    I would like to add that there is more data than on your Mac. Many of us have data “in the cloud”, which needs to be backed up as well. Think about Facebook, Twitter, Google Docs, etc. You don’t want to depend on those services to keep your data intact and available. The service might get discontinued, which happens all the time. If your only copy lives inside those online services, you’re SOL if that happens.

    What does “SOL” mean?

    I will substitute a different more “blog friendly” term for the first 4-letter word, but SOL basically means… Scat Out of Luck. Just for clarification other synonyms for that first word would include: dung, poo poo, feces, and fecal matter.
