Hi and Welcome. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
From your description, it seems like you've backed up your whole hard disk - Macintosh HD
(or Mac HD icon). But we can confirm it by looking into the used size of the Iomega drive and then compare it with the used size of your Macintosh HD
. In your desktop, select your iomega icon, right click (control + click) on it and select Get Info
from the pop up menu. From the Get Info
window, check the Used Size.
Then check the size of the Mac HD same way. If they have same (or almost same) used size, then you've backed up everything.
I'd recommend to backup using Time Machine. Time Machine is far better than this manual backup method. With Time Machine your Mac will backup all files and applications AUTOMATICALLY and frequently. To setup Time Machine, follow the instructions in here : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1427
If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.
