    2013 iMac crashes in sleep mode with SATA SSD

    Just installed a 1TB Crucial BX500 SATA SSD in a late-2013 iMac with a clean Mojave system. It seems that sleep mode is triggering crashes. I come back to a black screen, try to wake it up with keyboard/mouse input, then it reboots a few seconds later. Fixes attempted so far: *Disabled "power...

    Requirement to keep free space on SSD?

    With a traditional spinner hard drive, it is suggested that one keeps a certain amount of free space available - maybe 5 or 10% on a large 500GB drive. Suggestion of the percentage varies depending where one looks. Is that suggestion to keep free space also valid for an SSD with APFS...

    Can I update 2015 HDD to SSD

Then I remembered I updated that computer with...

    SD card to expand iMac memory

    My iMac has a 256GB SSD which is about half full. Most of my media (photos, videos, etc) including my iTunes library is stored on 4 external Samsung T5 SSDs (total capacity of 1.25TB). My photo and video collection is growing and rather than buy yet another SSD and a larger hub to plug it...

    New SSD, Clean Install, Time Machine Restore

    Hi, all. I have a late 2012 Mac Mini. Specs in signature. I'll be getting an SSD in the coming weeks. I already have Catalina 15.2 downloaded and made a bootable USB. Once the SSD is installed and I get Catalina on the new drive, will my time machine backup restore "everything"? Meaning...

    Spontaneous password changed - new Catalina bug?

    So I had something very odd happen to me yesterday that "almost" locked us out of a Mac. I had to replace the SSD in the Mac mini my wife uses due to what appeared to be a failing controller on the SSD that was in there (an OWC Aura that I put in a few years ago). The process went fine... I had...

    Can I put in a SSD on my 15", Touch bar 2016 MBP?

    I have a 15" 2016 MBP. I'd love to make it zip like new by putting in a SSD. However, doing some reading has me thinking that I can't do that on this model, that the existing hard drive cant be taken out. Am I right here? I'm hoping I'm wrong but fear I'm not.

    External SSD

    Hi again all, As some of you will know, I've recently fitted an SSD to my imac along with upgrading the ram from 8 to 16GB. I now have a WD external drive with a platter. I had to erase the drive because I hadn't formatted it to APFS which meant I couldn't do the update to 10.14.6. You all know...

    First External SSD to Fail on Me!

    Well, I've had a small number of spinning external backup HDs crap out on me over the last 6 years or so, but my 125 GB LaCie SSD is about to fail according to DriveDx (first pic) - this has been in use since 2013 on my MBPro as a third B/U (after TM & CCC) for a number of my Finder folders...

    Prime Day Purchases

    Amazon Prime Day has come and gone. Just curious what if any goodies MacForums members collected. I’ve heard of some people scoring tremendous deals on apparently mismarked items. My own savings were far less dramatic. By my estimate I averaged about 10% savings over previously (and...

    Cannot get anything from iTunes Store

    My iMac specs are shown under my avatar. iTunes opens and operates perfectly except that when I click on Store (as opposed to Library) and enter anything in the Search Field, I get no response. All my previous searches are listed, but, equally clicking on them does not yield any results. This...

    Mini Upgrade

    Hey all! I am thinking about upgrading my late model 2012 mini, 2.3GHz Intel i7 Quad-Core 1TB HDD 8 GB RAM. It's been an awesome system and I'm mostly still happy with it, I mainly use it for downloading (some net surfing) and to stream plex to our other TVs in the house. It's slow from time to...

    Early 2011 13" MBP worth upgrading or should I look at retiring it?

    My MBP has been all around the world with me. I maxed out the memory (8GB) and that's about it. It's kind of like a train. It can be slow to start, but once the momentum is up, it runs fine. Once its been idle overnight, it can take a couple of minutes for things to start running smooth...

    Macbook air decisions

    Hi all! Very new to the whole apple ecosystem but have decided to buy a preowned air due to being seduced by the quick loading times and incredible battery life (nice to be able to quickly have lab notes and know I don't need to desperately search for a power socket half way through the day!)...
