If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself, it’s that when I go quiet in my communications, it’s because I’m super busy. That’s been the case over the last couple of months as I’ve been working hard on releasing a brand new book! It’s been an exciting and sleepless stretch, but I’m extremely proud of the results.
Available now, I’m proud to announce Take Control of Your Digital Storage, a 128-page ebook packed with information and costing just $12.99!
Take Control of Your Digital Storage
Hang on. Did he just say storage??
You better believe it. You probably don’t think too much about digital storage day-to-day, but when something goes wrong or you find yourself in need of more capacity, storage suddenly becomes more important. As I can attest, however, the solution is no longer as simple as “buy a new hard drive” to deal with the situation. That’s partly why I wrote and just published Take Control of Your Digital Storage, an ebook focusing on all your Mac storage questions.
Consider: What are the important specs to look for when replacing a hard drive? Should you get a NAS (network-attached storage) instead, and which features are more important than others? What about setting up a RAID (redundant array of independent disks)? And where does cloud storage fit in?
After decades of working with Macs and accumulating massive collections of photos and videos, I’ve pulled together a wide-ranging book about Mac storage that contains just the help you’re looking for. This book answers those questions and also goes into detail about:
- The APFS filesystem introduced in macOS High Sierra, how it works, its advantages, and how to work with containers and volumes
- Using Disk Utility to format, partition, and repair your disks
Encrypting disks or individual files or folders
- Strategies for freeing up disk space, including using iCloud Drive’s Optimized Mac Storage feature
- What to do with a hard drive when it has outlived its usefulness
- How to create and use disk images (and why you’d want to)
