Glad to hear it.....the only glitch I experienced with the new Watch OS 5.1.2 update (and the associated iOS update to 12.1.1) was my AirPods going flaky and losing sync between the iPhone X and the new Series 4 Apple Watch. Forgetting the AirPods o

Hi, and welcome to FineTunedMac. Sorry, but your "link" doesn't seem to point to what you think it does. (The "Image" tags don't work, so you've got to use the "Create a link to a webpage" tags.) But even using them I

Thanks U, I had that setting off as it drove me crazy in the paste. Turned it back on. Now, I notice, -- what this there before?.. That before just undoing something, the iphone ask if you want the undo? Which is good.

Jump to new posts Re: from HFS to APFS and back again by jchuzi @ 12/07/18 04:03 AM

I cloned my APFS volume to an external drive, and the external was MacOS Extended (Journaled). Assuming that this is the same as HFS (and I don't know that), it might be possible to clone back to convert the internal to HFS. Just a suggestion...

I just updated to macOS 10.14.2, and my battery situation has changed for the worse. It's showing a significantly shorter life than in 10.14.1 and is draining ridiculously quickly although Activity Monitor > Energy doesn't show anything unusual.
