Intel Mac :: Mail Not Working After Attempt To Send Large File?

Jun 21, 2012

So the other day I tried to send a large file through the Mail app to a friend. I realized after clikcing send that the file was indeed too large to send since my Mail froze in the attempt of sending it. I used force quit to get out of Mail and opened it again, and then clicked the x button when it started to send again. But then the message was still in my outbox and in my drafts, and Mail would try to update my inbox and drafts but just continue loading. I went to my outbox to delete the message, and when I did a notification popped up that said "The message could not be moved to the mailbox "Trash—On My Mac". The operation couldn't be completed. File exists". Now whenever I open Mail it's the same story, where it attempts to send the message, and then everything's trying to load but never does.(I went to iCloud recently to send a message, and the only remnant of this action was a draft of the message without the file, which I deleted.)

OS X :: Fast External HD Format Type - Large File Size Usage?

Nov 7, 2009

I'm going to use a fast 300GB WD VelociRaptor HD in an e-SATA enclosure connected to my MBP via a Merax e-SATA Xpress XpressCard/34 for moving large audio file drum software during live play. I know FAT32 wont work because of it's 4gig file limitation and stability issues (file corruption). I could use the more modern and stable NTFS but that would require using something like NTFS-3G or Paragon to allow OSX to recognize it but I'm worried about slower performance going that route. Would using the OSX native HFS+ format give me the performance and large file size usage I need?

I have got a iMac 2011 27inch i5 2.7GHZ 4Gb RAM, i was wondering what is the average consumption should be with the system memory and how much on average should be free? Because mine used to have 2.6GB free and now my Imac is running more slowly and is about 1.38GB free.

Intel Mac :: Aluminum Keyboard Keys Damaged Just Through Normal Usage?

Feb 11, 2012

It looks like the surface of a few keys has been eaten away by acid, I can only imagine it has happened because my fingernails touch the keys through normal typing, but this is completely unavoidable unless I type like a one-fingered man.  It mainly seems to happen on the A and S keys, this has happened on my white MacBook, Wireless Aluminium keyboard and Wired Aluminium keyboard, but as they are so expensive to replace I am not willing to buy a whole new keyboard for this.  Also, one of my cmd keys has an odd stain on it, possibly from a crumb or droplet of orange juice which I'm sure I would have wiped off immediately, I wouldn't have expected plastic to stain so easily.  Has anyone else found this with their Aluminium keyboard? 

I suppose there's nothing much I can do to prevent it (I refuse to use a silicone cover), so my option appears to be just to replace those keys damaged through wear and tear however I can.  Are the keys interchangeable between these three keyboards?  (Wireless / Wired Aluminium, white 2008 MacBook Core2Duo)  The main keys look the same apart from the bottom row on the Wired Aluminium keyboard which are a bit wider.

IMac (Intel) :: Hard Drive Usage Reports Differ

Jun 24, 2014

My 2011 21.5" iMac has a 1TB hard drive. In the Finder, it reports 238GB used, 744GB available. But, in Disk Utility and in DiskWave analyzer, it shows 460GB used. "About this Mac" reports 460GB used with 206GB of "backup" that is not there (not invisible files, not showing up in detail reports). When DiskWave reports 460GB used, the detailed list of files & apps only adds up to 238GB - a mystery in that it cannot show the extra "used" space, but only reports free space as 539GB thus not accounting for the remainder. How can I reconcile these differences?

Applications :: File Size Not Working In Finder?

Apr 9, 2009

I have tried all of the combinations of settings I can think of. Currently I have the size column allows show up as well as having "calculate all sizes" enabled. I can always find the value I want with get info, but some of my directories and files display the size while others don't. I can't figure out any real pattern, aside from the following:

1. my non-bootable secondary hard drive doesn't display any sizes in Finder

2. sometimes sizes will be displayed for a particular set of directories and files and sometimes they won't (this is not a case of not being patient enough for the values to be calculated). The only pattern here seems to be that all files in particular directory will show file size or none.

3. sizes can not work in finder, but will show up in path finder or vice-versa.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: File Sharing Not Working Between IMac And G5

Mar 26, 2012

I have an IMac running 10.7 and G5 running 10.5.8 the G5 we are using as an in house server. It working fine for 5 months then our internet went down and now it no longer works. This is how I have it set up. on the g5 I have file sharing turned on and the folder I would like to share set to share. Then I made logins for for the computer I want to share the folder with. The on the IMac I would go to connect to server and the g5 would show up then it would ask me to login so I did. Everthing worked fine but now when I try to login it just gives me the spinning wheel but never logs in why is it doing this? I have restarted both computers and I have deleted my login and re added it. But still the same thing.

