  • You're right the OP didn't mention 'Photos' app. They thought they were storing their photo originals (not back ups, the OP doesn't mention back ups) on the external WD. But it sounds like they were ...
  • Absolutely, which is why I didn't mention it! ;-) As you say, double clicking the Photos Library in ~/Pictures will launch the default Photos Library in Photos app and hopefully will reveal all ...
  • It is very difficult to advise remotely without seeing your computer or knowing your level of computer knowledge, but from what you say I think you have been importing your photos into your Photos ...
  • Interesting. "A few years ago" Windows hardware was generally unappealing compared to the Mac equivalents. It feels to me that in the last year or so there are a lot of Windows laptops which have ...
  • Paragon offer HFS+ for Windows and APFS for Windows . APFS for Windows is out of beta and claims to support read and write, but it is a bit buggy eg, an APFS drive cannot be written to by Lightroom ...
  • Internal SSDs are formatted during there install process as APFS, but any SSD can be formatted HFS+ in Disk Utility, and used for TM. My HFS+ TM volume is on a 2TB SSD which also has an APFS ...

    The only other option I can suggest is an alternative program that does the same job. I have had programs that I really like which have stopped working, but I have usually managed to find an ...
  • I am "cautioning" because of my recent actual failures, which I have reported to Apple. The OP may well not experience the same. I agree there is lots of misinformation based on things that ...
  • I agree lots of people report no problems with TM restores and overall the percentage may indeed be very high. I am just one data point. Two people in this thread have cautioned about about using ...
  • I didn't express it well (although I did say ..."but not me", referring to others flawless TM experience). I just tried to edit my post to make clearer that I have frequently tried using TM backups ...
  • This has also been my experience. I have had near 100% success using a CCC clone as a migration source than a TM backup. I know others say they have had flawless experience with TM restores both ...
  • I understand why so many people hate having four thunderbolt ports, but it does have the advantage of flexibility . Any of the four ports can be used for any of USB, Ethernet, Display, charging etc. ...
  • Not for a few years now...he’ll need to find a second hand one for this 😏 !
  • try the free Go64 from StClairsoft https://www.stclairsoft.com/Go64/
  • If you are starting from scratch with the Cloudy Lightroom it would tempting to go with the Apple Store version. I think it will probably have a simpler install and update process (though not 100% ...
  • I wouldn't have expressed it quite like this. The BIG thing that Cloudy Lightroom does that Classic doesn't is automatically sync between all your devices. My wife and I have Lightroom Cloudy ...
  • Andy helped me enormously last year getting set up with Classic and Cloudy, but I still managed to fall into one of the gotchas when I was using both programmes in the early days. IMHO the issue is ...
  • I agree, though I sometimes use "Cloudy" and "Classic" which is totally unofficial but totally unambiguous.
  • Lightroom (we aren't supposed to call it "Lightroom CC"  anymore, just plain "Lightroom") handles HEIC fine but not Live Photos. I can't test Classic at the moment but suspect the same is true.
