I just wanted to point out, that you can map any key or key combination in OSX to any other key or key combination using Karabiner. In my case, I'm using the following configuration to send Insert to Windows through TeamViewer, for example when running NVDA screen reader software (which heavily relies on key combinations using Insert) to test websites for ...

AFAIK, you can't get the ownership properties of files on SMB/Samba shares on anything other than Windows. Mac OS / Linux implementations of Samba don't parse that info when reading the share, most probably because of the differences in how the extended attributes are stored between the OS's, and that the Share properties are determined by the hosting system ...

I had the exact same issue when setting up a new computer—frustrating. What's happening is that iTunes sees that the current songs on the iPhone are taking up a lot of space, but iTunes is unable to figure out that many of the songs that are already on the iPhone are the same ones that are in your iTunes. Instead of syncronizing it to make all the songs ...

I just bought three 8 GB thumb drives to use as OS X, Linux, and Windows 7 installers. I suppose you could split the thumb drive into two 8 GB partitions and create two installers. Whether or not both are visible on Macs and PCs is unknown. I suppose it will depend on the hardware. To create the OS X installer, you need only run the following from ...

The best way to attack this is to make a good backup (perhaps two - one to iTunes and another iCloud) and then restore the device. When you activate the phone, don't sign in to iCloud at all (or the app store) - just set it up as a new device. From there you can look at storage and then slowly add your Apple Accounts. When you sign in to iCloud - look at ...

Do you have the original install disks for Mac OS X? If so, there shouldn't be any issues with wiping the Mac partition completely off the hdd. However, if you don't have those disks, I would strongly recommend keeping the Mac OS X install and creating a new partition (shrinking the Mac partition) for the new OS. Mainly because if something goes wrong (or ...

Use iCloud. On your phone go to Settings > iCloud and enable Photos. It may take some time to sync, but they will. Then go to iCloud.com and log into your account from your PC. Then you can browse your iCloud files including your photos that you've sync'd from your phone.

Macs are able to read NTFS file systems (the kind used by Windows) but are not able to write to them by default. You should be able to transfer the data over as you would normally. If you want both read and write access from both a windows and a mac machine, consider using a more advanced file system like ExFAT. If your current External Hard Drive is ...

If your Mac OS partition is encrypted with FileVault 2, it will be unreadable when you are booted to Windows. At that point, the only thing malware could do to this partition would be to wipe or delete it.

The access to the OS X partition on Windows is managed through the HFS+ driver. If you uninstall it from Windows, the OS X partition will become inaccessible from Windows. It does virtually protect you from any kind of attack, unless a malware include itself the drivers (I hardly see that happening) or it simply deletes the whole partition. However, you ...

a Boot Camp partition could make the computer susceptible to malware that can somehow access the OS X partition.

Any booted operating system on any partition has full control of any connected devices. The ...
