  • El Capitan runs on anything that can run Mountain Lion or later, which does include a couple of 2007 models (MacBook Pro & iMac).
  • There is no problem with making the jump, however, you will likely need to update the apps you're using. Which Mac do you have? If it's not listed here , then it can't run El Capitan.
  • It's not a WD feature. It's a normal integrity check after a non-clean unmount, such as after a sudden power failure. For a 6 TB drive with presumably a lot of files, it could take a while. I'd ...
  • DiskWarrior should be able to repair it.
  • Yes they do. Choose 'No application' to be launched. Problem solved.
  • You're reformatting twice?? There is no advantage to reformatting each time you copy images. Instead, delete all images, either on the computer or in the camera, and the auto-launch issue is ...
  • If you reformat the card, it's seen as a new card. Delete all photos instead.
  • Nonsense. Not only does OS X have a Unix heritage, but it's officially certified UNIX.
  • Memory should always be full. Free memory is wasted. The indicator to look at is memory pressure. If it's high, then the system would benefit from more memory to reduce the pressure. If it's low, ...

  • Nope. With Snow Leopard, a file could only have one label, so there was no problem with it being the entire line. With Mavericks, labels are now called tags and there can be more than one tag for ...
  • The 1.5 gig and 3 gig models skew the numbers. All drives fail. The question is when. With a good backup strategy, nothing is lost.

  • I figured it was a 1st gen. There are instructions online on how to rebuild it, either with a fan to keep things cool or replacing the internal power supply with one that uses an external power ...
  • That sounds like the power supply failed. Which revision Time Capsule? The first generation had a problem with power supply failures and Apple replaced them, but that was a long time ago. Open it ...
  • He is an idiot. The hard drive is powered down when the computer is sleeping, just as it is when it's off. No and I doubt anything else he says is valid either.
  • Use WiFi, but if you must have wired Ethernet, you'll need a Thunderbolt-Ethernet adapter. A USB 3 hub. If the hard drives are bus-powered, then be sure the hub is self-powered, which will likely ...
  • One of the big advantages of subscription based software is that new features are released as soon as they're finished rather than needing to wait for a new product cycle, which with Lightroom is ...
  • You understand wrong. There is nothing cut down about it.
  • It doesn't just use dates. You can use Spotlight to search on a wide variety of things, including camera metadata. Better yet, use an asset manager such as Lightroom, which is designed for that ...
