I am having this same problem, however I do not have a Calendars folder in my Library. I searched for a com.apple.iCal.plist file and nothing came up.

If your computer is a new enough Mac, if it has Messages.app installed, that should contain all your iMessages. If you have a PC, I believe there are some programs that can extract your messages from your iPhone backups.

Open the Photos app, go File -> Import, and navigate to the folder with the photos. If the photos can't be imported using the Import feature in Photos and are in an iPhoto library, you could first open the library with iPhoto, go File -> Export, and export the originals. They could then be imported using the Photos app.

Unfortunately, Time Machine doesn't support this feature and there are a couple of reasons why. Time Machine makes physical backups of all your files, not just links to them. If it backed up to iCloud Drive (which syncs to your Mac), it would duplicate 150GB on to your HDD. It would then try to back all of that up too (unless you exclude that location from ...

First of all, to remove any confusion, iCloud's My Photo Stream, and iCloud Photo Sharing are two different things, and will behave differently. iCloud Photo Sharing From the FAQ: How many photos and videos can be stored in a shared album?

You can try using the Network Link Conditioner (NLC) system preference panel from the Apple Developer site to limit your network connection speed. https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action… After you install NLC, open it and create a new profile.

I just found and fixed an issue that I had that may be related. Somehow in settings on my iPhone I had Notes set with a default account of gmail. I changed it to cloud and magically everything started synching again. I have no idea how gmail became the default account as I don't use it for notes, but that worked...

iCloud Photo Library doesn't support doing that. All your photos have to be on all your devices where you've enabled it and deleting a photo anywhere deletes it everywhere. Unless you have a huge library, it shouldn't be a big issue. My library has 11K photos and 300 videos but only takes a little over 2GB of space on my iPhone. The total space used for ...

Have you tried to set your (possible) iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch onto airplane mode, and then doing the change from the http://icloud.com with your log-in, deleting specific contacts, then waiting for a couple of minutes and bringing the devices back from airplane mode and then checking what the status is in them and on the iCloud?

Smart folders — including Faces — on the Mac are (for now) local only. Not only will Faces not sync with iPads or iPhones, they won't sync with other Macs either.

Yes. If on OS X, use Apple's Photos app and save the pictures locally. If on Windows, download iCloud for Windows.

I thought that Apple had solved the local storage problem and made it simpler, but they seem to have repeated some prior problems of iPhoto Libraries. First, it appears you can indeed delete all your new local Photo Library items. However, when you want to look at them in Photos on Mac again it will re-download them all again. Apple says ...

Yes - that's exactly it. The library stored in iCloud is the "truth" and whenever you opt in a device to the cloud, two things happen. It prepares to upload - trying to not have two exact duplicates get uploaded to the cloud. It downloads thumbnails for all cloud photos - trying to not have two exact duplicates in the final device version of the library. ...

There must be sufficient room on the device for the update to download & expand. That's usually about 800MB or so. Deleting the update directly downloaded to the device & instead running the process from iTunes can sometimes give you just enough to space to do it; otherwise you will need to delete additional apps or data - usually something like a ...

iCloud storage has no correlation to a Device's available space to allow installation of an update. To show how much space is free on the device: Settings > General > Usage > Under 'Storage' > Manage Storage From here you can see what is Used vs Available, and you can even see what apps are using the most. You can always update via iTunes ...

Per your second edit, it is indeed a special folder created by family sharing. The whole family can contribute to the family photo album. Now collecting and sharing family memories is easier and more fun. When Family Sharing is turned on, a shared album is set up automatically in the Photos app on all family members’ devices. Then everyone can ...

You'll have to create a new one. If you've already set the existing (wrong) account up on your devices, remove it from all of them (on one device, make sure that you select the option to keep contacts etc., on the others click delete so you don't end up with double or triple content later). Keep in mind that the account is set up in multiple places. iCloud ...

Take it back to the dealer. See if they have the contact details. If not, get your money back, they should have checked before even buying it from the previous owner. The entire email address is never exposed, so you won't be able to access it. Even if not stolen, if the original owner doesn't remove it from their iCloud account, there's no way to bypass ...

Tag each file with a subject name and they will be sorted in the tag section of the Finder sidebar, irrespective of the app they use. (I only use the tag colours to show them up)

I use a tag based filing system, so that I can group files from different applications into subjects. The tags all have subject names and colours are only used to show them up.

