In the user profile there is a specified "linked" image. In my case it is the image that was created when my user ID was first established. I'd love to change it to a better image because evidently it gets linked with my messages etc.  I'm running Yosemite (OS 10.10.1) on a relatively new iMac

Dec 4, 2010

what I am trying to do is to take my wife's profile from my iMac and restore it to a MacBook Pro. But the MacBook Pro already has my profile on it and I don't want to screw it up. I'd like to just add her profile to the MBP.

Is there a way in TimeMachine to restore just an individual profile from one machine to another?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: User Profile Not Saving Any Preference Changes

Apr 22, 2012

I have a secondary user account who's preferences will not save. I have tried making it an administrator, but that hasn't seemed to help. The dock changes oringinally weren't saving, and I deleted the plist file, but that was a one time fix. I made changes once, and it only saved them once. Also, I have an application (Steam) that has been set to open when the user signs on. I have tried removing this program both through its own preferences panel, and also through the Start-Up items menu in the user preferences on the computer, and neither one is working.

OS X :: Deleting User Account And Creating Another Admin Profile?

Jun 4, 2010

I bought this Macbook Pro (10.6.3) second hand and the user account was the name of the guy I bought it from. I'm tired of always seeing his name pop up when I have to access my Home folder and since the only way to change that is to create another admin profile thats what I'm going to do. Once mine is up and running I will delete the old account but first I have a question. Is there a way I can transfer over things like my Admin accounts and History, My Applemail email addresses and history and my Firefox settings, plugins etc., without having to duplicate them?

OS X Mavericks :: Can Switch Admin Rights To A Different User Profile

Nov 30, 2014

I'm running Mavericks on a MacBook Pro. Right now I operate everything under the admin user profile. It has been suggested that I should not be operating all of my daily work using the admin account, I should be using a standard user account, and the admin should remain for admin purposes only. Is it possible to switch the admin rights to a different user account, and then I keep the account I've been working in, have all software and preferences loaded in and make it a standard account? Or can I duplicate my admin account and use the duplicated user account for working in, and the original as the admin? Trying to keep from having to reload all software, passwords, copy work, etc. Since I don't understand this fully, not sure how to accomplish this.

MacBook :: System Taking Long To Load User Profile Login

Mar 28, 2010

My Macbook has been running pretty slowly recently but only at log in. Its been taking ages to load my name at the top of if you try anything before is loaded my user profile I guess it just crashed. Also every now and again the wallpaper doesnt load up. Anyway to fix this is booted into safe-mode, verified the disk and repaired the permission. My work insists I use McAfee enterprise edition for Mac if connecting their servers so I am also protected from viruses and mal-ware. Its just got worse. And stranger still Safari still loads but thats all. Any other program will bounce a few times and then do nothing. Even mail, pages, dreamweaver, terminal, settings - everything. Safari is the only working program I have found that actually still loads. The internet connection works find and everything else. McAfee is sitting in my status bar so I am guessing that has also loaded properly.

OS X :: Recover Lost Files On External HD (ntfs)

Nov 26, 2009

I recently backed up some DVD's via Toast using Toast own file format.They were backed up straight to the external HD itself.

I checked that they were all working after the process finished, they were working.

But I think my MBP went into standby whilst the External HD was still connected, and so it was never ejected properly.

Now that I've come to view the files again, they aren't there!!
There's just a Zero KB file, called 'photography', which was the name of the folder they were stored in.

I've tried viewing the folder under windows via VMware, but it says the folder is inaccessible due to being corrupt, or something.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for recovering those files?
The external HD is NTFS, I think I used a patch so that my MBP could read/write files to it.

MacBook Pro :: How To Recover Lost Folders And Files

Mar 12, 2012

Some days ago I lost all of my 15 GB folders and files that stored in my Macbook Pro hard drive called DATA.  I brought my Macbook pro to an experienced computer tecnicians who providing data recovery services. To his and my suprise, after checking, scanning it a few hours, he said their is no way to recover because he did not find any trails at all.  The computer still seems working properly - I have no problem with any applications.  There are few other folders in the DATA hard disk containing pictures, computer programs still remain.  These lost folders and files contain mainly documents (word, excel, power point, pdf etc) which I accumulated in my many years working  !!!!.  I did not make a back up since last September partly because I think Mac is very safe. 

The computer with me all the time on that day and only my son used Power Point to make a simple presentation on that evening - he can not save it on the folders the he normally use - All the folders and files are gone.Macbook Pro 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB 1067 MhZ DDR3

MacBook Pro :: Recover Lost Disc Space

Jun 20, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro 10.6.8. I work with a lot of large files. When I'm done, I transfer these large files to an external hard drive, erase them from my lap top, and at least once a day, restart my computer, allowing for the formerly used disc space to be recovered. I occasionally will run ONYX and restart the computer, this also recovers lost disc space. Usually after restarting my computer there is between 100-150 GB of available space. My problem now is the space is not coming back. I'm down to 45 GB. Trash is empty. I've cleaned with ONYX, but the space is not recovering.

OS X :: Lost Everything From External Hard Disk / Recover Using Software?

Feb 15, 2011

I had a WD external hard disk which I was using on my pc but not any more since I'm not a pc user any more. However, I'm a mac user now but when I connected my WD external hard disk I found out that i have lost everything on it. I thought may be because of my mac so I connected on my pc again and i have not seen any file which means I lost everything. Give me any software on mac that will get everything that I have lost. It's really important to me.
