Nope, system resore has been around in certain forms for at least 17 years.

Now, what it looks like right now is what came with windows 95.

Darur: Not saying it's a windows ripoff, just saying how I hate that they market products that allready existed as new and completely invented by themselves. (and as if PC's don't have comparable systems)

Don't you need a back up drive for time machine though?

Uh. I'm pretty sure it was introduced with XP, not 95.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_restore

My bad, ME. But yeah. Definitely not 95.

So yeah, 8-9 years.

I saw something on the net a few weeks ago comparing system restore to time machine and it said that remaints of it have been around for 17 years. I can look for it if you really want me to but otherwise...

in my entire life experience of computing, osx > windows

its my opinion, i think its superior, it doesnt suck, i dont have to worry about it, it always works and i dont care what you use...its your loss

and in all honesty i dont care what you say...theres no reason to run linux than to be different and have bragging rights...if you're hardcore computer nerd/programmer go for it but then thats a whole 'nudda story

windows isnt bad...i have no problems with using it...i just feel my mac is more reliable...i can always rely on it... what i want from a computer it does flawlessly

Yes. Drives are cheap now, and getting cheaper everyday. Dont be an idiot and buy an external like a onetouch, just buy a drive and an enclosure. I have two 320gigs on my desk beside me.

I back all my data up using my USB hard drive and Microsoft's SyncToy. I set it to backup all user files. It checks the version on my hard disc versus the version on the backup drive, and only copies it if there is a difference. I don't bother backing up the OS or any programs.

I could use a more sophisticated program that images the drive, but I don't see the need.
