I have run it on about 500 files and it mostly runs OK but it has failed about 30 times. Do you think that the delay needs to be increased? Is there anywhere to look for why it failed?

10 Questions to Ask when Buying Backup Software

Choosing the right backup solution for your organization can be a daunting task. To make the selection process easier, ask solution providers these 10 key questions.

File storage in the cloud for Mac, PC, iPhone

I want the cloud storage location to act as a network file share, not a  file distribution center where copies everything to every device you have.  With the small size of SSD drives that is proven to be impractical.

How do you store items in the cloud and not have them synchronize everywhere.

I am testing out Cloud Mounter and Commander 1 Pro on the MAC

Hi,

When working with the terminal on a MAC OS X system, the "open" command, offers the option "-R" to only show a file or directory in finder but not open the file.

As far as I tried the "start" analogue at the Windows command line, there isn't such an option. How can I accomplish this?

Best Regards

Klaus

A friend of mine is an Android user.  In the past, I could use Messages on my iPhone and Mac to text message them.  The outline of the messages with them would be green (which usually indicates they're a non iPhone user).

A recent update on my Macbook have suddenly made it not possible for me to get texts from my friend.  I still get texts on my iPhone, but they are not showing up in Messages anymore on my Macbook.

How do I turn this back on?

What are the correct methods for setting up a local NAS as the destination for holding Time Machine backups on a Mac OS Sierra v. 10.12.6 Mac?

The path where I would like to store these backups is 10.99.199.249.

I have typed in the following command within the terminal:

sudo tmutil setdestination -p afp://TimeMachine@10.99.199.249/Backups/MBP

Open in new window


However, I receive the message "Failed to open session. (error 5)
The backup destination could not be set"

What can be done to fix this issue so that I can use the NAS as the backup destination for the Time Machine backups?

The Mail application opens only in the icon in the dock (I can see the unread mails) but not in the Window. When I open the Internet Accounts in the Systems Preferences, then Mail opens correctly. How can this be fixed?

Someone has created this Macro for me to import data from a number of workbooks into the one in which the macro is running.  All workbooks are in the same folder.  Trouble is, although this runs fine on a Windows PC (Excel 2016), it doesn't run on a Mac (also 2016).  It comes up with an "Run-time error '53' File not found".

Incidentally, the last line calls another Macro I recorded that just Word Wraps a column in the workbook.  The last line of that calls another macro that adds in some text to say that the macro has run successfully.  I don't think the error is about the calls but if you can suggest how to add the lines into the first Macro, below, that would be great.  

Any ideas what is preventing this run on a Mac?
Thanks

I have 2 macOS 10.12.5 + HP 2055DN LaserJet + HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 all Ethernet [CAT-5] connected to Apple Airport Extreme.

Ever since I backed up one of the Macs with resident Acronis, a request to print from either Mac returns:

This printer has been paused. Do you want to resume printing?

If you do not want to resume the printing of jobs, you may add this job to the printer for later printing. If you select Resume and the printing of jobs cannot be resumed, this job will automatically be added to the printer.

Cancel / Add to Printer / Resume


The result of all this is NO Printing! Nada, Zilch - nothing. No matter which option I select or how long I wait. Rebooting all except Airport Extreme does not help. Sometimes the 8210 control panel displays ‘Printing’ - it does not.

As some of you may know, I have been trying for some weeks to establish a fixed IP address for this printer.l NO Luck Yet…

When I power up the printer, the IP address is: 10.0.1.134 - before the Acronis backup, I could print from both Macs until the 8210 timed out and I had to reboot the 8210.

As you might expect I am getting desperate…

If it were not that I need the color printer and there is an AC unit in my office window, the 8210 would be a candidate for Defenestration.

A solution would be most welcome !!

Does anyone on here have any experience auditing Mac OSX and MacOS laptops specifically for PCI Compliance? If so, how did you end up logging from them to a centralized server and what did you use? I am attempting to use OSSEC to pull the logs from /var/audit/current but would /var/etc/com.apple.authd be better? Or /var/log/system.log?) The purpose of this is to satisfy PCI DSS req. 10.2.2, 10.1.5. If I use OSSEC will I need to create a custom decoder for OSSEC for using the praudit command on /var/audit/current?

Hello all,

I have a 10 TB GDrive external hard drive that I am trying to use to back up my Mac Pro OS drive. The external drive is formatted as exFAT and is accessible on a Windows 7 machine but not on the Mac Pro regardless of whether using a USB or thunderbolt cable. The drive powers on completely when the cable is connected but I can't see the external drive in Finder or on the Desktop. It also does not come up in the Disc Utility.  

Thanks for your help with the above situation.

I have purchased plenty of external drives and never had a problem making them work with Time Machine. Until now.

I pleaded in the drive, selected "Encrypt", added the password...

I was then told it would delete everything on the disk and said OK.

Then, it generated an error.

When I insert the drive get the attached error:

Disk error
What shall I do next?

Thanks

I have an iMac running 10.6.8 snow leopard.  It is an intel core 2 duo, 3.06 Ghz, with 4 GB of DDR 3 Ram.  I used the computer to search for updates.  There were no updates available.  There is a lot of confusing information both from Apple and on the internet re how to do this.  Much of it is outdated.  Apple changes the rules on a very frequent basis.  Bottom line...how do I update this computer...the browser is currently giving me problems...i.e. not working properly...Safari.  
I went to the App store for Apple and the only thing available is Sierra.  I am reluctant to jump forward to Sierra  because I do not want the computer to become sluggish.
Also, when I figure out how to do the OSX upgrade will I need an apple id and an administrator password?
thanks,
capreol
