-  * **Note to Mac users:** The security settings in newer Mac OS versions have been altered to by default disallow users from casually opening and running .dmg executables that are not from Apple itself. When attempting to open the Greenstone binary .dmg file, if it pops up an error warning about security, you will need to set up the Security on your Mac to allow you to run .dmg files downloaded from the internet. Otherwise the Greenstone mac binary will not run. To do this, Go to your Mac's System Preferences. Under "​Personal",​ select Security & Privacy. In the General tab, tick "Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere",​ then confirm that you want to "Allow From Anywhere"​. You'll need to be admin to do this, otherwise click on the padlock at the bottom left of the Security & Privacy tab and log in as admin.+  * **Note to Mac users:** The security settings in newer Mac OS versions have been altered to by default disallow users from casually opening and running .dmg executables that are not from Apple itself.

-When you've built a collection of documents, you may discover that there appears to be a copy of all these documents in the collection'​s //import//, //​archives//​ and //index// subfolders and wonder whether Greenstone could really be so  inefficient with space as to keep 3 copies ​to everything. As it happens though, Greenstone uses **hard-links** both on Linux and **Windows**,​ in order to keep just one set of your documents. Then it simply hardlinks to these, instead of making copies. +When you've built a collection of documents, you may discover that there appears to be a copy of all these documents in the collection'​s //import//, //​archives//​ and //index// subfolders and wonder whether Greenstone could really be so inefficient with disk space as to keep 3 copies ​of everything.
