We can do the same thing in my Home directory to restore the Linux Source Code folder that I accidentally deleted. I right-click, and I click on Restore Missing Files. It'll go through and try to findwhat has changed since the last time the backup was run. You can see that a folder is missing now, named Linux Source Code. I'm going to mark it, click Forward, click Restore. Provide my password, hit Close, and I see that my Linux Source Code folder has been restored. All of my files that I've beenworking on are there. Summary 3:18-3:21 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to restore data on a Linux system. Restoring Data on Mac OS 0:00-0:19 In this demonstration, we're going to look at how to restore data using Mac OS's backup tool, Time Machine. The system has already been configured to use Time Machine, and it's automatically creating backupson our external storage device. Let's now take a look at how we can use Time Machine to restore system data. Restoring Files and Folders 0:20-2:05 Let's open Finder and navigate to a folder that has files in it, our Work Documents folder. Now let's say we're clearing out all our old files and decided to delete our old work files. At this point, they're not deleted. We could open the Trash and restore them if we wanted, like this. But let's say we deleted them entirely, and emptied the Trash, and they're gone. Let's say in a couple of days your boss asks you for a particular document from one of your projects,and you realize that it was one of the files you decided to delete. Luckily, since we have Time Machine set up on this system, we can get that file back. To do this, we navigate to the folder where the file used to be. Then, we click the Time Machine icon on the menu bar, and click Enter Time Machine. This is the Time Machine view, for Finder. On the right, we can toggle between different backup states of folders. Since we just set up Time Machine, we only have one backup time, the current folder, now,and the backup previously today. But notice that we have all the files that we deleted, in the previous backup. Time Machine also keeps different versions of the file. So, if you made a change to one of these files, say, added or deleted a paragraph, those changes would be reflected in each backup. To restore files from Time Machine, all you have to do is select the files you want to restore, and click Restore down here. And all those files that we deleted are back in the folder. Time Machine also works with entire folders. So, if were to accidentally delete our Work Documentsfolder, we can enter Time Machine, go back in time to a previous backup, select the folder, and click Restore. And the folder and all its contents are restored. As you can see, Time Machine is a very useful backup tool.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
