Last week I bought a 1TB SSD and Mac Mini tools, watched the YouTube video, and replaced the hard drive. What a difference it made!!!! Things that took 10 to 30 seconds to open are up within 3 to 5 seconds. Its super fast compared to what it was. It’s like having a whole new machine. Whatever Apple makes to replace it, I hope they just put an SSD in it. FYI, the process to replace the drive is not hard but you do have to tear down most of the machine CAREFULLY which would be entirely unnecessary if you could just open the top cover!
I would like to see a comprehensive article that covers the restore process from these products rather than just the backup process. I have recovered corrupted mac disks with time machine and the process is as simple as booting into a recover mode and selecting time machine as the source, wait an hour or hours and your Mac is back! But, what about Super Duper and CCC? Do I need to make a boot device and then get it to copy clone the drive back? I assume the process is more involved? Thanks
I so agree! I had to replace Safari with a safe browser which helps BUT, the app makers figure out ways around it by embedding videos, hidden ads, and other things into their kid game apps. Even if you get a parental controlled router, the kids figure out they can go to their friends house and connect to their unprotected Wi-Fi or switch to cell service. Worse yet, a control on an iPad/iPhone won’t work on a MacBook. I don’t expect Apple to love everything but more features in this area would be very helpful.
