While repairing APFS Partition using Disk utility first Aid tool, I received an error message saying “First Aid Process Failed. If possible backup the data on this volume”. Then I restarted the Mac in recovery mode and again tried the same process but got the same error. Are there any chances of data loss? What Should I do to resolve this error message?

Exploring ASP.NET Core: Fundamentals

Learn to build web apps and services, IoT apps, and mobile backends by covering the fundamentals of ASP.NET Core and  exploring the core foundations for app libraries.

Backed up a MAC to Time Machine with encryption enabled. Backup complete now its encrypting data which my understanding takes awhile, much longer than the backups. I turned off Time Machine hoping it speeds up the encryption process. Question, I hoped to do a rebuild on the MAC and reinstall the OS after the backup. Will I be able to recover my data (don't want to re-image from the backups just recover data) prior to the encryption process finishing? It's been on 6% for awhile.

I would like to find a way where I can screen share from MacBook to 22x iMacs.
We are running a medical imaging course and it would be beneficial for the delegates to see the slides and content that is being shown by the presenter on a MacBook on the podium up close on the iMacs which each delegate will have in front of them. They will be using software on them later in the day.

I know I could use the native OSX screen sharing software but I wonder if it has limitations when trying to share to 22x iMacs simultaneously?

I presume to maintain performance that an ethernet/switch setup is best rather than attempting a Wi-Fi router.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

We are in a Windows environment and pretty much all our users use Windows computers. They are required to change their password (to log in AD domain) every three months by themselves. What they do is, press <cntrl>+<alt>+<del> and select  "Change a Password" to do the job.
Just recently, we got a Macbook and we don't know how to have this user change his own password (to log in AD domain). Can you help?

I have a Mac book pro which was running on old version - 10.9.7 with Windows running on boot camp. I am not familar with MAC side and always used windows only on this mac.

Recently, due to some issues on my iphone, had to take my phone and mac to apple store which ended up doing a big update on my mac i believe to version 10.13.7 and helped with my iphone restoral which was successfull.

I came home and logged in to windows and noticed that one of the partition on my windows side disappeared i.e Z drive. I originally had C drive and Z drive. I am not really concerned about the data on my Z drive as i do have it backed up but I am curious what happened to it ?  I checked disk management on windows and there is no partition.

I logged into mac side and could only see two drives BootCamp drive ( c drive of windows ) and the Mcintosh HD drive. It is as if my Z drive partition completely disappeared.

Two questions at this point:

1. Any idea what could have happened to my Z drive ? How can this just disappear ?  Is there something simple I am missing.

2.  Inorder to get Z drive back, I started process of Partitioning my Macintosh drive ( Currently 400 GB into 150 GB for Macintosh drive and 250 for new created Z drive )
     Its currently running the process and applying changes to the harddrive.

I am unable to connect my Samsung Galaxy CORE LTE cellphone, using Kies vesion 3, to my MacBookPro 2012 (OS 10.5.5 Yosemite). The "connect" box shows "working" continuously, with no success in connecting (to be able to transfer photos from my cellphone to my MacBook Pro. I have downloaded the most recent version of Kies, and installed it (but without uninstalling the previously installed version). Any suggestions to resolve this issue? Appreciatively, RBM

MacOS Sierra plug-in configuration a qualified success.  However, I have no CFB perspective.
Install log says:
Installation: Successful with errors.

Non fatal errors being two occurrences of

Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
 
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

Hello all,

I am looking for a free remote desktop solution for Ubuntu.

My company recently switched from Windows to Ubuntu for desktop computers, but our developers need to remotely connect (with access to the Ubuntu GUI) from their Macbooks.

For a few weeks, we have been experimenting with NoMachine; a wonderful, versatile, and secure application which I fully endorse. Unfortunately, their per-year licensing fees might be cost prohibitive (BTW, it is free for non-commercial use). As part of my due-diligence, I must find a free alternative (like we had when our desktops were on Windows 10).

Our criteria:
- Must be free to use without restrictions (or a significantly lower cost than NoMachine's $44 per user per year)
- Must pass our internal security testing. For one, it can't rely on external servers like Teamviewer.
- Must allow remote access to the Ubuntu desktop GUI from MacOS.
- Must be relatively easy to script and preset by admins for distribution in a standard Ubuntu image.

I've looked at a few options, such as:
  • - xrdp (potential problem: I can't find a recent binary and it seems like a dead project)
  • - VNC (potential problems: there are so many variations. Finding an acceptably secure one is still in the works. Might not allow for a remote session that locks/blanks Ubuntu's (host) physical monitor(s). Might not support dual monitors from host. One example that I'm investigating is x11vnc with RealVNC viewer on the Mac side.

How would one go about upgrading MacOS devices to the latest OS (High Sierra at the time of this post) through terminal commands only?  For example, a device running El Capitan needs to be upgraded to High Sierra.  I am looking to run this command across multiple MacOS devices, and for a command or script that could run on any MacOS device.

I am moving to my MacBook Pro; HighSierra 10.13.5 from my old PC that finally died. The Mac has a new install of o365, Outlook v2016. I set up my email (cox.net/imap); and it works great. The problem is importing my .PST from my current Windows PC; Outlook 2013. The .PST is approx 2gb. The import works fine; no errors, but when I restart and look in "On My Computer", there is nothing there; no inbox; folders; nothing. It DOES import Tasks (Categories, etc). Anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I understand that Microsoft's Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) is able to troubleshoot Outlook for MAC versions 2016 and 2011.

Is it possible to install and run SaRA on a MAC client? Is there a .dmg available for download?

Thanks in advance for the guidance. I've been unable to find an answer.

We have a mac in the shop that when you tunr it on you get the mac chime, then the apple logo, and then a progress bar. The progress bar move about halfway and then the screen goes white. We have tried online recovery, reset NVRAM and SMC, safe mode, and CTRL+R. None of these have gotten us anywhere. Just wanted to reach out and see if anyone had any other ideas. Client is a photographer and has tons of pictures on this mac. Was trying to keep from having to offload the pictures and reinstall.

I have multiple macs logging into an AD domain. This has been the case for 7 years. No problems for 7 years. Suddenly, I am having multiple Macs unable to log back in after their screensaver has kicked in, or their computer has gone to sleep. They are told they have an incorrect password. The only way for the user to log back in is to force the Mac to shut down, wait a few minutes, then boot back up. Once done they are able to login. Most users this has happened to were able to do this once or twice and the problem disappeared. One user has not been so lucky. I have been working on her system for 2 days now with no luck.

One common solution to the problem is to turn off the password requirement when waking the computer. However, in a work environment, this is very insecure. I have tried other solutions, including increasing the DSBindTimeout. Now I am at a loss.

What's the best way to update Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) from 10.6.8 to either El Capitan or Sierra or at least something newer than 10.6.8. We do not mind doing fresh install. We have other El Capitan Mac which we could use to create an installation image. Can we just install El Capitan and will it automatically activate and not ask for licence serial number? Will drivers still be available?

Regards,
Tom
