Final Cut Pro X :: Move Library To Separate Hard Drive Without Losing Any Links Or Preferences?

Dec 7, 2014

I've noticed that my main hard drive is filling up fast with videos, and I'd like to move my libraries on to a separate hard drive. Is this possible without losing any links or preferences? Is it as simple as moving the libraries in the finder, and if so will all the links follow the library to the new location?

Final Cut Pro X :: Rename External Hard Drive Without Losing Links To Media?

Dec 1, 2014

I have a new Mac Pro, OS X version 10.9.5, running FCPX version 10.1.3. I have copied all of my data from a 1T external hard drive to a new 4T external hard drive, but FCPX doesn't recognize my media files unless I rename the new drive to that of the old one. The problem is I want to continue using the old one. Is there an easy way to relink my files and keep the original name of the new drive?

OS X :: How To Move ITunes Library From External Hard Drive

Jun 22, 2009

I want to get a mac but one thing that concerns me is my itunes. I have a massive library and if I get a mac I will need to copy the library to my external hard drive from my pc then copy it again to the mac. How could I do this without losing my playlists, rating etc? And also if you have all your photos in iPhoto can you access them without opening iPhoto? If you can how? Because I have played around on Macs in the Apple Store and couldn't see where they would be!

Applications :: Can I Move Itunes Music Library To External Hard Drive?

Jan 28, 2008

I recently moved my music library to an external library by changing the pathway in Edit/Preferences/Advanced and then consolidating the library. Everything worked for a while but now when I open itunes it is not able to find all the files. Bizarrely for a lot of albums it can find one or two of the songs but the rest all get the "Unable to locate original music file" error message. The music is all there on the hard drive but I don't want to have to manually locate each one. Does anyone know what is causing this or have a script to locate the rest of the music automatically?

Intel Mac :: 2011 Time Capsule & External Hard Drive - Move Library Onto One Of These?

Apr 8, 2012

I'm a first time contributor so please forgive me if I seem a little "wet behind the ears"...I have a 2011 iMac (which replaced my 2006 G5 iSight model) and a 500gb Time Capsule.I have my iTunes Library (which is approximately 150gb) on the Time Capsule but, given the relatively modest 500gb on the capsule there is not enough room to back up my computer.I have been looking at 2tb external firewire hard drives and I am hoping to move my iTunes library onto one of these and then use the capsule to back up my computer with Time Machine (the Mac has an internal 500gb hard drive). I'm hoping this will be a relatively straightforward task! The downside with this is of course, I will not have a back up of my iTunes library...with the hardware that i have does anybody have any advise or better ideas!?

MacBook :: Move ITunes Library Back To It After Swapping Out Internal Hard Drive?

Apr 30, 2012

If you want to do modify or upgrade a Macbook you Should first back up your music, documents, photos etc to an external hard drive. That much I did know. And lucky for me because a few later I spilt wine on the keyboard. (Computers are not wine oriented). Lucky for me it was saved by a Mac expert. The iTunes library which also includes non-Apple purchases is sitting in an external LaCie 1tb Rugged external hard drive. And what I want to do is transfer/import the iTune library Back into the Macbook. Sure it probably sounds easy to a vetran computer person or even to someone who grew up with computers but to me it's like speaking Cantonese.

Final Cut Pro X :: Use Move Library Control In File Menu?

Sep 12, 2014

I have foolishly allowed a Library to build up on my boot disk and wish  to move it to an external. 

I know I can shutdown FCP X and copy it across manually but I would like to use the "Move Library" control in the File Menu. 

For some reason it's greyed out in spite of me selecting the Library.

Final Cut Pro X :: Sharing Library On Two Machines / Two Hard Drives?

Sep 3, 2014

On Final Cut Pro 7, I would have my computer with an external hard drive with footage and I would edit on that. I would then email the small project file to a co-editor who would pick up where I left off. It was a very fast baton pass because he had his own computer with a clone of my external hard drive with the footage. We would pass the baton back and forth all the time. 

I am trying to figure out how I can do this in Final Cut Pro X. I understand you can transfer/copy the library, but that would involve copying 100s of GBs at a time. Possibly TBs. And please note that I'm not just looking to copy sequences alone (or "projects" as they're now called in FCP X). In FCP7, the project file would contain all organization, labeling, tagging, etc of all clips, as well as all sequences. 

Is there a way two pass the baton in the way I am looking for? This is imperative to my workflow.

