Applications :: Won't Find Program To Organize All Files

Mar 18, 2009

I have a bunch of music on my computer that isn't properly named, like for instance:

Flo Rida - Right Round is named: right round flo rida.

This is cause I didn't care before and now I do. I also have a lot of videos on my computer, mostly personal, that I'd like to rename. I tried doing it one by one (hitting enter/return key, then changing the name) but it's taking to long.

Is there a program that I can do it? Sorry if this was discussed already, not quite sure what to search.

Applications :: Program That Can Find Duplicate Files?

Jan 7, 2009

I have a program that can find duplicate files. What my questions is if I get an email from someone and then I forward it to someone now I have a duplicate one in my inbox and another in my sent. If I delete the one in my sent then when I open it the attachment will not show. Is there a way for it to just store the file once and then create an alias pointing to the main file.

Another example: If I attach a photo from iPhoto to an email there again is another duplicate. I would much rather Mail send the photo and create an alias to the original photo in iPhoto thus creating no duplicates.

I hope that was not confusing.

I want a program that will find duplicates and then keep 1 and create alias's for the one's deleted.

I know this is not all cases of duplicate files but mainly my Mail has way to many duplicates.

Applications :: Won't Find Way To Organize ITunes

Nov 20, 2009

I just wiped out my xp machine and installed win7. I back everything up and iTunes was put back on and I dumped all my data back on for it. I have a mix of music from cd's and music from iTunes (purchased). I have my music all in the music folder but it's all mixed up and I can't tell which songs are actually being used in iTunes if that makes sense. So to help things, I told iTunes to copy the file into it's own folders. Then I told it to do the new folder structure, music, movies, ringtones, etc. Anyways, it seems all is well, however I can't tell which files are purchased and which are not.

If I drag a music file into iTunes, will it copy that file into iTunes and organize it? What happens if a copy already exists, will there be duplicates now? What is the best way to organize all this so I don't go insane and can clean up the mess. I am thinking of copying my backup back over to undo the recent "organization" and go from there.

Applications :: Won't Organize Photos With Folders / Can't Find Apps

Aug 24, 2010

I'm looking for a photo management program that will organize my photos using folders for events, so if I ever decide to switch programs, it will be easy because it's all organized already. I currently have iPhoto, but it doesn't seem to create folders in the "Pictures" directory, so I doubt switching to another program from iPhoto will be simple. Do any of you know of an app that does what I want?

Software :: What Program Do You Use To Find Duplicate Files?

Nov 3, 2007

I found this program called Tidy UP! and it appears to be very good. But before I go through and starting massive deletions, I wanted some feedback as to what programs people use to find and delete their oldest duplicate files.

I was on a Plane organizing my files and evidently never sync'd back up fully from the hotel before getting back home and using my iMac. So now I have a big mess to clean up.

Applications :: Unable To Find Backup Program / Customizable Program For Backup?

May 28, 2009

I'm looking for an app that will allow me to specify which folders I want to copy to my external drive, updating existing files within it and copying new ones.

I don't want to backup settings, my whole harddrive nor make a bootable backup. Just something to backup what I want to backup and where.

Not sure if Time Machine can do that, but it wants me to reformat my external before I can even find out..and considering how much is on there, I really don't want to have to remove that all elsewhere while doing so. [Don't think I could anyway, none of my internal drives have that much space.]

So, does anyone know of a relatively painless backup app that could do simply what I want? Doesn't sound all that complicated in comparison to some of the more convoluted backup apps I keep finding.

IMac :: Unable To Organize Folders / Can't Find Options

Sep 11, 2010

Four years ago I bought the iMac I am using right now, I was a PC user (actually used Macs in the 90s) and I never knew if I was doing things properly. Since I am buying a new iMAc next week I need to know how to organize folders.

In my current iMac I have all my applications in the applications folder, I think that is ok. But for example, for my Photoshop and Flash projects I have made a folder in the Macintosh HD with my name and inside that folder I have many other folders. How should I organize my work? Should I put them in the documents folder or what?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Organize All Movies / Can't Find Settings

Jul 25, 2009

A few years ago I decided to put all my DVD's in storage and rip them in divx/h264 format to an external HD that I plugged into my PS3 for easy access. The problem is that when my GF and I want to watch a movie, I have to explain each movie and we choose one based on the title without access to the movie cover or any meta data. I was wondering if there was a program akin to itunes that would go through my hard drive and (with some help with me) identify each movie and find the cover art etc. I don't know how automatic this will be. I don't mind spending some time assisting the program but I don't want to go and do it by hand.

If you find a windows software I can run it on virtualbox as well.

MacTheRipper allows me to put the DVD files on hdd, but then...

Applications :: Program To Find And Remove Lower Quality Music?

Aug 1, 2010

I have recently started to re-rip most of my music collection in flac but as a result I am ending up with many duplicates. I have found many programs such as MrClean that find duplicates of songs but I do not want to accidentally delete the high quality mp3's or flac files. Is there any program that can do this for me? I would prefer it free but I would be willing to pay 10 dollars or so if the program is legit.

OS X :: How To Organize Files / Can't Arrange By Name

Oct 6, 2010

I've been a long time windows user and just last week got my first mac! (macbook pro core i5) and so far I'm loving everything about it. Altought I do have some vices I brought with me from windows and I wanted to see if you guys could help me out. On windows I was used to arranging my files automatically by name, and windows would organize it first the folders and then the files itself...all by name.
On mac, I do know how to arrange my files by name, but for example, on my documents folder I have a mix of files (txt,docx,ppt) and folders.
I wanted the folders appearing first (by name) and then the files (also by name)

ITunes For Mac :: Trying To Organize Library And Files

Aug 30, 2014

I am trying to organize my iTunes library and files.  I have a question about the 2 files listed below.  I understand iTunes media is like the master file, but what is "my music" file  and  if i move files there from iTunes media/music, do i need to make a copy of these files and if i make a copy,  is this creating a duplicate file taking up memory space or is this an index? 

Mac HD/user/music/ itunes/ iTunes media 
Mac HD/user/music/my music

Software :: Won't Work With ILife To Organize Files

Dec 13, 2007

I've recently moved from Windows to Mac. Anyway, I've noticed that the iLife apps (mostly iPhoto and iTunes) have the option to let them handle the media files for me. I'm trying to decide if I would be better having them do that for me. For example, in iPhoto - I see that if I don't let it copy every photo I import into its own folder - It won't add ColorSync profiles (does it matter?)

On the other side, it would be more difficult moving into different media organization software if I let the iLife apps do the organization by themselves.

MacBook Pro :: How To Organize Files After Installing SSD In Optical Bay

Dec 8, 2014

I just installed an SSD into my optical drive bay, as well as upgrading my RAM (from 4 Gigs to 8) of my late 2008, MBP 15".  I am booting it up for the first time, since installation, and, now need to re-org my files so that the MBP makes optimal use of the new SSD and RAM. 

Should I now migrate all my files from my old HD (still in its bay) onto my new SSD?  If so, what is the best way to do so? 

Well, now that I've booted up, the MBP doesn't even see the new SSD?  I made sure I installed it as closely as possible to the OWC instructional video. 

Is there a step after installing that I need to do?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Custom Organize Files/folder In Finder?

Jun 22, 2012

I don't like the way that finder arranges my files and folders.  I have tried all the arrangements and none of them "flow" for me.  What I would like to do is to be able to put my files / folders where I want them.  I like to group similar folders together and put the most important files/folders at the top.  Now this isn't an exhaustive list of how I want to arrange them.  Its more about where my eyes go and what I want to see.  I am a new mac user so maybe this is a really simple fix that I don't know about.
