This bird uses pretty strict, layered security. Fer instance, there's both a hardware firewall (router) and a software firewall (built-in w/ OS-X or 3rd party, perhaps Intego), regular updates to OS (automatic w/ OS-X), always-on 3rd-party anti-virus, occasional on-demand anti-malware scans, and physical security (keeping the nest secure). Of course, there is also data security with regular backups.
But there may come a day when the OS gets so hosed that it is beyond any hope of repair. In Windowz one just applies the "Restore Point" and that usually works.
And one can also image the OS-drive - just like a full back-up - while it is known good and working.
For example, in Windows, one can use Shadow Protect, »www.storagecraft.com/shadow_prot ··· ktop.php
This is a lot like the Norton Ghost product.
• Yet I have not see an imaging product for Mac to restore the OS. Is there such a product?
I'd like to image my drive while it is all good and working onto another terrabyte drive to be careful.
Are there good solutions?--
Oh, I love the smell of fish. Guts, rotten, it's all good.