OS X :: Hard Drive Slowly Losing Space

Oct 27, 2009

I'm running an intel Imac 2.16ghz c2d with 3 gigs memory and 250 gig hard drive. Here's how it started. I was surfing on the Flock browser one day, and then all of a sudden, my hard drive space was full! I wasn't downloading anything. I checked my log folder in the library and lo and behold, there was almost 2 gigs stored in the console folder! What? Anyway, I cleaned it out and my Mac is now under routine maintenance via OnyX. I also use virus barrier x5 and nothing is wrong with my Mac. I also run disk inventory x and run activity monitor. Now, I got my hard drive space back at 200.37 gigs. But sometimes when I reboot, my hard drive shows it at 200.48, then as time goes by while I surf, it slowly decreases to 200.27 gigs, then it will slowly go back up to 200.37 gigs, and so forth. I'm not downloading anything, just surfing. Has this happened to you guys before? Is the virtual memory causing this? Are there any cure for this besides formatting the hd again? What's going on?

Final Cut Pro X :: Hard Disk Where Library Is Located May Be Full / Unavailable

Jun 29, 2014

I recently was editing a project and this message popped up: "The hard disk where your library is located may be fullor unavailable or permissions may have changed.To avoid losing your work, quit Final Cut Pro." I proceeded to quite Final Cut Pro, but when I re-opened it moments later the project was no longer listed under the Projects tab.  I had been working on this project for several months and it had been saving without a problem until today, where now it appears to be completely gone. 

I looked in my finder and the project still exists under the "Backups" folder, but for some reason it is just not showing up in Final Cut Pro. I've recently updated final cut to the latest version so I wasn't sure if that had something to do with it.

Applications :: Restoring Partition And Losing Hard Drive Space?

Sep 26, 2010

I've installed and uninstalled windows couple of times through the Bootcamp. when installing the Windows 7, it asks to format the partition so that the Windows can be installed. My questions comes here, I also restored the partition couple of times for no reason and whenever I restored it, I noticed that the space used by Windows never gets added back up to Mac Partition. So does that mean the space used by Windows will be just floating around? To simplify my question: After restoring the Windows partition, the space used by windows, will it be added back up to the Mac partition(to 1 partition)?

MacBook :: Partition External Hard Drive Without Losing Data?

Jun 25, 2012

How do I partition my external hard drive without losing the data already on it? I've been using it with Time Machine on my old computer, but want to use it as a regular drag-and-drop type back up on my new computer. Is there any way to basically split the hard drive so I can still access the Time Machine backups on my old computer, but also be able to use it with my new mac?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TimeMachine Won't Create Hard Links For Replacement Drive If Not Connected

May 26, 2012

With TimeMachine, I backup two external drives (let's call them drive A and B). Recently, drive B broke and I restored the data on a replacement drive and gave the volume the same name as the broken one had. I made TimeMachine aware of the fact that this new drive corresponds to the old one by using the "tmutil -a associatedisk" command as described here: [URL]When TimeMachine started the next backup, it did not perform all full backup of the new drive, though still way more than it should. So far so god. 

The problem is: if TimeMachine performs a backup while the new drive (the replacement of drive B) is not connected, it does not create the hard links for it. Drive A is not connected either, though hard links for it show up in the Backups.backupdb folder for this backup. If the replacement drive is connected the next time, TimeMachine will perform a full backup of it ... most likely because the previous backup does not contain any hard links.

ITunes :: Move A Library From One External Drive To Another?

Jun 8, 2012

I need to move my iTunes library from one external disk to another, because the original disk is about to fail. So, I went into iTunes Perferences --> Advanced, and set the library to a new, empty folder on the new drive. Nothing changed. I expected all my music to vanish from iTunes, so that I would have to re-import it. However, all the music remained, still on the old disk. At this point, if I were to recreate the library on the new disk, I would have all of my music twice. Is it possible to move an iTunes library from one external drive to another, or am I stuck with my original choice until I buy a new machine? If I can move it, can one of you clever folks explain how it could be done?

OS X :: Hard Drive Makes Clicking Sound / Move Apps From Internal Drive To New One?

Feb 19, 2010

I have a Dual 1.8 G5 and my hard drive has started to make a clicking sound every now and then. I believe it may be on the verge of dying anyday. Since i have space to put in another internal hard drive i am planning to get a WD Black Caviar 1TB and put it in.

Now my question is how do i move all my application from the old internal drive to the new internal drive.From what i have researched it seems that using a enclosure is the way to go but all the info i have seen is referring to replacing the drive rather adding a new one.I would like to move everything to the new drive and make that a master.What is the best way to perform this task?

OS X Mavericks :: Losing Printers / Preferences After Reboot

Jun 5, 2014

I have found my installation of Mavericks losing some preferences after reboot. So far, I have noticed that my entire printer list will go missing and that balance from a previous ban accountreconciliation in Quickbooks will go missing, as well. 

