Intego: Best Backup Your Data before Upgrading to Lion

Apple’s Senior VP of Worldwide Product Marketing, Phillip Schiller, said that the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is the “best version of OS X yet” and that “Lion makes upgrading a Mac easier than ever before; just launch the Mac App Store, buy Lion with your iTunes account, and the download and install process will begin automatically.”

Upgrading to Lion may be a straightforward process, but the simple truth of the matter is that you never know when something could go wrong and you could lose your data. That is why it pays to back your data up before upgrading to Lion, the eight major release of the Mac OS X operating system.

Before Lion was released to the public, Intego announced that it would update its products so that they are compatible with the operating system. A day before Lion hit the Mac App Store, Intego announced that all its products are fully compatible with Lion. The company that specializes in providing security solutions for Mac said at the time that before upgrading to Lion, users should update their Intego software to ensure it works flawlessly with Lion.

On Friday, two days after Lion was released to the public, Intego announced that before upgrading to Lion, users should back their data up to prevent any data loss accidents. Intego made the announcement on Friday because “a lot of people will take advantage of the weekend to upgrade their Macs to the new operating system.”

That gave Intego the chance to boast about the functionality its Intego Personal Backup (part of the Internet Security suite) has to offer. With Intego Personal Backup, users can:
- Clone the entire startup disk (create a bootable copy of the disk).
- Backup data to DVDs, network volumes, other computers, online servers, and any other device the Mac can read and write data to.
- Perform scheduled backup tasks.
- Keep files in sync between two Macs.

Intego called backing up your data before upgrading to Lion “the single most important thing to protect your files”.
