Dear Lifehacker, We live in a world with multiple computers for one person, but I am having one issue. How can we keep everything in sync? I would like to work on my Mac at home. Close it, go to work and open my (different) Mac at work. I want the same configuration (yes, I do have some tendencies…), same files, same everything where I left off at home. Any suggestions?
Apple is one of the most reputable tech companies in the world with some of the highest paid interns. Working there must therefore be a dream job, right? Wrong. Over on the career community site Glassdoor, there are plenty of complaints and horror stories from current and former Apple engineers, developers and project managers. Here are some of their chief bugbears that other businesses would do well to avoid.
When you create files with most of Apple’s apps (and some third-party ones) it automatically saves several versions of that files so you can easily jump back to a previous version. This is great in most cases, but if you’re sharing your computer, you might not want people to have access. Six Colours points to a somewhat hidden menu to delete those files.
Despite Apple’s continued work on it, iCloud is still kind of a mess that’s hard to understand. For example, at a glance using Finder, it seems like you can’t recover hidden files. However, as Six Colours points out, if you hop into the web app (remember the web app?), you’ll find a way to recover deleted files pretty easily.
