MacBook Pro :: Flash Memory (storage) Rises Every Time On Opening A File Or Program?

Aug 24, 2014

My computer has 500 GB of capacity, but I have seen that every time I open a file or boot something the memory used rises a little. Is this normal? It is the first time that I have seen.

OS X :: Using Time Machine Or Other Program To Back Up Flash Drive?

Mar 10, 2009

Everyone seems to want to back up to a flash drive, but what about someone who is carrying around valuable files to work so he can work on them in various locations (home, lab, school computers etc) and wants to safeguard against possibly losing such a small object or some other file problem. I am missing something extremely obvious here? Time machine settings show my flash drive but does not allow me to include it in my back ups...seems strange.

MacBook Pro :: Why Isn't There 512gb Flash Storage On A Retina 2.3

Jun 27, 2012

I'm toggling between the big three MBPs:  Retina display doesn't really jump at me [I'm old], but the legacy Pro with 512GB SSD is just as expensive with less RAM than the Retina 2.6.  The 2.3 is more economical but only offers 256GB flash and I already have over 300GB on my current MBP.  I am a writer and have extensive files of research, loads of music and photos [hobbies]. I don't play games on my MBP…mostly writing and some use for Keynote presentations.  I confess that I don't get the daisy-chain deal and have never used a HD for additional storage, just back-ups.  I've never had to concern myself with external storage till now. Is that a major consideration [or a steep learning curve] or am I doing the pixie-dust drill Apple marketing wants us ALL to do?

MacBook Pro :: How Much Data Can 256GB Flash Storage Hold

Jun 12, 2012

How much data can a 256GB Flash storage hold?  The only reason I haven't gone ahead with my purchase is that I'm worried that 256GB is too little.  I wish it were possible to upgrade to 512GB on the base model.

MacBook Pro :: How Come There Is No Option To Upgrade Flash Storage For 2.3GHz

Jun 13, 2012

How come there is no option to upgrade flash storage for 2.3GHz new MBP whereas you can upgrade the storage for 2.6GHZ new MBP? Does it mean you can't upgrade the storage for 2.3GHZ MBP once you buy later?

MacBook Air :: Heavy Memory Loss Storage - When Saving PDF Document In Preview

Sep 1, 2014

I am currently editing lots of pdfs and other files for notes. There is one particular big file, ca. 300 MB (part of a book). When I edit this file in Preview (underlining etc.) and save my changes, I loose almost the whole size of the file in disk space.  

Saving 10 times, that equals ca. 3 GB. Since I am a diligent "back-upper", I loose ca. 3 GB every 90 minutes. Over the last 3 days, this has consumed more or less 40 GB of my storage space. I have restarted several times and had to delete a lot of files; the sleepimage file is ca. 1 GB big only, so that is not the problem;so I have used "Disk Utility" to localize the massive space use. 

Disk utility registers the storage loss in total numbers (35 GB free, next time only 32 GB free), but not within the folders (the single sizes of the folders -Application; Library; User etc-), their sizes stay the same!what happened to my disk space. I need to restore those 40 GB they are being used by something completely useless somewhere.

MacBook Pro :: 512GB, 768GB Flash Storage Speed Tests?

Jun 25, 2012

For some reason, Apple marketing has left out a very import bit of information regarding the sale of Flash based storage.  The specs of our flash storage is and was as important as the RPMs off our mechanical drives.  As most of you know, shopping for SSDs is like wading through a sea of speed tests.  Yet for some reason, Apple is not forthcoming about the IOPS, Read, and or Write speeds of their flash media.  There have been endless reports about Toshiba and Samsung based flash media being shipped with iMacs and MBPs with different speeds.  I think the earlier brand being a slow dog most of the time.   

I called Apple yesterday and got the, we don't have that information sir.  I also send an email to feedback explaining that it's probably a good idea to let professionals who are spending nearly 4000$ USD for a rMBP to know the specs of the storage so we can know if it meets our speed needs. With all that said, I welcome all of you to post speed tests of your rMBP.  You can do this with 2 tests that I am aware of.  If anyone knows of others, please let me know.  Please also post your basic model specs, like rMBP 16GB 768GB?

1.  Reboot with no apps open

2.  Then run Blackmagic Speed Test or AJA System Test 

I'm sure the results will not be the same each time you run the test, but over a few tests, you can come up with an average.  You might not be able to run the test directly on your drive since Lion has locked us out of our own hard drives, so you might need to pick a folder in your user folder.

MacBook Pro :: Will SSD Perform As The Flash Memory

Dec 2, 2010

1) Will it perform as well as the Flash memory in a MBA? They load apps stupidly fast, will the performance of a SSD in my MBP match that? 2) Are they hard to fit?3) I know there's loads of threads about this, but which would you recommend? I will be getting one for my dad's 13" MBP as well, will they both be the same size?

MacBook Air :: How Long Will NAND Flash Memory Last

Oct 26, 2010

Was looking to buy a new laptop to replace dying old XP Dell and compliment iMac. Was thinking of a 13" Macbook Pro but have got interested and excited by this new Air. Its the instant on and portability that appeals........ but on this forums in places and elsewhere on internet (even Wikipaedia) there appears to be concerned that NAND flash memory has a definite life.... so many 1s and 0s changing before it slows right down.

Is this right... how long will it be.... can it be refreshed by copying stuff, doing something and then loading back up.... or has it to be replaced. The iFixit teardown suggests it is replaceable but at what cost. ie don't want to buy one only for the memory to give up the ghost in a year or two.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Memory Save Limit?

Hardware :: Finding MacBook Air SSD / Flash Memory Specs

Oct 23, 2010

I know that the iFixIt tear down reveals Toshiba flash chips on the 11" MBA, but I was curious to know the following specs on the 13" MBA.

Does Apple use different suppliers for the different capacities/models (i.e. Samsung, Hynix, etc.)

I could make some guesses from the benchmark tests, but would like to have hard specs.

I tried contacting Apple, but the only thing they would tell me is the capacity available for purchase. I also don't have the guidelines to reference the flash specs based on the model of the Toshiba flash.
