    One more thing, Patrick, about maybe defaults changing. In Post #13 I put two images from a virgin installation of Catalina. One was of the Finder view of MacintoshHD as it exists on that desktop. In...
  2. Patrick, that article was about ~/Library and...

    Patrick, that article was about ~/Library and incorrectly made the claim that the chflags Terminal command no longer worked. I just used it in Mojave to get the screenshots I posted, so it definitely...

    Here is that same home directory after Command-shift-.

    30459

    As you can see, what is hidden are not really "user data" type files.

    Patrick, here is, as an example, my Home folder directory:
    30458
    I did make Library visible but the rest are visible as default. Command-Shift-"." unhides system files like .Trash, etc, but...
  5. Nope. Those have been visible, and still are,...

    Nope. Those have been visible, and still are, without any strange keys. Where are you getting this information? I've never heard of it before. The only normally invisible folder was Library, that was...

    Several people have already posted here that if trashed and deleted, it reappears.
  7. For this: what shows in Users is the name of all...

    For this: what shows in Users is the name of all users, and under the username, all of the folders (less Library), but the individual user can only see the details of their own folder and Shared, at...
  8. I will slightly disagree with that statement....

    I will slightly disagree with that statement. Apple hid the ~/Library, not "most of a user's folder and data." In fact, I could say that NONE of my data is hidden, just some semi-system files that...
  9. I don't know, Patrick, is it a bug or not? As you...

    I don't know, Patrick, is it a bug or not? As you can see from my images, I booted from a USB device named "Catalina" and the merged system and data volumes are called Macintosh HD. To me that's...

    I booted into Catalina on a USB thumb drive and here are the results:
    30455
    and
    30457

    The first is a shot of icons on my desktop. The one labelled "Catalina" is the usb stick from which I...

    Yep, tested it and no reboot or restart required. Works immediately.
  12. It was new to Mojave. It's the most recently used...

    It was new to Mojave. It's the most recently used Applications. You can control it in System Preferences/Dock and uncheck the "Show recent applications in Dock" option. May require a reboot or a...

    It will probably reappear on the next update. I suspect it will continue to appear until all of the "offending" files are found and deleted, which may be never if your third party apps are creating...

    Remember to use AppCleaner to uninstall unless the app comes with an uninstaller.
  15. Have you rebooted with the CCC drive disconnected?

    Have you rebooted with the CCC drive disconnected?
  16. As I said, the OS combines MacintoshHD and...

    As I said, the OS combines MacintoshHD and MacintoshHD Data into one presentation. DU can show both, as they are separate Volumes in the Container. I guess with the CCC drive attached the OS is also...
  17. I did not expect that many, to be honest, so I...

    I did not expect that many, to be honest, so I would say NO to that question until more research can be done. I used EasyFind on my Mojave system and it found 74 matches and I've NEVER had any Leap...

    What? Heresy! Of course you have to sit and watch the progress bar or it won't move. Everybody knows that, Rod!

    @pine man, Catalina actually creates two volumes on the boot drive now. One for system files that is very secure and one for user data to which users have access. In displaying the boot drive to the...

    Rod, that is definitely not a bug at all. It is, as you suspected, a part of the installation process. In it are files that the installer does not know what to do about. Rather than deleting them, it...

    Get either Find Any File or EasyFind and do a search for "Leap" in any filename. Let it search the entire drive. Eventually it will come back with what it finds for you. I suspect that at one point...

    OK, there is a long shot for you to do a restore from before the mail disappeared. However, you won't be able to see what you are actually restoring, in terms of mail and mailboxes, because the...

    I like the two drive design as well, but I find it curious that Apple chose to put them together again in Finder in Catalina. At least that's what I have heard, as I cannot get a good install on a...

    I would think that if one were to download the installer today, it would have the supplemental update included in the download. Not as a separate file, but with the changes included. That's the way...

    Just out of curiosity (I didn't participate in the beta) did the beta create the two volumes like the release does? One with the system, the other with the user data? From what I've read, the...
