  1. Yeah, the dilemma is that given how much Catalina...

    Yeah, the dilemma is that given how much Catalina changes the drive layout, TM from Mojave doesn't know what to do. And TM from Catalina won't restore a Mojave system, either, if it works like every...
  2. Hi, Steve. Your images show DU, but in Show Only...

    Hi, Steve. Your images show DU, but in Show Only Volumes mode (A View option). If you use "Show all Devices" you will see the hardware, then indented will be Containers and then Volumes in the...
  3. Ron, it could be anything. WiFi frequencies are...

    Ron, it could be anything. WiFi frequencies are subject to interference from all sorts of devices, and with the proliferation of wireless stuff, the opportunities for interference have skyrocketed....
  4. EDIT: Nope that was about Safari. So, at least...

    EDIT: Nope that was about Safari. So, at least for me Patrick, the answer is "no, no notice." But I'm not running Catalina on this machine, so it may be showing up with a notice for those who are.
  5. What's next, New and Improved Revised macOS...

    What's next, New and Improved Revised macOS Catalina Supplemental Update? It's all a bit silly. I applaud Apple for addressing issues but the naming is going to run out of adjectives!
  6. I seem to dodge most of the bullets, Patrick. I...

    I seem to dodge most of the bullets, Patrick. I am holding off on Catalina because the changes were pretty big and I'll let somebody else to the minefield clearance for me. As I said, I did install...
  7. Patrick, I created a Catalina system on a USB...

    Patrick, I created a Catalina system on a USB stick and had zero problem with upper case letters in the account name. No 1984 here.
  8. The one comment I found really interesting was...

    The one comment I found really interesting was about Apple not using automated testing. Automated testing has been around for a long time, and is both faster and more complete, at least for...
  9. Interesting take on Apple's approach to software development

    Six Reasons Why iOS 13 and Catalina Are So Buggy - TidBITS

    That is a link to an interesting article from a former Apple developer. But before we get the usual crowd of "Apple isn't what it used to...

    I think it's just you, Patrick. I haven't had any troubles with any sized posting here at all. Has anything changed at your end?
  11. I think that a lot of folks who move to Catalina...

    I think that a lot of folks who move to Catalina are going to be "shocked" by some of the internal changes. If you just boot it, and use it, the fact that there are two Volumes won't impact you as...
  12. Actually, it does make sense if you remember how...

    Actually, it does make sense if you remember how APFS works. The Container has a certain capacity. Each Volume in the Container can use as much of that space until the Container is full. So if you...
  13. Can't say why the network was "crawling" but...

    Can't say why the network was "crawling" but normally it's more the network speeds than anything internal. Clearly the experiment with Catalina, in creating the two Volumes, and the restore to...
  14. One of the changes that Catalina brings is some...

    One of the changes that Catalina brings is some extra security. There are two Volumes created under Catalina, usually named "Macintosh HD" and "Macintosh HD - Data." I think I saw in your post you...
  15. 1. Mojave took longer to install because in the...

    1. Mojave took longer to install because in the process it completely changes the format of the boot drive from HFS+ to APFS. That change takes quite a while to accomplish. And it's mandatory in...
  16. OK, from that image, your 1T drive has 370GB...

    OK, from that image, your 1T drive has 370GB free, and 431GB in SafetyNet. The SafetyNet stuff should not get copied back as it is where CCC stores older files that have changed, giving you a...
  17. How much of what's on the CCC drive is in the...

    How much of what's on the CCC drive is in the SafetyNet folder(s)? If what is in SafetyNet is eliminated, will what is left fit on the SSD? (You will need to leave at least 5% free on the SSD for the...
  18. Your phone? Are you using the phone as a hotspot?...

    Your phone? Are you using the phone as a hotspot? If you click on the fan icon on the top bar, do you see the router, assuming you have one? If you are connected to your phone, and didn't intend to...
  19. OK, I'll back out of here. I've never been able...

    OK, I'll back out of here. I've never been able to boot any TM backup on anything but the machine for which the backup was made. I have been able to migrate data from a TM backup to a new machine as...
  20. What? Are you saying that the backup isn't really...

    What? Are you saying that the backup isn't really a backup of YOUR system but from some other? That's why it is not visible. It's not yours. Apple has pretty strong security to prevent any disclosure...
  21. One more thing, Patrick, about maybe defaults...

    One more thing, Patrick, about maybe defaults changing. In Post #13 I put two images from a virgin installation of Catalina. One was of the Finder view of MacintoshHD as it exists on that desktop. In...
  22. Patrick, that article was about ~/Library and...

    Patrick, that article was about ~/Library and incorrectly made the claim that the chflags Terminal command no longer worked. I just used it in Mojave to get the screenshots I posted, so it definitely...

    Here is that same home directory after Command-shift-.

    30459

    As you can see, what is hidden are not really "user data" type files.
  24. Patrick, here is, as an example, my Home folder...

    Patrick, here is, as an example, my Home folder directory:
    30458
    I did make Library visible but the rest are visible as default. Command-Shift-"." unhides system files like .Trash, etc, but...
  25. Nope. Those have been visible, and still are,...

    Nope. Those have been visible, and still are, without any strange keys. Where are you getting this information? I've never heard of it before. The only normally invisible folder was Library, that was...
