    HEy, I found an ACTUAL fix for Lion.

    It's detailed here: Enable "save as" and disable autosave in OS X Lion | ITworld

    This actually works with Text Edit. I couldn't make it work with Preview,...

    FWIW-

    I've recently discovered that "Aiseesoft Video Converter for Mac" does a great job of directly converting .MTS files. You can choose rom a large variety of output formats & resolutions, the...

    Thanks !
  4. Can I defeat the boot password?

    It's a small thing, but I can't stand having to enter my password just to boot my Mac.

    I like to hit the button, then go make a cup of coffee.

    With My G5 and Leopard, I never had to enter a...

    Yes, very simple if you're willing to use only one backup drive.

    Not me, thanks!

    I don't, because I don't have a convenient off-site location. I keep the other drives in a large fireproof safe. No real worries, and they are right there when I need them.

    I guess that's one way to deal with it, though it's slightly less elegant than a fully automated incremental backup.
    I must agmit, I don't fully grasp all the small details on this whole topic. It...

    I believe you are correct.

    the problem is, I don't think there's any other way to do it with Time Machine. It seems to expect to see the SAME backup drive all the time. When you pop in an...

    That's what I had expected, but that was NOT how it worked for me. I'm an audio pro & so have a LOT of data. I was using three 2-TB backup drives for my start drive & one data drive, & that data...

    What I suggest is that you stop calling the new drive a backup drive.

    If that's the only place you are storing your photos, then it's a data disk, NOT a backup! You'd want at least one actual...

    Tech Tool Pro should also do the trick, and personally I prefer it to Disk Warrior as it does more. Both are worth having, though, as sometimes a bad drive can only be fixed with one or the other....

    HEY, I'm Back. This was really bugging me, so I re-checked with my mid-level source at Apple, and also sent a specific query to DigiLloyd. They both concurred that, except in very rare cases,

    Excellent, thanks!

    That means I also don't have to store a ton of larger data until it's actually needed.

    FWIW, THIS MAY BE MY NEW PLAN:

    I was going to eventually get a 240 GB Accelsior PCIe SSD card, for my primary video / Photoshop editing. These will do ~ 762 MB/sec.

    HEY, WAIT A MINUTE:

    I decided to do a little more checking on that 6G issue. According to the following Bare Feats test, a PCIe eSata card does NOT go through the Mac's Sata II controller, and is...

    Of course, but very often a system will have various bottlenecks, rendering "the fastest" this or that unnecessary. For instance, did you know that drive speed has almost no bearing on Photoshop...

    Woah! I just checked with OWC, and it seems this is true. (thanks!)

    Not quite, but that's a very nice enclosure for the money!
    Here's why not: It's not a raid enclosure (just raid capable, meaning it recognizes the "port multiplier" protocol, and the card I linked...

    Thanks, Micro.

    I just read a DigiLloyd article where he considers 24 GB the minimum for both FCP and (surprisingly) Photoshop. - though I imagine the latter is only when doing bulk conversion of...

    Does anyone have an answer to my original question?

    I badly need to order a couple of new drives, and money's tight. Surely someone has tried both?
