Applications :: How To Append File Names With Folder Path?

Mar 18, 2009

I'm looking for a way to rename a batch of 30,000 photos. I have renamer but I don't think it does what I need it to do. I want to append the file name with the folder path. The photos are organized in folders which give info I want to make part of the filename itself (country, city etc.)

I am sure there is a way but...don't know how. Freeware or native apple way preferred over having to buy a new program.

Applications :: Need App To Create Text File Of All Folder Names On A Hard Drive

Feb 9, 2010

I just started using an eSata cradle to start doing my backup and archiving (I'm a photographer). Once I fill up the drive I'll be putting them in a safe but I'd like to have a printout bundled with them that lists all the jobs that are on the drive (the jobs are separated and named by folder on the drive)

I could go through and write them all down manually but I'd love to have a program that could automate it for me.

I'm working on a macpro that is running OSX 10.4

OS X :: Overwriting Append Folder?

Nov 18, 2010

So I was sleep deprived (school work) and I copied a folder from an external drive to the internal one and I forgot what OS X asked me.

Now when I check the folder that I dropped my folder into (they have the same names...external drive folder is older) it overwrote the whole folder and deleted the newer files in the destination folder?

I must be doozy right now or something is going on.

Does OS X actually never append files? Even if I overwrite a folder??

Anyway to recover these files?

It's about 30 hours of work

I haven't written anything back to the drive yet so...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recover Formatted External Hard Drive With File Names And Folder Structure

May 24, 2012

I accidentally formatted my external hard drive when I was creating a Windows USB install disk with Boot Camp It was a HFS+ formatted drive with a GUID partition table and 2 partitions: one clone of my Macbook OS, and one with personal data. I'm not worried about the OS clone, I'm more concerned about getting my personal data back on the second partition.So far I've used Stellar Phoenix and Data Rescue 3. I reformatted the hard drive from FAT to HFS+ before I did these scans. Not sure if it was a good idea, but the programs wouldn't scan properly otherwise.Stellar finds my files with the original folder structure, but I can't open any of the files, even though the file sizes seem to be correct. Data Rescue partially finds the original folder structure, and also has a "Reconstructed files" section which has all my files sorted by file type and without the original file name. I really want to avoid going through all my photos, videos, etc. one by one to sort them out.

Can I still recover my files in the original folder structure? Why can Stellar find all my files basically intact, but I can't open anything? In the meantime, I'm going to try scanning with Disk Drill and FileSalvage with fingers crossed...

Applications :: How To Tag Folder Names As Album In ITunes?

Nov 7, 2010

I did a bunch of googling, and couldn't find an answer to this or how to do this except with windows-based mp3tag apps.

I have a collection of .WAV files with no tags or filenames at all, but they are all nested in folders that are named with the album the files are from. All the actual .WAV file names are just Track01, Track02, etc. Obviously if I imported these as-is it would be a disorganized disaster.

I am trying to import them into my iTunes library as ALAC lossless-compressed files.

All I would like to do is have the imported files tagged with the folder as the album name.

I can't seem to find any tag editor that will do this on a Mac. I don't want to sit here for hours in iTunes manually entering the album tag for each imported song, that would take ages. Are there any options, or do I brew a pot of coffee...?

Feb 19, 2012

I have thousands of text files that are named with random unique numerical ID in a specific folder.The problem is I want to be able to do quick sort of the files by a category.The category of each text file is always written as the fourth line of each text file. I would like to write an Applescript to append the fourth line of the text file onto the file name with a underscore in-between. (i.e. Category_1235678.txt).

Applications :: Any Way To Apply Info In ITunes To Change Original File Names

Mar 16, 2009

All of my movies on my hard drive have crazy file names. I just rename the info from within itunes. I am wondering if there is a way to apply the info in itunes to change the original file names. So that I don't have to change them all manually on my hard drive if I want them in some sort of order. Something like 'apply itunes info to original filename'. I am pretty sure it isn't possible but thought it might be worth a try.

OS X :: Is It Possible To Print A File Path?

Nov 23, 2010

I have a detailed hierarchy of folders and files that I need to print a table of contents for. Is it possible to do this through OS X (either by directly printing, or exporting to another file, etc.)? I'd hate to type out the whole thing if there's an easier way.

OS X :: File Path In Finder?

Jun 16, 2008

Is there any quick way to get a file or folder's path in a copy/pastable form from the Finder (you know, like the location bar in most other file browsers)?

I know you can right-click on the little icon at the top of the window and it'll display the parent directories in a clickable form, but that's not very useful when I need to have the actual path (when coding, for example). Dragging the little icon won't work, either, as TextMate does weird things with that.

Basically, is there some Cmd+??? combination that'll copy the path to the clipboard?

OS X :: Linux/Windows File Transfers - File Names?

Aug 13, 2009

I've got to transfer 250GB ish of files from an OSX machine (HFS+) onto a Linux EXT3 machine and a Windows NTFS machine.

The problem is that I've got lots of odd named folders/files on the OSX machine that are not compatible on the linux/windows machines.

For example :

"OLDER THAN 12/08/09" becomes "ONM6U4~U"

How am I going to get these files over properly keeping the file/foldernames as intact as possible?

ITunes :: Organizing By File Path?

