What happens when the computer get too full of e-mails?  Will it automatically start deleting ... or give you some kind of warning??  I never delete personal mail right away since I might want to refer back to it, and then the first thing I know, I've got a big backlog. 

It will not automatically delete any emails; you will need to do that. You may suffer performance  issues in Mail  if you let your mailboxes become too bloated. And, aside from Mail, the files take up a lot of room are photos, videos, and music, so you might want to watch those - every once in a while, check how much hard drive space you have and make sure you empty the trash regularly. Checking your hard drive space: highlight your Macintosh HD icon on the desktop; hit Command  + I and check the total capacity, and how much is left.

  • TS1503 How do I clear the 'other data' on my iPhone 4S? It is using 25% of the available memory.  I do not want to have to wipe it and then reset every thing I use.  That's why I have restore.  Except restore puts the other data back on the phone.

    I've come to the conclusion that Apple is no better than Microsoft.  There was a functional iTunes. I could sync music, playlists, etc; across my iPad and iPhone.  I can't now.  It now eats up storage on my devices with 'other data',  and Apple is silent on what is going on.   I currently have 2 iMacs, 2 iPads, a Macbook Pro, and an AirBook Pro.  I will stop purchasing Apple products.  It is a royal pain to fix anything.  This support page tries my patience to use.  I used to enjoy working with Apple products, simply because they functioned and where intuitive to use.  No more.  Music is impossible to sync across platforms using the same account.  Songs only, no playlists.  This is step back to the early year of systems.  No common data formats, zero portablity, and labor intensive. 
    Way to go Apple,  you've destroyed your reputation!

    Similar issue -- this is the third time in as many months that I've had to restore my iPad. It's a iPad Mini w/ 32GB (ME277LL/A), running the latest iOS8.1.2. The "other" data starts off about 1GB and will bob around that. I was careful about games this time, seeing only a slight rise in the data. Once it started to rise, I deleted all of the game and the data on Game Center. No joy -- the data stays about the same.
    Then I noticed it was really climbing -- shooting up to about 10GB and sitting there, no matter what I did: sync it: nothing. Deleting music (on the off chance it was album art or some such: nothing. Deleted all the books in iBooks: no effect -- still 10GB. Cleared the iCloud storage, cleared caches repeatedly: nothing. Reset everything: no effect. Only Restoring the iPad -- which takes forever and is a gigantic pain in the @$$ -- gets it down. This is exactly the same thing that happened the other two times -- I lose about 10GB to "other."
    I now suspect, thinking on what I was doing with the device, that pulling movies from iTunes seems to be the culprit. Deleting the movies might take the movie "off the iPad", but there seems to be a corresponding jump in Other. My guess is there's some glitch dumping the information elsewhere.
    It makes a 32GB iPad pretty frickin' close to useless in a remarkable amount of time. I've not had this issue until this iPad (bought last summer) with the iOS8 upgrade. I don't see this happen on the iPhone 5S with the same OS...that's why I dialed down to iTunes (when is it not smack in the middle of issues?) and Video as the culprit; I don't watch movies on the phone.
    I've noticed a massive amount of posts in support and around the web on this matter...it might be time for Apple to shift it and do something about the matter. If I'm going to be restricted to surfing the web, email, and little else thanks to the Other issue, it really doesn't make sense to stick with this device. I can doo all that on my laptop, can't it?

  • HT1430 what happens when i always get sim failure and loosing service and get sim Failure

    im always getting sim failure on my phone and always loose service

    First step would be to go to your wireless carrier and get a new sim.
    If that does not work, post back with the exact wording of any error
    messages you get when new sim is in the iPhone. Also post what
    it says when you look at Settings=>General=>Carrier.

  • HT201303 what happens when your iphone gets stolen

    iphone stolen

    In a word: Nothing.
    My iPhone 4S was stolen a month ago after I had barely had it for a year. It had everything installed including "find my iPhone" and iCloud, etc.... what Apple does not tell you is that these location services are useless if you are dealing with experienced thieves who know exactly what to do... Despite Apple being technically able to deactivate the phone instantly (provided you can give them a police report number and the phone's serial number) they REFUSE to do so and claim they "have no program" for such an event.
    Oh and btw: LAPD classifies the theft of an iPhone as petty theft and as such will not do a thing about it - 'we don't do iPhones" I was told...
    All your phone service provider is generally willing to do is interrupt service but not much else. What does it help you to know where the phone is via GPS?

  • What happens when buffers fill up?

    I guess this is a pretty basic question but my application is here. What happens when a buffer gets full? Does it stop reading and throw an exception or does it keep reading but destroy the information it received at the beginning? They question related to an application where I'd like, when an event is triggered, to store the last 10 seconds on video.

    i think you might get an exception (Array out of bound). Somehow it depends on how u implement your buffer.

  • WHAT HAPPENS WHEN...........

    I have a dual boot set up with 98se and XP. The 98 drive is hurtin and is gonna give up the ghost soon. What happens when I replace it with a new drive? Will I have to Reactive XP? I hope not. BIGDADDY51CT. Any info?

