    I get the same problem. I have emailed instinctive code for advice.

    It's a two finger swipe to the right and that snoozes the notification. I've tested it and it works :)

    Hi, I might be missing something but when I click on a blank area of a stick notification is does not disappear like it does in Don's demo. The only way it goes from the main screen is to close??

    Carbon Copy Cloner & Clean My Mac 2

    With iOS 7 now launched, thoughts turn to OSX Mavericks, due out in a month or two. The upgrade process for a Mac is very different than for an iOS device, with potentially a lot more data at stake.

    So my recommendation would be to get a bootable backup strategy in place and start thinking about cleaning up your Mac.

    So this show runs through two applications that will help you do just that - Carbon Copy Cloner & Clean My Mac 2

  • Carbon Copy Cloner & Clean My Mac 2 Description

    With iOS 7 now launched, thoughts turn to OSX Mavericks, due out in a month or two. The upgrade process for a Mac is very different than an iOS device, with potentially a lot more data at stake.

    So my recommendation would be to get a bootable backup strategy in place and start thinking about cleaning up your Mac.

    So this show runs through two applications that will help you do just that - Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) & Clean My Mac 2

    In this show I take you through using CCC to create a bootable backup and cloning your existing HD recovery partition, as well as demonstrating how to verify your backup and schedule incremental backups.

    Clean My Mac 2 is a beautifully put together App that enables you to recover disk space, uninstall applications and find large and old files.

    Perhaps it's time you gave your Mac a clean up before the new OS comes along!

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Carbon Copy Cloner
    • Preparing Drive with Disk Utility
    • Initial Bootable Backup Job
    • Scheduling An Incremental Backup
    • CCC - Other Features
    • Clean My Mac 2

    Important notice - Drobo devices do not support dynamic volume resizing (reference), and therefore cannot accept a Recovery HD volume. Do NOT attempt to create a Recovery HD volume on a Drobo device using Carbon Copy Cloner or any disk utility application.

    Cloak - Secure VPN for Your Mac

    You're at your local coffee shop using their free WiFi. Just how secure are you? Not very secure as it turns out!

    You need to use a VPN or Virtual Private Network to create a secure "tunnel" out of the free wifi zone, to prevent anyone being able to snoop on your data locally.

    This week, Todd Olthoff takes a look at Cloak for Mac, an inexpensive VPN client for your Mac. The iOS version is covered in this week's iOS show. Cloak creates a secure connection between you and the Cloak servers to secure your data. As an added bonus, the built in "Cloak Transporter" service allows you to mimic being connected in other countries, ideal for when you're away from home yet want to access geolocation specific services.

    ChronoSync, ChronoAgent & InterConneX

    One of my most used applications this week - ChronoSync. ChronoSync is an application I use daily to backup and synchronise my data between my Macs, my Drobo and my Synology NAS server. Highly configurable and customisable, it's really simple to set up synchronisation documents to undertake a variety of tasks. Once created, simply use ChronoSyncs built in scheduler to automate the process.

    I also take a look at ChronoAgent, optional software you can install on your Mac targets to give you even more control and flexibility.

    Econ Technologies have just released a new app for the iPad - InterConneX - that allows you to utilise ChronoSync and ChronoAgent to sync or access files between your Mac and your iPad, or even iPad to iPad. I take a brief look at this in this week's Mac show but explore further in this week's iOS show.

    Sign + Encrypt Email and Files on Mac - GPGTools

    Without being overly dramatic, recent events have shown that your private data may not be as private as you think. Storing any unencrypted data or emails on remote services may eventually be accessed and read by official and unofficial prying eyes.

    The tutorial takes you through the simple process of installing the Open Sourced GPGTools including GPG Mail 2. Its much simpler to setup than you might think, and once setup, signing and encrypting email is as easy as clicking a button.

    Even if you don't intend to encrypt all your emails, the tutorial shows you how to get your own public and private keys, so other people can send you signed and encrypted emails and files.

    This week, I demonstrate just how easy it is to digitally sign and encrypt your email with a strong 2048-bit RSA key, so you can prove who sent it and restrict decoding to just those you intend. Not just emails, I also show you how to sign and encrypt files too, all by the use of a simple suite of tools.

    The full tutorial covers:

    • GPG Tools

      • Installation
      • Generating a Key Pair
      • Sending an Encrypted & Signed Email
      • Searching For Public Keys
