Jordan and Johnny discuss accidental deletions, failing hard drives and lost or stolen Macs as being important reasons for backing up your data.
From Apple's own Time Machine, to make backups as simple as possible, Jordan suggests backup strategies that include Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! to incorporate clones into your backup regime.
Offsite backup solutions, such as Crashplan and BackBlaze, are explored with discussion turning to iTunes Match, iCloud, DropBox and Google Docs and their part in ensuring that your data is as safe as houses.
