    Hello, I feel as though I am somewhat in a magical land with this beauty and I hope you don't mind if I borrow your expertise.

    I have thousands and thousands of emails to delete as I have have solely been using my iPad mini 2 for about 2 years as traded in my 2011 MBP. I have an outlook account and have always used the mail app. What would be your advice about deleting a large amount of emails quickly? I am disabled and in a wheelchair so the longer keyboard shortcuts are challenging where you need to press many keys at once. One handed typer here.

    I did not mean to but some how all my photos and videos from one drive were dowloaded in all my files, on one drive and in photos. I was trying to figure out the best way to delete duplicate and unneeded photos. What is the best disk cleaning app where I wouldn't have to drag and drop everything ideally? Also, looking to properly monitor my MB operating temp.

    I know that this is a bit off topic but would having a decal or skin cause heating issues? I had hard shell cases in the past and I don't want to make that same mistake.

    Thank you!! Any help or advice is appreciated!

    We used to have scripts to remove duplicate messages but the scripts no longer work. I suggest you download EagleFiler and import your messages into EagleFiler. It will recognize duplicates when importing. Has a demo you can check out.

    Apple Mail will not show you the duplicate messages to manually delete.

    Get this app to remove duplicate photos. PowerPhotos – Merge Mac Photos libraries, find duplicates, and more

    If you need to work with the old iPhoto libraries, you can download the older version, iPhoto Library Manager. Their license covers both apps.

    Apps that clean your Mac can do more harm than good.

    Download EtreCheck. Post the results here. We can check your report to see what you might need to clean.

    It's possible your best solution would be to clone your Mac then boot from the clone and install macOS clean. Move over only your files that you actually need and leave all the old data on the clone for access if needed.
