Apple’s ‘Mac Maintenance Quick Assist’ No Longer Recommends Periodically Repairing Permissions

Remember that goofy support document Apple posted last month, which advised periodically running Repair Permissions along with weird tips like dusting your computer and assigning your saved documents sensible file names? Well, it’s been revised, and it no longer mentions Repair Permissions. It also no longer mentions disk defragmentation or restarting your Mac every few days just for kicks.

(Thanks to Jonathan Tyrrell for pointing this out.)
