Hope that you will enjoy. Dave
    Thank you Dave! How wonderful to be retired and enjoying life with your wife and Macs....lol You deserve it after putting in your work years....

    I haven't made the mobile phone switch yet but will be soon. I know I'll have questions arise and know where to ask them now. Again thanks...xx

    TM is excellent for restoring purposes, both for individual files and entire systems but a clone offers instant access to individual files and a bootable backup which TM is not. A combination of the two offers greater security and flexibility and is always the first thing I recommend to a new user.
    Look forward to hearing from you in the future, no question is too silly or too difficult and I'm sure I speak for all members when I say that we take great pleasure solving Mac related problems and discussing all things Mac. Check out our weekly live online chat.
    Thank you so much for the welcome Rod and the reminder to create a bootable backup. I read about Carbon Copy Cloner and Super Duper before I made my purchase. I'll be looking into it after posting here. x

    Again thx for great advice and the warm welcome...xx

    Welcome lisaz10. Hope you find your time here helpful. I see you have already been greeted by some of our more active/helpful members.

    BTW this Terminal thing of which you speak gives me the hives. Think I'll stay away from that bit.

    Thank you I'll be appearing all week at the Mac-forums comedy club.

    Wonder if being the resident comic would pay better than Moderator? I bet not.

    Nope. Told them I'd work cheap. Unfortunately for me somebody thought cheap and free were synonymous.
