MacVoices #1174: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac for the Second Time

Joe Kissell is back to discuss another in his trilogy of Mac performance books, this time covering the newest revision to Take Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac. Things keep getting more complex, so your troubleshooting skills have to match. Joe discusses how his own experiences drove this revision, how he selects what topics to cover, and why it is important to learn how to think like a troubleshooter. To get started, Joe talks about corrupt pref files, Time Machine problems and why running Disk Utility isn’t necessarily the second thing to do when a problem arises.
