The Time Machine on Mac OS Leopard
How many times have you wished you had not removed a file from your computers? With me it has happened several times. For example, I just finished some change in a file, then I make a copy of to another place. Sometime latter, I forget that and copy another file on the same location, therefore removing the old file.
This kind of situation has annoyed many people, and these are the things that give computers a bad reputation. Why is that there is no easy way to find the files you want?
If you have a Mac with the Leopard OS, this is something that will not be a problem anymore. Apple has introduced a new feature that will make the lives of everyone much easier, and avoid the fear of losing important information.
A time machine is a science fiction device that allows people to travel through time. For example, you can visit the distant past and see when your parents lived, and even make changes to the past...
If can get pretty complicated in the science fiction movies, but it is not difficult in the Mac. The time machine is a feature that allows one to see his of her files in the same way they were at any point of the past. Once the time machine is installed in a Mac, you can virtually travel back in time and find the file you are looking for.
Suppose for example that you can't find a file in your folders. You know, however, that the file was in your desktop three days ago. If you know this, it is all you need to find the file again: click on the time machine icon, say what date you want to search, and the desktop will change to the same configuration it was on the time you specified.
Not only the position of files, but also their contents will be displayed in the same way it was at that time. You will be able to copy, make changes, or restore those files, so that you can have access to them in your current computer configuration.
Using the time machine can not only be easy, but also essential for your work. With this feature of Leopard, you don't need to lose any file, even if you are not as organized. It has helped me a lot, and it can certainly improve your experience with the Mac.
