    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??

    BetterTouchTool & Leap Motion Controller

    Gestures on the Magic TrackPad are all well and good, but they are a bit limited.

    In this episode, I take a look at creating custom gestures using BetterTouchTool (BTT).

    You're only limited by your imagination as BTT includes support for a wide range of actions as well as custom keyboard shortcuts.

    As well as the Magic TrackPad, you can also use it on your Magic Mouse, MacBook TrackPad or even the Leap Motion Controller.

    I also include a short video snippet of the leap Motion Controller in action, being controlled by BetterTouchTool gestures.

    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.
