Yeah; I had to get a replacement Mac last month and ended up getting one 20GB "essentials" zip from Backblaze so I could carry on working while a much larger downloaded completed. I should probably look into a NAS that can handle Time Machine.
That would be really useful – thank you! It's not something I want to think about to be honest, so I'd rather splash out and buy a box that gives me 5 years of worry-free life 😅 First hit on Google was a MacWorld article recommending this:
I have the older version of this
Upgradable ram, runs Plex if that’s your thing, I have it running Docker containers for Unifi Video, Pi-hole, and Homebridge.
The software is really super useful.
Yes that is my understanding too - the more I researched it the more I found people having the same issue with any networked Time Machine. For large video file archives I don’t see the benefit in TM so synology is perfect for me.
Lazy tweet to Synology user: can you get an SSD only solution? I’d like a device with just m2 ssd drives. I can’t find anything like that on their site. I find their site to be hard to navigate though.
If I “clean it regularly” I have to wait for it to re-do the “preparing debugger” support when I reconnect a device for which I don’t have the necessary support files. I test regularly on several different devices / OS combinations.
In the early days, yes. Got it to run and we're excited about it but we didn't have the bandwidth to support Catalyst _and_ iPadOS, and we chose the latter. Catalyst is still very much in our roadmap though
Ug, don't get me started. Also the drives increase in speed as they get larger.
As most compilation is io intensive, faster io (and ram) has noticable impact.
We changed our dev team to 32gb ram. Saw a 30% bump in some cases.
I’ve been hearing that for years from designers, and regular users, not only storage, but hardware specs. It’s like some for them are unable to see that, for designing, they use programs we developers programmed, same with games and all...
I'm just a fucking gamer who does the occasional Photoshop. I didn't reset my computer for a year thanks to the lack of Windows Rot, and I'm already running out of storage. May God have mercy on my soul.
