Free and premium options. <p>It can be annoying to have to constantly remount network drives and network shares. Some apps can fail to launch if they depend on files stored on an unmounted network share. Here are five different options for auto-mounting network share on MacOS.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/automount-netshare-macos.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:22a5151e-766e-4181-b92a-4ec32248cbbc 2022-04-03T14:10:00Z 2022-04-03T14:10:00Z Should you trust a third-party bootloader to run newer MacOS versions? OpenCore lets you run the latest MacOS on unsupported Apple legacy hardware (and PCs). But software that bypasses security restrictions requires a lot of trust. <p>Apple periodically drops support for its older hardware, and customers get left with an increasingly insecure and outdated system. The Hackintosh scene, a community dedicated to running MacOS on unsupported hardware, might help extend the life of your Mac. However, can you trust its community-developed software to the same degree as you blindly trust Apple?</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/macos-opencore-trust.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:5d3ddbad-63cd-4b48-9b9c-1e64cd21d5c6 2021-05-25T12:54:00Z 2021-05-25T12:54:00Z How I fixed the intermittent Wi-Fi dropouts on my MacBook The Wi-Fi on my MacBook Pro has intermittently stopped working. (Likely a Broadcom driver issue). Here’s how I turned a simple workaround into a more permanent fix. <p>The Wi-Fi on my MacBook Pro (a late-2013, 39 cm model, MacBookPro11,2) randomly stops working. It doesn’t lose the connection, and Wi-Fi Diagnostics can’t find anything wrong. The networking just stops working. Here's how I found out what was wrong, how you can find out if you’re having the same problem, and how I found a fix.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/macbook-wifi-dropouts.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:5461c49c-b0e5-416c-bdf4-e2d01806998e 2021-02-03T16:23:00Z 2021-02-03T16:23:00Z The missing gigabytes of disk space on my Mac My Mac was missing roughly 130 GB of internal disk space. I suspected APFS/Time Machine snapshots, but find it hiding in the leftovers from the Mac App Store. <p>My MacBook only has 250 GB of storage, but 130 GB of storage space went missing for over a year. So, where did the storage space go? and how is it all Apple’s fault?</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/darwin-user-cache-gigabytes.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:eda83ea5-f3b0-470d-a724-b5a76905e849 2021-01-22T15:50:00Z 2021-02-10T15:58:00Z How to disable Adobe Cloud Sync on MacOS Adobe doesn’t give you an off-switch for its cloud storage service. However, you can still turn it off and prevent it from running in the background. <p>Adobe Creative Cloud <em>really</em> wants you to use its cloud storage service. Adobe doesn’t give you a way to turn it off.
