Did you even think to read the thread?
Your question is answered in post #7.
All storage technologies can fail. It is why we use backup software. Right?
Please note that the most common cause of data loss is "user error".
Open a separate thread with "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
What are the pros and cons of HFS+ vs APFS. Why would I prefer one of the other?
Read post #7.
Hello all at tonymacx86 !!!
Just to ask for some help.
I have started the update process from Sierra to High Sierra.
I have done all the mentioned steps (updated clover, kexts, the terminal process)
and everything was made with careful and following the instructions.
When my computer restarts and I select from the "install macOS" option in clover,
it starts very well, with a big apple in the center of the screen and the white little bar
under it, showing the process status.
My problem is that, when it has gone through about 50% the process appears to stop, and,
then, this white "spinner" appears under the white bar and start to circle around (just
like waiting for something) until the installation process enters in a "Bear Hug" and
never ends !!!!!!
By the way, let me tell you that the computer NEVER reboots several times as mentioned
in the instructions for installing High Sierra.
So, everytime, I have being forced to cancel the update process and rebooting with my
original Sierra install.
PLEASE, any ideas on how to solve this ?????? Thank in advance !!!
Same here. Very slow boot with trim enabled on APFS with non-Apple SSD hardware.
Running without TRIM patch for now. How bad it's for FS?
Formatted my hdd as apfs when I was reinstalling Mac OS, noticed no real differences, it may be slightly faster? no idea
Any other kexts you are patching apart from IOAHCIBlockStorage?
At this moment with a Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120Gb and clover trim patch working without issues. However, I keep the backup copy in HFS+... I'm not sure if I'll have any problems or not in the future.
