An instant list of tips for the problems of Mac OS X users and owners are facing! The primary indication is that one gets the beach ball on any of the task and it will take four or better 5 times more times to do the things that one needs to do. And so it depends on the schedule, it may send one ridiculous. One began to consider that Lion is relative to Windows Vista. One must be reminded that the tips below need backing up and restoring one’s system. If one is not meticulous one may lose all. One is responsible for one’s actions. Be very careful!How can one solve one’s problem? Just follow the tips listed below:
1) One must check the Disk Permissions and the Disk itself:
Applications_Utilities __Disk Utility: -Press in one’s disk, and then CERTIFY DISK. If all is OK, When it is not REPAIR DISK -Then press on VERIFY DISK PERMISIONS: When everything is OK, proceed, If not, then Repair. The step no.1 is to ensure that one’s slowness is because of the things that are related to the OS itself and not to permissions/disk. When this will solve the slowness, one is OK. One does not need further steps. In one case, this only helped a little. The beach balling is decreased by 20% only. It is still very slow progress.
2) One must do a whole backup of one’s system.
One must use Time Machine. Ensure that one has all of one’s applications closed. Then the backup must be full. When one fails to do a great backup, one will probably lose everything! So be sure that one will do a great one! One can do it twice on two different disks. NOW One has been warned!
3) One must do a whole reinstate of one’s continuous system.
Then, one must get the Install CD which came along with one’s Mac. -One must put it in one’s drive, shut off one’s computer. – As one holds the C key, click the button start in one’s Mac. It will start booting using the Install CD that came along with one’s Mac. Ways to recover one’s entire system:
4) One must remove the CD and then begin to boot.
When one does that, the system come back very fast and very responsive. There are no more beach balls (only in the really-intensified tasks) and everything will be back to normalcy.
5) Then what was it anyway?
Before one does this Restore/Backup one was getting lots of DISK I/O ERRORS, specifically at booting time (one can verify that by shutting off one’s Mac, power it back on and instantly press command -V-Verbose Mode. Right, the thing that came to one’s mind is that one had faulty hard drive, but one will verify it many times for mistakes (via Disk utility) but nothing was exposed. Then one plans to do a full restore/backup of the system. And it was successfully resolved!
