  1. Go to System Preferences and enable Time Machine. It's as simple as that.

    Thanks. In other words I will still have all my data in my HD after I enable Time Machine.

    Once you enable Time Machine (and tell it to use your external drive) it will copy your files, and any changes, to the TM disk at regular intervals. The files on your hard disk won't be chamged.
