Apple has unveiled the Time Capsule, a backup tool that automatically and wirelessly backs up everything on one or more Macs running Leopard Mac OS X operating system. Welcome to a new era of automated wireless back up for your computer data …
Powered by the Time Machine automatic backup software, Time Capsule combines an 802.11n base station with a server grade hard disk in one small package that easily sets up automatic wireless backup for every Mac computer in your house to a single Time Capsule with just a few clicks.
The press release says that in the event a file is lost, users can wirelessly search back through time to find deleted files, applications, photos and other digital media and then instantly restore the file, and it can also easily restore an entire system from the Time Machine backup on Time Capsule! Now that is a powerful wireless backup tool.
Time Capsule offers the benefits of a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station, and comes in two models: a 500 gigabyte model for just $299 and a 1 terabyte hard drrive model for just $499. It will be available in February through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers.
