SuperDuper! backup to the rescue

My wife spent several hours capturing video on my Power Mac G5 last night. I went to use it this morning and couldn’t get the computer to reboot. Coincidence?

Running DiskWarrior didn’t fix things. My computer would startup, display the Apple symbol and proceed to a blue screen where it would hang. Luckily I cloned my startup drive using SuperDuper! a few weeks back and I could restore a copy of my system software. Apple’s Time Machine provided me with rest of the backups that I needed.

Don’t forget to backup your files if you use a computer to run your business. This is the second time in 10 years that having a backup system in place has saved my butt.
