  • You will not be able to have the best RAW and DAM in one piece of software since the best RAW converter or one of the best RAW converters is DxO. Photolab. It does not have photo organizing setup ...
  • The storage of data has to be looked at and broken down according to several scenarios. In terms of permanent data storage, it seems important. One is massive amounts of data for the longest time ...
  • but will the data be there on the HD in 50 years ? Maybe your grandkids are looking through the attic for old photos or papers. Oh, look here. A Hard drive with every image of grandpa and ...
  • wklee • I still have not been convinced on SSD data retention in in an offline state. Data can still vanish when powered up again after an extended period offline, unlike HDD? You mentioned ...
  • Regarding longevity of data being retrievable on SSDs in an unpowered state, I remember clearly it is somewhere around 1-2 years and then, your data has a good chance of not being retrievable. ...
  • Regarding an earlier comment you made on your choice of backup; I agree that storage on blu ray HTL or 'M' disks are a very good choice. Cloud storage or on SSDs is very convenient but 'one of ...
  • I posted this just in context to what the thread was about. Thanks for the details on what you addressed above. All said and done, what would you recommend if anything regarding maintenance of ...
  • I just downloaded and ran all scripts (daily, weekly, monthly) with 'beta' version of Titanium Maintenance . Cleaned all caches.  No problems or hiccups in the process for high sierra.
  • From a DxO site, the recommendations  are for a minimum of 4 GB RAM. OP notebook specs are the minimum  4GB RAM so if it was batch processing, it could have been stretched to the limit. core ...
  • That is useful information. What the OP said is" DXO may damage computer, warning! ". Key word , 'Computer'. But, he meant to say, his computer. Not a work station or a pro model but a 'Dell notebook'.
  • An important point not just for this topic but generally any laptop that has not been into the shop for some time. Dust obstructing airflow can prevent the board and CPU from cooling. My MacBook ...
  • I agree - The only point is that there (perhaps) would be a market for another MBP model - in addition to current models - for a very slightly thicker and larger 17" model. Really I'm not ...
  • It is important to ask, how much thicker is 3 mm? Really almost nothing but it could bring a lot of improvement by way of cooling. It is .125 of an inch. Nothing really. And not much added weight ...
  • When all else fails, there is always a direct phone call to Apple. I have done that in the past. Did you try a Command-'N' restart? that is a network reboot.
  • https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314 This is the apple site  giving instructions on recovery mode. Basically, restart while pushing Command + 'R'  (Command + N is network boot) This allows a ...
  • +1 It was a surprise how quickly Apple came out with a software fix to the heat throttling issue that was as effective as a software fix could be. From the ititial reports, it sounded like a more ...
  • I agree with the above for very practical reasons. It is better to save a very few more dollars and then purchase a Mac that in the future  keeps up with the newer OS . Putting money down on an ...
  • When you decide on the specific iMac, check to see if it will be compatible with the next mac OS upgrade, Mohave. I just checked and if it is an early 2012, rather than a late 2012 iMac , it could ...
  • Coming from a pc environment, I would make some suggestions that may save time for many different issues regarding organization and basic navigation to files and docs. -open a finder window and ...
  • It seems in this case the bottleneck is basically a design issue of the size of the case needed to handle the cooling required to run the i9 processor. The designers at Apple have locked ...
