high five bmike

My name is Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. Help me help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment Alternative to HFS+ disk format for Time Machine backups
Hugo - please try to be polite to people that are trying to help you. I've deleted comments that weren't constructive. If you can edit in what specific issue you have with HFS+ and document your issue, the likelihood that someone can help you will increase as the simple answer is Time Machine insists on HFS+ so the answer to your initial question as it stands is "none".

comment iPhone OTA update: How to get hidden space back?
I had a device running beta versions of the iOS where messages would download a ton of data. Luckily on 8.1 you can start influencing the "hidden" storage of things like Mail and Messages. First off, what does the usage show as the largest 3 bins of data? What are the exact values of Used and Available on the storage for your device according to the 8.1 settings app?

comment ETA for WorkGroup Manager 10.10
I think Alistair has seen the same "writing on the wall" as many professional Mac admins. The old workgroup tools and MCX extensions are being shown the door and are unlikely to make a recovery.