There is no way to import an Aperture/iPhoto library except start a new Photos library and have it convert from an existing Aperture/iPhoto library. I think the best solution would be to start a new Photos library based on your existing Aperture library. Attach your iPhone to the Mac and wait for it to appear in the sidebar in Photos, then import everything ...

Only one library can be the "system library", which in turn is used for iCloud Photo Library (if enabled), but you can have as many other libraries as you want.

There isn't an "ubiquity" you can simply disable IMO. I would exhaust other avenues of solving this problem. Random shutdowns are irritating, but the best thing I have is to train the user to: Get sysdiagnose each time it happens. (or right after the reboot / when the problem is noticed) Log the date and time of the error on a piece of paper Establish ...

I assume it's a little late for your phone call, but for anyone else with this problem you can force both the OS X and iOS Contacts apps to sync with different methods. OS X Close (and reopen?) the Contacts app. iOS (8) Touch Groups on the top left, then drag down until the spinner at the top fills up.

That sounds like you had "Find my iPad" enabled in iCloud. It's made to protect your iPad against theft (or at least make it potentially useless to thieves). You won't get around logging into your iCloud. If you also have it on a Mac you could check if your password is stored in the Keychain (located in Applications/Utilities). Else you'll have to reset the ...

If you enable iCloud Photo Library all your devices stay in sync. So deleting/adding a picture on one device will delete/add it on all others (and the Cloud) as well.

Just realized, it is on my side and my upload is saturated since I installed Photos - so it is not Apple's fault: If I am not mistaken, it should be done in about 12-15 days.

This doesn't answer the question, but moving gigabytes of data to any cloud service (and back) is going to take a while. An external drive will be much faster, and you can re-use it for the backup you don't have.

Yes - sharing the photo puts it in a cloud backed "truth" where that image is available for all participants of the album to download and modify their copy, but not to change the original. You'll want to share the edited version and then clean old ones until such time editing directly that shared image is implemented.

Well, for one iPhoto doesn't have iCloud Photo Library implemented into it. There has been a new update to OS X that adds a new photos app, update your Mac using the Mac App Store ad then also update your iPhone to iOS 8.3 ad enable iCloud Photo Library. Everything will be synced: Edits, deletes and additions.

No, sorry, but your our of luck. Unless your phone was jailbroken and you had an app that allowed for what your explaining, theres no way to can instal and app on your device remotely, not to mention that you WILL need setup when you install an app like that.

Sign out. Search for any free app. Select "Get" and "Install App". You should see screen, that you need to log in to download. Select "Create New Apple ID". You should see "None" option when selecting payment method. Activate Apple ID and you have created new Apple ID for your son. Then just sign out from son's Apple ID and log in to yours.

This is genuinely because of multiple iCloud accounts used on one PC. Just for the sake of experiment, try installing iCloud on a PC where no other iCloud have ever been installed. I am sure, it will sync with it, and it is certainly a cache problem. Secondly, regarding the My Photo Stream not showing up anything but you can still see 3 photos when you ...

I have an iPhone 5s. The way I eliminated email contacts in my contact list is as follows: Go to Settings, Mail/Contacts/Calendars, scroll to Contacts and tap Default Account. Mine had 2 checked--my iCloud and my email address. I unchecked my email address and left iCloud checked. That did the trick.

There are multiple absolute and rate limits on iCloud photos. See this article for details: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202299 Currently, if I had to guess, you hit one of the 24 hour limits and need do nothing but wait for the time to pass: Maximum combined number of photos and videos from all contributors per shared album, per hour: 1000 Maximum ...

I can invite anyone to my shared albums whether they have AppleID or not just by typing their SMS or email address into the invite field. I've seen the app freeze, so power off your iPhone and then try going back into Photos as soon as it restarts. If that doesn't work, post a screen shot of your attempt and I'll see if something else makes sense to try.

Yes. You can start Photos app and turn off iCloud backed storage. You can see that the Photos Library is not my System Photo Library Then you can import all the photos you want locally and observe how much space it takes. I'm using DaisyDisk, but Finder can show you folder size as well. I have a small system library that I'm using to test out the cloud ...
