“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Thanks. So "nothing really happened" is OK because nothing really needs to happen? Something must have happened.

And what, exactly did "erase" do when it (almost instantly) completed (with an error)? I've added some detail to the original question to clarify (I hope) what I'm looking for.

comment Trying to securely erase hard drive, but Security Options not available (Mavericks)
I've had a similar experience. I want to securely erase a FV-encrypted SSD, but my attempt failed quickly with an error (the option to do so was enabled), but the drive seemed to have been "erased" in some form anyway and I proceeded to reinstall OSX. I don't know where I am now though. Is this the correct procedure? Have I performed the "official" ("secure") erase procedure for a FV-encrypted SSD after all (error message and nearly instant completion notwithstanding)?

So, in short, the drive was FV encrypted and I've not stored or saved the key anywhere, I should be safe. And if I, on giving the machine to a family member, set up FV fresh for them, I should be very safe. Correct?

"Hasty refusal" is good: that's exactly the right description.

comment Differences migrating using Target Mode vs Migration Assistant on source machine?
Migration Assistant is running on the target machine and doing the work you describe. The question is: what the difference is between also running Migration Assistant on the source, and merely running Target Mode there.

comment Where did all my Outlook mail go?
Me too (I think I got it in the first months of MSN), following the switch to IMAP, there's nothing on the server or locally older than about a month.

comment Where did all my Outlook mail go?
I can confirm that (at least for me and my family) all MSN mail older than a month or so is lost (without warning), on the server too.

comment How do I migrate my Keychain's “Local Items” to a new Mac?
Note that it also appears that the relevant (i.e. original) information also moved my Migration Assistant into a folder in the target machine's Keychains folder named for the GUID of the source machine; but there appears to be no way to access that information.

comment How do I ensure that none of my Keychain information is stored on Apple's servers?
Note: I no longer have access to the machine on which I originally enabled iCloud keychain. I've signed out of iCloud on that machine and retired the machine.

comment Extract passwords from local items keychain files
Bummer. This has really messed me up (lots of critical passwords in "Local Items" — I never asked to put them there! — and now I'm stuck).
