    @Randy, You've been around Apple for a lot longer than I have, so I am hesitant to respond, but:

    1. I don't remember glass until more recently. However, from the articles, I took it that films...

    Randy, not exactly an apples to apples comparison there. The ten-year-old articles refer to plastic screen protectors that Apple got rid of. Hard to apply, lots of bubbles, lots of returns on them...
  3. @krs, don't be paranoid about it. All the article...

    @krs, don't be paranoid about it. All the article really says is that Apple is making it harder to get rid of the red flag for an update being there, not that there is any forced update. Windows does...

    Another great description for how TM works comes from James Pond (Pondini) a true wizard who passed away all too soon: How Time Machine Works its Magic
  5. That is NOT how it works. What you see in any...

    That is NOT how it works. What you see in any given date folder is a collection of what are mostly links to the last time the file/folder changed. If you copy that link somewhere else and delete the...

    If you create a brand new CCC backup on a new drive, it won't boot, according to CCC. However, continuing to use a previous CCC backup will boot. And even if you do create a new CCC clone, it can be...

    I didn't ask, Lisa did, but I don't see anything in the recently installed list that looks like a candidate for being the problem.

    Where did the list in post #22 come from? Are those the windows...

    It is in a section toward the bottom of the saved report. It's a section titled "Software Installs (past 30 days)"

    And BlueTooth.

    I installed it, but I don't see the Battery Health function. I went to Sys Prefs/Power Saver, no new button at the bottom as I have seen posted elsewhere. Is there a place to turn it on (the button,...

    If you run Etrecheck, one of the sections shows recently installed applications.
  12. Can I ask how you "shut down" the apps that you...

    Can I ask how you "shut down" the apps that you ended up Force Quitting? If you clicked the "X," that is not quitting, just pushing the app into the background, still running. You have to actually...
  13. The two images are too fuzzy to read. From the...

    The two images are too fuzzy to read. From the Etrecheck report, you don't need to run Clean My Mac as a resident process, just run it as you think you need it. That should improve performance...

    Couple of thoughts. Catalina has no iTunes, so that step is both not needed and probably impossible to do. You did not say what OS you are currently running, nor what kind of hard drive you have, nor...
  15. If you want to keep those old backups and just...

    If you want to keep those old backups and just add to them on the 4TB, use one of the cloners to move the backup. It will take a while because even though backup uses a lot of links and those are...

    Rod, this is what works for me. Go to Apple support ( Official Apple Support ) and type in "download High Sierra" or whatever version you want that Apple offered by download. Follow the links.
  17. If the progress bar is moving, it's installing....

    If the progress bar is moving, it's installing. Just be patient. Could be issues on the server side, or anywhere in the network between you and Apple.

    The original post was put up about 4.5 hours ago. Downloading DiskmakeX takes 3-4 minutes. Reading the directions, 2 minutes. Executing the command 1 minute. Total of a max of 7 minutes to be...

    There could be an alias for Photos in that folder, but normally Photos app is found in your home folder/Applications. If you created an alias to that application in the Photos folder, it could be...

    Yep, but the OP didn't SAY it clearly. I think you are correct, in which case DiskmakerX is definitely the way to go. I have not managed to get the createinstallmedia command to work, with the same...

    The suggestion to use DiskmakerX assumes that the OP wants to bootable installer. But post #1 doesn't say that, just that what is wanted is a bootable USB drive.

    So, for kribnensis12, what is it...

    trixey29, I am confused. How did you import the pictures into Photos? There are two ways to do that, and you can pick which one to use in the Preferences for Photos. One is to "Copy items to the...

    You really cannot quit Finder. If you do, it will immediately respawn. It has to be running for you to see the desktop and any of your files/programs. But unless it is in process of...

    @krs, I didn't address that because the poster did not cite any reference for what had been "heard" somewhere. I've never heard about SSDs slowing down dramatically. They work, work well, until they...

    Lots of really bad information in that article. SSDs performance, compared to spinners, is really so much faster that any slowdown that might be caused by the drive having to do some data juggling is...
