MacBook Air :: External HDD Data Mysteriously Not Showing Up?

Jan 21, 2010

I got a very wierd issue going on with my 2TB Western Digital External HD that is connected to my Macbook Air.

All of my folders show the contents when using Windows XP (thur BootCamp) except for one folder, which I have all my movies in. The folders has 24GB of movies in it that I transfered to my external drive from another external HDD while using Snow Leopard (dont know if that matters).

Well I cant see any of the movies in that folder when it open. Its completely empty. But when I check the properties on it shows 24GB. However last night I transferd 15 movies into the folder (They are included in that 24gb) and I can see all 15 movies. But not the rest.

By the way, I zoomed out a lot so you could see how Firefox shows the blue line for the whole route and this happens for other things as well .

OS X :: Hard Disk Space Mysteriously Used Up

Nov 21, 2009

Shortly after getting my mac notebook I allowed an offspring to use it, it "died" and I had to re-install the OS from disk. After this, I have hardly any of my 80GB left (about 2MB currently!). I have nothing else on (I have not put anything on other than the odd photo). Have I doubled up the OS? If so how do I remove the first one! Also (you'd think I would learn) lent it to off spring to watch DVD whilst in France on holiday - battery now does not charge whatsosever! Has the voltage difference when using mains cable abroad just fried the battery?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Folder Containing All Files Mysteriously Disappeared?

Jul 1, 2012

I was scanning some pictures today when I noticed that the icon for the folder I call 'Work', which contains all my documents, pictures ect yak and blah, wasn't on the desktop, so I temporarily parked my images in Dropbox and went to look for it. It just wasn't there.  When I put in the names of specific folders into Spotlight, they weren't coming up.  I do have Time Machine, and went back until I found the missing folder - it seemed to have been absent since yesterday morning - and restored all the items. 

What could have caused this to happen?  My computer has been acting strangely recently;  a couple of weeks back it didn't want to spring into life at all, wasn't booting up - and then seemed fine on the third attempt.  A couple of days ago the mouse suddenly stopped working, too, only to reappear with no problem a few minutes later.

MacBook Pro :: External WD 320GB Hard Drive Isn't Showing Up On Finder

Feb 29, 2012

My external WD 320GB hard drive wont show up on Finder when I connect it up. Ive been having this problem ever since I pulled it out without ejecting it - I know thats bad but my macbook froze and I had no choice. 

Now my external hard drive wont show up on Finder, I even tried disk utility and I was able to verify the disk & then repair it, but its like I cant use the hard drive anymore. Every time I try to add files to it or remove files my laptop freezes and I cant do anything. 

Its got to the point where all I want to do now is get all my files off this external hard drive somewhow, Is there a way to get my files off this hard drive before its too late if isnt already so.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) USB External Hard Drive Not Showing Up

Aug 20, 2014

I have a Hitachi Touro USB 3.0 1TB external hard drive that has always worked on my Macbook. Formatted in FAT so it would work on both my PC and Mac. I can't remember exactly when it stopped working, but I think I had to reset my mac once as it stopped responding and the HDD was plugged in. After that it stopped showing up in Finder, but still appears in Disk Utility. It also shows up in Storage under "About This Mac".  I've tried resetting my computer, ran Apple Hardware Test, and have tested the hard drive on other computers and it works fine. Just doesn't show up in Finder on my mac!!

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Hard Drive Has Mysteriously Renamed Itself?

Mar 8, 2012

My hard drive has mysteriously renamed itself DB1973 Currently Being ModeratedMar 10, 2009 3:27 AM The hard drive item that sits permanently on my desktop has been renamed to 'pe. I noticed this yesterday evening, after I'd downloaded some software updates and tried to back up my files using Time Machine. An image file that was saved on my desktop has also changed its name, from "Peter and Laura caricature" to "-09§". However, the name of a movie file saved on my desktop has remained the same, so whatever has caused these file names to change hasn't affected everything on my desktop (I only had three items there - the hard drive, the image and the movie).Is this something I need to be concerned about? Does it signal some sort of corruption or virus? No-one else uses my machine.

MacBook Pro :: Managing A MBP With SSD And External Drives For Data?

May 9, 2010

Managing a MBP with SSD and external drives for data?

Its come to the point of upgrading my 2007 MBP 2.4 to a new i7 that I'm thinking of ordering it with a SSD drive. Its the biggest 'hit' to increase performance it seems. Problem is the size of the SSD drives for cost. I can justify the 256GB model but not $1300 for 500GB which would be ideal, and even if I wait 6 months or so to get a 500GB I don't see the price coming down all that much. So...

Let say I order an APPLE SSD in my MBP and use it for a boot drive and some files. How do I configure/set-up the external drive to read its files for Aperture, iTunes, documents.... Thinking now is that I would use a WD 2TB external drive in RAID so I have the files on one 1TB and auto back-up on the other 1TB in one inclosure, and another 1TB drive for Time Machine.

This kind of limits my portability, so I'm also thinking I'd also have a portable larger HD to take with me when I need it. How do I sync the files I'm working on and adding to on one external drive with the other (as easy as possible)?

I may be thinking this all wrong, so any suggestions besides just the 'how to?'

MacBook Pro :: Put Data Back From An External File/HDD?

Mar 14, 2012

My HD recently failed, sent my macbook back to apple and they replaced the HD and recovered the data. However, the data is sitting in one large file on my desktop and the rest of the computer is reset. It means that when I open applications e.g. iTunes, Mail etc none of my previous data is there. Is there any way I can put everything back how it was?

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Transfer Data From External Hard Drive To New

May 5, 2012

I had to get a new hard drive put into my macbook pro because it was failing. So, I moved all my data onto an external hard drive so I would not lose anything. But now I cannot get iphoto or imovie back onto my computer. It says I cannot open it because it is a time machine back up. I don't want to have to purchase iPhoto and iMovie again just because I had to replace my hard drive.

MacBook :: Partition External Hard Drive Without Losing Data?

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?

MacBook Pro :: External Drives - USB Vs FW800 5400 Vs 7200 Rpm - Benchmark Data

Apr 28, 2010

I recently picked up a couple of external drives, and decided to benchmark them to determine whether the interface and/or drive type made much of a difference. For those that don't want to read the details, here's the bottom line: If you're going to splurge on a FW800 interface, it's well worth fitting this with a 7200 rpm drive to maximize performance. Uncached sequential writes over FW800 were twice as fast on the 7200 rpm drive compared to the 5400 rpm. FW800 is a marked improvement over USB 2.0 as well. Full results are below. For background, when shopping for drives, I was interested in using the FW800 interface on the MBPs, for the simple reason it's rated almost twice as fast as USB 2.0. Some of the drives I was shopping for included 7200 rpm drives. My first thought was this was silly, since the interface limited the throughput to far-below the limits a 5400 rpm drive could produce, so why bother upgrading to 7200 rpm? Well, it turns out it does make a difference. I've got both a FW800 enclosure (G Drive Mini) and a USB 2.0 interface (Nexstar TX) as well as a 320GB 7200 rpm drive (Hitachi) and a 640GB 5400 rpm drive (Western Digital). So, I benchmarked both drives using both interfaces. Some interesting results! Turns out, the 7200 rpm drive does in fact dramatically improve performance in the FW800 interface. For sequential operations, Firewire has a dramatic improvement over USB 2.0; for random read/writes, drive speed seems to be a more important factor. And for large files, the combination of Firewire and 7200 rpm gives a pretty impressive throughput of almost 75MB/s. Full results are below. Note that the drive and interface are noted in the title bar for each drive.
