    Diskwarrior and SSDs

    Given that Diskwarrior doesn't seem to be coming up with a new version which covers SSDs, is there anything similar on the market which will help those of us who think our directories need looking at...

  4. Creating tracks in iTunes

    Is there any EASY way of creating tracks in iTunes, from one long recording?

    I've read several ideas on Google, but they seem very cumbersome.

    Yes to both. Unfortunately, there is no real help from Apple Support re. calendars going a bit wrong, and unlike most small programs you can't, of course, simply delete then reinstall bits of OSX.

    Thanks Patrick. (I thought I WAS backing up adequately, until I read your 'How to back up' link. Seems I was only archiving ONE of my two running calendars!)

    I shall proceed with caution.

    Thanks Sue. I've tried the Terminal route, and it's okay, but you have to turn it OFF each time you want AirDrop to act normally, so it's cumbersome.
