Actually I don’t know how I’ve been supporting my every day more and more slow laptop (yes, it is a 2012 macbook pro). A couple of weeks ago, and coinciding with a very desperate Sunday for myself, I decided to update the OS of my Mac. I have to admit that initially I was a bit skeptical about upgrading from zero (I’ll talk below about that), but now I think: “Why don’t I did it much before??”
Upgrading from zero or technically as IT like speak “a clean installation” means erase all of your data and software from your hard drive and installing above it a new operating system. In my case it has been the new Mac’s OS Sierra, a recent update of the former El Capitan. It seems like Apple wants to incorporate Spanish names into their computers.
Of course I did a backup of all of my data and software. But not all of it, because doing a clean installation helps you also to move into the trash many old files that you forgot about their existence. And this is what I did.
As a result, and after employing half day, the new macOS Sierra was successfully installed in my Mac. It really needed a complete cleaning because even replacing installing 16 GB RAM memory 5 months ago, it doesn’t works as it was expected… So I can say that I have a new laptop! Now it runs perfectly, smoothly, and without taking more 5 minutes to resuming it 🙂
It will be very difficult to list all of the forums and webs I’ve visited to get confidence for upgrading the OS system, but I would like to thank all people who without waiting anything are providing helpful tips for semi-literates Mac users like me!
