Applications :: Compressing Files To Smallest Size

May 29, 2009

So I know in Leopard and probably any OS for Mac's you can compress your files, but is there any way to compress them even more? I had a file that was 321mb's and when I compressed it, it brought it down to 317mb's. Obviously that didn't do me any good. Does anyone have a program or another suggestion?

OS X :: Dock Stuck At Smallest Size?

Mar 29, 2009

I was playing about with my settings just now, and I noticed that the Dock size slider was disabled. I tried clicking on it, and my dock got smaller. I tried again, and it kept getting smaller and smaller, even when I clicked on the large end!

I've tried restarting repairing permission, but the control is still disabled, and my Dock is still ridiculously small! What can I do?

Applications :: Time Machine Compressing / Not Backing Up Files

Mar 30, 2009

I'm using Time Machine (for the first time) to back up my system (Mac Pro w/750Gb internal drive and a firewire 750Gb external backup). However, when looking at the contents of my external backup drive after Time Machine has finished, I notice there is sizeable difference between the amount of data on my internal and external drives. To confuse matters more, I repeated the backup 3 separate times on the same internal volume (357Gb worth of data) and each time Time Machine yielded a different size backup; ranging from 343Gb to 350Gb. Each time I have "erased" the external drive using Disk Utility prior to running Time Machine.

After digging around I found at least some of the difference lies within the Movies_IDVD Projects folder. I have only a few projects but it appears that Time Machine randomly chose a few of the larger ones to compress? Either that or it did not back them up all the way. These files were roughly 2-4Gb in size on my internal and only 200kb on the backup drive. Are there other files that Time Machine is either compressing or not backing up? Should I use Time Machine at all or should I copy the files I want backed up by dragging them to the external? I would like to be able to restore my system to its current state one day if/when my internal drive craps out (including all of my apps, etc.).

Mac Pro :: Compressing Video Files And Getting Kernel Panic

Nov 6, 2008

I'm averaging about 2-3 kernel panic "crashes" daily. I took my MP to the local Apple Store. They ran all of their tests and could not find a thing wrong with it. I've purchased Tech Tool Pro. The TTP diagnostics have come up with nothing. I use machine at work primarily for video editing/compression/authoring. The kernel panic(s) seem to occur when I'm outputting or compressing video files from Final Cut or Sorenson Squeeze.

Here are some of my basic machine specs:
2 x Quad Intel Xeon
Video Card: ATI Radeon X1900
Serial ATA HDDs

Applications :: Browser With Smallest Memory Footprint?

Dec 15, 2009

Please this is not a question about whether you use Safari or Firefox.

What Browser has the smallest memory footprint for use on the MBA?

With limited ram @ 2GB I find either Safari, Firefox, Camino, etc using as much as 200MB +/- in activity monitor. Are there some more obscure browsers that use/need less memory and function just as well or almost as well?

OS X :: Won't Show Size Of Data Instead Of Size Of Files

Nov 14, 2010

All my smaller files show up as 4kb in finder. I know this is because on HFS+ that is the minimum allocation for a file, but it really doesn't help when trying to get a sense of how large files are when you're thinking of deploying them to the web, or glancing to see which are longer/which have been changed etc. is there any way to set Finder to display the size of files based on how much data is in them.

Applications :: Won't Work With Iphoto Library / Size Doesn't Match Folder Size

Dec 31, 2009

why the iphoto library file size in the finder appears to be a certain size, while iphoto itself reports a very different size. Is there any way to recover any disk space or reconcile the numbers here? Please see the attachments below, it may make a bit more sense that way. I would like to recover the disk space and if it really is a 16gb difference somewhere.

Applications :: ITunes Libary Size Not Matching Music Folder Size?

Nov 27, 2010

I'm using iTunes 9.2.1 and it states that my music library is 159.99gb with 25,994 songs, however the folder containing music files is 171.26gb with 30,309 files. This is a difference of 11.27gb and 4315 files. The folder only contains mp3 or m4a files with their respective album and band folders; no images, text files or anything else. The iTunes folder is located elsewhere. I added the folder to iTunes again to see if there were 11gb of songs I'd forgotten to add and there was no difference. I even deleted all iTunes settings and the current library and added the folder again and it is still missing 11.27gb.

I'm about 95% sure that none of my music collection is missing from iTunes so my first thought was that iTunes is just reading the file sizes and count inaccurately and it really is 171.26gb, but I'm not sure.

Can anyone think of a solution without going though my entire collection and comparing it to iTunes to see if anything is missing?

OS X :: Calculating Multiple Files Size In Finder?

Sep 3, 2009

This is one of the things I haven't figured out how to do yet on my mac. I miss this feature which was so easy in windows. Select multiple files and click properties and you get a file size count. If you do the same thing on a mac you get a number open for each file. If you need a cumulative total quickly its a pain in the butt to add each file.

What am I missing here?

Also, any way to display file size at the bottom of a finder window? When you click a file, it says "1 of X selected" and the amount of hard drive space free which is cool, but file size at the bottom would be nice to have.
