    Ambrosia is a software company that has the following apps:

    Snapz Pro X



    Hypnoblocks (game)

    Mondo Solitaire for macs (game)

    Mondo Solitaire for iPad (game.

    I do not know these apps, but maybe there are incomplete uninstalls too if you used them once.

    Many PC users like to partition their drives, leaving a space between the OS + apps and the Users data, so when changes to the OS occur or apps, it keeps it all up near the front of the drive for better performance and thus avoids the lengthily defrag process they have to perform monthly.

    It's worth noting that modern desktop Windows (i.e., 7 and 8) automatically schedule background defragmentation of non-SSD hard disks. Users never give it a second thought anymore (not that most of them ever did in the first place).


    As for multi-partitioning, it's an obsolete methodology that continues to cause sysadmins headaches. Many a server out there in userland runs for years and an overly small boot partition can end up being a nightmare to administer. Whenever I install a new server, the first bloody thing I do with the Dell/HP default partitioning is delete it. NTFS and HFS+ work best when they have room to grow and write very large files contiguously. The more free space on a partition, the less possibility of fragmentation/performance becoming an issue in the first place.


    Optimizing only works optimally when it can deal with files that are used frequently. Usually, those are system-/application files, but occasionally they're userland files that would greatly benefit being at the fast end of the platters.

    HI dudes. I have the same op's problem. Mac pro 2008 with yosemite.

    I Can't boot in normal mode, but it's ok on safe mode.

    i've changed the hd, made a clean install, but still the same.

    Sometimes (days) it boots fine but other days not or if it boot is so sloooowww, if a type something, maybe 7 characters, it lasts about 30 seconds to show in screen.

    I'm trying to put a hd radeon 4890 to see if the problem is the graphic (because of the fact that the mac works fine in safe mode) my graphic card now is ati 2600 256mb

    i don't know what try next, i'm hopeless


    ps: sorry for my poor english, i'm from spain.

    This three has been idle for over three years. It would be best for you to start a new topic with your details, issues and perhaps include an etrecheck report for analysis. You will get more help posting an updated topic.
