These are local snapshots. They should be on your external hard drive if it has been connected. Switched Time Machine off will remove them, but new backups will be created, unless you disable them. The following answer contains links which explain this very clearly http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/178718/19086

You can try unchecking "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible" on System Preferences > Energy Saver (source). There's also an app that says it will give more detailed control called (appropriately) "Keep Drive Spinning" here is a link to the developer site, the app sends you to macupdate for the download –be careful with bundled software on the ...

I have done this before and all I had to do was connect the HDD to the AirportExtreme and point Time Machine to the new location. I would recommend copying the backups from the drive to another drive if you can before doing so, there are some instances where Time Machine will reject the backups and then you will need to format the drive.

Use camera sync. The only problem I found is you have to manually open the app and then it backups your pic to the specified ftp server.

Another option if both of the machines are in the same network. You can use netcat on both machines. Remember though, do not use this anywhere else where security is a concern as netcat is fast because it does not have any security layer. You can install window's netcat here: http://joncraton.org/blog/46/netcat-for-windows/ and on Mac you can use brew to ...

Honestly, if something fast like USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt are available to you, get yourself a small 64GB SSD and a USB 3.0 enclosure, or this (expensive, but a very good long-term investment if you have Thunderbolt. It's actually just a Thunderbolt to SATA adapter, with a fancy name. There are other options, this is just the only one I'm familiar with. ), and ...

I can speak from experience - I've got a 32GB USB drive, 8GB of which are a Yosemite installer and 24GB of which are normal storage. It works perfectly!

I personally had this same message. I turned off iCloud backups, then turned it back on. Settings > iCloud > Backup. While it did as for my password the firs time, it has not asked since. If that dons't work, I suggest to again, turn off iCloud backup, delete the backup, then turn it back on. Settings > iCloud > Backup, turn off Settings > iCloud > ...

Time Machine does not allow to provide a name for a backup. You can name the drive when directly attached, but not the backups within. I want to name my backups so I might not flash something else that I don't want. Not entirely sure what you mean by that, but if you meant backing up items already backed up, then you will need to understand that ...

I had this same problem and it seems that the drive may have been underpowered. I may be wrong, but I got a powered USB hub and a new surge protector and everything worked out.

Restart, hold down Command + R while booting to get to the restore screen. You can pick your backup from there. From support site

An iTunes backup includes text messages. See this Apple page for what is included. Notice that to restore everything, including passwords, you need to encrypt the iTunes backup with a password.

Try plugging in your idevice and open itunes. There should be the device name up at the top bar of the screen. Click that and after that you should see your devices specs. Click the backup now button and continue. this will back up all of your apps, settings, calendar, so you can transfer it to another idevice.

You should be able to look at your calendar events through iCloud at icloud.com Once you login with your Apple ID click on Calendar and check to make sure all of your events are there.

iTunes on your PC can make a backup of your device quite easily - especially if you have the two devices paired before the fall. If you haven't paired it, you'll need to have at least the digitizer working to tap to trust the computer once. Once that's done (and iTunes will prompt you), you can use the PC to back up the entire phone and/or choose to ...

Yes. So long as you keep the structure intact you can move it elsewhere for safe keeping. You could also trim it to only the most recent backup if you wished. If your backups are encrypted, the only way to identify is by the date of each folder, otherwise the date should be in each folder title.

Troubleshooting this is fairly straightforward to start. When it hangs, open up Applications/Utilities and launch terminal. Type: sudo tmdiagnose That will gather many logs and statistics and allow you to have a complete picture of what Time Machine was stuck on. After collecting three such instances (reboot the Mac after the script ends), you can ...

There are three ways to handle corrupted Time Machine backup drives: (easiest) Forget about the backup. It's a backup - you are not losing anything. Just erase it and start again. Copy the final backup (or just the parts that are really important) to other media. This can be done in the Finder, and it requires about the same space as what is currently on ...

Copying the entire drive is a really bad idea for several reasons. Copying it to the cloud is also a bad idea. Buying a new TB or larger drive is far cheaper, faster, and easier and would let you just start backing up and put the "corrupt" backup on the shelf until you're sure you don't need to recover any files from it. Due to the hard links that are ...

