.
Click Time Machine.
To specify an item that shouldn't be backed up, click Add (+), and then select one or more items. You can also drag items to the list. To remove an item from the list, select it, and then click Remove (-).
What are local snap shots?
OS X Lion lets you take the Time Machine experience with you when you're away from your Time Capsule or backup drive.
Time Machine keeps a spare copy of the files you create, modify, or delete right on your Mac. If you accidentally delete a file while on the road, you can recover it from a local copy.
Why are there different colored snapshot markers in time machine?
The purple snapshot markers on the right side of the Time Machine screen represent a backup. Local snapshots are represented by white markers (these only appear on portable computers).
There are two ways to enter the time machine: What are they?
Click the Time Machine icon in the Dock
Choose Enter Time Machine from the menu bar
(If you selected Show Time Machine status in the menu bar, in Time Machine preferences)
There are three ways to view your backup data in the Time Machine window: What are they?
1)Use the Timeline
True or False: You can delete items from your time machine backup user interface?
Turning on FileVault automatically encrypts a Time Machine backup. True or False?
False: You must choose to encrypt your backup disk if you wish for the data on both drives to be secure
