    Yep. That's why my daughter and her Ph.D. husband homeschool their children. Don't want to waste their time in public schools.

    I guess I could dream, right? That kind of system really does a great job of preparing the little snowflakes for the real world.

    From those locations, the downloads are relatively safe. But don't download from "aggregator" type sites -- Download.com, softonic, soft<<anything>>, etc. Stick to either the Mac App Store or the...

    Bob, it's ok to view files in finder. And you can even copy them directly. But don't erase or move any in Finder or the TM database gets corrupted.

    For the OP, another option might be to boot in...

    For DU to do a repair, the drive has to be unmounted. But I suspect TM has it locked to prevent the drive being unmounted. Stop TM, then see if the drive will unmount. But if you have to leave soon,...

    There used to be some arrows to make the sidebar go away, but they disappeared a day or so ago and the sidebar is now a permanent annoyance.

    Assuming you mean running First Aid under Disk utility. If it's a TM backup it can take a very, very long time to test that drive.

    Not sure you actually got rid of it completely, Dave_R. Timer bars hang up all the time, you have to let them run to completion. Force quitting usually leaves trash all about from the process. AVG...

    Everymac.com says those two models are both 2020, so not different years. You can see the difference if you go to Everymac.com and enter the model numbers.

    They are trying to sell some software to do the uninstall, but do give directions on how to do it manually. I...

    Not getting argumentative, but this article SSD Lifespan: How Long Will Your SSD Work? says the average single-level cell NAND supports 50,000 to 100,000 write cycles. MLC and TLC flash is lower, but...

    A bit of philosophical meanderings on how technology changes over time. Way back in the day of hard wiring business machines for punch card process (Yes, I go that far back, albeit through my Dad,...

    Randy, can you elaborate on that, please? I'm not challenging it, but that's the first time I've heard that said. I had read a few months ago the exact opposite, that because SSDs don't suffer speed...

    Yes, if you delete on the iPhone, they will be deleted from iCloud. Again, maybe a wizard can come along and tell you if/how that can be handled.

    If you upgrade, I think you will lose the PPC programs that run under Rosetta. Somewhere back there Apple abandoned it and only Intel programs run. Just a caution for you to check before you do the...

    If you look at the low end iMac configurations, the drives are all slow (5400 RPM) anyway, which is going to make working with them slow, no matter the format. Fusion sort-of helps as the high use...

    Patrick, when a customer was vocal about rejecting our suggestions, I would listen to them, saying, "You certainly can do that," while thinking, "I do reserve the right to laugh at you later."

    Burst photos are pretty easy to do accidentally. Could it be that the images that don't sync are bursts? I think there is no harm in turning on bursts there. You can later on delete any accidental...

    It should be faster than that in those circumstances. I don't know of a way to "force" a synchronization other than to log out of and then back into iCloud.
