After the server deletes that data, all iCloud Documents & Data you previously used on OS X v10.9 and earlier or iOS 7 and earlier will be copied on the server over to the OS X v10.10/iOS 8 version of iCloud Documents & Data. Your devices using Developer Preview 1 will then re-upload their copies to the servers. If you delete those copies on your Mac before they are uploaded to the servers, and if you don’t have a backup of them, those documents will be lost. Documents and data managed on earlier releases of OS X and iOS will not be affected by any of this.
The Web UI for managing iCloud Documents & Data does not show the documents and data managed by systems running Developer Preview 1. Documents and data synced with previous operating systems will be displayed.

Auto-Submission of Diagnostic and Usage Data
By default, OS X v10.10 Developer Preview builds automatically send anonymous diagnostic and usage data back to Apple. This includes information about crashes, freezes, kernel panics, and information about how you use Apple and third-party software, hardware, and services. This information is used to help Apple improve the quality and performance of its products and services. The preference is cleared in this seed. This will allow the collection of anonymous diagnostic and usage data to help deliver a high quality release for our customers. If necessary, this setting can be disabled in the Privacy tab in the Security & Privacy preferences pane.

        Sorry to ask this here, but I’m trying to use the AppleHDA8Series.sh script to patch AppleHDA audio, but I’m receiving this errors:
