Question: Setting up extrnl hard drive to use Time Machine Software
I have a macbook air with Yosemite . I am setting up a 'Lacie" external hard drive to use for storing my back up files.
I want to be able to use the 'Time Machine" software from Apple to run my backup process.
At the beginning of the 'Setup" instructions the drive manufacturer instructs to download it's Intego Backup software and advises you that you'll be installing that software later in the setup process. I assume that they're referring to some proprietary software for backup .
If I want to use the Time Machine software should I
1. Just ignore the instruction , NOT download the manufacturer's software and complete the rest of the process?
2. Download the software but not install it
3. Is there way to download and install the software but use the time machine software instead?
MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.5)
