    Well, at one time I had a fairly high security clearance which required me to fill in forms that had a ton of personal information. And then the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was hacked and...

    Bob, he doesn't have a problem, he wants to know his backup is good before upgrading from High Sierra to either Mojave or Catalina. Other than checking that TM opens the backup, there isn't anything...

    So, getting back to WHY you asked the question, if you have a recent TM backup and it completed normally and you can open TM and see the backup in the window and on the sidebar, then you should be...

    I found this statement about the Verify Backup option: I suspect the reason it's there for networked drives is that they are stored in a different format than directly attached drives, so you cannot...

    You do NOT want to delete .inprogress files/folders. Those are the newest backup being held in place while TM rebuilds the links it needs. They will look large, again because Finder sees the links as...

    Have you looked at iCloud Drive, or gone to iCloud to see what is there? Until you know what is there you don't know what to stop.

    Paul, being anonymous on the 'net is practically impossible. Having a Google account and an Android phone is a double whammy. They know where you are and what you are doing, at least on the phone and...

    Two words: Google and Cookies. With those two working, it wouldn't be too hard for Humana to know who you are. Google tracks everything, every time you use it, every action you take. Having a Google...

    You mentioned two Macs. Are they both on the same OS? Do you sync them? I am wondering if it's some interaction between them that is causing the symptoms.

    Mine has not changed since I set it and posted about it. So it's something unique to your setup.

    In System Preference/Mouse what are the settings for the mouse? The trackpad?

    Does it say why it's not capable? That is a strange way of referring to it, normally it points to not enough memory, or storage or the machine being too old. How much memory do you have and how much...

    You don't have to actually store the files in Photos, you can leave them on the drive, just import them into Photos to get to the tools. As I said, as long as when you open Photos the drive is...

    Do not use Finder for any activity with Time Machine backups. What you see in Finder if you look into backups.backupdb are NOT files, but specialized links to files. If you muck with the links, the...

    That sounds like a bug in Grabit or Logitech. Have you gone to the developer website for either of them to see if there is an update or a bug reporting location?

    Next time it ISN'T working, look at those System Preferences to see if the monitor is there in that case. Could be useful information for troubleshooting.

    I'm also confused by that. What does that mean? You open Photos, find the image and click to open it for editing. Pretty straightforward access to the tools you need to edit an image.

    Nah, dumb luck. I will say that I tend to stay close to the Apple Ecosystem--my TB dock is from Belkin, I use an Apple Thunderbolt Display for an external monitor. I don't use too much exotic...

    Charlie, I don't think Catalina is anywhere near that bad. I'm running it just fine on a mid-2015 15" MBPr with a Thunderbolt external display, eleven external drives, two printers and a Thunderbolt...

    First, iPhoto no longer exists in your Mojave system. It's been replaced with Photos. That's a bit pedantic, I know, but it's important because the two don't operate the same way.

    When you import...

    Just one comment for kitjv26. Just because it looks like "just a cable" does not mean there is no embedded chip in the connector. It could be that either there is no chip, and the system expects one,...
