Before upgrading to macOS High Sierra
- Update your Intego software. Updating is easy and free using NetUpdate. You can launch NetUpdate either from the Intego menu in your menu bar or from the System Preferences application. There you'll find the necessary updates for all your Intego software. Need help updating your software? Learn how to update here.
- Back up your Mac. Just as important as updating your Intego software, you should back up your Mac before upgrading to macOS High Sierra. Make a full close of your startup disk and back up any other volumes you have using Intego Personal Backup (included with Mac Premium Bundle), which will ensure your data is safe in case anything goes wrong.

We cannot stress enough the importance of backing up your Mac before upgrading to macOS High Sierra. If you do have a problem, with Intego Personal Backup you'll be able to restore your clone immediately and start again. It's just another way Intego protects your Mac and your data from potential disaster.
Intego's updated Mac antivirus and security software are available for download through NetUpdate, or through the Intego Downloads page on our website.
