  • I thought Zoombrowser (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Mac) were the same thing, or nearly. This link: http://www.canon.co.uk/for_home/product_finder/cameras/digital_slr/technologies_features/so ...
  • Good to hear the info is still useful for years later!
  • My experience of AV is that the performance penalty been the slowing up of data transfer rather than CPU % usage.
  • Great post. My feelings and experience exactly. The only thing I might add is that I do keep a copy of ClamXav installed on a separate drive, but do not use its sentry (live monitoring). I just do ...
  • Yes I know, pity.....also if you backup an external it has to be reconnected every 30 days or BB will assume it is no longer required. They send you warning emails. Having now finally uploaded my ...
  • The latest version of Chronosync integrates with Amazon Cloud to make a cloud backup solution equivalent to CrashPlan and Backblaze. https://www.econtechnologies.com/chronosync/guide-setting-up-ama ...
  • Replied in iMac is slow
    Caches can also cleared out by a Safe Boot.....restart holding shift key and be patient. This also runs first aid. After safe boot, just restart and and it will boot normally. Have a look in ...
  • Just done some testing to look at this, and realise what I said above is not quite what happens. With the BackBlaze default setting of "automatic throttle", BackBlaze will still use the whole ...
  • My normal usage is browsing, emailing, occasional app updates, iCloud and Dropbox syncing new documents. I didn't observe whether BackBlaze gave priority to these tasks when necessary. If so this ...
  • Clearly something is wrong with what I said. The 100GB per day part is correct. The simple calculation is that I specified 2TB (as shown by Finder) of files on my computer and it took 20 days. ...
  • I am running a year long trial of BackBlaze and CrashPlan. BackBlaze does about 100 Gb per day with my 12Mbps upload speed. It is only using a fraction of this and has negligible effect on use of ...
  • Agreed, but I wouldn't look to RAID for home user backup. Most times I have used backups it has been user error and it would be propagated immediately to the backup. RAID backups are good for ...
  • I am not knowledgable enough about exactly how Lightroom uses processors, cores threads to answer your question directly, but I would be staggered if a software solution is going to make a dual ...
  • Yes I should have said that the option to store masters outside the Photos Library enables you to use your own folder structure. If your masters are stored by Photos in the package folder you have ...
  • TB and USB 3 would be about the same if the drive is a spinning HDD, as the drive would be bottleneck not the connection. If the drive is SSD then TB might be faster if the SSD is sufficiently ...
  • By default Apple's Photos app imports all masters into the Photos library where DPP would not see them. You can change this setting so that the masters remain where you put them and DPP will see ...
  • You could also try downloading the full (4+ gb) installer from MAS
  • Actually I think I am wrong about this. You can recover deleted files for 30 days from iCloud, but not not previous versions. You can recover previous versions of your iCloud Calendars and ...
  • So are they collecting it or are you taking it in?
  • Absolutely. You have to be careful not to have both LR libraries open at same time and to let the sync upload from from one computer and download to the other before opening on the second. But as ...
