  • 120GB is very small for an internal drive. As others have said, you need to keep at least 10% of the drive free for swap space, etc. You 'best' option might be to replace your internal SSD with a ...
  • I had wondered about that.  I normally have the auto-updates turned off - I just get a warning that an update is available.  But, it is possible that something was left turned on at a 'deeper' ...
  • Well, I spent over an hour on the phone with Apple support, including being escalated up to a higher support level.  They were actually very helpful and knowledgeable.  The problem had stumped ...
  • Created discussion thread Boot issues with iMac 2017
    I have a 27" iMac 2017 with 1TB SSD.  The OS is High Sierra (10.13.6). Today, I did a re-boot which failed, giving me a log screen pop up saying that 'tThe macOS installation couldn't be completed ...
  • I'm looking at using Onedrive (or iCloud) for work files so that I can access an up-to-date version of my files from my work, home and laptop computers.  Could you do something similar with Classic? ...
  • Why do you want to ditch Classic? I don't do any editing in the cloud. If I travel and want to do some editing during the trip, I take a laptop and back-up disc drive. Then, I can edit on my ...
  • I'm looking into a similar need - to keep files synced among three computers (2 iMacs and 1 MacBookPro).  My needs are for more than the default iCloud storage (I need about 250GB of storage).  ...
  • I was just pointing out that, if you wanted to use 3.5" drives, then you would need the other unit. I agree that SSDs are faster and would provide a better unit.  But, they also cost a lot more: ...
  • Zees' suggestion could work after you have imported everything. Use the filter to identify the 'jpgs' and then you can delete them from the catalog.  Might give a bit more flexibility (to retain ...
  • That doesn't work for me (using Classic).  Clicking the 'file type' in library only affects what I see in the grid view in library.  For example, if I click 'NEF' and then go to import, I still ...
  • This unit only has space for 2.5" discs which can be limiting.  Works well with SSD drives but not with standard HDDs.  For standard 3.5" drives, you would need the other unit you referenced in ...
  • The new Lightroom CC is tied to Adobe's cloud services.  With Lightroom Classic, you can put your images anywhere you want (most people seem to place them on external USB -3connected drives). You ...
  • My concern is more about focal length than lighting.  If this is going to be a large event, will the photographer be able to get close enough to the 'action' to get good pictures with just an ...
  • If this is a special event, might the Nuggets be interested in acknowledging your group?  If so, they might be open to a special arrangement with regards to photography, particularly if the focus ...
  • What is the purpose of the long postings in Vietnamese? If you are trying to show the type of brochure, there is probably a better way. All these post show is a large amount of test and a few ...
  • To simplify the handling of 1,000's of images. There is cost involved with transferring images to a new computer, possibly having to re-do editing, personal time to convert things and ensure they ...
  • A non-technical suggestion.  Does your 'ex' want this specific computer?  Or, could you buy a new replacement computer of similar capacity to give to the 'ex'?  It would cost some money but you ...
  • If you are just using one computer, an NAS would be more complex, and likely slower, then directly connecting drives to your computer.  I am sure that you have seen in the other threads that a ...
  • Are you the main photographer for the wedding?  Or you are a guest taking your personal pictures?  I don't shoot weddings but most of what I have seen would suggest that 35mm would be much too ...
  • A related question (hence the re-start of this thread). This unit only offers 1 USB-C connector. If you want a dock/hub that provides additional USB-C connectors, is there anything out there? I've ...
