Wise people always have a known good backup or clone before upgrading. I seldom remember to do that so I guess that tells you how much credence to put in my advice. I suggested the Recovery Drive as that would eliminate any problem emanating from you

Don’t you hate it when that happens. I am a public beta tester and I have any number of times encountered an error in a beta that after thorough testing and analysis, I report to Apple. Then come in the next morning and cannot replicate the error.

I was not as precise as I should have been. When I said, "is that device and your iPhone both signed into your Apple ID?" I should have said "is that device and your iPhone registered to the same Apple ID?" There is an increasingl
Joe, thanks, I think I'd have to fly you in, and pay you top dollar of course, to figure this one out. So I'll probably just live with this one!

I've got no idea what to make of that; if, as it sounds, it's a brand new situation, maybe you ought to "Report a Problem" from CCC's Help menu. Did CCC insert itself into your FDA pane, or did you select it? As I said, I haven't got CCC

12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson. I think everyone on Earth should read it and watch some of the YouTube videos where he is interviewed by the press. I for one would like to see Edward Snowden tried to treason.

I believe I posted a (long?) while back that iTunes wasn't recognizing my iPhone, but if I did, I can't locate the post, so I'm posting this. Up until now, the only way I could correct the issue was by resetting the iPhone, but it was a giant PIA,

Thanks for the link; that thread may have pointed me in the right direction. Relaunching Finder repeatedly isn't an option, nor am I about to get involved with chmod without knowing precisely what I'm doing, but the talk about permissions inspired m
