Maccast Loop – Episode 046
In this episode we talk about recent issues with using TimeMachine, AirDisks, and Time Capsule. Specifically, we discuss issues with TimeMachine disks filling up and what steps you can take to troubleshoot this common problem. We go over how TimeMachine fits into an overall methodology for performing backups and look at other tools that help round out your entire backup strategy. In this show we also take a look at using your Mac for business, discuss cool Mac business apps, and talk about using your Mac for banking and preparing your taxes.

    I wonder if there’s any help for this:

    I switched over tom OS X 10.5.2 and promptly noticed that GarageBand was no longer able to record from my Samson C1U USB mike because it gets “echo and noise’ when I try it.

    I kept a mirror of 10.5.1 on a separate drive so i limited the damage to having to boot up into it when I have to record my podcasts, but its still disturbing that Apple has not noticed this problem (I have encountered someone else who is having the same problem on the forums and we can’t be all that rare.)

    Have you heard of this and of any fix for 10.5.2 so I could continue recording without having to re-boot? (Into the same OS!)