Logic board works but no display, in other words the phone works but there is no way for you to see whats going on on it. My best suggestion its to take this phone to repair to a local phone repair shop. that way you get the same phone back and they don't need to reset the phone for any reason, unless you consent. The key here is not to loose that logic ...

As far as I'm aware, entering the pass code is a security feature when you backup for the first time to a different iTunes/computer. You can't get around it, however its possible that Apple will be able to repair the screen without wiping the phone. Maybe even mention you haven't backed up the phone when you take it to get repaired and see if they can do ...

Personally I did the same thing. No, Cloning and restoring the clone to the fusion drive will not "Destroy" the fusion drive.

I've never tried this, so it's a theory only - Copy the backup to a sparse bundle disk image Launch Disk Utility. From the Toolbar, select 'New Image' In the Create dialog, set size to be sufficient to contain the entire backup you wish to create [it will start smaller & grow to that maximum size as you fill it.] Format - Mac Extended (Journalled) ...

If your drive is corrupted in any way you probably don't want to use it for backup purposes any more, unless the data is not of great value to you. Apple does not allow an easy transfer from drive to drive regarding backups. I think this is due to the way TimeMachine works (As stated in this apple discussion thread) Now how to do it anyways ? I would ...

It seems that the location can only be set when compiling macports from source (using the --prefix option). Rather than going down that route, I copied my old macports directory from the backup location to /opt, I then re-ran the current macports installer, which overwrites the "darwin 13" binaries and updates the database file. Following this I was able to ...

Both I and my housemate ran into this problem on separate iMacs. It first cropped up around the time we upgraded to Mavericks. After battling it for weeks I can confirm that (a) messing with your preference files won't fix it and (b) starting over with a new Time Machine backup disk and clean preference files won't fix it. Time Machine may behave itself for ...

It should work, but if you use SuperDuper! a workaround is necessary: I backed up my main system volume (hereinafter referred to as "System") to the unencrypted! backup volume (hereinafter referred to as "SystemBackup"). After rebooting to SystemBackup i tried to encrypt the volume SystemBackup, which wasn't successful, because the Recovery HD on the backup ...

When you encrypt a disk with filevault 2, your mac will start up from the recovery disk to load your OS. At the login screen you enter your password to decrypt the disk. It means that it will take some more time to log you in. I think it will work as log as you have a recovery partition. But if you do not really need filevault on the external drive, i ...

In my opinion this should work. To play safe: If you are able to create a bootable USB stick with a full blown OS installation, try it. :) The only thing I am currently thinking about is, when you started from your harddisk and encrypt an external drive, the keys for the drive (if it is bootable) need to be on the drive you are encrypting. Otherwise on boot ...

In a nutshell: No, you can't. A backup is not a synchronisation solution so there is always a 1:1 relationship between your main drive(s) and your backup. You can use Time Machine to backup multiple computers to the same network drive, but the backups will always end up as separate bundles. To transfer applications/data from one Mac to another once, have a ...

Apple does not use the term “hibernate”, so I assume you mean “sleep”. Macs that support Power Nap can make Time Machine backups while they’re in sleep. This includes the late 2010 MacBook Air. Apple offers a support article subtitled “Learn about Power Nap and which Macs can use it” which says: About Power Nap While sleeping, Power Nap allows ...

And there are backup viewers, like iphonebackupviewer (haven't used) ...google for same, download trials and see what you like. But I don't see clipboard mentioned, and haven't seen it when I've viewed backups in the past.

Looks like you have a portable Mac rather than a Mac Pro and Time Machine turned on. What you are seeing here are local snapshots. From https://support.apple.com/kb/PH14329 : To stop saving local snapshots, open Time Machine preferences and slide the switch to Off. Snapshots resume when you turn Time Machine back on.

Software like PhoneView is able to extract information from backup files. There might be free alternatives, PhoneView is just the one I am familiar with.

An encrypted disk image is not a FileVault volume, those are two different things. It sounds like you might have the password for the encrypted disk image in your login keychain. CCC isn't "circumventing" anything... And no, the diskutil bug in Yosemite is not related to this behavior.

Check if your password is longer than 15 characters, if it is just type the first 15.
