Hi
I have an iDrive subscription, 2TB, with 2 accounts, mine and my mother.
We both need data backing up. me code en masse, 24/7, she paint en masse 8/7 not to mention diary and ladies/book/painting/prayer/garden clubs.

It looks like that having an account means one repository to backup into.
Whenever I backup my MacBook, it is a single entity, It doesn't do date-specific backups, right? I only get one restore data-set?
My mother will get her own one, also..
So, if we just backup whenever we need to, it should all work out?
She'll insist on doing it every night, FYI
I might do it once a week.
I was keeping my Python code files on iCloud. What are people doing? A mix of the two?

Thanks

Hi, i had a friend of mine, she brought her mac laptop (model below):

- MacBook Pro, Retina, 13-inch, late 2013
Processor 2.4GHs intel core i5, Memormy 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Serial Number: C02LG613FGYY

She showed me that her Storage is 50.49 of Photos but she is aware that in her iphoto folder only has about 10 photos and the rest she had deleted them. She is confused as to why her storage is 50gb of photos - maybe they are stored somewhere which we are not aware of? Please can you advise?

mac OS 10.13.2 will not start after setup of 2nd User Account. 2nd account always available but never logged in.

After activating existing OS 2nd account, Mac will not start in Safe Mode or using Option + Command + P + R Keys

Progress Bar ran for > 1 hour without startup.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204904 - this displays 'macOS Utilities'


As last resort I have recent Acronis 2018 backup and current Time Machine disc

Best method to restore/restart OS without losing data?

My goal is, of course. to restore macOS without loss of Logins, data or program files.

An office of 9 Macs. All up to date OS wise. All are joined to the domain xxxxxx.local and can log on and authenticate as domain users.

Connecting to the server to access a share  brings this message: There was a problem connecting to the server. URLs with the type "smb:" are not supported.

Only happening on one Mac. Any ideas? I've removed it and re-added it to the domain fine!!! It picks up and IP address just fine but SMB seems problematic. I had been fine for the past 10 days since I bought and installed it...

Thanks.

A MacBook 6.1, white body, Intel core 2 duo processor, 2gb; currently has OSX 10.6 installed.
The OS needs to be wiped out due to bad malware.
It does not have a recovery partition.
Boot from a OSX 10.6 install disc, and  after selecting the preferred language, it displays, can not be installed on this device.

Not sure what else can be done.  

Thanks for any help!

I currently use Apple Magic Trackpad with a Lenovo 8" tablet (Android 5.1) for a customized field Astronomy setup. I'm looking for a very specific size and resolution (7.75" to 8",  1024x768 ) to replace the current tablet, but have found that Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility is spotty at best. Compatibility varies not just within versions of Android but also within point versions and also manufacturers. I'm trying to find a method to predict Bluetooth Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility within a certain device without having to actually have the device in my possession to test it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have an iMac running Sierra. This is connected to a network printer in a small office. The network printer has a static IP address. The other Macs in-network, have no issues printing to this device at any time.
On the iMac in question, my client is running Parallels with Windows 8.1 installed. Simply put, they can print from the OSX side only when Parallels is closed. After you open the virtual machine, the printer simply goes to Offline and cannot be connected to. There is no problem printing in the virtual environment.
Obviously, they can close Parallels to print to get by, but ultimately this is a system that did work up until a week or two ago. I have reinstalled the latest printer drivers from the manufacturer in OSX. I have also found many, many forums addressing this exact issue. Some dating far back, but none of the solutions see relevant to my scenario. The client believes they may have changed a setting in Parallels inadvertently. This is plausible but honestly, I am a PC/Network guy and do not interact much with OSX.
Ultimately we just want them to be able to print again normally in OSX and Parallels simultaneously.
