Mar 25, 2012   //   by NG   //   MacOSx Tips  //  No Comments

While working with Lion OSx you may sometimes find yourself in difficult situations like disk utility reported HD errors, file system is corrupt, etc etc. which requires you to boot your system in recovery mode. Now while working with one such situation when I found one of my jpeg file was found corrupt, I enquired disk utility and it reported “Incorrect number of file hard links” error, now when i tried rebooting Lion OSx in recovery HD mode using instructions provided by Apple i.e. Restart your mac and keep “command +R” pressed until Apple logo appears; now while dong this I always got stuck At grey screen with “no entry” signboard.

Iphone ‘Restore backup’ means data restore or IOS version restore?

Nov 27, 2011   //   by NG   //   IOS and iPhone Tips  //  1 Comment

When you configure new iPhone, it will ask you to setup a new iPhone or restore from a backup. Now if you are on older IOS version whereas backup is from newer IOS version then you will suspect what now? will it restore the data only or IOS? (basically such confusion arises in mind of jailbreakers 😉

The answer is, it will restore only data and neither IOS version nor firmware will be affected, that’s a great news, isn’t it! :)

Hope your doubts might be cleared on what IOS data restore does.