    Hi bigdaddy,
    Have you installed the other drive after the XP disk was installed?
    If the stuff worked well in that case you can easily change disks, coz it worked in the past.
    Have a look at on which drive the files :NTDLR, boot.ini, ntdetect, are because that's the drive XP is booting from. That is your actual C:\.
    If those files are on the defective drive you have a problem because I don't know if you can copy them to another drive and make them working.
    If you are going to try and copy you CANNOT boot to XP and copy them coz they are locked, make sure to see hidden files in the explorer else you won't be able to see them.
    This is not going to be easy so good luck,
    @lbert

    It's because you are both using the same iTunes Library on your computer and you are both using the same Apple ID on each phone.
    One of you must start a new computer user account and get a new Apple ID. Then start operating on the ocmputer from the new account. He/she will also need to restore their phone from the new account and using the new Apple ID. This way everything on each of your phones will remain separate.

  • I have Lightroom 4 and my hard drive is getting too full wiht pictures i have in lightroom. I want to move many to a thumbdrive and delete them from lightroom. what are the steps to perform this please ?

    I have Lightroom 4 and my hard drive is getting too full wiht pictures i have in lightroom. I want to move many to a thumbdrive and delete them from lightroom. what are the steps to perform this please ?

    If you want to be able to view, edit and export from Lightroom you can move the files using your computer OS (explorer or finder) and update the folder location by right-clicking on the folder name in the LR Library. See fig 8 at the attached link:
    http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm
    This will work when the thumb drive is connected.
    If you really have no need to keep these files off-line in LR then simply move the files, select all the thumbnails in the LR Library and hit delete. Then choose remove.

    Try compressed air. Try tweezers and a magnifying glass with good light.
    The next step would be to Google an iPhone repair service in your area or use this as a good reason to upgrade.

  • I made a project with multiple tracks and had it all panned and mixed.  Now it's only playing in the right speaker.  Not even regestering a left side in the master volume?  What happened, how can I get both sides back?

    Thank you for that info.
    For video, the codec is MPEG-4 Video (XVID) and for audio it says MPEG Audio Layer 1/2/3 (mpga).
    There are two issues with that file:
    The first is the Xvid CODEC (not meant for editing), and then the MPEG Audio/MPGA. I would convert that file, to something that is more editable.
    Good luck,

    When i plugged my ipod into the computer it started to make buzzing and screeching noises. It became hot so i removed it and then the screen froze while it continued to make these noises. I have never had anything like this happen. (never gotten it wet or had it exposed to extreme temperatures) It is also unresponsive to any buttons on the ipod and it didn't show up when i plugged it into my computer. What do I do? Also if it is unfixable could i get a free one from apple?

  • What happens when the Time Machine drive is full?

    I'm on my second iMac. My first one (G5, 1984) died, and I replaced it early 2010 with an Intel mac. The transition when exceedingly well largely due to Time Machine. I just hooked the Time Machine drive to the new system, and I was soon back up running!
    My home folder has 70GB of data. The Macintosh drive has 105GB of data and 395GB free. The Time Machine drive has 220GB used and 30GB free.
    1. What happens when the Time Machine drive is full?
    2. Do I have control over what backups get deleted?
    3. If lightning strikes twice, will I still be able to restore my Intel mac like my G5 mac, even if backups get deleted?
    4. Is there anyway to control what backups/backup files get deleted?
    5. Any other thoughts?
    Thanks.

    Do you mean all of them? The entire Backups.backupdb folder?
    That's a large mess. First, even a normal delete will take a very long time, as there are probably hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of files. Your best bet by far is to simply erase them with Disk Utility -- that will only take a few moments. If your TM drive has a single partition, see #1 in [Formatting, Partitioning, Verifying, and Repairing Disks|http://web.me.com/pondini/AppleTips/DU.html]. If there are other partition(s) on the drive, see #2 there.
    If not, and you only deleted some of the folders, you have a different, worse problem. Unfortunately, Apple doesn't do a very good job of warning folks: +*Never move, change, or delete anything in your backups via the Finder or Terminal.+*
    You shouldn't have to delete backups at all, since Time Machine will do that automatically when the disk/partition gets full. But you can do it without harm via Time Machine. See #12 in [Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions|http://web.me.com/pondini/Time_Machine/FAQ.html] (or use the link in *User Tips* at the top of this forum).
    A normal delete will take a very long time, as there are probably tens or hundreds of thousands of items, each of which must be individually deleted. A secure delete will take much, much longer, as each deleted file must be overwritten with zeros.

  • If I have two laptops connected to a single wireless hard drive, what happens when one laptop wants to go on a trip and the other one needs to stay home?

    if I have two laptops connected to a single wireless hard drive (i.e. Time Capsule), what happens when one laptop wants to go on a trip and the other one needs to stay home?  I'm afraid I know the answer, but I'm hoping Apple has a great solution to my problem.

    What if this little piggy goes to market but this little piggy stays home?
    The computer on a trip will do snapshot backups on the hard drive that will then be incorporated into the Time Machine backup once you get it back home. See
    OS X Lion- About Time Machine's "local snapshots" on portable Macs
    Open the Terminal in the Utilities folder and enter or paste the appropriate command line. Press RETURN and enter your admin password when prompted. It will not be echoed.
    To turn them ON: sudo tmutil enablelocal
    To turn them OFF: sudo tmutil disablelocal
    Note that turning them OFF will also delete all existing snapshots.
