Likewise, last night, he tried doing a math assignment on his iPad -- but it would only display 9 or the 30 problems he had to solve because it wouldn't scroll. He shifted over to his now Windows 10 MacBook and completed the assignment.Personally, I would want to hear all of the pluses and the minuses of an Apple Silicon Mac before sinking a grand or two into one.

SergeKouch said:I've been using Disk Warrior from the earliest version 2. It worked fine until version 4 came out. It would slow down my mac and crash it so I had to reinstall OS X. After almost 4 years I have read all those "nice" reviews about this new update on version 5 and I purchased it again, which I regret now very much. Although, I have to say that It didn't crash my macs like version 4 did, but it still slows them down more then twice. Before I run DW 5 on my macs, I've tested the speed of the drives with 'Blackmagic Disk Speed Test' (this is a simple softwere to test read and write speed of your hard drive) and after running Disk Warrior 5 the speed of my macs become twice or more slower then it was before. I will never ever buy anything from Alsoft and would never ever recomend it to anyone.
Since Apple added journaling to HFS+ with the introduction of MacOS X 10.3 or so, routine maintenance has been virtually unnecessary. However, there may be occasional damage created by unexpected shutdowns due to power interruptions and such like. Following such events, running File System Check in Single User Mode will fix just about any conceivable file system issue:
- Press [cmd] + [S] while OS X reboots.Your Mac will boot into a fullscreen CLI that assumes that you want to run File System Check (fsck). Follow the instructions on the screen.
- If the file system has been completely repaired, then type exit as the command prompt. Else, rerun fsck.
- After the exit command, fsck will clean up and return your computer to the OS X GUI.

This is probably an excellent reason ALL Apple logins and passwords should be replaced with either Touch ID or the combination of Touch ID and a password, so no one, not even Apple could access user data.
