Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer. With the release of the Lisa, which had its own OS, Apple and computing entered the graphical age; it was followed by the Macintosh, which offered a series of "System" operating systems. Other Mac operating systems included PowerPC until Apple acquired NeXT and folded it into the Mac OS. Current operating systems for Apple devices are Mac OS-X and iOS.

I have a collection of about 10,000 photos taken in my travels to various countries and they have been set up to be randomly shown as my desktop picture. My problem is that I often don't remember where the photo in use was taken and I'm hoping to find a way or an app that would display that location in a corner of the wallpaper.  The 'Photos' app knows where they were taken so it should be possible. I'm looking for a solution for my desktop, can anyone help me out?

Hi,
A client of mine has just bought the latest 13 inch Macbook Pro and would like me to move his files
from a much older Macbook. I don't want to do it wirelessly so I thought I would buy an adapter to
hardwire connect his 2 machines and do it that way or remove his old HDD and connect it externally.
His old Macbook has a regular USB port and his new Macbook is cofigured as follows:
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports with support for:
Charging
DisplayPort
Thunderbolt (up to 40 Gbps)
USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10 Gbps)
It is not clear to me whether or not the new Mac's USB-C ports are able to transmit receive data, via an adapter, from the
old Mac's HDD. Can they?
If not how do you migrate data from an old Macbook to a new Macbook Pro.
Thanks

Hi

I use Twitter, Telegram & RSS feeds to follow new security treats. I also have many groups and users I follow in LinkedIn.

The problem and question:
Each time I start the LinkedIn app all contributions are unsorted. As an example, I have posts that came 1h before, then 6 days ago and the last 2h ago. Why is this so? With Twitter, Telegram, RSS feeds all are sorted as they were posted. The other annoying thing is that when I click the home button it jumps to the uppermost post. Then I must go down to the last post I red. If I still remember it ... :-)

How are you following LinkedIn contributions? Do you use another app?

Thanks for helping me

Do you find that it is helpful/pruduent to reload MacOSX "every once in a while" similar to how Windows users to so with their PCs.  

I have a MacBook Pro early 2015 running 10.14.2 and it used responsive and never freeze for a few seconds or be slow to start up.  I've done all the optimization/clean up/memory elimination/et cetera I could to do it and it just doesn't feel "as good" as it is did originally.  However, I do use it daily (all day basically) for work.

Would a reload help or is the hardware just wearing out?

(I know there is one way to find out but I just wanted to get some opinion before I go to the trouble of doing a complete reload!)

Hi guys

A lot of our Macs that connect to the server Windows 2012 which hosts their files, have issues from time to time. The problem mainly is the locking of files. So one person will go in there and try to save a file and they'll be told their file is locked when nobody is actually using it or doing anything. Windows PC's have this issue from time to time to, but Macs seem to be the biggest culprit.

Have any of you used products like Acronis Files Connect? Or does anybody have a solution? I would have said I'd build a Mac server but that's not possible either as that would mean a separate server for Macs and a separate one for Windows machines when they all need to collaborate.

Thanks for helping
Yashy

How delete an app that is locked?

I no longer use CrashPlan, but can not delete it, since it's locked. (Mac)

CrashPlan Locked
I can not log in since the account is gone.

I do seem to be able to access CrashPlan Service Preferences, but doubt they would do anything since there is no connection to the host.

Has anyone experienced slow backups with Time Machine?  Right now, I have 1.11GB to backup and it says 4 hrs (only backed up 60MB).  I am on a GB network and we are backing up to a NAS.  I copied my VM (80GB) to the network (same destination NAS) in about 10 minutes a few days ago so it's not network speed, disk speed, etc.

