    It's getting worse.

     

    In Mountain Lion It's not any more possible to sync notes between the Mac and the iDevices without iCloud!

    My text messages are appearing on all my external devices.  I sold my iPod on ebay and the guy can read all of my messages and respond to them.  This is a huge invasion of privacy.  I shut off the iCloud feature on my phone but it doesn't seem to work.  What in gods name can I do?????

    Sign out of iCloud.

     

    Next time you sell a device reset it before you do.

    Change you iCloud password.

    Backup your data, sign out of iCloud, restore your data.

     

    I back up data using Time Machine on an external HD. What I don't understand is how to restore the data once I sign out of iCloud. You say this isn't rocket science, but it also isn't obvious how to proceed to restore everything piece by piece. Is there a simple way to know exactly what to restore (how to restore the correct files) from one's Time Machine backup?

  • Csound1 Level 8 Level 8 (44,250 points)

    Which data are you concerned for?

  • MIWAKO8 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Do I understand correctly that if I log into iCloud on the Web, I can see everything iCloud has recorded from my HD? If so, then it's Mail, Calendar, and Notes I am concerned with saving/restoring to my HD.

  • Csound1 Level 8 Level 8 (44,250 points)

    Then export your data to the desktop and restore it after signing out.

     

    Mail

    Mailbox Menu>Export Mailbox

     

    Calendar

    File>Export Calendar Archive

     

    Notes

    No export facility, will need to be recovered from Time Machine.

    On your computer turn off iCloud

    If it firsts asks to delete items (Contacts, Calendars, Notes, etc.) on your computer, select Yes.

    Then turn iCloud back on to sync items from iCloud to your computer.

  • MIWAKO8 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Mail

    Mailbox Menu>Export Mailbox

     

    Calendar

    File>Export Calendar Archive

     

    Notes

    No export facility, will need to be recovered from Time Machine.

     

    So with exporting I'll have a file or folder on my desktop? After turning off iCloud, how do I use that file or folder to restore the data--is it just a matter of clicking on it?

     

    To find Notes in Time Machine, do I just find it in Applications and choose "restore"?

     

    Sorry, these questions probably sound dumb, but this is all new and strange to me.

    But I want to turn iCloud off and leave it off. If I turn iCloud on again to sync the data back to my computer, won't that data just be deleted yet again when I turn off iCloud again afterward?

  • Chris CA Level 9 Level 9 (77,970 points)

    If the data is on your computer, turn off iCloud.

    When it asks to delete the data on the computer, select No.

     

    Now the data is on your computer & iCloud is off.

  • MIWAKO8 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    When it asks to delete the data on the computer, select No.

     

    That doesn't seem to be an option. When I click "sign out of iCloud" I get the option to save contacts, but then I get a message saying "If you stop using iCloud for Calendars& Reminders, calendars and reminders stored in iCloud will be deleted from this Mac." And the only two options available are then "cancel" or "Delete from Mac." Nothing is mentioned about Mail or Notes.

     

    This is really confusing.

    Calendars can be restored by clicking on the exported file. Mail (if it is an iCloud account) is always stored on the server so will not need restoring and I choose not to use Time Machine so someone else will have to tell you the exact procedure for that.
