Ed,

One of the easiest ways for me to help you clear out this data would be to remotely connect to your computer. You can watch and communicate with me while I fix things up for you. Would you like remote services?

More cost?
Expert:  technicalcat replied 1 year ago.

Ed,

Yes, remote services is a premium service for an additional fee, but it is well worth it. If you don't want remote services, we can continue here , but it may take longer and be more difficult as I will have to instruct you on the troubleshooting. Just let me know what you would like to do.

I need to be shown how to get rid of unused files and programs. For instance i have 6000 photos in this old computer which are now duplicated on backup disc and ipad after synching , also stored in icloud. How do you assure photos stay in icloud without risk of loss? Hopefully handled as a group rather than one photo at a time.

What determines that icloud copy is preserved?
Expert:  technicalcat replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I can show you this over a remote connect.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I would have expected some progress toward my needs before additional expense is incurred. Can you relate any solution in writing?

  • Open you browser, and navigate to www.icloud.com.
  • Log in iCloud with your Apple ID.
  • Now you can view the content on iCloud
  • This is where you would check for your icloud content , files,

Let me know if you are able to verify your files on icloud, and then we will try to proceed with instructions for finding and deleting the files on your computer.
