Move your `~/Library/Mail' folder in the capsule. Please note that: the folder can contain subfolders with 'odd' names such as V3 or V4 and these contain your mail (hence my suggestion to move or copy the whole folder and not just the subfolders). moving the aforementioned folder will save all your mail, but you will have little usability -- that mail can ...

I use odrive. It's a great sync manager that supports a lot of cloud storage providers, like Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Onedrive, Amazon S3, FTP, etc. You can see the list of providers on the homepage. They offer sync clients for Mac and PC, which both support "unsyncing", where you can choose to just keep files in the cloud. It works really great and it's ...

The one I use is called ExpanDrive. It's expensive at about $50, but in addition to FTP, it also supports Amazon, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and many others.

I haven't tried it yet, but the folks behind CyberDuck have released Mountain Duck, it allows you to view remote resources as volumes on the desktop (i.e. integrates Azure, SFTP, S3, etc. with the Finder). https://mountainduck.io/

For my money, the gold standard file transfer program would be Transmit by Panic. Longstanding Mac developers, continued support and improvement of the product, good value for the price if you work with files professionally or have time constraints on your work. https://panic.com/transmit/

If you have two iOS devices, I would compare the Settings - iCloud - Storage - Manage Storage screens to ensure both agree. One device can get stale or cached data. If you don't have two, restart your device to check that it's updated. If so, you will then want to go to iCloud.com on a computer and verify the number there. The web app allows you to clean or ...

Cyberduck works just fine with many providers

My best suggestion is to check for apps like WhatsApp. It can backup data but will not show in iCloud. If that does not apply, I would call Apple Care and ask them to release the extra storage.

When you delete a file, the file is not actually deleted. The file will actually just be hidden and marked by the system as 'deleted'. When you download something from the internet par example, the files marked as 'deleted' will be overwritten by the downloaded file. On Mac it's possible to safe those files marked as 'deleted' before they are overwritten by ...

I found the answer with iMazing https://imazing.com . What I did was copy the entire iTunes backup folder from my USB drive to the iTunes backup folder in my machine. Then I ran the app and went to the app (app has to be installed) in the connected phone. Then I right clicked the app and select extract. At this point, I selected extract from current backup (...

You can use iCloud either to backup your iDevices' data and also as storage for your personal files, just like those saved in your HDDs disk. Where? As you said, instead of saving those files in your iCloud folder in your Mac, you can go to the iCloud website and login with your own Apple ID credentials. How? After you've logged in to your iCloud space, ...

Looks like I got it...I noticed my iTunes would say there was no updated version available, but the latest version to download (new) from the website was a higher version number. So I re-installed iTunes on my computer and it seemed to work! Yay!

Try booting in Recovery mode(Cmd +R) and see if it's recognised there. Also check if it's recognised on other computers.

iTunes should save all your data (including Whatsapp chats & images) in a backup. Besides that, if you've iCloud turned on for Whatsapp you should also be able to make or restore a backup at any time with iCloud. You can read more about it here: https://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/iphone/20888066

I do not think Apple is using a standard encryption, as the FBI demonstrated for us, its so far, uncrackable, it contains your used passwords, and other sensitive information, how are you planning on decrypting this data?

iOS 8.0 doesn't backup Health.app data to iCloud but iOS 9 does. You can save the information stored in your Health app by backing up your iOS device with iCloud. Your information gets encrypted as it goes between iCloud and your device, and while it's stored in iCloud. If you aren't using iCloud, you can back up your Health information by ...

Use Disk Utility to reformat the old drive. It will be much quicker than forcing the Finder to delete hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of files by throwing it in the trash. If you have other files on this old disk you want to keep on this drive, you can: copy them to another disk; reformat the old disk; copy them back to old disk or use ...

The panel is still there and hasn't moved. Select your iPhone in the toolbar. The latest backup times and locations are shown under Latest Backup. The version of iTunes is independent of the version of OS X. Image Capture has by no means replaced Photos and was part of OS X long before iPhoto (the predecessor to Photos.app).

If a file had "left" the drive and came back there is clearly no way to determine it was the same file, short of doing a scan of the file. For an in-place directory move, Time Machine apparently doesn't track unix "inode" numbers for saving copy time and space. There is probably no point 99% of the cases. You can demonstrate this by looking at the Unix "...

As long as you're on your Wi-Fi network, you should be able to do that, but if I were you I'd just buy a SATA-to-USB cable ($30 at Best Buy), install the SSD as usual, connect the HDD over USB, make a disk image of it with Disk Utility (in Recovery), and then install the image on the new drive. I did this when I upgraded my MacBook Pro to an SSD and haven't ...

The only option will be to wipe your iPad (restore it to factory settings). Apple talks about this on their support site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204306 You'll want to restore the phone, but not restore the backup.

In iTunes, choose Preferences. Next, choose the Devices tab. You'll be presented with a list of Device backups. Select the most recent backup for the device in question. Invoke the popup menu for that backup; three choices are available. Select Archive and the backup will be archived with date and timestamp. Now you have an archive that won't be overwritten ...

I've been asking myself this very question, and the answers on here certainly helped. However there's an aspect that's lacking which may be a new implementation "detail" that didn't exist when this question was answered. tmutil delete does indeed delete backups, but doesn't actually reclaim the space they took, at least not in any guaranteed way. I spent ...

Possible solution 1: Instead of following Apple's recommendation of copying the backup in the Finder, you might want to try to use Disk Utility to restore the disk to the new disk (if the new disk is completely empty). Possible solution 2: Follow these instructions to make sure that MAC Address and UUID match. I have successfully used this solution in a ...

I like to use BackupLoupe to locate the files I want to restore and not actually do the lifting. Once you have a Finder window - you could use Finder to show you the progress of the copy or even use a tool custom designed for syncing folders that can be paused / stopped / resumed. http://www.kaleidoscopeapp.com does file merges primarily but it's also ...

TM can only run one backup scheme. You can include the other external drive to backup to the existing TM backup drive or drives along with your Mac HD drive. Or you can back up all drives to the new 1TB drive (or drives if you want to add others). The 500 Gig drives are not big enough to backup all drives too. What you might consider is using CCC or ...

I thought I had this problem but in fact I just needed to let iTunes sync the iPhone after the backup had initially restored and I'd registered the new handset on the phone network. The phone appeared fine and I had many apps - but not all. After letting it sync they all returned :)

Here's a way to transfer photos to your computer (Windows 8 and above) Connect your iPhone to a trusted computer using the lightning cable. It is important that the computer is trusted. iPhones do not connect to the computer otherwise. The Photos app should automatically open. If it does not, you can open it using the Windows start menu or search bar. ...
