Apple Works – converting files

Apple Works, and previously Claris Works files cannot be opened in any current version of  iWorks (Pages, Numbers, Keynote)

Fortunately there is a way to convert those old files to a format which can at least be opened.

 

Libre Office is available as a  free download and will open many file types including Claris/Apple works files

Once opened they can then be saved out in another format which can be read by other programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel etc.

 

Libre Office Download (Free)

Backup software – Mac OS X

Backing up should be the most important thing you do.
Computers can be replaced but not your valuable data. 
When (not if) disaster strikes, having a backup can help get you back up and running quickly as well as keeping your data safe, by having it backed up to another location.

Apple Time Machine, which is a built-in feature of OS X is much better than having no backup at all, but might not suit all scenarios.

Below is a list of other backup software for Mac OS X
We do not make any recommendation or endorsement of any particular product, and this list will be by no means comprehensive, but hopefully one of these will help take the toil out of otherwise having to do manual backups.
