Try the following steps: Shut down the computer and reboot it while pressing Alt/Option. In the boot picker choose your recovery partition (name can vary, depending on your language settings). In the recovery partition launch disc utility and perform the steps you tried already.

HazeOver works very well for me (in 10.10.5 as of this writing), and plays well with f.lux. HazeOver can be changed (quickly) to highlight the active window and dim everything else (even pretty much hide it entirely, for "focus" or "theater" mode), or to highlight all windows of the frontmost app, and dim the rest just a little, which I use a lot when ...

I had this icon appear after log in today. I do not have any virtual machines. Another user has VMWare Fusion installed. Here's how I solved it without messing with the installation. I used part of YH Wu's answer to kill it. If you don't understand the commands, use Wee Malcky's answer. (See below for these two methods.) Remove it from your Login Items ...

It is likely that the file system in use on your Ubuntu server does not support all of the things that HFS+ does meaning that somethings just can't live on a different file system, applications and other types of package files spring to mind. However a disk image file is designed to be a self contained archive that can transit all sorts of file systems. You ...

In contrary to older version Parallels 11 creates a bootable installer hdd with the help of Install OS X El Capitan.app. Older versions created an iso/dmg/img file with the same purpose. After booting to the pre-installation boot environment in the OS X image file.hdd, OS X will be installed to the main drive inside the VM pvm package. After installing OS X ...

You are not seeing the drive because has no more partition on it. What you have done is written every sector, including the super important ones like the partition table, with random numbers. When you boot USB (I am assuming you are booting an OS X installer off of USB), you need to launch Disk Utility. It will be under the "Tools" menu. Partition your ...

Rzdoom answered your question quite well; more often than not, you're not using antivirus software for viruses on the Mac insomuch as for viruses for Windows (as Macs can sometimes carry them and spread them to Windows workstations, although this is more common in office environments than home use). You're more likely to encounter trojans and adware/malware ...

There are a few ways to keep your mac secured. Use a firewall like Little Snitch. It monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic. You'll get asked if you approve or deny a connection. Don't download stuff like warez, torrents or any other form of illegal downloads. I know this sounds to obvious but always double check where your file is coming from. When ...

I don't use a virus scanner on my Macs and never have, but then I have been supporting Macs since 1990 and have a real good idea what to do and what not to do to avoid malware. That said I have still had a couple of close shaves in the past few years. Close shaves that anyone without intimate knowledge of the platform (EG someone who works on Macs for a ...

I made a configuration which is a sort of Airplane mode for MacOS X, and am regurlaly using since more than 10 years with no problem and a lot of advantages (when under attack, when troubleshooting a process with network problems...). See: Airplane mode for MacOS X

why not just remove the Ethernet cable and only connect via WiFi which is so easy, just turn Airport off when you don't want to be connected from the menu bar. Sorted

Damnit. I searched for a while but without using the keywords "airplane mode osx" which only came to me when I edited my question here. Research using these words led to a very useful answer available here : http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20130325002258846 If you go to the Network pane of System Preferences, you'll see a Location popup ...

I am wondering if you take the actual mail files out of your ~/Library folder (drop them on the desktop) and then re-create your mail account(s), username, passwords, servers and the like you should then be able to import those files sitting on your desktop into the new accounts you just recreated. It certainly won't answer the question what happened but ...

Check that the account is set to the Home folder you think it ought to be... System Prefs > Users & Groups > [unlock] > Right click your account & select Advanced... Make sure the Home directory is as it should be. Don't change anything else. Add a comment if that doesn't fix it.

If your notes are really stored in your email account, you should be able to reconnect to the same email account over IMAP to gain access to your notes again. Do not configure the email account as POP3 for example. However, if you really have a new MacBook, it is probably running El Capitan. With El Capitan notes are no longer stored on IMAP email accounts ...

Data Rescue from ProSoft* works, it has a trial and no-cost limited-recovery options. You won't get the whole volume recovered by freeware. It is unlikely you will get everything back, and if you are still using that drive your recovery percent goes down every hour as files get overwritten. Also unlikely you will get filenames back, just a great big folder ...

