macos – How to change the language used on Mac App Store? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/23

This worked for me as suddenly – after upgrading to Sierra – the App Store was all Dutch where previously it was English:

After I fought with the issue for a few hours, I found the solution.

  1. Open Mac App Store and log out of the account.
  2. Restart your Mac.
  3. Log in to the account again.

Thanks [WayBack] Blaszard for the above answer at [WayBackmacos – How to change the language used on Mac App Store? – Ask Different

Note that this syncs the language in the App Store with the one you’ve set on the OS X level; for changing that, see [WayBackmacOS Sierra: Change the language your Mac uses

macos – How can I manually delete old backups to free space for Time Machine? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/23

For me the easiest is on a sudo terminal (so I can omit the sudo part in the below commands), but if you’d do it “rather safe then sorry”, you can go from the fine-grained individual backup level:

sudo tmutil delete /Volumes/drive_name/Backups.backupdb/mac_name/YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss

step by step

sudo tmutil delete /Volumes/drive_name/Backups.backupdb/mac_name

all the way back to

sudo tmutil delete /Volumes/drive_name/Backups.backupdb

Incidentally, the tmutil documentation is now regarded as legacy (I’m not sure why) so before it goes away, I’ve archived it:

[Archive.is] https://developer.apple.com/legacy/library/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man8/tmutil.8.html

It’s not at http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/Manpages/man8/tmutil.8.html as for instance [WayBack] man tmutil … – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+ referred to a few years back.

Anyway:
