  • I guess it will. I've just opened TM preferences and the master switch is set to "Off", and the menubar icon is greyed. However clicking the icon tells me when the last backup was done according ...
  • You could try TimeMachineEditor: https://tclementdev.com/timemachineeditor/ which lets you schedule when TM runs. I've set mine to every 4 hours, which reduces the number of "TM is deleting your ...
  • Agreed. ALWAYS encrypt Time Machine, and take regular clones of your Mac. If you get a ransomware attack, shut down your Mac then reboot from a clone and copy the clone back to the Mac using ...
  • This, from Google: " The album "Imports" is showing all photos you add to the Photos Library on the iPhone, sorted by the date of import ". This suggests to me that the Imports folder is simply an ...
  • Suspect your cache and / or log files. You can get a free trial of WhatSize which will arrange your files biggest to smallest so you can easily see.
  • Check the Containers folder in Caches. Do you have Connection Logging in Mail (the default is On)? If so and the Containers cache database for Mail is really huge (many GB) then just delete it and ...
  • I'm getting it fine. Migration of 3rd party software may well bring across some old files, but if the software is currently working without problem, then most of what's brought across will be ...
  • You might be a little confused? Your new machine WILL be a clean install, all new computers are by definition. If you leave it "as is" then none of your data or software will be there, so you HAVE ...
  • I do understand where you're coming from. I resisted cloning for years in favour of TM in the false belief that it was way more complicated. However, when I took the plunge I realised how silly ...
  • Oh right. As I'm 'always online' that's not an issue for me. TBH I'd not noticed that feature on my iPad!
  • Can you enlarge? Netflix and Prime are already available on Mac.
  • You've just proved to everybody that all you want is a (futile) argument. I'm going to leave you to argue with yourself as I've not got the energy to engage on your level. Goodbye.
  • Your remark was in reply to bmoag who is clearly knowledgeable about these matters. The fact that you contradicted his point about clones seems to suggest you just wanted an argument. I've already ...
  • That is possibly the most presumptuous remark I've seen on these forums. What you say might very well be true ... to the average Mac user outside these forums. However, the very fact of this Mac ...
  • I am a normal user.
  • Not if you schedule a regular clone (daily, weekly, or whatever..) - then the initial work is all you have to 'deal with'.
  • This may sound like overkill, but from your experiences perhaps not. I have the following: (1) one external HDD that has Time Machine backup (2) one external ...
  • Cool. But the M1X is not the "second generation" (as the article says); the second will be the M2, due any time soon, e.g. November? The M1X is the Pro version of the M1; in other words, the basic ...
  • Hi. Wait just a short while (days? a few weeks?) for the M1X Macbooks. Go for 16GB RAM (arguably overkill right now but you'll be thankful in a few years especially when you discover you can't add ...
  • The answer to your particular problem is fairly straightforward - if you both register with Google and then use Google Docs , you can both collaborate on the same document(s); it/they will live ...
