Restored from a Time Machine backup, and El Capitain added Maps, iBooks, and Photos back to my Dock.

@Bagelturf It *says* it's going to make a new encrypted partition with the full size. Just doesn't do it.

Otherwise, the space for the all but one partition just disappears.

Looks like to merge encrypted partitions with Disk Utility you have to first make a merged unencrypted partition.

@notio I really think it would accrue to their long-term benefit, but it's just not a priority.

@grynspan Oh, the other file manager one is that Cocoa equivalent to FSPathReplaceObject() wasn't working for me. It's on my list to Radar.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan And now that the code is gone, I’m not likely to put it back to verify a potential fix.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan That kind of Radar is low-priority for me to file because I already had to work around it in my app.

@grynspan I actually had to stop calling FSUnmountVolume on 10.11 because it stopped working…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Yep, although in this case it's a background thread so I don't really need async.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Can't send Apple events until 10.11. (I haven't yet checked whether that works for my purposes.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan If only there had been an API for reading those files years ago…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Yes, in theory those will work. Not a drop-in replacement because they're async.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan I'm doing that, too, of course. But at one point needed to read files with only resource fork. Perhaps no longer relevant.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan The other obvious case is AppleScript…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan I don't think there are Cocoa APIs for mounting or unmounting volumes.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Reading/writing resources for .webloc files and disk image license agreements.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan I think there may be a few cases where I need the old file system structs even if using the modern APIs. Don't recall details ATM.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan I think there were also some cases where NSRunningApplication either didn't have the info I needed or didn't work as advertised.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Is there a Cocoa replacement for TransformProcessType()? If so, I don't think it was available for the version I’m targeting.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan Some resource manager and process manager stuff. Also file manager, but I think most or all of that could be migrated.
