Intel Mac :: Display Folder Names Of More Than 20 Characters In OS 10.7.4?

Jul 1, 2012

There's the following terminal code flaoting around on the web:  

defaults write com.apple.finder FXDesktopLayoutGridCharCount 50; killall Finder 

This works great, but only for OS 10.5 – 10.6. So is seeing more than 20 characters in a folder name even possible in OS 10.7.4? 

Info:
iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

OS X :: File Names From Windows Server Get Cut Off To 31 Characters?

Mar 30, 2010

The title explains most of the problem:We have 5 (PC) servers on our network and several host files for the workstations. The strange thing is that, despite the fact that all servers have Windows Server 2003 AND SCSI drives formatted as NTFS, that only one server has the problem mentioned in the title:

Any file made on a Mac and placed on that server will be readable on Mac AND PC. Any file made on PC and placed on that server will be readable on PC but will get cut off to 31 characters on all Macs (running Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.6).

OS X :: Asian Characters Won't Display In X11

Nov 29, 2010

I back-up my macbook (OSX10.4) to an Ubuntu box using the X11 terminal on my mac with rsync, however I'm having problems with Asian characters.

The Asian characters don't display in X11, which I can work around, however X11 interprets the characters in strange, seemingly random ways, which could include the carriage-return-key and other random hieroglyphs. This then causes a problem because when rsync compares the old and new copies of the files, it gets the names confused and thinks files have disappeared when they have not.

OS X :: ITunes Does Not Display Asian Characters Correctly

Dec 21, 2008

I usually keep my music files on my PC and stuff, but since I was thinking of getting rid of it, I transferred all my music files into my MBP. So I transferred it via a USB Drive, and what do you know, iTunes show some of my Korean and Japanese songs with broken-looking weird scribbles. It happens to only certain songs, and I really am confused. As you can see in the attached picture, some displays the correct characters, but some just looks weird. Like the bottom three songs show correctly, but not some of the top ones or the highlighted one.

However, both my iPhone and my iPods in the past showed ALL Korean/Japanese charcaters without a single problem. Is there any language pack that I'll need to be installing? Or is there some kind of encoding within the iTunes? I am currently using the latest build/version of the iTunes on Mac OS X Leopard running on Unibody MacBook Pro 2.53Ghz. The MacBook Pro is also up-to-date with any of the latest updates via Software Update. I should be asking at the iPod and iTunes section I guess, so if it really seems like it's an absolute must that I post in the iTunes section, please let me know.

I don't know what you may need to know about my computer but here is some information:

OS X :: Can't Change Folder Names?

Oct 17, 2006

I have a Macbook Pro.

For some reason when I make a new folder now, I can't change the name. It just stays at Untitled Folder. I right clicked and did "Ownership and permissions" and made sure that the i was able to "read AND write". I am and so are all my groups and other. I didn't click "apply to enclosed items" cus i didn't know what it meant and it said "you can't undo this action"..

I can't even change the names to any folders i currently have. Or files I have as well. Delete doesn't even work...it just stays at whatever name it currently has.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Deleting Old Folder Names

Apr 23, 2012

I am using Image Capture 4.0 to download photos.  When I plug in my storage device (camera, SD card, USB stick, etc.) Image Capture opens and along with the option to select the download folder, all the names of the folders (grayed out) I have used since I first started using the computer appear.  These are folders I no longer use, but to get to the actual area or folder that I want to download to, I have to scroll past a couple hunderd previous, grayed out folder names.  Once I get to the actual desired folder, I can download to it. But, those annoying, old folder names still appear on the hard drive.

Applications :: How To Tag Folder Names As Album In ITunes?

Nov 7, 2010

I did a bunch of googling, and couldn't find an answer to this or how to do this except with windows-based mp3tag apps.

I have a collection of .WAV files with no tags or filenames at all, but they are all nested in folders that are named with the album the files are from. All the actual .WAV file names are just Track01, Track02, etc. Obviously if I imported these as-is it would be a disorganized disaster.

I am trying to import them into my iTunes library as ALAC lossless-compressed files.

