My Macbook Pro went on the nut today and I had to call Apple Tech support to get it out of it’s depression. But thankfully I had a fairly recent backup on Time Machine and it was a piece of cake getting my system restored back to normal.
The moral of the story is thou shall have your system backed up and all your application serial numbers stored on the cloud.
What I used to get back up and running…
- Xmarks -backs up and syncs all your bookmarks and passwords.
- Time Machine-OS X system restore tool that actually works.
- Evernote-stored all my application serial numbers here.
- Dropbox-backed images and text files.
