Time Machine Tip

Have a document you've been working on for days or weeks? Did you delete a paragraph that you now wish you hadn't? Time Machine to the rescue.

Find the document in your Documents folder or wherever it is. Click once to highlight the file. Click on the Time Machine icon in the Dock.

Taah--daah. A window opens depicting a stack of files trailing off into the distance. Scroll back through them to find the version of the document prior to your deletions. Click the file. Rescued.

The term "data" is geek-speak for irreplaceable pictures, text documents , home movies, and pricey iTunes music libraries. Data loss due to hard-drive failures rarely come with advance signals from the drive. Data loss due to inadvertent deletions are relatively common.

The dog ate my homework, won't be in your lexicon with Time Machine on your Mac.
