Hello - I am having trouble syncing my Mac photo albums with my iPhone 8. It was syncing a few weeks ago, but now appears to have stopped syncing updates to my photo albums and photo library from Mac to iPhone. The calendar still syncs, but photos do not. I have no idea why this could be. I have everything turned on (i.e. Photo Stream and iCloud Photos) on both my Mac and iPhone. Both area also completely up to date. The Mac just suddenly stopped syncing my photo album updates with my iPhone. Do you have ANY idea whatsoever why this might be? Help!

I've been asked to help with a iMac showing the beachball and being very slow.
The problems started after installing security update 2019-002 and Safari 12.1.
The OS was Sierra (10.12) first, then updated to Mojave (10.14) which did not solve the problem.

I have a screenshot of Activity Monitor:
There I see Safari is using 30.31 GB of memory and 29.64 GB compressed memory, 8 threads, 358 ports.
Memory pressure is red, general information about memory is
8 GB physical
7.54 GB used
  953.4 MB app
  1.10 GB wired
  5.50 GB compressed
459.3 MB cached files
662.0 MB swap

All accounts on that machine are affected.

I assume that heavy swapping is going on, slowing down the iMac. (I don't know whether it has a SSD or a HDD.)
However, what I don't understand and what puzzles me, is how Safari can use 30 GB of memory when there is only 8GB physical and only 662 MB swap space (that being "The space used on your startup drive by macOS memory management.").

That's my main question. But of course, any help on how to go about solving the problem is very much appreciated, too.

I think my 1st or 2nd question here. I have a new client. They are moving to a new location. They gave me this MAC tower to put in the new server room. I am told it uses Tunnelblick and that's how they connect to it. On the Mac I can find Tunnelblick only as an app to connect out. I get what Tunnelblick is. An Openvpn server/client. Is the server side not gui based or am I missing something? I feel like if they were using this as a vpn server there should be something for me to edit to allow for the new static? They don't know enough to give me the info. Anyone have any ideas (besides the fact that they should know more)?

HI,
I need a GUI client for sftp on MAC.
I have downloaded cyber duck. And i could connect to a sftp machine with port 22.
But then i tried another machine with port 7122. It seems it doesnt have ability to handle this port.
Although i am able to connect if from terminal.
On cyber duck if i manually change the port to 7122 it doesnt work.
It throws the following error :
Screenshot-2019-04-06-at-11.23.36-AM.pngScreenshot-2019-04-06-at-11.23.43-AM.png
Please help in suggesting some way to connect to this through some GUI client.

HI there,

i'm trying to get an iMac running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) to boot up again. It was constantly freezing up with the a continous spinning wheel so i was recommended to "Repair Disk Permissions", after doing this it will not boot back up again. It boots into recovery mode, asks me which language i want to use then i get
OS X Utillities -
Restore from Time Machine Backup
Reinstall OS X
Get help online
Disk Utility
There is no Time Machine backup so i opened Disk Utility and ran the various verify/repair disk & have included screenshots of the results.
I also ran diskutil list from Terminal & included the screenshot aswell.
I guess first think i'd like to know is if it's possible to back up my files from here & secondly is it possible to get it to boot up again without reinstalling. Also is this a sign that the hard drive needs repalcing?
I'm a novice with Macs & OS X so be as detailed as possible please & as always all help is much appreciated.

Hi

We are a school and I have created a single School iCloud account. I have added all the 4 iPads into the school iCloud account.
Using the school iCloud account, I have installed the default apps and updates on all the 4 iPads.

I will be issuing these iPads to the staffs and will they be able to use their own personal iCloud account and install their own apps on the school iPad?

We are a windows-based network and the iPads are only for the senior management and we will not go more than 8 iPads.

Any help and sugessions will be great
Thanks in advance.

what is the best way to remote into a mac from another mac with having control and without having to use teamviewer as its block via policy.

I would like to ensure that any folders or files created on a MAC always have full access to both administrators that use the MAC.
It seems that a folder was created however the permission on the folder was only based on the user that was accessing the MAC at that time, that was logged in.
I would like the permissions to show for both Admins - and I would like this automatically configured for any and all files and folders that are created on the MAC.
Is this possible?

Team,

I need a help on creating bat file script for outlook profile creation. I will be using GPO to deploy the script along all the workstations/ laptops connected to the domain, so that user don't need to manually configure the outlook. Also can some one also suggest me if its possible to include outlook rules in the script?

Also please note that this is for a Mac.

Can anyone please let me know the procedure, how to accomplish this?

Thanks

Hello!
I have a user who uses a Macbook Air that is on MacOS Mojave 10.14.3. He has an issue where he connects to the network drives on our file server and after some time encounters this exact issue:

http://www.thursby.com/why-does-it-say-connection-failed-when-i-click-server-sidebar

I wanted to ask if anyone has any new information on it since his OS version is definitely a few steps up from what are described as the problematic versions? Or if anyone has found a cause for it that can be mitigated? The only third party softwares he has are Office 2016 for Mac, Webex client with Outlook add-in, and SEP 14. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Weird phenomenon here ... I'm trying to share an Outlook 2016 calendar from person A with person B's Mac:

- the shared calendar is visible in person B's web mail interface
- it's not visible in person B's Outlook 2016 for Mac interface
- it's not visible in person B's iCal

Even after having clicked on 'accept calendar' and then 'show calendar' in Outlook 2016 for Mac on person B's Mac it simply switches to display the default calendar, the shared calendar doesn't appear ... (except, as indicated above, in the web mail view)

Any ideas!? Thanks!

Is there an IP address block list manager for the latest versions of OS X similar to Peer Block or Peer Guardian?  I need the ability to block communication between my Mac and thousands of IP addresses without slowing things down.  The block list manager should be able to import a list containing hundreds of thousands of IP addresses in a common format and prevent incoming and outgoing communication between the Mac and IP addresses in the list.

I recently removed a Mac from the domain.  Problem is I didn't copy a users folder before this happened, and now I don't have access permissions to the folder because it was a domain user account.  How do I gain local access to the folder's contents without rejoining the mac to the domain?

Hi Expert,

Can I check what is some of the nice free software used to create MAC bootable with the ISO in Windows? I will use it for high sierra.

Thanks!

We are using InDesign CS6 (for reasons), installed via Adobe Creative Cloud, installed on Mac OSX 10.13 and 10.14 Macs. Users are encountering frequent crashes. I believe the crashes are caused by incompatibility between InDesign CS6 and 10.13 / 10.14 . But, I can't yet DEFINITIVELY prove this. I believe a transition from CS6 to CC 2017 or later is needed. Can someone please provide the undeniable proof of this for me, or suggest a fix? All machines have the same fonts, are the same hardware, on the same network, etc.

Thanks!

I have a user using an iMac, I'm not sure of the OS right off, but I think he's good about keeping his system up to date.  

Adobe Premiere keeps crashing on his machine.  Naturally, I want to look at the application logs to see what is happening.  I have an administrator permissioned account credentials, so I'm logging in there. I look in the logs and I don't see anything there that indicates a crash.  In fact, it doesn't look like there's much of anything in this machine's logs at all.  This makes me think that perhaps logs are user specific and that I need to be logged in as him to find what I'm looking for.

Am I just looking in the wrong place for the logs that I'm looking for (I don't understand OS X logging just yet), or is my problem more likely or encouraged by the fact  that I need to be logged in as that specific user to get to the logs I need?
