Re: ArtMaster Pro

gholmes1936 ... I wonder if you could run Windows on your Mac?

Kristopix ... I toured most of your galleries, as a tribute to both Art Master Pro's range and your talent.

Yes, Windows on the Mac is the way to go! That's how I run any Windows-only software I need to get screenshots of, etc. I don't have a PC box.

I understand what you are saying-but-there's always a but in these circumstances isn't there? I had Windows on my Mac along with 4 external back-up hard drives. One day after booting up everything was wiped off of my externals. They could be opened okay, it's just that all of a sudden all the image files were gone.

So, I removed every trace that I could of the Windows operating system and associated files. found out that there was indeed some kind of bug in there.

No trouble since, but sure was bad losing all those files.

You can bet I hollered out CRAP!!!!!!

Re: ArtMaster Pro

I use Parallels for my virtual Windows and Linux machines (it's got to be the easiest and most painless way to do this). I've never had any problems with Windows vs. external drives, and I always have one mounted.

Please give us more details about the setup that gave you difficulty. Were you using Boot Camp? Were the externals Mac or Windows formatted? Etc.

I couldn't get Boot Camp up because my pea pickin brain couldn't understand the instructions. So you know right away I wasn't much of a candidate for using this. However I did get Parallels up and running. My hard drives were formatted for the Mac OS 10.6.X system, on a 2009 iMac 2.8 GHz computer.

Re: ArtMaster Pro

I don't prefer Boot Camp due to the fact that you have to restart into Windows (who wants to interrupt their Mac work?!).

I still can't figure what ate your images... That's why we always need to make backups!

Exactly! That's what I had been doing, but, I hadn't made a back-up in around 5-6 months at the time.

Now I have an internet back-up that I pay for as well as my local drives and DVD's.

Re: ArtMaster Pro

My approach at this time is to keep my working projects on an external 700 gig and back them up locally to my home and office computers as well as other smaller external drives, plus writing certain collections to DVD when they accumulate sufficiently.

So far so good!

The external thing didn't work for me at that time.
