I've had my iMac for a year now- it's OS is Mountain Lion, I downloaded but didn't install Mavericks - and I've now downloaded but as yet haven't installed Yosemite.
I've ran all available updates and verified my disk- everything appears ok with no problems reported on verification. I back up via time machine to a 2TB AirPort Extreme Time Capaule.
Is there anything else I should do to ensure a problem fee Yosemite install?
Cheers

Same here I had Mavericks on my iMac and upgraded to Yosemite without
Anybproblems whatsoever.It looks as though you have gone through all of the
Right procedures etc so it's now up to you to decide if you want to upgrade.

Did you do a clean install Rob or did you install over your existing OS?
Also - another question, does anyone running OSX Yosemite print with a Canon Pixma Pro 9500 MK II - and has their been any problems ?

Hi Chant I run Yoesimte, for me it was the least troubled update of any of Apple's, my only issue was as with all the updates, WiFi went to a crawl and dropped off constantly but that got sorted, since then there has been a WiFi update. I run an Epson printer and straight after downloading Yoesimte there was a download to update my printer, so pretty much a trouble free download.
Do I like Yoesmite, it's so so I preferred Maverick

I installed over my existing mavericks with no problems.And like you i back up to a Time Capsule so i never had any reservations about upgrading.
I use a Canon Pixma MG7150 and had no issues at all with it

There have been a lot of reports from people who use Aperture for their processing that NIK software can't be used since upgrading to Yosemite.........Google are working on a fix.

Thanks for that info rogerfry. I don't use aperture, I use CS6 with the NIK software plug in, and I haven't seen any reports of that not working.
Ive seen reports that with Mavericks some of the paper profiles particularly Fine Art were not working for the Canon Pixma Pro 9500 Mk II. I haven't seen any reports so far that there is a problem with this printer and Yosemite, but it doesn't hurt to ask if any member here has encountered a problem.
Thanks for the replies so far, Im a believer in if it aint broke don't try to fix it, hence why I didn't install Mavericks ( particularly after reading about some of the problems with the printer), but seeing as this is now the second big OS X upgrade Im thinking perhaps I ought to install it.

Be careful to check that all your apps are supported by Yesomite. E.g. you will need to buy the latest version of parallels if you use this to run windows on your Mac. Also, be sure that when you install you choose NOT TO activate FileVault. Once active this will encrypt everything that goes to your hard drive - as I understand it this includes scratch disk data. The effect is to slow your machine to a crawl. Apple advise me that for some reason this option is set to on as default.

Finally, although I am a big fan of Mac, I won't be installing the Yesomite update on my iMac. I have opted to install it on a late 2011 Mac Book Pro and the machine is running significantly slower than before - despite Apple advising me there is noting wrong and Yesomite is compatible with older units than mine. Initially I had made the mistake I mention above re: file vault. This necessitate a clean re-install - thankfully i had my data backed up.

The keyboard driver file updates are what you guys need to worry about. Grin Barely one of you managed to get through a post without missing letters or completely mistyping or misspelling words.

Still unsure whether it's a doddle to install "Yesomite", or a "dawdle" to install Yosemite

What do you expect from Apple fans? We expect everything to be perfect. Tongue

p.s. not difficult to get it right when the correct spelling's at the top of the page though is it.
