How to Speed up a Slow Mac


Apple Mac computers can also become slow and sluggish with time and use. So here I will show you four methods to speed up your old-slow-mac.

Method 1: Free up hard drive space
You might have stored many huge video files, thousands of photos and music tracks on our Mac computer. The popularity of using solid-state drives (SSDs) of Mac computers means considerably less capacity than traditional hard drives.

1. Find the large media files on your Mac, delete the unused videos, apps, photos, etc. Or you can move all of them to an external hard drive, and remove them from your Mac.

2. Empty your trash cans, say the user account's main trash can and the iPhoto/iMovie/Mail trash can.

3. Remove junk files from your old Mac, MacClean is the way to go. It helps removing Internet junk, user junk, system junk and application junk on your hard drive.http://www.imobie.com/macclean/

Method 2. Free up more RAM

Most Macs ship with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM. If your Mac has only 4GB or 8GB RAM, the system might be running low when launching programs or loading document.
Step 1. Open up Terminal: ~/Applications/Utilities.
Step 2. Enter the command: Purge, and tap the enter tab.
Step 3. Give your Mac a minute or two to complete the process.
Open up Activity Monitor to see the before and after results, you'll find the Free size increases in System Memory.

Method 3. Kill Unwanted login items

Step 1. Open up System Preferences, and click the Users & Groups.
Step 2. Click the Login Items tab, and you'll see a list of apps that open every time you turn on Mac.
Step 3. Select the login items you want to kill, and click the "-" button to remove them.

Method 4. Clean up your desktop

1. Delete the files you don't need any more, and empty the Trash.
2. Classified the files on your mac, and move them to some folders.
3.Name the folder so that you can easily find the one you need. Why Is My Mac So Slow and How to Fix It

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini overview


MAXTOR MANAGER & SAFETY DRILL SOFTWARE - Clarification
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Please also see tip 'PC RECOVERY & MAXTOR ONETOUCH 4 MINI SOFTWARE' for some more details about managing this invaluable, but problematic, software).

1.) The CD Included with OneTouch 4 Mini
- is only used as a boot disc for system restoration using 'Safety Drill' copies of a whole system
(see 5. and 6. below).
n.b. Maxtor Manager and drivers are not on this CD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2.) Maxtor Manager
- When the drive is new, the installation files for Maxtor Manager (a set of utilies), as well as a comprehensive User Manual, are pre-saved as files on the drive itself. This is why the manual strongly recommends copying and saving them on the PC for future use. This is just in case you need to format the drive and then cannot retrieve the files to reinstall the Manager program later.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3.) Using the OneTouch 4 Mini without extra software
PCs already have the necessary drivers to run external drives so OneTouch can be accessed though its icon in the 'My Computer' window without any other software being required, and files can be copied and 'dragged out' or 'dropped in' as usual.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4.) Installation of Maxtor Manager
- Installation just requires double clicking on the 'Launch' icon, which is among the file icons on the drive itself
chas6_2.jpg
This takes you through the installation steps to install 'Maxtor Manager' on the PC.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5.) 'Safety Drill' Copies
- These are copies of the whole system in its current state, which may be saved onto the OneTouch drive by using the 'Safety Drill' utility, which is only one of the programs in the set of utilities accessed through Maxtor Manager.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6.) Using 'Safety Drill'
- To use it to make a copy, first install Manager and run it, then click on the Safety Drill icon in the row of utility icons across the top of each page.
In the event of a disaster, full recovery to the date of the last or an earlier Safety Drill copy can be achieved.
This is done by putting the supplied CD in the PC's drive, ensuring that BIOS is set to 'boot from CD' (the default), connecting the drive, restarting the PC to boot from the CD (see 1. above), and following the on-screen instructions to restore from a Safety Drill copy which has been saved on the OneTouch drive.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
7.) If Maxtor Manager becomes corrupt
- e.g if Manager ceases to recognise the drive, or if the list of safety drill copies contains duplicates, it is time to uninstall and then reinstall it, which usually puts things right. But see 2.) if you should wish to format the drive as well, make sure you have saved a copy of these installation files from the drive :-
chas6_3.jpg
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8.) Diagnose or repair disk errors, & check warranty status
- Seatools
is a free diagnostic, repair, and auto-warranty checker program which can be downloaded from Seagate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
9.) To preserve the Setup Files
Installation of Maxtor Manager is performed by clicking the file marked 'Launch' which can be found amongst the setup files on the OneTouch drive itself, see 2. above. They are not on the CD which is provided.

The files can more easily be identified at first by exploring the OneTouch drive, where they remain unless the drive is formatted. It is a good idea to copy the setup files to PC because no download is available.
