    OK, that theory is shot. I must say that your list is more than I would have expected. My wife and I have one iMac, three MBPs, one Mac mini, three iPhones (one is old and being used as a security...

    Interesting rant. Just out of curiosity, how long have you been in Thailand? I'm just wondering if any/all of these are somehow related to that move. Changing regions can create "interesting" effects...

    The message was not from Flash, but a spoofer who just wanted to get you to install what they wanted and needed the password to do so. Once you have flash installed and the pane in Sys Prefs, one of...

    Nope, that's part of Apple's security. Nothing can be installed without your ok. It's up to you to be the watchguard.

    As for Flash, it's not at the Adobe site. If Flash is installed on your...

    I never used that function, but just turned it on and it works fine on my AW4. The first time I raised my wrist, the screen immediately showed what was playing. The second time it didn't but there...

    Paul, that is an amazing story. Fortunately, none of my credit cards or accounts have been attacked as a result of the data loss. I do have the watches in place at the credit bureaus and no new lines...

    If you want to be certain that the system is clean, get DetectX Swift and run it to find any malware that may have crept in. The really nasty part of the "update Flash" scam is that by giving it...

    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.

    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...

    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.
