Re: Freeway7 & Mojave

Hi Peter,

Freeway 7.1.4 works fine on Mojave 10.14.1 (apart from the first time warning it’s not 64bit)

Hi Bert,

And indeed anyone who has moved to Mojave

I’m curious how you got on with upgrading to Mojave.

I’m thinking to move to Mojave, but am hesitating before committing to the change!

I second that. I’ve been using it since it first updated and have encountered no problems at all.

I just upgraded yesterday to OS 10:14 and have had no problems with it and Freeway Pro 7.1.4.

Off topic and unrelated, but I did have a hiccup in the Mojave upgrade with my Documents and Desktop folders. They ended up in iCloud, rather than on my desktop. About an hour with Apple tech support got it worked out. I had to reload the content of those folders from my TimeMachine to my Mac. She said she had received other calls with the same problem. I don’t think I can summarize the issue (I’m fairly low tech). But if you’re upgrading to Mojave, I suggest that you have rock-solid backups of your stuff before hitting the “Upgrade” button.

That’s a feature, not a bug. I use it all the time. It allows me to have my Documents and Desktop folders on whatever Mac I’m using if I’m logged into iCloud. I can also access those folders from my iOS devices. Also, it’s kind of* an off-site backup. If a tree falls on this iMac, those files won’t be lost with this computer. I can pick up another Mac, log into iCloud, and there they are.

*I still do real backups with both Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner including two drives that are rotated off-site, so don’t worry about me.

Thanks Joe. Good input. The Apple tech support lady said she was “old school” like me — she wanted her Documents and Desktop folders to be literally on her Mac, not just representing what was in the cloud.

Since I only use my one home-based computer, I don’t miss that nice portability function you described. But I do back up to 3 at-home devices. Plus I send key files and folders, including Documents and Desktop, up to Google Drive storage, so as to have off-site backup.
