In Topic: How to safely remove an APFS partition?

22 January 2020 - 08:11 AM

A physical volume can be formatted as APFS with multiple APFS containers. APFS containers are similar to traditional logical partitions, in that they are presented to the user as independent volumes (like on HFS+). However they share the physical device free space vs. an HFS+ partition which requires logical partitioning of the free space. e.g. a 1TB drive could have 3 APFS containers sharing the same 1TB free space but under HFS+ you would have to split into three 340GB partitions.

If you do not have any data in the APFS container you desire to remove it can be removed without fear of data loss.

Oh safari, you will get prompted a single time to validate downloads from new domains. This is to prevent drive-by downloads. You can check the ACL for domain downloads in Preferences ¬ Websites ¬ Downloads.

Are you running Catalina? That looks like one of the privacy dialogs in 10.15 (Settings ¬ Privacy ¬ Files and Folders). The goal is to give users COMPLETE control over apps that can access directories and files. Kind of sucks but the modern threat arena is nasty. The age of open computing is over.

I appreciate what they were trying to do by integrating in-game rewards into the social menu. Making the manufacture contact you via "mail" thus the world feels more alive. But I forget about it ALL THE TIME because normally you are in the social menu to deal with party grouping not in-game mechanics. I would rather there be a normal inventory location for these in-game related messages and items.

you are just getting started at level 50. Time to grind anointed loot to build the perfect character and work your way up mayhem levels. I see a lot of complaints about less focus on legendaries but honestly it gives it much more freedom to customize your character IMO. In BL2 you ended up grinding for the same legendaries with little regard for character specific boons.
