    Could you please elaborate on the part where you mentioned "cluttered desktop"? I stared working with Macs in '89, ever since it is my preferred software platform. Though I fully agree with those ...
  • that should be easy, - make sure the taskbar isn't locked - click on the top line/border of the taskbar and drag it all the way down, this way you can narrow it down to one thin line. The same way ...
  • Replied in spot on.
    you saved me type a similar analogy. What's so difficult in understanding hardware based limitations?
  • What has your monitor got to do with your question?
  • I've been building my Hackintoshes for the past decade or so. Last november I build me a new machine intending to install Mojave on it. Yes I did my research and only used MacOS friendly parts: ...
  • I do recall tweaking various cache and memory parameters on Solaris (the actuals storage server). The details have been lost on me since it's been 3 years since I worked with such systems.  We did ...
  • What would you like to know? I Built and used to manage a few Dell hardware based Nexenta systems (220TB and 150TB). These were used for PDF and ZIP file storage (CIFS) , ESX storage (NFS) and ...

  • In all honesty, how many times has the OP seen / have a corrupted file, that had to be repaired (by this cumbersome solution) ? Again, restoring a file form a backup would be so much easier.
  • Replied in Why ?

  • You could use cloud based storage for transferring your files (only as fast as your internet connection), or the faster alternative is to use USB based storage, be it a disk or flash drive. Regardi ...
  • It only protects against hardware failure of a disk.
  • Ehhh how else dow you want to backup your data? Guess you're not asking your garage to to replace a part/maintain your car while you're on your way to some distant destination?
  • No worries, it will work just fine, since you can add other locations too, like D:\photos, or E:\my_naughty_movies, or any other location. https://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-work-file-history-wind ...
  • I've been using a whole array of Wacoms on Mac since the late 90s, never had a problem with drivers. Now that I've switched to Windows (since a week) I'm curious.
