    Surprised by that, Lisa. Wonder what setting it was that mucked up the microphone? No way to know, but it is curious.

    Is suspect a hardware failure of the mic, nothing in the OS. If it were the OS, the screams from users would be deafening.

    Bob, I thought there was a padlock, but when I went there to make sure I had the steps right, there was no padlock. I'm an admin account, so maybe a padlock shows up for non-admin accounts? In any...

    Is your account an admin account? You have to be an admin to change network settings. If you aren't an admin, log into your admin account and make the changes there. Greyed out seems to indicate you...

    Sorry, I thought you knew more about the Network settings from your earlier post. No, you do not use the DNS that way.

    Open System Preferences, then Network, in the left column select the...

    Heh! That's what Apple told me, too--a week. Took 4. Hope it works better for you!

    Welcome to the forum.

    First, connecting to your internal WiFi successfully means the MBP is working properly, as far as hardware is concerned. That is good. Even without Internet, you should be...

    A lot of time! My system took just over a month to do facial recognition of about 10,000 images and about a dozen people. But eventually it did finish. As Bob says, leave it running, in the...

    Patrick, maybe it will connect. I don't have a system that old to test, but El Cap still had iTunes, iOS 13 doesn't use it. Not sure how that would work, but if you say it does and have the setup,...

    Hey, rim45, what is it you want to do on the iPad? There are some shortcuts to accomplish things without having to go one at a time. You mentioned "hundreds of pictures, tunes, notes," but what do...

    Again, go to the OWC folks, they are Mac experts and have enclosures for that drive. Plus videos on how to get to it. SSDs (Solid-State Drives) Designed for the MacBook Pro

    Check with OWC for an adaptor to read the drive: Mac-sales.com

    Assuming the dying machine didn't kill the drive, the data should be readable with another Mac and the adaptor.

    As for the...

    Not sure about that. Your iMac can back up the iPad, but I don't think there are any tools to do the clearing/cleaning from iMac to iPad. For example, there is no real way to see the files on the...

    Welcome to the forum.

    1) No
    2) Yes

    Basically, BootCamp creates a dual boot setup where you boot the hardware into whichever system you want. The two don't share anything, really, as they are...

    Just to be sure, the version of OS on the external is the same as the version on the internal? DU is updated with the OS, so you need the same DU as the internal. Particularly with APFS changes at...

    DU cannot fix the drive from which you are booted. To enable repairs, boot from an external drive and run DU from there, or boot into Recovery (If you have it) and it can fix the main container...

    Sly, what I found is that the sparsebundle seemed to be "fragile" in the sense that I would get an error message about the file being corrupted, never found a way to fix the corruption, led to...

    Have you talked to fastmail about the issue? Sounds more like a server-side error than a user problem to me.

    Yeah, they get really dusty over time. I replaced a drive on an iMac and the amount of dust inside was astounding!

    I know that, you know that, but maybe the programmers and designers didn't know that. If you were actually hard of hearing, with hearing loss, then when the buds are not in, the louder volume of the...

    Good job! The slowness is probably Spotlight indexing the drive. If that's it, it will speed up in a day or so when the indexing is done. Indexing is in the background at low priority, so it takes a...

    To keep from having to reboot every time, what I do is to create the contact first as a contact, then drag/drop it on the group. Works every time. Tried creating the new user IN the group, like you....
