big, big, big, big problems, folks.
I’ve been struggling with this for a week, lost a week of productivity.
symptom was start machine, is okay for a bit during it’s start up process then BAM 1 of two things happend
1 either finder died and couldn’t be restarted
2 or entire system crashed, screen went black and froze.
the first time it happened it destroyed the ssd drive: it couldn’t be mounted and I had to spend the last week fixing it. frankly, I’m still in the middle of fixing it.
using el capitan, latest release.
This is REALLY BAD. I thought it was my SSD, I was running down blind alleys, I blamed parallels, I blamed Samsung.
But it was you. You destroyed my SSD drive. You destroyed the work of a month, maybe two, of installation and configuration. Just gone. Yeah, I am cloud backed but not image backed. So while I lost no data (well, some in Documents by accident) I lost every bit of install and configure of a massive Visual Studio Parallels REMObjects Android Studio Xamarin installation. It will take me days to get that up again.
Please stop doing that.
This was bad, bad, bad, bad, bad.
