I know this is more of a macbook general question, but I was particular curious about how other programmers tackle this. There’s also a 100k articles on it, all with affiliate links to XYZ thing, so it’d be great to get recommendations from real people. I got a new macbook and plan to give the older one to my sister.
I’d love to “just back the whole thing up and then factory reset”. I really don’t feel like doing a major house cleaning of the machine to decide what I want to keep or throw out.
When you guys do this, or backup in general, have you tried iCloud or Time machines? Do you use google drive? Is there something more specific for my use case than that?