Final Cut Pro X :: Copy File On Import Not Working?

Sep 8, 2014

An issue arose today with our new MacPro/FCPX/SNS EVO SAN combo. 

When importing media from a portable drive using FCPX in “copy files” mode, with the Library’s media folder residing on the SAN, FCPX imports but does not copy the media. The clip appearing in the browser is still linked to the original file. 

If the clip is of a codec that can be optimized and the option in the import window is ticked, only the optimized media is copied to the SAN volume. 

Renders work, writing to a dedicated NAS volume, Exports work too, writing to another dedicated Exports NAS volume. 

I am stumped. I have never seen FCPX behave this way. The strange thing is that at no time does it indicate any problem with the copying process not succeeding… 

Because the optimized media is created on the volume I would imagine this is probably more of an OS/FCPX issue but I don’t know enough about the processes in the mac to be sure of that. 

OBTW: Trashed the prefs, with both Pref Manager and alt+cmd at launch.

Applications :: No Torrent File Working On Any Download Program

Sep 23, 2009

Tomato Torrent, BitTorrent AND Transmission are not downloading torrents. I've tried them all on many different files and not one single torrent file is working on any of the programs.

Tomato says:
"Last Error: Tracker announce still not complete 180 seconds after starting it, (at Mon Sep 14 '09 @ 10:12:24 PM)"
"Last Error: Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (60, 'Operation timed out')>, (at Mon Sep 14 '09 @ 10:13:09 PM)"

There seems to be a problem with connecting to tracker, however I have been using Tomato for months and it has worked perfectly in the past.

MacBook Air :: Empty Trash Not Working - Getting (File Is Still In Use) Message

Jun 3, 2012

I have 2011 MacBook air and I tried to empty the trash, and only one file wouldn't delete because 'the file is still in use', but the application was turned off. So then I went to finder and clicked secure empty trash, which then proceeded in emptying, but it stayed that way for a long time so I clicked close. Then, it did seem to close, but then didn't and was stuck in deleting.

At that point the Air's fans began to crank up full speed and became extremely hot. I tried to turn off but didn't work so I just put it to sleep at the moment. I'm new with Mac ( in fact this is my first Mac) so I had no clue what to do. In windows I just do ctrl+alt+delete but what should I do with Mac to close the frozen command (in this case secure empty trash). I got scared bc of the fans and the heat. What should I do?

Hardware :: Canon MP600 Scanner Not Working - Unable To Save File

Mar 30, 2008

I have a Canon MP600 scanner/copier/printer. It's connected to my MacBook which I purchased in Sept 2007. I have 10.5.2 on my computer. Computer's HD failed after 4 months, then flex cable (BUS cable?) had to be replaced about a week ago. Scanner worked fine before 10.5.2 and the hard driver failing.

Scanner scans the document, but a screen pops up on the computer that says "Unable to save file. The system cannot find the path specified."

I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg > picture2.jpg

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

OS X :: Sort By The Date A File Is Placed Into A Folder (Date Modified/Created Not Working)

Jun 3, 2010

I have a folder where I place an ever growing collection of my favorite songs. Before I switched to Mac, on Windows, when I wanted to revisit songs I most recently added to the folder, I would sort the songs by the Date Modified and it would order the files I placed in the folder by date.

In OSX, however, there must be a slightly different meaning to "Date Modified," as it does not quite sort my songs by the order they were added. It gets some of it right, but there's plenty of files that are out of order--tune "x", which I know was placed in the folder a week ago is actually listed further down the list with songs placed in the folder months ago.

Is there a way to have OSX sort files in order of the date it was placed in a folder? Neither "Date Modified" nor "Date Created" works 100% as I thought it would. Or is the OSX definition of Date Modified/Created slightly different than Windows?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Web-mail Not Working Since Installing File-maker Server 12?

Apr 18, 2012

Since installing Filemaker Server 12 on our Lion Server 10.7.3, the Webmail is no longer working. I know with previous installations of Filemaker Server I have been asked whether I wanted to keep the system version of PHP or install PHP which comes with Filemaker Server, but I don't recall being prompted about it on this occasion. Previously I had always opted to retain the system PHP.


And from the WAN I get just a screen saying webmail is turned off and that I can turn it on by using the Server app on the server (It is already checked in the server app).
