Re: 10.6 and the 2012-001 Security Update

Can I just drag the internal hard drive icon onto the external drive icon? Doesn't that give me everything and is a bootable drive?

Re: 10.6 and the 2012-001 Security Update

Stephen, I like your idea of cloning to an external drive. I know I have seen several articles/posts on how to clone, but can you quickly tell me how to do that. I don't have any third party (carbon cloner-or something like that I've seen named) software that does that. I only have my Mac things. I ...

Re: 10.6 and the 2012-001 Security Update

Is it safe to download the security update 2012-001 now for users of Snow Leopard? My greatest fear is my wife is using an old-old version of Microsoft Word X for Mac which I think is about the 2001 time period. It will be a disaster, for her, if it should stop working right now.

Re: Playing with Refining Finder

It is in Finder Preferences and not in System Preferences. In the Finder Menu line, at the top or the screen, click on Finder and drop down to Preferences and then click on the Sidebar tab that shows in the window.

Re: Printer Recommendations

Since this thread has been reopened. I have used Epson almost exclusively and have been pleased with their performance. I am presently using an Epson Stylus CX4200 all-in-one machine.

Re: Facebook Phishing And/Or Identity Theft?

Do you know Teri? If not, then I would be very cautious and not go there. If you know her, give her a call and ask how she requested to be your friend.
