    "What I did was to mount the network drive in Finder and then go to SysPrefs/TM and point to the mounted drive. Done. TM detected that the drive was mounted remotely and did a backup creating the...

    That has got to be one of the most unintuitive process I've heard of recently.

    Hiding the uninstaller is the main reason I had to ask their Tech Support for uninstalling directions.

    For some...

    I'm really late to this thread, but thought I'd share what I learned from iDrive tech support in case someone reads this later while trying to uninstall iDrive.

    iDrive sent me these directions...
  5. Wondering If Any Have Had Success With Time Machine To A NAS Drive

    Hi Everybody!
    My spiffy, new TP-Link router has USB ports where one can connect a drive and mount it as Network Attached Storage. So far, I've been successful in manually mounting a Toshiba 5400 rpm...

    Thanks Jake!
    OnyX was a great idea.

    When it Verified the Disk on startup, OnyX reported a problem with the disk. I re-booted with CMD-R and used Disk Utility's First Aid function.

  7. Double Header: Finder Showing Wrong File Date Modified & Date Created - Spotlight's Gone Wacky

    Hi All!

    Recently, Finder has been showing the wrong "Date Created" and "Date Modified" for almost files and folders.

    They can be wrong by years. Sometimes the date precedes either the date I...

    Thanks Patrick for the note & link.

    The article reviews were quite interesting. In one review the person mentioned they will no longer back up system files. I didn't get that memo. Wonder how many...

    Update-

    A week or so ago, I filed out a survey for why I am leaving CrashPlan and got a reply saying that CrashPlan changed the rules & will allow sparseimage files to be backed up again. (Letter...

    Thanks Guys!

    Good Thoughts Patrick! Based on where I live, the offsite backup may someday be very important. (Such is life!)

    While backups are in the front of my mind, I think it is time to...

    Thanks for taking time to reply Chscag.

    For another downside of CrashPlan, I just saw on the credit card statement that my price-per-month doubled for CrashPlan. Some notice would have been...

    Hi All!
    I wanted to post this in case any of you use CrashPlan by Code 42 for back ups and didn't find out about some changes that may be critical to you.

    As of yesterday (May 19, 2019) CrashPlan...
  14. Mystery NAS Storage Location

    This is goofy & I sure can't figure it out.

    My router (TP-Link Archer C7) has two USB ports. I am using OS X 10.11.6.
    If I put a USB thumb drive in either of the router's ports, I can go to...

    Delay Of Game!

    The ISP could not provision the modem. It belongs to someone else.

    The "Refurbished" Arris SB6183 modem I bought on Amazon, sold by an "authorized Arris re-seller" & shipped by...

    I write so crummy sometimes! The ISP does offer more than the 30 Mbps. That 30 is the tier we subscribe to.

    If you are a new subscriber, they offer 100 Mbps and 250 Mbps tiers for less than we...

    Thanks Again For Good Advice Patrick!

    I checked the ISP's list of approved modems for the current 'speed' tier (30 Mbps) that we have and the highest we would ever expect to have. After reviewing...

    Thanks Patrick. I appreciate your taking time to reply with the suggestion.
    The first thing I'll do when I get the router up and running is try the positions. TP-Link is contradictory in various...

    Hello All!
    I've been learning quite a bit about routers and modems lately, thanks to the people here at Mac-Forums. Today's pesky question concerns moving the WiFi antennas away from the router. I...

    Thanks XJ-linux for the explanation.

    Based on your explanation, it sounds like an 8 x 4 will be fine for us at 30 Mbps and possibly 100 Mbps in the future.
    I'll be sure to see if it is on the...
  23. Thanks Chscag & Krs. I appreciate your...

    Thanks Chscag & Krs. I appreciate your information.

    It looks then, based on what you both mentioned, that 8 x 4 will be OK for us since the fastest we will ever subscribe to is 100 Mbps and 8 x 4...

    Hi All!
    We've decided to ditch the rental modem/router from the cable company (Wide Open West) and buy a separate modem and router. I've studied all I can find, but am still wondering if it is worth...
