I'll get back to you on that.

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

The latest development is that when the external hard drive containing my Photos Library is connected, I can, as Stephen suggested, select a photo and share it via "Mail". However, I can no longer initiate an email and then "drag and drop" a photo from the Photo Library. This was my normal just a we...

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Stephen,

So to repair it I'd need another computer. Is the about right?

As for "Sharing" I usually select "Add to Photos" or "Other" and then open the photos app in Finder.

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Okay, then. Here I am again. I took a photo with my iPhone and Airdropped it to the MBP. I attempted to open Finder... I had to Force Quit it as it was not responding. Once re-opened, I opened the downloaded picture with Photos (my external hard drive with the Library being already attached). I edit...

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Ray, as for why I changed my Apple ID (and consequently, my password), it was connected to a google email address that I haven't used in several years (I find gmail rather intrusive). I am trying to close that account as much as possible. Yes, I changed iTunes, all three devices, etc., etc.. The sit...

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Thank you both Stephen and Ray for responding. Stephen, I disconnected the 2 Tb, external (portable) hard drive as you suggested. It has been plugged into a 4-outlet, "Shark" USB 3.0 Hub along with my 1Tb, back-up (portable) hard drive. When I reconnected it I used one of two dedicated USB ports on ...

Finder has pinwheel of death

Recently did two "major" things on my 2015 13" MBP: 1) updated to the latest OS this month. And then, more recently, 2) I changed my Apple ID. Doing that alone created all kinds of headaches with my three devices (MBP, 4th gen iPad and iPhone 5s). I hadn't been using iCloud but suddenly found all ma...

Possible scam phone call from "Apple Support".

Well, I've been treating it as a scam, anyway. A computerized voice claiming to be "Molly" has called on our landline three times today claiming to be from Apple Support, informing us of an iCloud breach. She suggests we call a number for further information (I didn't write it down, but it began wit...

Re: I need to make space on my computer...

Jay, Beautimous! Just what I was looking for. Can items, once in the external drive, still be edited or deleted and viewed in Photo? And are all videos included in this same Photo Library? Is there a way to move videos separately? [I think I have a bug in this iPad. When I typed "same library" I loo...

Re: I need to make space on my computer...

Thanks for the ideas on "backup", but maybe I didn't explain my thoughts quite right. A few years ago a met a fellow who used a separate hard drive for all his photos. After I wrote this inquiry to the forum I recalled that he used to download his pictures right from his camera, then access them on ...
