comment Why won't kern.maxfiles setting in /etc/sysctl.conf stick?
I figured out another way to do what I wanted putting the program under launchctl and using the limits there in a plist. I'll put up a new question once my code changes are reviewed and merged elsewhere.

Do you perhaps know how to set the higher limit to "unlimited' like OS X does by default? I'm specifically looking to adapt this answer to raise the ulimit -n to 1000 and not change any other aspect to run some performance tests for one software package.

Also, an edit will put this question into review status and once that passes - the hold can be removed.

@GraceArgent Welcome to the site. Your question would need more detail for someone to know how you received the screen shot and what you want. For example, you could want to know how to wipe it and start over. You could also want to try and back it up. You also might need to know how to check when your last backup was. This is quite broad and will get vague answers (like mine) saying to troubleshoot more. Since questions are free to ask, why not read our guide on asking a good question and try to ask a more narrow question with specifics? apple.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask

comment Mac mini for Android and ios development
hardware shopping is off topic. Please edit this once you've read the linked articles and have an objective question on learning how to shop as opposed to asking people to raise their hands if they use X for Y. Also, as it stands, it's too broad for a decent answer.

comment Is it possible to wipe an entire iCloud Photo Library?
@PascalHeinemann I'm not aware of that functionality on the web. Photos app on OS X does have the ability to wipe everything cleanly. It wasn't released when I asked this question.

comment Time Machine Full, But Only One Backup (or, what are .RecoverySets and why do they take up so much space?)
Thank you! I just had two backup drives that were in the process of deleting all backups and then failing. 10.8.5 is clearly succeptible to this bug. Would you mind posting the radar number so I can dupe it / file one referring to your situation? The one that still had salvageable backup data had 5980 recovery set entries. :-(

This actually is really helpful for many people. There's even software to automate this on OS X.