Jul 22, 2010

I've always hated how itunes doesn't let you order by file path. It's really an overt ommission intended to get people to abandon their folder structures and have itunes take control. Anyways I've held off since I've built up a good system which works for me and I hoped that maybe one day it would get patched into it. Well it didn't look like they'd ever put it in so I started looking around for alternatives and I found one which works.

OS X :: How Do You Find The File Path To Mount An ISO?

Jun 21, 2009

i've no idea what i'm talking about really haha, but here's the deal! i have a download that requires steps that i've no idea what the heck they are talking about, and i think it's mostly PC instructions too so i'm totally lost, all i know is what i downloaded isn't complete. so they tell me to do this

1. Burn or mount the Application ISO using one of the many ISO utilities. ( I personally use PowerISO to mount, but daemon tools should work fine too.)

personally i don't have the slightest clue as to what an ISO is in the first place but whatever. so i look up ways to do whatever it is they are asking for macs and i get this from [URL]

If you're wondering how to mount an ISO image in Mac OS X, it is very easy. In the Terminal type the following command: hdiutil mount sample.iso with sample.iso being the path to the image you want to mount. After the checksum is completet, your ISO will appear mounted on your Mac OS X desktop - that's it. You you can actually mount virtually any other disk image type with hdiutil as well, so give .dmg .img a try too.

still no clue what anyone is talking about but ok! i find terminal which i didn't even know existed. i type in what i think is that path cause i've no idea how to find it and i get this

macs-macbook:~ mac$ hdiutil mount /User/mac/Desktop/japanese1/data/00.rsd hdiutil: mount failed - No such file or directory.

OS X Mountain Lion :: How To Find Path To Folder Listed In Spotlight

Aug 25, 2014

When I have an item listed in a Spotlight search that is in a folder I'm actually looking for, how do I figure out where the folder is located?  I often remember a document or app and want to add something to the same folder, but can't find it-- Spotlight does not give the path that I can see.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To See Path Of Current File In TextEdit (or Any App)

Feb 22, 2012

Pre-Lion the way to see the path of the file you are currently looking at (in any app, but for simplicity let's say TextEdit), was to select Save As... and it would default to the directory the file is open in. At least that's the way I did it... 

So now in Lion (which I generally like) how do you see what directory your current file is located in??

OS X Mavericks :: What Is The Correct File Path For Library

Sep 5, 2014

My MBP crashed, and I had to restore by dragging and dropping from an external hard drive.  I fear I may have put the "library" for my user account in the incorrect place.  I am trying to create and modify MS Excel Templates and am learning to do so watching videos and the file path they illustrate has the library listed after selecting a user...on my MBP I have library and users in the same category so when I go to my "user name" there is no library in the next category.  I hypothesize that is why Excel is not automatically creating a "my templates" file for the custom templates I am creating.

ITunes For Mac :: Forget File Path When Closed

Aug 19, 2014

If I change a folder name, while iTunes is working it's okay, it keeps playing the file just fine, but when I close iTunes and re-open it, it forgets the file path and make me find the path manually, then appears to be all right, but why it forgets the path when I close it? 

I mean, even if I change the folder name (path) of the song that is actually playing, nothing happens and keep playing all the songs just fine, but if I close forgets all changes...

ITunes For Mac :: Changing File Path To External Drive (XML / ITL)

Dec 8, 2014

On Mavericks, Current itunes. My iTunes library files, the folder, iTunes Library.itl , iTunes Music Library.xml and so on, are stored in the Music folder of my system on the main hard drive. 

All of the actual MP3s etc are on a separate drive, "Beagle Music". (I have iTunes set to not import and to leave my files the way I have them organized)

I've moved those to a new External, "Beagle Media".  

I would like to point iTunes to the new drive, and would GREATLY PREFER not to have to rebuild the library files from scratch. 

I TRIED editing the file path in iTunes Music Library.xml, thinking that would fix the .ITL file, but that is actually the reverse of how it works, so the XML reverted when I restarted iTunes.

OS X :: How To Input Approximate File Path Information Into Search Query?

Sep 26, 2009

The original message was too long, so here is a shorter version. Suppose I have the following file structure: Joeirthdayphotos. I want to type, "photo, joe" to get me to the "photo" folder. Is there a simple way to do something like that?


Spotlight seems to only allow users to find files but without relation to where the file might be located. This works fine if the filename is "New_York_Birth_Rate_2008.pdf". How about if it's stored as "Birth_RatesNew_York2008.pdf"? Searching for "2008.pdf" would bring up a whole host of files and one could select the one in the right folder. But what if you have a large number of files called "2008.pdf", stored under various folders (birth rate, mortality, morbidity, rain fall, humidity, crime rate, etc etc etc" and you want to narrow the search? Sure, one could use the advanced search, but this defeats the purpose of a file launcher like Spotlight.

Ideally, I want to input something like, "new york, birth, 2008" in any order and it would search for all folders and files with similar names, sorted by placing ones with more matched terms in terms of the file path. Is there an input method to do this? Surely this is a common scenario?

Here's another example, "Sales Person ABronx2009SeptInsurance Plan A.pdf". Now imagine I have 200 sales persons, and 50 areas. I want to type "richard, longevity plus.doc, bronx" to narrow the list. Sure, I can use advanced search, but as I said, this defeats the purpose of spotlight.
