Customer Question
I am having a...

I am having a problem with photos and I photo... I have many duplicate photos and have tried to delete them, but it seems that the more times I try, the more duplicates I find in the library .

Technician's Assistant: Are you working with a phone, tablet, or computer?

What is the proper way to delete duplicates?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long ago was your photos deleted?

Working on Mac book pro

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

The Mac book pro is a recent replacement for my failed I Mac desk top. I had to have my data retrieved by an apple authorized service/dealer

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
