Hi Weaver peeps!
I’m looking for a bit of advice from people more clued up than myself about how to restore my iMac.
Prior to buying it in 2015 I used a MacBook pro that I bought back in 2008 that eventually slowed down to a crawl, overheated and died. (thank you nvidia!)
Fortunately I used Time Machine on an external drive and so was able to copy everything over to my brand new, fast as anything iMac.
Within a month the 8gb memory may as well be a casio calculator and it’s just as slow as my old MacBook was, despite only ever really using it for RW and Garageband.
I put up with it for 18 months, unsure what to do, and eventually created a new profile to see how well it ran. It was back to it’s old self, hurrah!
1 month on and it was back to a crawl again.
So I’ve put up with it for another 18 months and wonder if I just need to get rid of any old remnants of the 2008 backup and start all over.
It’s a bit scary, so I thought I’d ask the question on here first.
