Optimiser Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Article version 1.5 Lion, espace disque et Time Machine. Depuis Leopard, Time Machine permet de sauvegarder automatiquement à intervalle régulier votre travail et plus généralement tout votre disque dur. Pour un ordinateur portable qui n'est pas connecté en permanence à un disque externe ou réseau, les sauvegardes automatiques étaient interrompues, et l'icône de Time Machine affichait un inquiétant point d'exclamation. Avec Lion, quand Time Machine est activé et qu'un portable n'a pas son disque de secours à proximité (et monté), les sauvegardes se font désormais en local, de manière à ne pas perdre l'historique des versions et des fichiers. Quand le disque de sauvegarde est disponibles, toutes ces sauvegardes locales se déversent d'un coup et se vident dans le disque externe, libérant de l'espace sur le portable. Mais que se passe-t-il si le disque Time Machine n'est pas disponible avant un bon bout de temps, et que l'on a un petit SSD ?
