    Yeah, I'm sorry Poppi, but Airdrop is not available for you since your Mac is too old to support it. I use Airdrop quite often since we receive many charts via iMessage and sending them to my iMac...

    Hey Sly:

    I seem to remember that member Poppi is using an older Mac that may not be compatible with Airdrop.

    Use Air Drop instead. Select the video on your iPhone and make sure that your iPhone and Mac are on the same network. One of the choices you'll get when selecting the video is to use Air Drop. When...

    It's always best to keep your backups separate from any other data. I currently have 5 external hard drives on my desk next to my iMac. Nowadays, external drives are inexpensive so there is no need...

    I take it you mean that in Safari Preferences, General, Remove History Items, you selected two days? I have mine set to remove history items after one day. For some reason if Safari History items...

    Welcome to our forums.

    It could be a bad or weak power supply; as the symptoms you described point to that. However, it could very well be anything that is causing the machine to turn off and not...

    Oh, I'm sure Audacity is capable; it's me that's not capable of using it. :)

    First, I would be leery about anything purchased from eBay even when the seller has good rep and the item looks like a good bargain. Just my opinion, so use your best judgement.

    As for the 11'...

    Hey Sly:

    The last time I used Audacity, I royally screwed up the audio file so bad that it was not useable. You're right, it has the worst interface but its price point is great. :goofy

    The built in DVD player that's available in Mojave and Catalina will only play commercial DVDs recorded and marked as Region 1. Unless his commercial DVDs were purchased outside of the US or Canada,...

    Thanks for testing. I had thought that Apple upped the security on the latest versions of Safari. I believe it may even be more enhanced with Catalina. I can't test it myself because for now I can...

    What happens when you perform the same test with the latest version of Safari and from Mojave or Catalina?

    Okay, thanks for the info. Can you try connecting your iMac to your router using ethernet rather than WiFi? We need to try to understand if it's a network connection problem or maybe related to a...

    What do you intend to use the flash drive for? Reliability is very important if you're going to use the drive for data or photos that you can't afford to lose. My experience with cheaper flash...

    No, that has not changed. You are correct in that it will take you to recovery. I just wanted to clarify what you meant by "runnable drive". We probably should point out that as a last resort, a...

    Not sure what you mean here Jake, but a Time Machine backup can be booted from. Has been that way now for quite some time. I tested that some time ago after I learned that it could be done.
