    It is possible that the two drives we see displayed are actually the Macintosh HD and Macintosh HD - Data volumes not duplication at all but since Steve has renamed the Macintosh HD they may not...

    Yes, me too, however I was interested to see if there were changes related to the volume structure and that may apply to running from Recovery as well. As for the screen going dark, perhaps it's...

    I think you've got it nailed Ian. Suspending activity may also mean a better analysis of the system is being carried out.

  5. Disk Utility First Aid in Catalina

    Well that was a bit worrying. I was curious about First Aid in Disk Utility and how it would work with the two volumes in one structure which has caused a bit of conversation on these forums so I...

    I think you are the first person to have internet connectivity problems re to Catalina upgrade on this forum so I immediately suspect something else. Do you have a wifi signal on the menu bar? Are...

    Tedious it sure is. I had to do this once with Mojave and it is a slow process although I didnít do it all in a day. I elected to just redownload or copy the apps I used most and did the rest over...

    I donít agree, yes the was the freeze during the installation but I think that has been resolved with the supplemental update. Even if it wasnít just forcing shutdown and restart fixed that issue...

    Just to reassure you what you are experiencing is normal. The login screen is always (unless we can find a way to change it in Catalina) the default advertised desktop image. Changing it in System...

    Okay, let me get this straight;
    You have a Mac that is not yours that will not boot up from its internal HDD.
    You have replaced the hard drive with a Crucial MX500 SSD which did not work until your...

    I was a little surprised that it converted my Transcend 1Tb EHD to APFS prior to backup. I was rightly or wrongly under the impression that HFS+ was better if not advised for spinners but I could be...

    That’s great, thanks for getting back. I’ll add that to my tips and tricks file.

    I see where you are coming from, I chose to eject both but afterwards I thought why would I want to keep one or the other active? As it was I wanted to put the EHD away so I needed to disconnect it....

    So you have a Time Machine backup that appears as an option to boot the device. If you boot from that you will see a Recovery window. It will be slow. You should see options Restore from Time...

    There is no reason I can think of as to why this often works but it does. Try deleting the offending gMail account then re enter it as you would have done the first time and allow auto setup to do...

    Patrick I think I can answer that question. In post#2 I showed the file path to the relocated item from the Supplemental. I did not delete /Users/Shared/Relocated Items. Nor did I delete it in the...

    On ejecting the CCC backup I am presented with this dialogue box.

    This confirms what I thought when looking at the size of the volumes, they are the same size indicating to me that they...

    I have now completed a full CCC backup of my MBP running Catalina using CCC 5.
    The first thing it did was convert my USB EHD to APFS (thus erasing the HDD) which it notifies you before beginning...

    It was my understanding and experience that displaying Desktop, Downloads etc in the Finder Tool Bar are just a matter of selecting (ticking) them in Finder Preferences.
    If you need to locate it, it...

    I think Ian and Jake in post #2 explained the phenomenon very well. This is exactly how my HD displays in Disk Utility, one Volume is Macintosh HD and another that is Macintosh HD - Data.

    I found with the one that turned up after the supplemental update simply required an admin password to move to the trash. After that I trashed the alias and emptied the trash in the usual way.

    Agreed Jake, I think that's why it does not have an additional version number. But the problem I had hoped to be fixed, the folder shortcut of "relocated items" on the desktop still persists. ...

    Does the device recognize the Transcend USB (I assume it's an external HD) as bootable when you start up holding the Option key. If so you have a chance of reinstalling the OS if not the only...