No, because Time Machine works at the filesystem level of the whole disk, not just the files owned by any given user. In other words, Time Machine backs up the entire Macintosh HD, sans exclusions, and doesn't know or care about individual users from this perspective.

Deleting apps from Launchpad and Applications folder are similar but for an extra step. When you delete from Launchpad, MacOS removes it completely from your system. From Finder(Applications folder), you move it to Trash and have to empty the trash to completely delete the app and generate space out of it. Those apps which cannot be deleted from LaunchPad ...

I think there is something going on with El Capitan and a most recent update... My ethernet speeds (same network as an old Mac Mini) are 50x more (very seriously) than my iMac 5k. I get about 70Mb/s on the old Mac Mini and only about 1.5-2Mb/s on the iMac. I checked the network traffic, I checked the processing in the background ... nothing. That's ...

I am also having Wi-Fi issues (for months) with MBP 2014 and I found a temporary solution to the problem. I have tracked down the problem to be or kernel or driver implementation bug with 802.11n (the important info here is the "n"). I have an Airport Express and inside the configuration for Wireless (Radio Mode) you can choose for 802.11n with 802.11b/g ...

I am pretty sure none of these approaches actually works, at least in El Capitan. The best approach I have found is to keep the special folders in your home directory and sidebar, and symlink out the subfolders. So, e.g., I have a real Music folder in ~/, but inside that is a symlink to /Volumes/[external]/Music/iTunes/. That gets the 100Gb of iTunes content ...

Thank you for responding to my question. You have the right "insignia" adaptor above. how the back of my 2015 Mac Mini does not look anything like the picture posted above. Where the SDXC card slot is shown on the above picture, my Mac Mini has the power cord. Once again, I can not find a slot that the insignia adaptor will slide into.

The Mac mini, since Mid 2011, has one Secure Digital (SDXC) card slot. Prior to that, the Mid 2010 models have one Secure Digital (SD) card slot and prior to 2010 the Mac mini has no card slot. Back side of Mac mini (Late 2014): If the flash memory card is a micro card, then to use the SD/SDXC card slot, you need an SD card Adapter as shown in the ...

If applications can still send sound to your speakers but the system does not, it sounds like your default output device is something other than your speakers.

I have a similar scenario in that I need to access a Linux system on my LAN from my MacBook Pro, so I use the free version of NoMachine. It's available for Windows, Linux and OS X. You first have to hook up a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to get NoMachine installed and configured on the Mac and then connect at least once from the Windows system. You could ...

Initial versions of Yosemite used some new Wifi code that resulted in some serious issues for some users. If you are suing Wifi for Airdrop (which is likely), these Yosemite-induced wifi issues could have caused the slow Airdrop speeds you experienced. Later version of Yosemite (10.10.3 and later, I believe), fixed the Wifi issue (for most users). And El ...

Just to complete the answers, many other files actually sit in the icloud drive but hidden. That is on top of the directory mention mentioned for some files as stated above.

It seems that modifier keys like cmd, ctrl, option, shift cannot be used alone and have to be combined with other keys as shortcuts. Alternatively you may also try using option + space as the shortcut to toggle input sources.

To illuminate and expand on Eirik's answer a bit: The instructions he's provided you are essentially the same as you would use in the terminal, but with a few details hidden.

Yes, FileVault 2 encrypts the entire drive, including free space and trash.

In my case, I had already disabled FileVault on my primary partition to allow Boot Camp Assistant to resize the primary partition to accommodate a BOOTCAMP partition, but after manually deleting the partition, Disk Utility couldn't (wouldn't?) resize the primary to max while it was mounted to filesystem root.

Even if your OS X is dammaged and the recovery partition is missing, by using the Cmd+R when you power on your Mac, if it's connected to Internet (with Ethernet), it will download the recovery partition by itself.

It makes it the main boot disk so it will continue to boot from that disk. It's equivalent to the Startup Disk preference pane in System Preferences, only done in a different place so you don't have to boot into OS X.
