  • Fuji IX500 is one of the best computer investments I have made in 17 years of active computer use. Flat bed scanners are fine for the occasional document, but having the IX500 on the desktop makes ...
  • System Preferences -->  App Store. (In the third row).
  • MRT (Malware Removal Tool) 1.24 was updated for El Capitan on 21 Oct 2017 Gatekeeper 132 was updated for El Capitan on 18 Oct 2017 XProtect was updated to 2095 on 29 Sept 2017 I am not personally ...
  • Wow...thanks for documenting that so clearly. (When things go bad for me I don't usually have such a clear record/or memory of what happened.) I am in a very similar position to you, so very ...
  • Yes I think so, but note that the OP's post and first few replies are nearly two years old and I don't know if it existed then. The recent posts are about doing something different.
  • What Apple suggested should also have worked but was somewhat overkill. You would have lost other data created since the loss, but it would have avoided needing to know where Outlook kept its mail.
  • Thanks for the feedback...nice when things work like they are supposed to!
  • How have you tried to restore with Time Machine so far? To restore you will have to know where Outlook stores the mail in macOS, (I assume it is a user profile, like in Windows and somewhere in the ...
  • If it is a recent phenomenon, what else has changed? A long time ago I had similar problems with a new card reader. Any workflow changes? formatting cards in the camera?
  • Yes I have used both CrashPlan and BackBlaze mobile apps on my iPhone, though now only using CrashPlan's. I use them for checking what is on my cloud backup, and can download something to my phone ...
  • As I said earlier, you can merge two managed Photos Libraries by making one the iCloud System Library, then switching to make the other the iCloud System Library. This Apple KB: Photos for Mac: Use ...
  • Thanks for helpful reply...I don't need it very much either, so will hold off buying until clear need. I am well backed up.
  • Andy, what is your opinion of PowerPhotos? I assume it can't do things like converting managed to referenced, or reconnecting? I have never used it and would feel a tad nervous that it might do ...
  • Any reason why you didn't import the two recent shoots into your Photos Library, if that is where you wanted them to be? Are you using Photos with a referenced library or managed? If you are using ...
  • Replied in An Update
    Fine for me too with FileVault on, and also the new beta realtime Malwarebytes 3.0 for Mac: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/204698-announcing-the-malwarebytes-30-for-mac-beta/
  • Not sure why you say that ?! It has been regularly updated, the last time a few weeks ago to 9.51. I don't often use these tools nowdays usually preferring to reinstall if there are problems, but ...
  • TechTool and Drive Genius both offer to install monitoring apps which run in the background and could certainly use resource. They are easily turned off so that TechTool and Drive Genius work just ...
  • You can just run the full installer on top of your existing install. You won't lose any data or apps or settings and it solves some problems sometimes.
  • Only managed photos can be sync'd to iCloud. A Photos library can be mixed managed and referenced, with only the managed ones being uploaded to iCloud. I tried this once but it was too easy to ...
  • Depending on your budget (expensive) and size requirement (2TB max) the Samsung T3 is a very neat fast portable drive, much smaller than a standard 2.5 drive. Generally very well reviewed. http://w ...
