  • Great presentation. I’m not technical enough to understand all the details, but there was enough to help me, as a normal consumer and user of Macs, learn about APFS.
    I have a 2TB Fusion storage system in my iMac. I’m still thinking that with Mojave’s upgrade that I’ve loaded, I have gained the advantage of APFS in my SSD part of Fusion, but in the HDD part things are slower than they were in with High Sierra. Am I understanding this correctly? If so, I wonder why Apple would ever bother invoking this on a Fusion Drive system like mine. Pity the poor folks who only have an HDD on an older machine.
    Anybody out there can help me understand this with a Fusion drive?




  • … but I got the gist of it. Fantastic presentation!




  • The DriveSavers chap’s audio couldn’t be heard. Can you fix it?
