Sah-weet... found a port of MenuMeters
fixed for 10.11+.
As an aside, I installed a second SSD in the Mac mini. It was scary!! The iFixit guide
didn't prepare me for how small those connectors are. Hurt my eyes trying to see the pins on those connectors. This is definitely no "pc building" material. Gives an appreciation for why small is not cheap. Thankfully after three hours of super careful manipulation it booted without issues.
@pm215 (re: backups)
My preferred approach is to backup just my data. I put everything in a few select folders like Music, Backup (configs), Documents, etc. And just sync those to external drives.
However it takes a ton of time to install, update, and configure the OS with all the essential settings. On Windows, this is particularly painful so I don't want to do it twice. So for Windows I used the "whole disk" approach, and made a backup with NortonGhost utility on a USB drive. However I made a 40 GB partition purposely for that, which fits Windows plus a few big apps like Photoshop.
But in reality, I never needed that backup.
So my solution is somewhere in between, as I have no use for continuous full-disk backups:
1- I ideally I'd want to make a full backup now or very soon, before I start installing big apps. So in theory even though the drive and single partition is 500 GB, I would have a small backup as currently only 14 GB is in use.
2- And then going forward I'll continue backing up my data only, with a simple "sync folders" solution like DirSyncPro.
What software can I use for 1 ?
Come to think of it unlike my Windows solution, if I restore such a backup it would erase everything else on the drive (single, large partition).. but that's OK I suppose. I have all my data backed up.
