Typos in Disk Utility 

Well, this is just sad. I went to erase a hard drive tonight and noticed something in OS X El Capitan’s new version of Disk Utility:

Here’s what the Erase sheet says:

Erasing “Time Machine” will destroy of all the data stored on it. Enter a name, choose a format.

In addition to the text being so brief it feels incomplete, it has two grammatical errors:

  1. The first sentence should read “….destroy all of the data.” It currently transposes “all” and “of.”
  2. “Enter a name, choose a format” is a comma splice. Break it into two sentences or use a semicolon.

While this may seem silly, it’s this attention to detail stuff that worries me about Apple software.

I filed a radar.
