Customer Question
I have over 13,000...

I have over 13,000 pictures on my Mac as I have an active eBay store. I only know how to delete one picture at a time and I Cloud is going to begin charging. Is there a way to delete a lot of pictures at a time?

Technician's Assistant: Can you still find your pictures in the Trash bin? Have you set up any backup software (e.g. Time Machine)?

I cannot find them there now. The trash, including what I had deleted, all came bac to active on Sumday. Some of the deleted files cme back three times. It was like coming back from the dead. I was not on my computer when this happened. I opened the computer and all 12,000 pictures were gone. Later they came back and were all there and I have started one delete at a time ... again.

Technician's Assistant: How long ago was your pictures deleted?

This pas Sunday

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

Yes, do I have to be with Cloud? Any other way to have my pictures hosted by someone else?

I have not properly learned how to use my mac. I always had a PC and my husband gave me a Mac as a gift. It was like telling me to immediately speak a foreign language. I am extremely busy as I own two businesses. I don't have time to take
a course. I need something easy so that I can learn while using the Mac. Can you recommend something for me ?

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
