Topic: Exposing macOS APFS Snapshots – How Your Mac Is Protecting Your Data in the Background

Modern Macs run on APFS, the file system that dictates how every bit of data is stored and accessed on disk or SSD. One component of APFS is the snapshots feature, where macOS is quietly making copies of your data in the background. Jeff Carlson joins us to talk about how snapshots differ from backups, how they impact the free space on your startup disk, and how you can take advantage of them.

(for non-pandemic months) The meeting is at the Metrum Credit Union, 1/3 of a mile south of Arapahoe on the east side of Holly in Centennial. The doors will open at 6 PM, and the visit time will be from 6 PM to 6:30 PM. A good time to ask questions and get advice from fellow members!

(for non-pandemic months) As always, we will meet about 5 PM at the Panera Bread on the SE corner of Holly and Orchard for a little supper.
