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.

I have a client who has a iMac which currently still sits in oSX version 10.7.5.
I thought we could go into the iTunes App Store on this iMac and find the oSX version upgrades to upgrade it to a more current version of oSX.  But I Could not see it as an option to download in there.

Can anyone advise where I should be going to find the upgrades to manage this Apple Mac to be upgraded to a more current oSX version?

Thanks

hi folks

i am helping a client to recover some lost Word files on his Mac computer running Office 2011. i know two major folders to be checked should be:

1.  ~Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/Office 2011 Autorecovery
2. ~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.word

the first folder was there but nothing important was found. the 2nd folder didn't exist at all. FYI the 2nd folder is existing on my Mac Pro running the same version of Office for Mac, so i know that folder should be there.

however, his Office looks good, can open and edit files etc.

i am wondering in which situation that Containers folder could be missing and if there is any risk or impact for his data if the folder is missing?

kind regards,
bbao

Hi All Expert,

Good Day.

I am currently having issues regarding my Macbook Pro hard disk. It keeps prompting me that the hard disk is full when there’s pretty much empty when i first turn on my macbook. It usually starts prompting after 2-3hours of usage.
 
We did a hardware test and shows that there aren’t any issue with the macbook. I did tried calling into apple help desk and they asked me to delete a couple of items and did a ram reboot but none of those actually help in a long run. The disk full is usually due to system files and nothing related to my personal files.
 
The macbook is less than a year old, it jams sometimes when it comes to full hard disk.

My files are just 50GB and my harddisk is 250gb.
 
It will be great if you could be of some help on this issue. Much appreciated.

Thanks!

I received a message on my iPhone that someone in my area was trying to login using my AppleID.  After checking my wife's phone and my son's iPod - since both MacBooks were closed/asleep - I blocked the attempt and apparently clicked the option to lock the suspect machine.  Later that evening, my wife opened up her MBP and was greeted by a lock screen asking for a passcode.  I'd didn't remember setting any passcode when we setup the Mac, so I logged into my account via my MBP to see what I could see.  Her MBP shows up in my list of devices with the correct name, OS and serial number info.  I've tried using the link to generate a passcode but none of those will unlock her MBP.  Following tips on the Apple discussion boards led to a firmware password being set (awesome...)  Removing one of the DIMMs and resetting PRAM cleared the firmware password but now the MacBook boots into setup and shows what appears to be a locked volume where Macintosh HD should be.  I've scanned the volume using Ontrack Easy Recovery and it sees that there's data on it, but since it's an old version, it will only let me see anything using raw recovery, which doesn't yield any usable data.

It may be a long shot, but have any of you run across this scenario?  Will I end up making a trip to the Apple Store?  This is a 2010 15" so it's definitely not under AppleCare, so I'm not sure how much it'll cost me to get them to look at it, much less unlock or restore the info.

Thanks in advance for any …

Building an interactive eFuture classroom
Building an interactive eFuture classroom

Watch and learn how ATEN provided a total control system solution including seamless switching matrix switch, HDBaseT extenders, PDU, lighting control to build an interactive eFuture classroom.

we are a mainly windows shop but have some mac users.

one such user running el capitan stated "Sometimes when I try to replace files on the server they don't get replaced. Nothing happens. The workaround is ejecting the network drive and then re-connecting to it. "

i have found some information online that recommends “Try connecting to the drive with CIFS:\ instead of SMB:\”

i wanted to see if that might work or if i should go in another direction

I have a question regarding PowerPoint, we are currently dealing with a very tough client, see email request below:

"So, the PP template is not 100% correct yet. For example; on pg. 2 – The background image and logo is locked down. A staff member won’t be able to move it. That’s perfect.
 
However, when you look at for example pg. 3 – You are able to move the background image around as well as the logo icon. This should not be allowed at all. This is what I am referring to as “locked down template”. J" She requested that the logo icon be on every page, but this specific page includes a full page image and I had to place the icon over the image as the image covers the slide master layout.
 
"The same applies for adding a new slide and making a section from the different layouts. For example when I select; 3_Custom Layout – Should the  block, ‘Click on icon to add picture’ be able to move?" She is referring to an editable block from a slide master slide.
 

I created the .potx with PowerPoint 2015 on Apple OS, and as far as I am aware locking layers on a slide master to be on top of other layers isn't a function? Please correct me if I am wrong. I also don't really know how to reply to this client.

Hello,

Let me preface this question by saying I am a Windows guy with limited Mac experience.  My daughter, who is out of the country for a couple of months, is having serious problems with her MacBook.  I do not know the model number (can get it if it is important).  What I do know is it is roughly 4-5 years old and has a 256 GB SSD hard drive.  Her problem is that she keeps trying to delete files, but her free space has continued to shrink so that now she has less than 1GB free!  I don't know how the computer even boots.

A week ago she ran properties on her HDD and far and away the biggest storage hog were documents.  They were taking 142GB of space.  At that time, she had 5+ GB free.  I told her she should try to have 10% free, if not more, so assuming a Mac is like a PC she was still way past the safety margin.

Part of the problem I think has to do with iCloud.  She doesn't know how it got on her system, she does not like it.  But I think she has tens of GB of data (mostly pics and movies) on iCloud.  It looks like she has some kind of link on her computer, and the main file is in iCloud.  But maybe the files are local.  I am not sure.

I tried to help her two ways.  First, I got her setup with Dropbox.  She put roughly 12 movies into her dropbox folder that totaled 2 GB.  I logged into the Dropbox from my Windows PC at home, downloaded the files, and confirmed the movies worked.  I then stored them offline and told her to delete them.  After deleting the …

I am a single technician managing 7 stores.
I would like to go more mobile via cell phone iPhone.

I'm looking for something that I can create my own forums and have reminders along with documents.

I'm leaning towards making my own in access however if something is better I don't want to recreate the wheel.

In addition since it's just me I don't want it to be costly since it's an employment job. They have there own software however I want to Crete my own flow and ways of doing things we are allowed to do.

Reaching out of other pros see what you use!

Hi

Anyone any experience of imaging these machines ?  I have built my first machine and its all ok, I would normally use Clonezilla for imaging but it reports a GPT/MBR mismatch so doesnt work.

I will have about 40 machines to do so ideally looking for something fairly quick to deploy.

Thanks

Okay, I'm in murky territory because I half know what I'm doing. Here's the run down.

I'm trying to update Desktop Server on my Mac. The latest version has undergone big changes and it's been impressed upon us to backup our sites. I'm following the instructions here. I've gotten to the Activity Monitor part and am trying to get a sample of the mysqld.
I had two showing up in activity monitor due to an old Mamp installation. I used the command line to totally turn that off. So, now I have one occurrence in the activity monitor. But, when I go to get the sample it just hangs. I don't know why or what to do...

I need to make sure the mysql server is off before I make my backup.

I use iCloud for Windows to integrate my Windows calendar, etc. with my Mac OS X calendar, etc.  When a reminder pops up for Outlook for Windows 2013, I receive a message pop-up from Messages on my Mac. Can I either stop these pop-ups or at least stop the "ding" when they pop-up?  The ding makes me think I've received a message from someone and it's become annoying.

Thanks for any help.

Good day experts,

Ive set up a Windows Server 2012R2 with RDP services running. I have published Visio and some other Windows only apps so that Apple Mac users can access them. It works well the "Microsoft Remote Desktop Version 8.0.37" client.

However I am hoping to add file association so that if some clicks on an within finder Visio document it automatically launches the RemoteApp. I believe this can be done on the Windows client, but is it possible on the MAC version.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
Jamie
