OS X Lion: About Auto Save and Versions

Auto Save–Auto Save in OS   X Lion saves during pauses in your work and, if you work continuously, it will save after 5 minutes. It saves in the background, so you can work without the distraction of having to remember to save, or being interrupted by progress bars. Versions–Versions automatically records the history of a document as you create and make changes to it. OS X Lion automatically creates a new version of a document each time you open it and every hour while you’re working on it. You can also create snapshots of a document whenever you like. With an interface similar to that of Time Machine, Versions shows you the current document next to a cascade of previous versions, allowing you to do side-by-side comparisons of your working document with past versions. You can restore entire past versions, or bring elements from past versions such as pictures or text into your working document. Auto Save Apps developed with Auto Save such as Preview, iWork, and TextEdit can automatically save changes to your document as you work. Because Auto Save saves all changes in the background, you can work without the distraction of pauses or progress bars. Auto Save in OS X   Lion adds the changes directly into the file so there’s only one copy of the document on your Mac. This Auto Save in OS X Lion saves during pauses in your work and, if you work continuously, it will save after 5 minutes. Clicking the title bar displays its menu. Lock–You can lock a document at any time to prevent inadvertent changes. Two weeks after the last edit, OS X   Lion automatically locks the document for you. Tip: You can set the interval for OS X Lion to automatically lock your documents by clicking the "Options…" button in the Time Machine System Preferences then choose what interval you want from the "Lock documents" pop-up menu. When you try to make a change on a Locked file, OS X   Lion asks if you want to unlock or duplicate the file. When a document is locked you will see a dimmed message of "– Locked" just to the right of your window title. A lock icon appears in the bottom left of the proxy icon and also on the document icon in Finder. To unlock your document, click "– Locked" in the title bar and select "Unlock". Duplicate–The Duplicate feature creates a copy of your document and places it next to the original. So you can start a fresh version using the original as a template. Revert to Last Saved / Opened Versions–You can easily undo recent changes. If you’re not happy with the changes you made, choose "Revert to Last…", then click the confirmation sheet and your document reverts to its state when you last saved or opened it. So you can experiment freely, knowing you can always start again from the top. Browse All Versions–When selected your document will enter the Versions browser.  See the "Versions" section below for details. Versions Each time you open a document, OS   X   Lion automatically saves the current version. It also saves a new version every hour while you work, building a history of the document as you go. You can manually create a version of your saved document at any time by choosing File > Save a Version or press Command-S (⌘-S). OS X   Lion saves only the information that has changed since the last version, making efficient use of space on your hard drive . OS X   Lion manages the version history of a document, keeping hourly versions for a day, daily versions for a month, and weekly versions for all previous months. When you share a document–for example through email, iChat, or AirDrop–only the current version is sent; all other versions remain on your Mac. Elements of the Versions browser Current version–The current version of your document. History–A cascade of past of versions for your document. Tip: You can copy and paste elements of past versions, like graphics and text, into your current version. Restore button–Click it to restore, replacing your current document with the version at the forefront of your history (item 2). Timeline–The timeline of past versions of your document. Click a date to see how your document looked on any given day.

iPhoto '11: Restoring from Time Machine with iPhoto '11 (9.2 or later) and OS X Lion 10.7.2 (or later)

Important: If you are using earlier versions of iPhoto 9 and OS X Lion , please update them first. Do this by clicking the Apple () menu, choosing Software Update, and installing any available updates. iPhoto may need to be updated through the Mac App Store. When using iPhoto ’11 (version 9.2 or later) and Time Machine with  OS X Lion 10.7.2 (or later), iPhoto no longer has the Browse Backups option. This means that instead of restoring specific photos within your iPhoto Library, you must restore your entire iPhoto Library. Follow the steps below to view and restore from your Time Machine drive . To restore photos: Quit iPhoto. Connect your Time Machine drive . In the Finder, open the folder containing your iPhoto Library. Unless you've moved your iPhoto Library, it can be found in Home/Pictures/iPhoto Library. Enter Time Machine.  (Time Machine can be found in the Dock or in the /Applications folder.) Choose your desired backup. The timeline on the right side of the screen displays a purple tick mark for each of the backups stored on your Time Machine drive . Select the iPhoto library you would like to restore, and click the Restore button. iPhoto may prompt you to repair your library if there are some inconsistencies in your files. If so, please allow it to proceed by clicking the Repair button. If you notice blank thumbnails, reopen iPhoto while holding down the Command and Option keys. When the Rebuild iPhoto Library window appears, enable the "Rebuild all of the photos’ thumbnails" checkbox. This may take a long time, depending on the size of the library.

OS X: About Recovery Disk Assistant

Recovery Disk Assistant is provided for use with Macs using OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion . With Recovery Disk Assistant, you can create a Recovery System on an external drive that allows you to reinstall OS X, repair the disk using Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, or browse the web with Safari. This drive can be used in the event you cannot start your computer with the built-in Recovery System, or you have replaced the hard drive with a new one that does not have OS X installed.

OS X Recovery Disk Assistant v1.0

Built right into OS X, OS X Recovery lets you repair disks or reinstall OS X without the need for a physical disc. The OS X Recovery Disk Assistant lets you create OS X Recovery on an external drive that has all of the same capabilities as the built-in OS X Recovery: reinstall Lion or Mountain Lion, repair the disk using Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, or browse the web with Safari. Note: In order to create an external OS X  Recovery using the OS X Recovery Assistant, the Mac must have an existing Recovery HD.

OS X Mavericks: Only connect OS X Mavericks Fusion drives to OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5 or later

Physically connecting a Fusion drive  created by OS X Mavericks or later with a Mac using  OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.4 is not recommended. Activities that create sustained, intensive drive activity (such as video editing) may result in the Fusion drive becoming unreadable. To avoid this, update your Mountain Lion computer to OS X v10.8.5 or later before connecting your Mavericks-based Fusion drive . If your Fusion drive is unreadable as a result of connecting it to an older OS version, reformat the drive using Disk Utility. Then, install OS X Mavericks and restore from backup. This symptom does not occur when connecting to a Fusion drive using File Sharing, instead of target disk mode or other physical connection methods.  

Low power alert with USB devices, USB keyboard, and USB SuperDrive

When you're using these devices together, plug them directly into the Mac's USB ports instead of the keyboard. This prevents the low alert from appearing. You can also plug your devices into a powered USB hub to avoid this message. Alternatively, simply disconnect the Apple USB SuperDrive from the computer while the USB devices are plugged into the keyboard.

OS X Mountain Lion: Use Apple Diagnostics or Apple Hardware Test

Use Apple Diagnostics or Apple Hardware Test Apple Diagnostics and Apple Hardware Test are tools for diagnosing problems with your computer’s internal hardware, such as the logic board, memory, and wireless components. You may be able to start your Mac with Apple Diagnostics or Apple Hardware Test, even if it doesn’t start using OS X. The tool you use depends upon your model of Mac and version of OS X: If you have a new Mac (mid-2013 or later), use Apple Diagnostics, which is built into your Mac. If your Mac has OS X v10.8.3 or earlier, use Apple Hardware Test, which is built into your Mac. If you updated your Mac to OS X v10.8.4 or later, use the system software disc or USB flash drive that came with your Mac. Note: To see which version of OS X you have, choose Apple menu > About This Mac. Apple Diagnostics and Apple Hardware Test don’t check external hardware components, such as USB or FireWire, or non-Apple devices, such as PCI cards from other vendors. They don’t check for operating system (OS X) or software-related problems such as app or extension conflicts. If a hardware problem isn’t detected, you may have a problem with your version of OS X.
