Check the console, in my case it showed the following: 23/05/2015 09:43:16.689 icbaccountsd[16967]: SOSCCThisDeviceIsInCircle SOSCCThisDeviceIsInCircle!! 329 I had Google Chrome open with Google+ running and it appears there's something polling related to adding people to circles. Quitting Chrome fixed it. I suspect restarting will fix it only for a ...

This is probably sorted out by now, but for future readers: do shell script "rm /private/var/folders/" error that says: error "rm: /private/var/folders/ : is a directory" You need rm -r to remove a directory and it's contents. However, I would suggest that if you don't already know that detail, then perhaps destructive shell commands are not for ...

It's a simple way. You can use the getconf DARWIN_USER_CACHE_DIR command to get the per-user temporary files and caches directory. and remove it. edit the '/etc/profile' file, add the following codes in it(not test yet): userTempDir=`/usr/bin/getconf DARWIN_USER_CACHE_DIR` rm -fr $userTempDir*

I have two iCloud accounts on my Mac (and in fact, most of my selected iOS devices) because of the way Apple IDs work. One of them iCloud accounts is used for iCloud syncing, etc and the email address attached to it is not of an Apple-owned domain (e.g. @icloud.com, @me.com). The second iCloud account is most likely your iCloud email account.

I came here while trying to solve the same problem (I think) and after like 45 minutes of messing around to no avail (including trying to delete all program data and return to factory settings), grgarside's answer put me on the right track. To remove my unwanted iCloud duplicate account, I first did as grgarside suggested, and deleted the folders in ...

The trick is to set both to the same password, recovery email & rescue questions. End of confusion. This is especially true for those who have had their iTunes/mac.com/me.com identities from long before both could be used for the same things (like me;) Drove me nuts trying to remember which was which until I set them up the same. BTW, you can't ...

The main issue you might have is if you have purchased/downloaded apps, music or any content with that apple ID. You won't be able to update them or you will need to re-download them or purchase them again with the other ID in order to continue having updates. The same applies with synced content via iCloud such as contacts, iCal, etc. You just need to be ...