I have been able to recover the printers by attempting to add a new IP printer. The process will hang at some point. I'll quit all applications and reboot, after which my printer list will have miraculously returned. 

With Quickbooks, I managed to have the previously reconciled balance reappear after running several previous reconciliation reports. 

Based on reading around the forum here, it appears that corrupted preference caches may be to blame, but it is not clear to me how one goes about fixing this problem -- or which caches in the library folder it is safe to delete.

Applications :: Unable To Separate Move Or Delete Pages

Sep 16, 2010

Im really diggin Iwork Pages and have been using it for a few months. However, somehow when working on a multipage document, I attached 2 of the pages together and cannot get them to separate.

The best way to explain it is; if you click on the VIEW / Page Thumbnails your pages will appear down the left column. Normally you can move them around, delete, copy whatever. Somehow 2 of mine only move together and they cannot be separated, moved or deleted without both going.

MacBook :: Invalid Node Structure And Invalid Sibling Links On Hard Drive?

Jun 22, 2012

I'm having some trouble with my Macbook. It's running on Leopard 10.5.8. I recently tried to partition my hard drive and while doing so it prompted me informing me that there was an 'invalid node structure'. I could then no longer proceed with the partition. I had planned on updating my OS to Snow Leopard. I wanted to partition my internal HD, so I backed up some files on my external HD. I basically wanted my interal HD to run smoothly with a new OS while minimizing the space used. Now I've come across this issue where there is another message being prompted that says, 'invalid sibling links on hard drive'. I found THESE steps on another forum that informed me that this might restore the hard drive back to a readable/functional state but that didn't work either:     

(These were the steps I took and nothing happened except another prompt informing me of an 'invalid node structure')

Boot off the OS X CD (reboot, hold C while booting).The installer will load up, go to Utilities in the menu and run Terminal.Type df and look for the drive that has your Mac system mounted---you'll have to unmount this. On my MacBook Pro, it was /dev/disk0s2.Type umount /dev/disk0s2, replacing disk0s2 with whatever disk your OS lives on.Type fsck_hfs -r /dev/disk0s2. If you umounted the wrong thing, it will complain that you can't repair a mounted drive. Go back and umount the right thing and repeat this step. 

I then stumbled upon a few different forums mentioning something about Disk Warrior. I was wondering if THAT would resolved this issue. Honestly, I don't really want to spend much money on buying this but I WILL buy a new hard drive if I ABSOLUTELY need to. I was just trying to see if I can troubleshoot this before I decide to throw in the towel and buy a new hard drive or attempt to try out this Disk Warrior thing.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.1.3 - Export Audio As Separate Files From Multicam Clip

Aug 27, 2014

I've been trying to to export my Audio from FCPX 10.1.3 as Separate Files (per Roles) from a Multicam clip but it stops and freezes after exporting the first Audio track listed in the export setting. Example:

I have a Multicam clip with 3 Audio Roles (Bob, John and Marc, all assigned to their Audio Roles).When i export Audio as Roles (separate files), i then select all the Roles i want to export: Marc + John + Bob. It will export up to 35% or so and freeze.Then i look in the Finder location of the export to see the audio of Marc only.

If i put John + Marc + Bob, i will see the Audio for John only and so on.If (i have to at this point) i cancel the export, the audio file gets deleted and i get nothing out of FCP. Is there a way to export Audio as Separate Roles file from a Multicam clip or do i need to add all the Audio clip separately from the Multicam on the Timeline?

I'm adding the audio in the Multicam clip so that, if i want to remove a chunk of video from the timeline, The audio attached to it will also be removed and everything stays sync'ed after the cut i made. 

I tried Detaching the Audio from the Main Timeline.  I then get the Audio but still in a "multi cam" bundle.  When i select that and look in the Inspector, i see all the Roles but i can't Export like i want to.

Final Cut Pro X :: Export Large (huge) Video In Separate Chunks?

Dec 2, 2014

I'm fully up-to-date with all the software. 

I am recording a day-and-a-half worth of presentations.  The video will total out to be about 12 hours or more.  I am recording presentations by various professors on different subjects.  12-hour-video is worthless to a normal sane person.  I want to cut the video into sections and then export to Vimeo.  Ultimately I would like to slice-up everything into 15-20 minute sections. 

Is there an easy way, say "chapters", that I can setup in FCPX and then click "Export" and export out 40-or-so videos?  I'd like to call a section "Greg-1" and "Greg-2" and have FCPX generate Greg-1.mp4 and Greg-2.mp4, etc...
