    Why are you mucking about in the innards of the photos database at all? There is no reason to do that, plus there is a chance you could mess it up and lose the entire thing if the database becomes...

    You can decide where the Photos database is by opening Photos Preferences and on the General tab see where the db is now. Use Finder to go there and copy the database to where you want it to be...

    No space savings, but I like having my images in Photos so I can sort, arrange, search and edit. I think all that can be done leaving the images on the drive out of Photos, just referring to them, so...

    The pictures should eventually all be in sync, if in Settings, Photos you have iCloud Photos turned on on all of them. It takes time, as Photos works with very low priority in the background to...

    That message is from Gatekeeper, a security protocol from Apple. If you got the app from a trusted source (the developer site is the most trusted) then you can right click on the app, select Open and...

    I don't think anybody has responded to the battery question other than to recommend coconutbattery (Which is an excellent suggestion, BTW). But looking at your system report, your battery capacity...

    Yeah, what happens is that somewhere in the link something got un-linked. I've read elsewhere that the Auto Unlock of the Mac with  Watch involved both WiFi and BT as the devices negotiate the...

    I think you are mixing up iCloud and AppleID. Do these two phones have the same AppleID? What do you mean by

    iCloud is storage in the "cloud" or storage you have purchased at an Apple site where...

    That approach would not be in Apple's long term interest. If it came to light that the "plan" at Apple is to make people's systems fail in order to force them to buy new, nobody would buy in the...

    I've had that happen before and as I recall I ended up unpairing the watch and iPhone, then pairing them again, going to System Preferences and ensuring that the option was selected to unlock the Mac...

    To directly answer your question, the "health" of a battery is the percentage of original maximum storage that remains. That storage is measured in MaH. So a phone rated at 1810MaH that now has a max...

    Could be the socket it went in was dusty/dirty/broken. That can create issues, no matter the size. Macs work with mixed products just fine. So if the two 4's work alone, and the 8 works alone but the...

    Keith, we don't close threads here, we just let them age out until somebody comes along and opens it. Then we call it a "zombie" and try to move the zombie-waker to a new thread. That's part of the...

    Good job, Keith! I see nothing in that report to worry about. The two antivirus software report is about Malwarebytes and Apple's own, plus Ad Guard. Nothing to worry about there, but you really do...

    Bob, thanks for that. I had not realized there was more on that page that was not on my screen.

    OK, given where the OP is and where he can go, I think the best way to get there is to spring for...

    Keith, The directions for posting the Etrecheck report are in post #102. You don't need to try to interpret it, we'll do that for you. The exact instructions are just below the last picture in the...

    It doesn't say that on the website linked to. In fact, it refers to being available at an Apple store and that it takes about 3 days to deliver by email. Nothing about the App Store at all. How did...

    Keith, I hope that does fix it, but you tried that approach already. Posts 88 through 95 show a sequence where Ian suggested that approach, you tried it, but the notifications came back again. Good...

    I would NOT trust a downloaded version of Lion. Apple didn't make it available that way, so what you will get will be a pirate version, with who knows what "other" stuff installed. Just do the right...

    Also for audi911, Windows-created installers for Macs generally don't really work as well as going to Apple for the authentic software. You are much better off springing for the $20.

    audi911, you could also install Lion from the install disk from Apple: OS X Lion (10.7) - Apple

    It costs about $20, should do a clean install and from there you can upgrade to El Capitan online...

    Welcome to the forum.

    I cannot find an A1227 model at Mac Specs, Prices, Answers and Comparison: EveryMac.com, Est. 1996. Does the Mac boot now from the old drive? If so, can you then click on the...

    I will defer to you on this, Bob. I have Safari banned from notifications so I don't know how it works. It really doesn't much matter at this point as Keith intends to have the Apple Store team "fix"...
