Comment on Backup Month: A Look At Time Machine, Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! by MaX http://blog.macsales.com/29785-backup-month-a-look-at-time-machine-carbon-copy-cloner-superduper/comment-page-1#comment-95236 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:46:16 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=29785#comment-95236 A good backup strategy is to make:

- A monthly backup with Apple Time Machine in a large disk (may take hours).

- Also a daily backup only of selected folders (personal data like Desktop folder and your folder data inside “/Users/~/Documents”) excluding data previously copied by Time machine and deleting from the destination any item no present in the source (mirror backup). Should take two or three minutes and can be done on fast but small SSD devices like SD cards (SDXC).

The daily backup strategy can be performed with applications like:

Tri-BACKUP

Synchronize! Pro X

ChronoSync

FoldersSynchronizer

Comment on CONFIRMED! OWC supports 8.0GB memory in Mac mini 3,1 machines by OWC Dyllon http://blog.macsales.com/2634-confirmed-owc-supports-8-0gb-memory-in-mac-mini-31-machines-2/comment-page-1#comment-95235 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:45:58 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=2634#comment-95235 Hello David,

Adding 8GBs of RAM will help your computer run much smoother and at greater speeds. If you are experiencing the “pinwheel” or “beachball” effect when opening files or applications, the RAM will help speed this up.

If you are experiencing slow speeds when saving files or staring up your computer, I would recommend an OWC Mercury Electra 3G SSD.

Comment on Apple Appears to Use Its Own SSD, Controller in New 12” MacBook by MaX http://blog.macsales.com/29981-apple-appears-to-use-first-in-house-ssd-controller-in-new-12-macbook/comment-page-1#comment-95234 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:36:11 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=29981#comment-95234 Not necessarily. I mean, manufacturers like LaCie have hidden the real manufacturer of the disk mechanism inside for years. Disk Utility reports LaCie, but LaCie is not a manufacturer of mechanisms. Now os part of Seagate, but it was the same before such purchase.

Only the MacBook and MacBook Pro 13″ (7,1) would be compatible with 16GBs of RAM.

My 2011 MBP only has one Mdp/thunderbolt port
and no USB 3 … Now with the OWC TB Dock all that has changed. Thunder bolt chain ends with a Apollo Twin and I have a 24″ monitor plugged in thru HDMI port and a OWC USB 3 Express case with a 128GB SSD. Also I have Seagate Desktop Backup ThunderBolt Drive as well in the chain. and a place to plug my old FW drives in plus Network and can charge my iphone and ipad … Just love the way it just works. well worth the money even though I’m from Canada and I had to deal with our tiny dollar plus big shipping and Tax .. still Lovin’ it. cheers

Of course it doesn’t have a graphics card in it.

Comment on Backup Month: A Look At Time Machine, Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! by Kevin Michelin http://blog.macsales.com/29785-backup-month-a-look-at-time-machine-carbon-copy-cloner-superduper/comment-page-1#comment-95228 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:39:03 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=29785#comment-95228 I think it’s a shame that ChronoSync isn’t also reviewed and compared. ChronoSync can synchronize, backup, and mirror files locally or remotely. It’s an all-in-one tool that is extremely powerful.
