Applications :: How To Delete Large Amounts Of Deleted Duplicate Mp3s

Oct 21, 2010

ive got a decent sized itunes library, 20,393 songs/125.5 gbs of music in the program, but over time as i have added files a lot of times id get duplicate files so i would delete those, and when i deleted them i didnt always press the move to trash button, and just for what ever reason would sometimes press the keep file button, so now at this point after doing this for a while i now have a music folder that is 168gbs of music, when i really only have 125 in itunes so is there any program or way to automatically delete those duplicates, because it would take a rediculous amount of time to go and find and delete each one individually obviuosly.

Applications :: Mail - Incoming Messages In Large Amounts?

Nov 23, 2009

I have a 13" MBP running 10.6.2 and for some reason I randomly get Mail bringing in like 3,400 messages and i have not been able to figure our why. I have the following Mail accounts:

1. Work - this is pop and I know it can not be this account causing it as I only leave 1 day on server so there is not that many in there
2. .Mac - (mobile me) however i only have 2,784 messages in it so the numbers dont match up
3. gmail - this account only has 26 messages since i only use it for GV and syncing an Android phone

It does this very quickly for supposedly bring in that many messages and when it finished nothing has changed and i notice nothing new in my Mail accounts?

OS X :: Large Amounts Of Data Copying?

Oct 29, 2009

I have 1.9TB on one drive, 645GB on another; I want to copy all that data onto a separate 6TB drive....

What's the fastest way to do this? I have already begun w/ 2 cp -pR commands, running in different Terminal windows, but seem to be getting lower disk activity numbers in Activity Monitor than I was with a brief test of a Finder copy... is that possible?

Any suggestions? Also looking for a (relatively) efficient way to verify the copied data after the fact.

Windows On Mac :: Sync Large Amounts Of Data?

Nov 26, 2010

I use robocopy (command line copy utility built into windows) to sync ~150GB of data between multiple windows machines. I've never had any issues, it will run and check the data to make sure it is synchronized, if there are no changes it can check the 150GB in a few minutes.

Now I have a Mac 10.6 that will have a copy of the data on an HFS partition. I'm connecting to the Mac from a Windows 7 machine via file sharing in Mac to Windows. I have robocopied the data onto the Mac system. However when I re-run robocopy all the files show up as Older or Newer time stamp so it will have to recopy everything making it useless for synching just changes.

I've tried the /fft switch for use with fat32 and file systems that don't store the time as precisely as NTFS

I've tried the /dst switch to check and see if Daylight savings is messing it up.

Anyone else have this issue?

Can you suggest any utilities that you use to sync large amounts of data between mac and windows?

Does anyone know of a good application to find and delete duplicate photos. I'm trying to work with a massive photo library (40k+ images) and get rid of duplicates including thumbs created by Iphoto. I'd prefer freeware but am willing to pay if there is a particularly effective program.

Applications :: Can Automator Detect/delete Duplicate Files - Clean An Itunes Library?

Mar 8, 2009

Im new to the Mac operating system. I am proficient on a PC, but Macs have always captivated my attention. I finally gave into the Macbook. Anyways ---

The Automator application seems phenomenal in theory I just haven't learned all the ins and outs yet, but i see the concept that it was designed for (Jobs = Genius). Long story short I was streaming all of my music over from my PC and it got interrupted twice. I kept streaming to the same folder but it never prompted me to replace existing files of the same name. So I figured it would do it automatically. To my dismay that wasn't the case at all. I now have 9,000 songs and at least 4,000 of which are duplicates/Triplets. I wanted to know if there was some way to streamline the process of deleting and purging all these files out of my Music Folder/Itunes Library, Via the Automator program or any other program you know of.

Software :: How To Delete Duplicate Photos

Feb 14, 2008

I recently imported all of my unorganized picture folder mess into iPhoto in an effort to organize them. However, when importing my pictures from my camera in the past, I would upload the same picture multiple times. I didnt bother to fix it at the time, but now that its all there in iPhoto, its pretty annoying, especially with the couple thousand pictures i have on it. Is there a way (automater?) that I can find these duplicate files and delete the copies of them? A program to do this or something would be a godsend.

OS X :: Delete Duplicate Photos In Iphoto?

Nov 24, 2007

I somehow lost half my photo album and eventually searched spotlight with 'jpeg and jpg'. This not only found them, it found literally thousands more, many of them duplicates. Does anyone know if there is an easy way to restore the missing Photos. My idea is to import the lot, and then hopefully try and remove all duplicates like itunes does.

MacBook Pro :: Duplicate App Can't Delete Files?

Aug 24, 2014

I have tried two apps that detect and delete duplicate files. Both will find duplicate files of all types, and then fail to delete them. I tried first with "Duplicate Detective" and thought it must be the application's fault; then I tried "The Duplicate Finder" and received the following message: 

Failed to delete files

Please check their permission for removal.  

Support the Duplicate Detective app reviewed my console logs and said that my computer from removing files in Users/"my name"/folder. 

I tried repairing disk permissions through the disk utility and that didn't work.

Applications :: Convert Existing AAC To MP3s?

Jan 25, 2009

I am facing the fact that if I want the most versatile for my music library it is MP3. Now I have more than 200gb of AAC formated music that I want to convert to MP3 and maintain the best quality sound I can.

Older version of iTunes (pre v8) I could go to Advanced > Importing > Convert Selection to ___

Now I cannot find the Convert Selection to ___ option anywhere. In fact when I look at the help file, it refers to the same location as I was used to going to... but the import tab is no longer a tab.. its a button on the General Tab.

Applications :: Loading MP3s From CD Via ITunes?

Mar 9, 2009

I don't have an iPod, but am considering getting one because I have exceeded the 20GB capacity of my current MP3 player. Although I do multitrack recording on my Mac Pro, I know very little about the iPod, and have following questions:

1. How would I make (if it's possible) MP3's from my CD's so that I can then load the MP3's on to the iPod. Is it possible to put a CD in my Mac, and make the MP3's via iTunes, or does one have to buy (and download) the MP3's from the iTunes store?

2. Is it possible to download MP3's from my PC (yes, I have both) on to the iPod, and if so, can I use the iPod with both my PC and my Mac?

3. I seem to recall reading that if one wants to delete an MP3 from either iTunes or an iPod, one has to connect and synchronize the iPod with the Mac that has the MP3 on it (in iTunes) and then delete the MP3, i.e., you can't delete the file from the iPod without deleting it from same computer from which it was downloaded through iTunes. Is this correct?
