Good to see you, Daryl!

Well, your summation of "all are grossly under utilized as to their capability" surely applies to TS members of course. :toothgrin:

I'd hate to have to list all the Apple products I have yet barely use. Do most of my "work" on my 2015 MBP but have newer items sitting mostly quiet. Guess it's the feeling of security knowing there's always something that will step in when needed.  :thumbup:

This is the easiest and reversible.

I assume you are using Safari?

Go to Safari/Preferences/General and choose a new file download location. You can choose one of your partitions.

Easiest way to accomplish your download is to move something from the system partition to one of the other partitions to free up enough space. However, you really shouldn't have the system partition so full since it needs empty space to operate property and efficiently.

It's available now. You will have 16.5.1 (c) when applied. Where did (b) go?

Using Safari 16.5.1 and have no problem getting to the site though it says in the title space that it is "Not secure".

Yes, I found it extremely frustrating that it wasn't easy to download folders, just files. I don't remember exactly what I did other than allow it to sync with the cloud, then copy all the files from the Desktop and Documents to an external. Then turned off the sync and copied those files/folders back to the Mac. I then moved the most important things to a different location (like Downloads) that wasn't under the Desktop/Document file hierarchy just in case it somehow synced on its own as it did in your case.

Here is a link with some interesting thoughts:

Here is some other info I found that may work, or not:
How to download entire folders from iCloud to a MacBook: Here are the steps:Open the Finder app on your MacBook.
  • Click on "Go" in the menu bar and select "iCloud Drive" from the dropdown menu.
  • Navigate to the folder you want to download.
  • Click on the folder to select it.
  • Click on "File" in the menu bar and select "Download" from the dropdown menu.
  • The folder will be downloaded to your MacBook and will appear in your Downloads folder.
    Note that if the folder is very large, it may take some time to download. Also, make sure you have enough storage space on your MacBook to accommodate the download.

Do you still see that little cloud symbol next to the item that signifies it's in the Cloud?Probably not, but drag the column line far enough to the right just to be sure.

Also, try disconnecting your Mac from the internet and see if they will open. Then reconnect and try. Does a GetInfo show a size for them or just 0 kb/mb?

Go online to your icloud acct and see if they are there. If so, download those files and try again.

I gave up on having iCloud automatically store docs, etc. Even though it says it won't take things off your Mac if you have room to keep them there, it lies. I was sick and tired of having to actually download items before I could back them up to external storage because they had been removed from my main drive. Finally I downloaded most to an external drive, then turned off the iCloud sync for docs (which made all the synced files disappear from both iCloud and the Mac) and then copied the data back from the external to my Mac. Did this on two other Macs which was very time consuming but worth the effort.

Now I only use iCloud sync for Mail, Safari, Notes and manually upload selected files and photos for storage.

Here's another not-helpful note: running 16.3 with no icon problems. Guess I might skip .1 and wait for the .2 update.  :)

I got one of those.  At first thought it was a hack, then wondered if you were just reaching out to some of us older members from way back who had at one time exchanged emails with you. But the last sentence in the email sounded odd, asking for an immediate reply. You wouldn't have written that unless you had a problem with TS. But if that were the case you would have said so.

At any rate, I didn't answer due to suspicion and it apparently was correct. Glad you got it all straightened out.  :thumbup:

Hi Lorraine, hope all is well.

When you get to narrating your own books and if you run across the same problem, just substitute a word that doesn't have a "pop" when spoken. It's your book so no one can complain.

Sorry to hear you got snookered by this scam. There have been several articles lately about how prevalent these are.

A few years ago my father nearly got taken by the one where someone pretends to be a relative who had an emergency and needed money. Fortunately I intervened before any money was committed. These scum don't care who they attack or what the consequences are for their schemes.

And now the "Ides of March"...

One can hope that a certain dictator might encounter his Brutus today.  :whistling:

However, it is also the day Germany occupied Czechoslovakia. :unsure:
