I eventually updated and checked myself, and the answer to my question yes: even if you don't update to iCloud Drive, iCal keeps working and syncs on your devices connected to the old iCloud.

i just solved the problem. you just have to erase all history from safari, under history options tab, at the bottom is the option to erase all. hope this solves your problem too.

You do not have to just wait, you can see what is it doing. From the Mac App Store, click on the “Purchases” tab to see the active list Locate the app(s) you are downloading that you want to check This will show you the download progress bar, the total downloaded out of the total download size, and an estimation of time remaining until the app has ...

Cancel the download if it is showing up in your Purchases tab. Then open Finder and go to Application and make sure that OS X Yosemite Install is not there, if it is, drag it to the trash to delete it. Restart your computer and instead of downloading it from Purchases navigate to it in the App Store and download it from there. If THAT fails. Call Apple and ...

Apple's specs for the Mid 2010 17" MacBook Pro state the maximum is 8GB. OWC maintains a list of Macs that can accept more RAM than Apple's official numbers. Unfortunately the Mid 2010 MBP is not on that list. (Do not confuse it with the Mid 2010 13" MacBook.)

According to Apple tech specs, you can't upgrade to 16GB. 4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1066MHz DDR3 memory; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 8GB MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2010) - Technical Specifications

Per Apple's iTunes 12.0.1 support article, OS X v10.7.5 (last version of Lion) is the minimum requirement for iTunes 12, which in turn is required to sync a device that is running iOS 8. Based on this, it can be done. Not sure if I'd want to (performance may be horrendous in iTunes on hardware that is closing in on a decade old, and that wasn't particularly ...

Yes, You'll be able to upgrade your iPad if your desktop is running OS X Lion. iPad 2 supports iOS 8. All you need to do is to run iTunes 12 to upgrade, which can be downloaded from the Apple website.

As recommended by 0942v8653, Command+L will show you the log and give you a better idea what is going on. In my case, the delay was due to copying of TexLive that had an enormous number of files.

No, your MacBook model cannot be upgraded to a version later than Mac OS X 10.6.8 because of restrictions imposed by Apple. It is highly likely that even if you could install a later version, your system would run unstable and/or slow. Regarding upgrading your hardware, yes, it's possible, but I'd say you'll have a hard time finding parts (other than RAM, ...

I attempted to upgrade my late 2010 MacBook air with an SSD from OWC. The first one worked for 3-4 hours and then the system wouldn't recognize it. I RMA'd it. The system wouldn't even recognize the replacement. The original SSD continues to work fine.

No, it won't - Since at least Snow Leopard, the upgrade is just done over the top of the original install. The core of the system doesn't change much these days, it's more about adding features/apps. I'd recommend backing your work up anyway (even if you don't upgrade!) and if you have an urgent deadline, upgrade afterwards... base the time on the ...

I had Yosemite running on my MacBook (13" mid-2010) with 2 Gb, but it is unworkably slow. Minimal apps including email and safari along with the OS will eat 2.7 Gb. Everything is frustratingly slow, much more so than under Mavericks, which was ok but not great. Just now I increased the ram to 4 Gb (the most for this machine) and everything is smooth and ...

If on top of your Mac's hard drive, you are also backuping an external USB drive, you may want to check this thread: https://discussions.apple.com/message/27031297

I always recommend an SSD as an upgrade to revitalize just about any system. You will notice a performance increase with an SSD, though it will be mostly load times (we're talking a night and day difference here). You aren't going to increase your frame rate. Sure, it's true that your system doesn't have many more years (months) left in it, but if you buy a ...

For MacPorts I can say that the only problem was to re-install MacPorts from source. Ports are running fine and I have a lot. Now the package installer are avaiable: https://www.macports.org/install.php https://distfiles.macports.org/MacPorts/MacPorts-2.3.2-10.10-Yosemite.pkg

If you have a lot of stuff installed in /usr/local, the upgrade will be extremely slow. It's faster to move it away before upgrading and move it back when the upgrade is done -- see here for full details.

IMO it is not worth if you do the math. You would come by for a short while with SSD + RAM, but soon to find out you do not have enough computing power. You would need to upgrade the GPU + CPU + RAM + SSD to bring it up to snuff to last you another 3-5 years. So what ever money you spend, it will not bring you up to today's standard and maybe only improve ...

More RAM will always give you a nice little performance boost but the real power comes down to what processor you have.

From your Safari crashdump, I found this for you that might help. Clear the local DNS cache in OSX 10.10 Yosemite Terminal -> Using this code: dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder Let me know if it helped since I do not have your problem to verify.

I did what @Phong is mentioning is his answer but my keyboard shortcuts didn't back. To activate iCloud Drive go to > Settings > General > iCloud > Turn iCloud Drive from No to Yes.

A 2009 machine is certainly able to run the latest software - it looks like yours is an iMac9,1 : http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-2-duo-2.66-20-inch-aluminum-early-2009-specs.html Memory for that machine maxes out at 8GB, which runs about $100. Everything would be better with more memory. ...

Our school had to upgrade a slew of older, Mavericks-compatible Macs to 4GB RAM last year for them to run acceptably once we upgraded. All new Macs we've purchased in recent years come with 4GB RAM minimum, anyway, if that tells you anything. The Mavericks specifications (there is no such info available for Yosemite) indicate a minimum of 2GB, to cover some ...

I have a 2008 MacBook and I am running Yosemite and it can be very slow at times although I am putting in much more intensive use into it. I am doing computer programming and constantly running more than 5 apps at once. For basic web browsing, listening to music, and using command line you should be just fine. I'm warning you that every once in a while there ...

A friend of mine recently upgraded his MacBook5,1 (2009 core 2 duo) with 2GB to Mavericks. It wasn't the most pleasant thing, but it actually didn't work out too bad for him and he even thinks there was a slight performance increase (I'm assuming due to the memory compression stuff being a touch faster than swap). I'm assuming that Yosemite isn't going to be ...

You pretty much answered your own question, "...crashing after memory upgrade." Remove the DIMMs one at a time until the crashing stops, then try just what you think is the bad DIMM and see if it still crashes. It is possible that there is a bad DIMM slot unless they were all full with smaller DIMMs previously but the safe money here is one (or more) of ...

The answer is: OS X did not upgrade my disks to Fusion Drive (or CoreStorage). [miha:~]diskutil cs list No CoreStorage logical volume groups found Probably because of the unconvetional layout. Or perhaps some other unknown reason.

Yes, it is still possible to download Mavericks: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6268-mac-os-x-mavericks.html That is a upgrade from Mavericks 10.9.4 to 10.9.5 (not a full version of Mavericks which is a 5.3 Gig file.) But maybe the software not working on Yosemite may neither works on Mavericks.

Nevermind, got it. App Store -> Purchases -> Press Option and you will see cancel.

My MAS application is still broken and there are glitches everywhere. Looks like FUBAR BUNDY! I recommend a clean install. Backup any additional files which aren't already in your SuperDuper! image. Probably it's faster to just backup/copy your or all user folder(s) to an external drive. Please check your hardware with your original system DVD (Apple ...
