Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac cover

As I foreshadowed last week, the massively revised second edition of Backing Up Your Mac: A Joe On Tech Guide has been published. Although I originally thought this would be a minor update, I kept finding more things that had changed in the world of Mac backup hardware, software, and services. And, I wanted to incorporate a number of reader suggestions and requests. So the second edition has quite a bit of new stuff in it, and is also (of course) up to date with the latest version of OS X (soon to be macOS).

In the Take Control world, we normally charge an upgrade fee for new editions. I don’t mean to set a precedent for Joe On Tech guides, but for a variety of reasons it seemed like a better idea to offer this version as a free update to anyone who has the first edition. If you are such a person, you should already have received an email from me with instructions for downloading the new version (ahem, followed shortly thereafter by another message with the correct links!), but if not, please click the Check for Updates link on the next-to-last page for details.
