  1. Thanks, Patrick. That was exactly why I started...

    Thanks, Patrick. That was exactly why I started this adventure. My SSD was getting pretty full and to upgrade from a 1TB to a 2TB was going to be a pricey move. So I decided to take some things off...
  2. I would be leery of that, myself. Here is what...

    I would be leery of that, myself. Here is what Apple says to do: What to do before you sell, give away, or trade in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

    In summary, it looks like you...
  3. Well, it's been an adventure. Started the backup,...

    Well, it's been an adventure. Started the backup, as I said in the post #13 at 7:10 today, just a few minutes after 6 pm. It just finished for the second device. So that took 3 hours to do two...
  4. Yes, they use links to files that are unchanged,...

    Yes, they use links to files that are unchanged, much like TM does. So you need to delete backups through iMazing. But the issue I had was that after telling iMazing to use a different location for...

    The tplinkwifi.net is just a network address, not a drive address or drive. In that network is a drive called sdb1, and that is the drive you have attached. You can't move files to tplinkwifi.net...
  6. Bob, it totally depends on how much data is in...

    Bob, it totally depends on how much data is in the backup. In my case the two devices total about 250GB of data, so the backups should be about that size, given that I only have the one backup of...
  7. Ian, thanks, but we'll never know if that would...

    Ian, thanks, but we'll never know if that would have worked. I've totally eliminated all of iMazing, plan to start all over.

    For those reading this later, I used AppCleaner to clean out most of...
  8. Bob, I fully expect the backups to take a lot of...

    Bob, I fully expect the backups to take a lot of space. That's why I put them on EXTERNAL drives and not the internal drive in the MBP. That 200GB is in addition to the 250GB taken up on the external...
  9. Have you tried removing the printer from the list...

    Have you tried removing the printer from the list of printers, rebooting, then reinstalling it? Don't use any Epson software, just open System Preferences, Printers and Scanners and click the "+"...
  10. iOS 12.4 released, fixes Walkie Talkie with  Watch

    Subject says it all.
  11. WatchOS version 5.3 released. Fixes Walkie Talkie

    Apple just released  Watch OS 5.3, with fixes to Walkie Talkie and some other updates. Requires iPhone update 12.4, also released today.
  12. iMazing taking up 200GB of drive space!

    The free space on my internal SSD had declined a bit ago. I've been trying to cull what I can and move what I can off the internal to a external drive. Daisy Disk informed me that iMazing was taking...
  13. You could make a backup, then do a factory reset,...

    You could make a backup, then do a factory reset, then test to see if it recharges ok, and if it does, do a restore. That process would eliminate any battery hog in the system that is running in the...
  14. Never mind, Sly beat me to it.

    Tomos, the snapshots issue is somewhat overblown....

    Tomos, the snapshots issue is somewhat overblown. What happens is that when you turn on TM it makes a full backup. Then every hour it makes an incremental backup of what has changed. If it cannot...
  16. It's not a drive problem, I don't think. For some...

    It's not a drive problem, I don't think. For some reason the SSD is being slow at writing, but that is not related to the kernel task heavy usage. And you don't want to run anything overnight to...
  17. Well, if the fans are running hard at the same...

    Well, if the fans are running hard at the same time the CPU goes all busy and the machine slows down, it could be a failing sensor on the logic board. Not good news if that's it. You may have to take...

    You could try an SMC reset to see if that makes any difference.

    Does this help: If kernel_task is using a large percentage of your Mac CPU - Apple Support

    Or this: See how apps affect Mac performance, battery runtime, temperature, and...

    Ok, we are making progress. On that CPU tab, if you click on the header for "% CPU" it will sort the items in the list by usage. Do that to get the heavy users at the top and wait for the runaway....

    Well, one other strange thing is that Etrecheck thinks there is a runaway process. And it shows 200%+ in "Other" processes. You can open Activity Monitor to the CPU tab, sort by CPU usage and see...
  22. The one strange thing I see in the second...

    The one strange thing I see in the second Etrecheck report is the write speed to the drive. The report says: Write speed: 111 MB/s Read speed: 1698 MB/s. It was more in the first report, about 290...

    If you read the thread and what Paul said in Posts 1, 5, 9, and 12, he can attach the drive through the TP-Link router, and can read/write to it as a drive, it is just that for some reason...

    I would not recommend any signal booster. I just don't think that's a good idea as it is a bandaid that may or may not work and that if it doesn't, is a total waste of money (and time).

    There is...

    Patrick, every lot in the city (and this city is NOT unique, it was the same in just about every place I have lived), has an easement to guarantee the city access to a certain area of the property....
