I have a 2008 Mac, running Mac OS X 10.7.5. Want to use the OWC Mercury Elite as an external backup. Have it plugged into computer, but how do I run it?
Hi and Welcome. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

To confirm, When you connect it to your Mac, can you see a yellow icon with usb on your desktop ?

I see an OWC Mercury Elite icon and an OWC Shareware Collection icon.

Do you want to do manual backups or automatic backups of your Mac ?
Jeni I'd recommend to use Apple's Time Machine application. Time Machine will do automatic backups of your Mac at regular intervals. Open Time Machine application from Applications and then follow the onscreen instructions to backup with Time Machine.
