Everyone needs to back up their system and files.   I use the Tiimemachine, but still use two cloud -off site.    Computers, disks all of those crash and burn.  You need to do two things with any computer.
1. Anti-virus (I use Norton 360, but there are a lot of good.. Bitdefender, Kapersky, etc)
2. Back up your files.   

3. (a distant , notice the space) a battery back up such as an UPS - I use Cyberpower but you need it for the time the power goes down and you want your system to save your work.

I do use Time Machine, but I also use BackBlaze and the icloud that comes with the machine. The latter two are cloud based, off site.  Further you can go to the app store and see which would do the best for you ,  OR you can google " back up software for the mac."   https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Backup+software+for+the+mac

Gee a 72 year old man telling a "kid" how to find something he/she needs for the computer.   lol(1)

Dear WeatherCat fans of a certain rascally wagon,

S-S-S-S-Sufferin' Succotash!  Out of seed again!???   >:(

I purchase large quantities of seed infrequently to save time.  Today was the day to restock and my trusty wagon got the call:



80 pounds of bird seed lasts 6-8 weeks and is definitely wagon work.

Amazingly, a couple who had their SUV parked next to Biquette were fascinated.  It turns out the woman's mother had a wagon like Biquette.  So Biquette got her dose of compliments for the outing.  I hadn't planned on it, but I used my phone to take this photo:



Biquette wasn't by herself either.  On the way home I was able to exchange waves with 1960s Thunderbird and Mustang.  California is in a drought and PG&E is going to cut off our electricity on Wednesday through Thursday at least.  Still, when the weather is nice, and there isn't any other impending calamity, California classics can manage to get a bit of exercise!   [sun2]

Cheers, Edouard   [cheers1]

Dear socalbobb and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Since this is your first posting, welcome to the WeatherCat forum!

My Twitter posting from WeatherCat stopped awhile ago, with a SSL error. This may be due to the SSL libraries being outdated in Yosemite.

. . . . .

The mac that is running WeatherCat is running 10.10.5 (Yosemite). Is there a workaround for the SSL issues in Yosemite?

Unfortunately, I don't think there is any remedy to the problem you are observing than to upgrade your version of macOS.  Any chance this Mac could be upgraded to the next version of macOS which I believe was El Capitan?

Cheers, Edouard

Previously used SD but changed to CarbonCopyCloner over a year ago. Absolutely no problems, ever. Bootable backups automatically updated whenever any files change. Super easy to use and schedule. Extremely well supported by very helpful and knowledgeable dev. Worth every penny! ThU5:-)

I've used SuperDuper (www.shirt-pocket.com) for years. Once a month I do an incremental backup onto a USB pocket drive. I have three pocket drives and rotate them monthly to insure that I have a backup in case of them fails (they never have.) SuperDuper does a great job and also makes the drive bootable so that I can boot my Mac using the backup drive if my main drive fails. I highly recommend SuperDuper.

Cannot help with another software, but you can use disk utility to make example 2 partitions to your harddisk and use another partition for TimeMachine and another partition for store somethink else.
