    Lithium batteries start to degrade about two years after manufacture, regardless of use (or non-use). So your 1+year old battery is getting close to that two year point. The degradation is slow, at...

    From the ShirtPocket article Randy linked:

    Translation: We found asr buggy so we quit working with it. Even when it did work.

    Instead of working with Apple to make it better, to make it work...

    The reboot probably fixed the connectivity link for you. Next time, just reboot.

    Give DaisyDisk a try. Nice graphical display to help you find big hitters.

    If you can do other things in the Internet, it most likely is not on your end.
    Yes, call Earthlink.
    No, DU probably won't make any difference. You are not having a disk problem.

    Also, you can try to unmount the WD drive and remount it. You didn't say, but it looks like a networked drive. A reboot should reattach the network drive as well if there haven't been any changes to...

    Yep, that is how it is designed. If you log out, there is no further link between the account and the watch, so you have to log in again. Once logged in, the link with watch/phone/mac is established...

    Jonathan, been there, done that! Apple has actually added a visual prompt on the Watch to point to where to press, so I guess they got a lot of calls about this one.

    Time Machine runs with very low priority so that the impact is minimal. If you use the machine while it is backing up, that low priority means that it will try to "sneak in" a quick file transfer...

    I think it is not the digital crown, but the side button that needs to be clicked to authorize things. I just tested on my watch and it worked that way.

    Apple did issue guidance (that CCC and Shirtpocket did not follow) about the pending change. At the Bombich blog, he wrote this:

    Then later he says this:
    (Emphasis his)

    But Apple DID give a...

    @Randy, You've been around Apple for a lot longer than I have, so I am hesitant to respond, but:

    1. I don't remember glass until more recently. However, from the articles, I took it that films...

    Randy, not exactly an apples to apples comparison there. The ten-year-old articles refer to plastic screen protectors that Apple got rid of. Hard to apply, lots of bubbles, lots of returns on them...

    @krs, don't be paranoid about it. All the article really says is that Apple is making it harder to get rid of the red flag for an update being there, not that there is any forced update. Windows does...

    Another great description for how TM works comes from James Pond (Pondini) a true wizard who passed away all too soon: How Time Machine Works its Magic

    That is NOT how it works. What you see in any given date folder is a collection of what are mostly links to the last time the file/folder changed. If you copy that link somewhere else and delete the...

    If you create a brand new CCC backup on a new drive, it won't boot, according to CCC. However, continuing to use a previous CCC backup will boot. And even if you do create a new CCC clone, it can be...

    I didn't ask, Lisa did, but I don't see anything in the recently installed list that looks like a candidate for being the problem.

    Where did the list in post #22 come from? Are those the windows...

    It is in a section toward the bottom of the saved report. It's a section titled "Software Installs (past 30 days)"

    I installed it, but I don't see the Battery Health function. I went to Sys Prefs/Power Saver, no new button at the bottom as I have seen posted elsewhere. Is there a place to turn it on (the button,...

    If you run Etrecheck, one of the sections shows recently installed applications.

    Can I ask how you "shut down" the apps that you ended up Force Quitting? If you clicked the "X," that is not quitting, just pushing the app into the background, still running. You have to actually...

    The two images are too fuzzy to read. From the Etrecheck report, you don't need to run Clean My Mac as a resident process, just run it as you think you need it. That should improve performance...

    Couple of thoughts. Catalina has no iTunes, so that step is both not needed and probably impossible to do. You did not say what OS you are currently running, nor what kind of hard drive you have, nor...
