One thought on “Long Term Storage, Photos, & Cool Stuff Found — Mac Geek Gab 851

  • I wish I had listened to Bill’s photo storage question before getting into my current migration/cleanup cycle of Photos… oy. (Days of working in PowerPhotos to bundle things into two-year tranches)

    Separate question JFB: I’ve managed to get my Drobo 5D in an interesting state… was working fine connected to a High Sierra machine and then I a) hooked it up to a Catalina machine; b) turned on File Sharing. Now I have mounted it back on the High Sierra machine and any write attempt causes an error -50 in Finder. Is there some secret flag I turned on by enabling sharing?
