Was looking at free disk space on my MacBook (which, since Mojave, has
always been less than the sum of used+snapshots), and tripped across
something new: DataVaults. TL/DR, unless you turn off System Integrity
Protection in the firmware, Apple apps can create data stores that
no other software can access. Not for backups, not for privacy scrubbing,
not even for running a simple
stat() call as root. I don’t even know
why Mail.app has a secret vault, but it does, and it’s not the only
I do not like this.
Markdown formatting and simple HTML accepted.
Sometimes you have to double-click to enter text in the form (interaction between Isso and Bootstrap?). Tab is more reliable.
