Not a lot of people are patient, understand, or practice it; but it is very necessary for someone to create backups for his files. There are too many reasons why a computer or a laptop my go haywire. The problem may stem from the hardware itself, perhaps the processor is no longer able to operate smoothly. There are also issues about software, where certain components are not compatible with the existing programs, and, in turn, they don’t run anymore or with some technical trouble. Of course, your computer can get infected by a virus or a malware. Simply put, you will always have the tendency to lose your files one way or the other.

That’s why you need to back things up. Fortunately, if you’re running a Mac OS X, you can make use of a free program called iBackup. This is a special utility that doesn’t only save all your documents or your work files, but also keep the original settings of your PC. You can also store firewall, desktop, dock, and time options of your computer. If you’re using other Apple products or services such as Bluetooth, iChat, iTunes, or Apple Mail, you may also save your preferences right into iBackup. When your system is being reconfigured, restored, or reformatted, all you need to do is to access the application. Since it’s web-based, you can do it anywhere and anytime.
