    Mac Automator - Filter and Move Files

    Hello, I have a workflow that takes all the files from a directory and any within subdirectories, then moves them. The files are filtered, then moved. But, as you can see my filter picks up three files but only moves two. This must be because it can't move two files with the same name into the...

    2018 MBA Slow WiFi Transfers

    Has any body else experienced slower than expected network file transfers over Wifi? I have noticed transferring large video files (2GB+) from my 2018 MacBook Air to a Western Digital MyCloud NAS is 4x-5x slower than it was on my 2013 MBA. Very puzzling.

    I found a weird file in the trash. Should I be concerned?

    I just noticed a file called "mb3-setup-consumer-3.0.6.1469-10103.exe" in my trash. This is definitely not something that I put there and since it's an .exe file it doesn't seem to be something that the OS would put there either. Googling it results in a lot of sketchy websites giving...

    Resolved Strange .txt File Generated

    Was just looking for a file and saw this in my main user folder: I of course did not make it, and I can't recall doing anything yesterday that would've resulted in this, either. Any idea as to why it was generated? Or what the purpose could be? Running Yosemite 10.10.5 (14F2009).
