Welcome, Lone Duck. You will find quite a few helpful folks here. When you make a post requesting assistance, make sure to include the following information:

1. The exact Mac model you have.

2. The exact Mac OS you are running.

3. If you have ever done any disk cleanup/maintenance/repairs from a software perspective.

4. This one is critical: if you are making backups to an external device, and if you are, what software you are using for that task.

By the way, we are "kind of" neighbors. I am located just south of Seattle, and I just turned 74. I actually like to go swimming in the winter (at an LA Fitness), and do quite a bit of hiking from the spring through the early fall. Part of that includes picking ferns, blackberries, grapes, plums, and chestnuts (my wife makes excellent wine from the blackberries and grapes). As I suspect you know, we live up in "God's country", in terms of the natural beauty.

Once again, welcome!

Hello Honestone Thank you for your kind welcome. Yes we are sort of neighbours. I live mile 300 alaska hwy. Fort nelson. About 1500 miles between us ,That is sort of close for the internet . I have been watching the blogs here and can't find a similar question so I will post mine later. Once again thank you.
