comment How does Time Machine backup the snapshots made by Parallels 11
That's great additional information. Now the only thing left unclear for me, is should the need arise, and I have to restore to the last good snapshot, is it simply a matter of restoring the .PVM from the time machine backup, and then selecting the appropriate snapshot from Parelles Manage Snapshots?

comment How does Time Machine backup the snapshots made by Parallels 11
after some more STFW (thanks for those kinds words btw) I found that the .pvm file is in fact not a single file as Finder would have you believe. Now it all makes sense.

comment How does Time Machine backup the snapshots made by Parallels 11
So that's a good start to the answer. But the question remains "what does Optimize for Time Machine" really mean? And if it is what I guess it is, that Time Machine only backs up the snapshots then great --- where are those so that I can pick a snapshot to restore.

Really this should be the accepted answer, since it does exactly what the OP is looking for. (and what I was looking for too : )

I've added Yosemite to the text of my question, although I want to point out that the original post was tagged as a yosemite question.

No I'm referring specifically to the photos app that replaces iPhoto on Yosemite

comment how to quickly reboot from OSX to Windows and back
@noelicus Yes, right click the bootcamp icon and pick Reboot in OS X. It may be interesting to know that since this original post I have moved away from bootcamp to parallels (which on a late 2013 iMac (32GB ram, 3TB fusion etc...) it's really a much better environment. Now just a two finger swipe back and forth between the two Operating systems.

comment How to script “add to iTunes Library”
OK, I'm liking this idea. I didn't know about the "Add to iTunes automatically" folder. Would there be a way to present this folder as a link in the DMG such that the user could drag and drop the files in the DMG to that folder easily. For example, many software products that ship as a DMG have a link to the Applications folder, and the user just drags the package icon to the link and they're done.

Apparently not after updating to iTunes 10.4, but thanks.

comment How to navigate iTunes with the Apple IR Remote
Perhaps I'm mistaken, but Plex looks like an ITunes alternative, which is not what I'm looking for. I have all my media already tucked away in the iTunes Library, which FrontRow was aware of.

comment Camtasia, Screenflow, or “Other?”
Odd that the Camtasia-Mac version is $99 and the Windows version is $299. I wonder what you get for the extra $200.

comment How do I get the latest drivers for boot camp and windows 7
Then why all the fuss about making sure you're got the lastest BootCamp 3.1 before attempting to install Windows 7?
