What gear uses Brandon Woelfel ?

Brandon Woelfel has become in a very short time a phenomenon on Instagram. The look he gives to his shots, is immediately recognizable. He plays a lot on pink and blue tones, a lot of accessories as well as on strong depth of field: the bokeh.

Correct the macOS error: snap_metadata_val object (): invalid extentref_tree_oid (0x0)

Your macOS drive is a mess, the system seems to idle and the fan tends to panic more than reason? Your TimeMachine backup no longer ends?

You went to High Sierra and converted your disk to APFS?

Start in “Repair” mode (Command + “R” all the way through the boot phase), run the disk parser on your hard disk and it is likely that you get the following error:

snap_metadata_val object (oid <aléatoire>): invalid extentref_tree_oid (0x0)

or

Snapshot metadata tree is invalid

To repair that, follow this guide :

Restart your system normally and in a terminal prompt, list the snapshots created :

$ tmutil listlocalsnapshots /
com.apple.TimeMachine.2018-03-20-112749 (dataless)
com.apple.TimeMachine.2018-03-21-174756
com.apple.TimeMachine.2018-03-22-074442

If the list shows a dataless snapshot like above, delete it:

$ tmutil deletelocalsnapshots 2018-03-20-112749
Deleted local snapshot '2018-03-20-112749'

and the problem is solved !
