  • Thanks for this info. I was aware that a "reset" was a last resort if something isn't working, but not that it was just a "forced restart".  I had tried restart twice, which did nothing.  Finally ...

  • First... many people love iCloud. I don't. So I cannot advise you on that. I also have never used any off-site storage, so I'm no help there. If it is of any interest, here's what I do instead.  I ...
