Hello, friends,


When I'm about to install something on my Mac, I'd like to create a backup with Time Machine, so I could simply restore it in case something goes wrong.


I know Time Machine saves only hourly/daily/monthly backups, but can I do a "backup now", so this moment with show when I Enter Time Machine?



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Time Machine
