When I migrated to SSD on my Mac mini, I kept the original 1 TB hard drive to store my old Mac OS data. That was just in the SSD migration failed. After two weeks of non-event, it was time to blow up my 1 TB hard drive. That means deleting the entire drive and using it as a backup drive for storing miscellaneous and less frequently accessed files. I’m not worried about the new SSD failing, because I have Time Machine. I can always restore the entire OS from my Time Machine backup. So, I dumped everything on the 1 TB drive and emptied the Trash Can. I took awhile, but now I have all that real estate for storage.

US Mens National Team is in the “group of death” again after the latest draw for the Copa Centenario. This seems to be the pattern every major tournament. The last two World Cups and now the Copa Centenario. It will be a tough group to get out of. I guess it’s just the luck of the draw. USA will Colombia, Paraguay and Costa Rica.
