    Another postscript for the archives of what-can-go-wrong.

    Once I determined that decrypting my external HD would not restore its Time Machine capacity, I re-encrypted the drive. It took three...

    Browsed through the web and found this suggestion:
    go to the Terminal App in Utilities and type: diskutil cs list
    Sure enough, it revealed the decryption was 41% complete.

    That's good news! Is there any way to monitor the decrypting progress?
    Also, is there a way to encrypt and still use Time Machine?

    Well, I may have lost it all, because the laptop went into sleep mode while the HD was decrypting! Will soon see if this occurred.

    An update on this post: I connected the external drive and "right-clicked" the drive icon, then clicked "decrypt drive". Now the window says "Decrypting Drive" and is greyed-out. Does this indicate...

    Thanks for all the replies!

    As I recall, I encrypted the HD with Disk Utility, and will see if un-encrypting the HD restores Time Machine.
  10. No Time Machine with Encrypted HD

    2017 MacBook Pro, OS 10.13.6

    Last year I encrypted my Time Machine external HD because it was going to be mailed and put in storage. When I got it back, I found Time Machine did not work (entering...

    Thank you for the suggestions! I have used Pages to combine images with word captions, but never imagined it could be used to add color. I will explore the possibilities.

    OK, that's reassuring. I read a post on an Apple thread which indicated any OS after High Sierra would not support 32-bit:

  16. Web solutions

    I should have mentioned that I prefer a one-time purchase price... but most web solutions appear to be subscriptions.
  17. No support for 32 bit applications

    2017 MacBook Pro, running High Sierra.
    I have been postponing an update to Mojave because it will not support my 32 bit applications like iWeb, which has been quite adequate for my modest website. ...

    I went to "discussions.apple" "techmeback" and "theinstructional". These sites present the same procedure (re-format the USB, Control-click to access the encryption option).