All I would like to do is have the imported files tagged with the folder as the album name.

I can't seem to find any tag editor that will do this on a Mac. I don't want to sit here for hours in iTunes manually entering the album tag for each imported song, that would take ages. Are there any options, or do I brew a pot of coffee...?

OS X :: OSX Truncating Folder Names On Fat32 Volume

Jul 19, 2009

I have an external hard drive with several music folders on it. Volume is formatting FAT32 so I can move/edit between osx and windows. When on the OSX side, several folders are renamed into shorter versions. If I try to name it the original folder name it SHOULD have, OSX says I can't because it already exists.

I've attached a screen shot of one of the folders. This folder is supposed to say "red hot chili peppers - mother's milk 1989" :-/ Is this just a downside to using a fat32 volume in OSX? All the folders look fine in windowz.

Mar 18, 2009

I'm looking for a way to rename a batch of 30,000 photos. I have renamer but I don't think it does what I need it to do. I want to append the file name with the folder path. The photos are organized in folders which give info I want to make part of the filename itself (country, city etc.)

I am sure there is a way but...don't know how. Freeware or native apple way preferred over having to buy a new program.

Applications :: Need App To Create Text File Of All Folder Names On A Hard Drive

Feb 9, 2010

I just started using an eSata cradle to start doing my backup and archiving (I'm a photographer). Once I fill up the drive I'll be putting them in a safe but I'd like to have a printout bundled with them that lists all the jobs that are on the drive (the jobs are separated and named by folder on the drive)

I could go through and write them all down manually but I'd love to have a program that could automate it for me.

I'm working on a macpro that is running OSX 10.4

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recover Formatted External Hard Drive With File Names And Folder Structure

May 24, 2012

I accidentally formatted my external hard drive when I was creating a Windows USB install disk with Boot Camp It was a HFS+ formatted drive with a GUID partition table and 2 partitions: one clone of my Macbook OS, and one with personal data. I'm not worried about the OS clone, I'm more concerned about getting my personal data back on the second partition.So far I've used Stellar Phoenix and Data Rescue 3. I reformatted the hard drive from FAT to HFS+ before I did these scans. Not sure if it was a good idea, but the programs wouldn't scan properly otherwise.Stellar finds my files with the original folder structure, but I can't open any of the files, even though the file sizes seem to be correct. Data Rescue partially finds the original folder structure, and also has a "Reconstructed files" section which has all my files sorted by file type and without the original file name. I really want to avoid going through all my photos, videos, etc. one by one to sort them out.

Can I still recover my files in the original folder structure? Why can Stellar find all my files basically intact, but I can't open anything? In the meantime, I'm going to try scanning with Disk Drill and FileSalvage with fingers crossed...

OS X V10.4 :: Get-info On A Folder Display Number Of Files 'in' Folder?

Feb 13, 2012

(1) How can i have get-info on a folder display the number of files *in* the folder?I do not like having to count them by hand.

(2), how can i get new folders (and other files) to be placed at the bottom of a drive's window rather than off to the right at the top of the window..?

I have hundreds of files on this drive, arranged essentially in a tall column 3 or 4 files wide. I DON'T want new folders (or files that i copy or save to the drive) being placed all the way up at the top, out of view to the right because then i have to drag them all the way down to the bottom. Follow? Yet, this is what OSX is doing (usually).

Intel Mac :: The Address Book In A New Email Shows Only Names, No Addresses

Mar 18, 2012

I recently added new names with their email addresses in "Address Book" - picked the Group I wanted and then clicked the + sign under Names and entered the info in the space to the right.  I had already created a mailbox for each name and had gone through Mailbox-Preferences-Rules to have emails from or to routed to the correct boxes [which it did when I clicked on "Apply" at the end of this process].  All this to show what I did prior to choosing "New Message" in Email.  When I got the blank email page, I clicked on the Address Book icon above to retrieve the address I wanted and only the names of the people I had entered were displayed, NOT their email addresses.   I then restarted the computer - still the same.  How do I get the addresses to show up?
