Excellent points, Rod, as always.

I took this into account in my reply as the OP said:

Hi Mencelus

There's a lot of incompatibilities here which need sorting out.

Firstly, I would never recommend sharing a TM backup on an EHD with anything else. But if you did, then in your...

Welcome to the forums

Things do not look good. As your Mac "died" 4 years ago, but was then resurrected as it were, perhaps that experience might have suggested some form of formal backup, Time...

Hi all,

Whilst I have no problem with the prospect of moving from iPhoto to Photos, this is not the case with Aperture.

I'd be really interested to know if this works. There is no doubt that a user upgrading to Yosemite, still retains iPhoto and it has been established that if their iPhoto app is not...

I cannot tell you how refreshing and relieving it is to have a person of such experience as you, asking what, at first sight, seems such a basic question. But a question which many...
