    If so, I'd like to know; do securely deleted files still show up in Time Machine?

    There are some things I never want to see again!

    Nobody will be able to answer that as nobody has used it. It won't be released until October 2007 when Leopard comes out.

    In the rare event that anyone here has, they wouldn't be able to discuss it anyway, due to the strict nondisclosure agreements that go along with the privilege of testing pre-release software.

    Aye, I know the vast majority of members here won't have touched Leopard... but I know quite a lot of people have (devs, leaked copies etc.) so figured I'd put a question out just incase some of those people are here.

    As for the NCA, I doubt Apple would have it's legal team out in force for answering a question like that.

    Well, in all seriousness, Apple does pay attention to things posted on forums. They can and have taken action against information being leaked out/posted publicly on internet sites and other forums prior to an official release. If such information was posted here, the forums could possibly face a threat of legal action taken against them.

    For that reason, the only information regarding Leopard that is allowed here is information that Apple themselves has already released publicly.

    ok.

    being a windows user for the last 14 years i have no idea about mac OS's.

    i turned to OS X about 5 months ago, so my question is how much will leopard cost once it is out in the shops?

    hopefully not as much as vista....

    hi there,

    when leopard comes out, there is only going to be one version (unlike vistas 6 different versions) this will coat around $129 or £80-90. but there will also be a student discount available. depending if you are a student of course. just cant wait till it comes out.

    This question has been answered before in other threads... it's not exactly polite nor sensical to ask an unrelated question like that in somebody else's thread.

    Specs:
    eMac, 1 Ghz G4, 1 GB RAM, running 10.4.10, saving for MBPro
    The first thing I wondered was: how big of a HD do I need? I have an external HD to store all my Garageband car-wrecks, but the idea of saving everything for I don't even know how far back must take a dent out of storage. Considering how much stuff I download or create and then delete, I could see my 80 GB HD and 250 GB external being dwarfed eventually.

    As to the question in the OP, that's an interesting thought. I would imagine there is some way to secure what you need secure, but until October I can't say for sure.

    4 is 3 too many though for me.

    To the OP, I am sure you can configure Time Machine. We will soon know. It just makes sense you can change some settings.

    Aye, I'm *sure* Apple will have thought about it and implemented it correctly (since securely deleted files are meant to NOT be recoverable, I'm *sure* it wont show them)... but then I thought I better see if anyone knows differently

    PS. Come to think about it, I think I remember Steve saying that (like Spotlight) you can tell to ignore certain files/locations?
