Backup before updating to mountain lion

Once you've checked your hardware, it's time to check your software.

But it's taken until now for Apple to allow you to read the e-books you buy through the Apple store on your Mac.

The Apple Maps app has also been updated to make it easier to search for directions on your Mac and then send them to your i Phone.

” The basic answer is that if you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” or Mac OX 10.6 “Snow Leopard,” the answer is a Mac with at least an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, an “advanced” graphics processor, and (since Mountain Lion is 64-bit through and through) a logic board that can support a 64-bit kernel.

Mountain Lion will not load 32-bit kernel extensions…even if they’re graphics drivers. If you’re running Lion, click the “More Info” button in “About this Mac,” available in the Apple menu: your model description appears right at the top of the “Overview” panel.

If you're not, take five minutes to feel a deep sense of shame.

Now pick your head up and get started with the backup. Or you can use an Apple feature called "Time Capsule." To find it, go to "System Preferences" and then click on "Time Machine." From there, choose "Select Disk" and then pick your Time Capsule from the list.

First, you'll want to check that your Mac or Mac Book is actually compatible.