MacBook Pro Model A1707 Intel i7 2.6GHz, 15 Inch, 2016, 16GB RAM  & Intel HD 530 graphics boot but cannot connect to any network (only wireless is an option) and so "crashes" with "a critical update must be installed but cannot connect to network" so all I get it the option to try again or shutdown. So I have a few questions please
1. Is there an option to connect to a cabled network (I do not see any RJ45 connectors on this laptop)
2. I believe the SSD on this laptop is on-board so is there a way to get any user data off this drive if it won't boot in IOS
3. Any other suggestions to get it working again without risking overwriting existing user data.
Thank you.

hello everyone I have a user that's running Mac OS Mojave the user deleted a folder by accident and then empty the trash can. I am very familiar with NTFS and fat partitions running Drive recovery software to recover things that were deleted in the trash can but I've never had this issue with a Mac any suggestions? also, they were running iCloud backup but because they remove the folder and threw it away it removed it from the iCloud.

I am thinking of taking out the drive and connected it to another mac using my USB to serial cable but I do recall in the past that I used a thunderbolt to USB to connect a hard drive of a non-booting mac to another mac to access the drive, I am wondering would this work instead of removing the drive?

I have a mac book pro that since Thursday, all of a sudden, it disconnects from the LAN.  The wifi works fine.
I replaced the network cable and the 5 port switch that it was plugged into. I have also tried a different computer with the same cable, and
it didn't disconnect with a different computer.   Since a different computer works fine with the same network cable, I'm thinking there's an issue with the MAC.

I don't use MACs much, so suggestions I can try to isolate the issue?

I'm currently using DHCP with windows servers.  I have about another 9 or 10 MACs on the network, and no one else reported any issues just yet.

Thanks. D

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

Is there a way to setup a specific folder to backup to iCloud instead of the entire Desktop?

I have a bunch of files I want to place in a folder on my desktop, but I don't want it to backup to iCloud.  I have another folder that I like having the files backup to iCloud.  Can this be separated?

Two physical SSD drives and one Time Machine backup

I am about to upgrade my MacBook, which has a single 500 GB SSD, and I need more space ASAP. I bought that drive in 2013.

I would love to get a new, fast 1T SSD, but don't have the cash, and am considering using the CD drive on my MacBook for a second 500 GB SSD.

But how does this work with Time Machine?

I love to be able to plug in an external backup drive and know that when that external drive is unmounted, it contains all the latest files.

What about if I had two physical drives?

How does Time Machine solve this new wrinkle?

Hello, I have this incredibly weird problem on an old iMac. The customer doesn't remember, but it must be at least 9 years old.
Anyway, this is what happens: when I get to the login page, any mouse doesn't left click. Not the official mouse, not a mouse with cord, none of them. The pointer moves but I can't left click anywhere.
So I made a backup and tried reinstalling MacOS: well, mouses won't left click during the install procedure either. The keyboard works, but no mouse will left click.

I sincerely don't know what may be the problem here, so I decided to ask here and see if anyone had a similar problem.

Thanks.

Using MacBook Pro (late 2011) 2.4GHi7 w 16GB mem 750GB HD partitioned 430GB Mac (42GB avail)/ 231GB Win (31GB avail) Journaled HFS+;
  running High Sierra v10.13.2 w Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac Pro v14.0.1
  Using 2 Airport Time Capsules 4th Gen v7.6.9, 3TB ea formatted AFP (the one being used for backup through Time Machine reports 923GB free through Disk InventoryX app)
  Time Capsules run under Airport Extreme 5th Gen v7.6.9.

Backups through Time Machine > Time Capsule are taking 6+ days (not sure of exact time; I'm having to cancel them).

Ran a few tests (under only MacOS; Windows not booted; Parallels not running); Wi-Fi turned off; Time Capsule connected to MBP via ethernet; running no other apps at time:

Test 1:  dragged 1.0 GB app file from MBP HD to Time Capsule to check write rate  RESULT:  Took over 25 minutes (approx 0.7 MB/s)
Test 2:  ran LAN_Speed Test to Time Capsule with 100MB packet size RESULT:  1.4 Mbps writing to TC, 1.7 Mbps reading from TC

Given the specs on the MBP and TC (1Gps ethernet port) the data transfer rates are excessively slow.

What can I do to fix this?  I can't leave my MBP tethered via ethernet to the Time Capsule for over a week to do a backup (need to take it to work daily).
