Why is it running so slow?
I've been using your site for a long time and it helped me often. Thank you for the project and your contribution.
I'm writing to ask your ideas on the following problem.
I have MacBook Pro late 2011 Yosemite with SSD (Crucial M4 256) and HDD (500) in stalled in DVD slot. Until couple of days ago everything forked fine for about 1 year. But without any reasons MacBook started running very slow. I needed to wait several minutes to boot and 15-30 seconds to open a software (e.g. Word or R). I didn't happen before.
I worked in this conditions for some time but then did the following:
1. Checked and fixed drive and permissions errors.
2. Recovered from TimeMachine
3. Erased SSD partition with OS and reinstalled a new one.
Now I'm on Mac OS 10.7.5 Mavericks and Macbook is still slow: booting takes up to 3-5 minutes although it has become slightly faster while working on it but not as fast as it used to be with Yosemite.
I think that I'm in trouble, but don't have any idea what I should do.
Would really appreciate your help.
Is this a good question?
