    Anyone figured out a bootable clone option yet for Big Sur?

    slow to cancel iPhone backup

    Sometimes, when I need to reboot, I can't because Big Sur is backing up my iPhone. If I go into finder and cancel the backup, it takes a very long time to stop (minutes if not longer). But today I noticed that if I disconnect my iPhone from my Mac, it stops immediately. Is there something I...

    Big Sur CLAIMS to be able to look at other Time Machine volumes but doesn't (also: permissions)

    So, scrolling around, it looks like there are lots of issues with Time Machine and Big Sur, particularly with older data. I didn't see this anywhere, though.
