    thnx...patrick I did see some help but when they suggested going into 'terminal' I must say was little intimidated...so did nothing.
    so I will have to be very careful.... I think over time they will stop the pop ups..... I hope.

    I would only hope they wont upgrade automatically...... as happened to me on Windows when win10 came out...after so many prompts to update and I chose not to...
    wham....I had win10 and did not want it.

    Apple has never done that. You have to accept the license and authorize the installation. Just ignore the suggestions to upgrade. I got that on an iMac for a while, eventually it gave up and stopped nagging me.

    Lori:

    It's real easy to do:

    Open your Terminal app which you can find in Utilities.

    When the Terminal opens, copy below and paste it into the terminal and then press enter.


    sudo softwareupdate --ignore "macOS Catalina"

    After doing that, close the terminal.

    You can't mess it up because if you make a mistake, the terminal will ignore or reject what you entered.

    You left out that after entering that command, she will be prompted to enter her password, and that as she types it in, it will NOT appear. Just enter it, press Return and it will execute.

    Thanks Jake. It's been awhile since I ran that command. It definitely works to shut down the Catalina update nag.

    And if she doesn't want to do the other Terminal commands to get rid of the red upgrade tabs in Sofware Update, just remove it from the Dock so it isn't so "in one's face".

    so should I or should I not run super duper now that I've done Mojave upgrade...and choose verification? I would then have clone of Sierra and Mojave. I presume they cannot be done on same EXD even tho both are clones of two different OS.
    OR maybe I need not be concerned at this point.

    I installed FF and Waterfox browsers to try and managed to get bookmarks from Safari to them. I would like to know that if I use Safari and create new bookmarks, will they automatically change in FF and Waterfox? ill probably continue with Safari anyway as I am so familiar with it. just will not use GOOGLE search engine.

    I think you're well past that stage, or at least until the next time it possibly pokes its head up.

    I think it's just SuperDupers method of suggesting one do a verification of the file folder structure before a backup or clone. Disk Utility can do a similar verification and or repair (first aid fix) that is often recommended before doing a backup or clone.

    But then again, I don't use SuperDuper anymore.

    No, you will need to update the other browsers with your new bookmarks. Apple doesnít like apps to share data, especially their own apps.

    oh now it did. see error message.
    I think tried to login via Firefox and got on...but screen popped up about security so I unchecked that. maybe that is my issue.
    been playing with settings and think I may have checked something I should not have.
    what a mess.

    I just cannot be in a place where I cannot connect with Mac-forum!!
    so for now seem to be okay.

    my question is about formatting external drives. I have a small usb which I upload movies to and insert into my tv to watch. I deleted movies and wanted to add more. used disk utility to erase using xfat format. I have done this in past and all went well.
    it was rejected with a red exclamation mark and ejected drive.
    so I did a first aid and that went well...green checkmark
    re did the process and chose apfs and same result same rejection and eject of drive.

    how can I make this work again??

    now cannot even get this drive recognized to do anything. keeps getting ejected.
    guess ill have to scrap it...and give drive away...that is if anyone else can use it!

    but now concerned as I obviously so not understand the formatting of drives using Mojave!!!
