Arnold, CA…How to secure your data with a consistent backup program will be explored when the Sierra Macintosh Users Group (SMUG) moves back to its warm-weather location in Arnold for the Tuesday, April 9 meeting that will begin at 7 p.m. in the assembly room of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District, 1037 Blagen Rd., just off Highway 4.
Paul Keaton, SMUG’s Treasurer and Webmaster, will describe the various external hard drives and how to use them to protect your photos, emails, reports and other materials.
“There is nothing more important than making sure your stuff is not lost forever,” says Keaton. “It is not difficult to protect your data. It just takes the right equipment and discipline.”
As always, questions about any Apple products and applications will be welcomed.
SMUG meetings are designed for dues paying members but anyone is welcome to attend to see if they would like to join the group. SMUG was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. It meets the second Tuesday of the month, January through November. Annual dues are $20 for an individual or couple payable at the first of the year.
The organization exists to keep Apple users abreast of the latest developments and to address the nagging questions that arise from time to time. Its goal is to take the mystery out of computers and to enable members to take advantage of all the features their Mac products possess.
