As login pages are changed by owner (ie. Ebay) and macOS is updated, 1Password login fields are no longer filled in by clicking on 1Password credentials, requiring a 1Password lookup copy and paste to fill web page fields. Now this happens almost always when trying to login to web pages.

 I could do better with a sorted name/password list I create.

How to regenerate (or otherwise fix) 1Password logins so that one click on 1Password will complete login?

As I have copied files on a USB 3.0 drive between two SSD based Macs (10.12 Sierra and 10.13 High Sierra), I have noted that there is a significant difference in performance depending on what file system I have chosen for the USB Drive.

I have read some performance comparisons, but they are either outdated or Windows-based and they appear inconsistent with my findings from the file copying.

Hence, could someone share some insights on what file system to use for the purpose of copying files most efficiently between SSD based Macs using a USB 3.0 Drive? (The performance of the drive will also factor in, of course, but in this question I am interested in the effects of the file system as they can potentially reduce the effective performance of a USB Drive.)

The file systems that I have available to choose from in my MacOS setup:

- ExFat
- MS-DOS (FAT)   [Disregarding the 4GB file size limit to focus on performance]
- Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

(I am disregarding the Encrypted and Case-sensitive alternatives of Mac OS Extended assuming that they will not perform better.)

What I am doing is
- copying to and from a USB 3.0 Drive (meaning that both writes and reads will factor in)
- approximately 300 GB of data consisting of tens of thousands of files with a file size of a few KB's up to hundreds of MB's. (There are some files in sizes of GB as well, but they are exceptions.)

If I left out something significant from the question, let me know and I am …

I have trouble getting my Creative T3150 to become visible on Bluetooth. I turned BT on with my iPhone and my MacBook, and had the Creative T3150 powered on. Yet, it is not visible on my my iPhone not my MacBook.

Is there a step I need to execute on the Creative T3150 to become visible?

Thanks.

I have a finished book in Word for Mac, with the page set to 8.5" X 5.5". But when I open the PDF, the file size become 8.5" X 11"

Can I use Adobe Acrobat Pro to change this?

Or is there an incorrect setting on Word?

Lastly, is it a setting in my Mac OS?

Thanks.

I recently imported a ton of photos to my Photos app in the Mac. There were about 12,000 photos. But when importing them, I've ended up with 36,000. ack! So I realized that this is what happened:

I used to have a Windows Vista computer. That's where these old pictures used to be stored. Now they're on a portable hard drive, but I wanted to add then to my Photos App so they will back up in the cloud.

Anyway,...

Here is what is see. If I have a picture name IM004244.JGP.  Then there is a folder named IM004244.JPG.files in this folder there are two pictures as "vcm_s_kf_m160_160x120.jpg"  and "vcm_s_kf_repr_640x480.jpg" these are identical pictures as IM004244 original (except different sizes).

I want to get rid of all that crap. Good grief, Vista sure knew how to mess things up.

This is what I'm seeing (see screenshot)

Messed up, isn't it?

This is what I've tried so far. I bought Gemini 2 to remove duplicates. The software just crashes after working a couple hours.

Also, I did a search on the SSD for all files called vcm_s_kf_m160_160x120.jpg  and vcm_s_kf_repr_640x480.jpg and deleted them. (Note: I did this directly on the SSD and not via the Photo app). I don't think that has helped. My Photos app is very unstable now. It's probably trying to retrieve the lost files from iCloud.

What should I do next?

I'm thinking the best would be to restore the Photos app from the Time Capsule and start. If that's what you recommend how…

I have trouble getting the drive to install properly with a IRISScan Pro 4 on Window 7. I am running Windows under Parallels on a Mac El Capitan. But, that should not matter.

What steps can I follow to first get the program to install correctly?

Thanks.

The user has to submit photos that show a visible timestamp
They have an iPhone 6
They would prefer some sort of Mac App that could take the creation time from the metadata and then place it on the JPEG.

OK to copy files from Time Machine connected to MacMini-A to MacMini-B?

MacMini-A has failed to start and I need some data files copied to MacMini-B.

I assume just swap TimeMachine drives and click-n-drag data files.

Experiencing a Mac Mini failure - > 1/2 hour to startup,

Booting MacMini from cold start with no attached peripherals with LAN (works OK)  after 45 minutes still no startup screen.

Seems I have a problem here which I propose to solve with another MacMini to which I will transfer contents from Time Machine (or Acronis True Image backup) and expect to start work again. I have a another networked MacMini which has most of the files from failed unit.

Can I reformat failed MacMini to see if software failure is the problem? If, so how?

Other ideas welcome!

We have several users using their personal MAC Laptops for work purposes.

I have never had a problem yet with viruses on a a MAC; but, that does not mean it will never happen.  My question is what are some good policies and procedures on how to protect MAC laptops and the company network from Viruses and Spyware (from infecting MAC OSX devices).

Regarding Windows devices I do the following:

- We have commercial AV program installed to help prevent and clean any malware.
- We have a secondary AV program to double-check if the initial virus scan program (Hitman Pro.)

I think that having a secondary anti-virus program, such as Hitman Pro would be the most cost effective solution.  I am getting this concern from a previous question, https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29067896/How-to-scan-an-Apple-Device-for-Viruses-HOAX-SPAM-alert.html

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I'm helping a friend who has a fairly new iMac, running El Capitan, and Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac. I sent up an IMAP account with his @sbcglobal.net e-mail (from AT&T), which is able to send and receive. However, it constantly prompts him to input his smtp password, and I have confirmed that the smtp settings and port number is correct. I have tried every possible AT&T server settings, and I check "Keep this password in the keychain". He typically inputs his password in the morning, and ignores all requests that appear after (usually several per day) and his email then sends normally. This issue is not preventing him from using his e-mail, but it is highly irritating.

I am convinced it is either a Microsoft application or operating system issue. Both Office & El Capitan are up to date.

Please advice to make this incredibly annoying error message exist no more!

Many thanks in advance,

Zovoth

I bought a replacement MacBook, and inserted the 500BG SSD from the old machine into the new one. I also have a few backup HDD's which I used with TimeMachine on the old machine.

Can I safely use those drives with the new PC? The new MacBook Pro is of the same vintage as the old one, and I moved all configurations to the new PC by way of swapping the old SSD into the new PC.

Thanks.

I transferred the Solid State Drive to a similar PC and loaded the system without incident, but iMessage does not work.

There seems to be a problem connecting to iCloud or Contacts, since if I create  New text message, typing into the To: field does not bring up Intellisense. By this I mean, it does not mater what I type, not contacts pop up. If I try and paste a phone number, it disappears.

What must I do to get it working again on this other machine?

Thanks.
