After viewing Gary’s latest video “Getting started with Time Machine”, I have several questions. I just used used a restore from iCloud backup to setup a new iPad, in addition I used a manual backup of iTunes Media Library to setup iTunes on a new iMac. Question 1: Would I have to continue doing a manual backup of iTunes if I use Time Machine? Question 2: When Time Machine does its back up, are the following backups, after the initial backup, only adding/deleting information that is already on record? Question 3: Is the external drive only used for Time Machine only?
I share the iMac with my wife. We each have our own accounts. We use our iMac solely for research and very seldom for create documents, but if we do , we save the doc to a thumb.
I do want to back up the iMac and I have been researching the best method. Gary provided valuable info for Time Machine and if my concerns could be address, I will feel even better
