Use a Mac; setup Time Machine

Over the past few years, Psychiatry IT has noticed an abnormally high rate of computer hard drive failures, on iMac models. We highly recommend purchasing an external USB or wireless hard drive and using the built in Time Machine software.

By default, Time Machine backs up the whole computer. The backup can be used to restore an individual file, as it was on a specified date or to completely restore a failed computer, its data and applications to a replacement computer.
