A friend of mine is having some trouble with his younger brother erasing his history. He said it was the third time this week. He also says he doesn't really care to find out why, he just uses his history to return to sites often. Is there any way to prevent the primary user from erasing history or a way to recover deleted history? On Windows I remember a registry hack that greys out the erase history button. (He's using Safari).
I bought an imac 2 years ago, and updated it to leopard when that was released. I no longer have the discs i used for Leopard, only the original mac os x 10.4 discs.I am very soon going to be selling this machine and need to wipe everything so that all is left if the operating system in the form you would expect as if you had just bought a new mac.How can this be achieved, i tried disck utility> erase, but only erase free space was 'highlighted'.
I hope this hasn't been covered elsewhere (I can't find it if it has).My problem is that the history setting although set to " Remove history items after one day " does not. I Have reset Safari 4.0.3 and it still doesn't delete the history. Applecare can't seem to solve the problem either. Please help, although this isn't a major problem it is very annoying. This was happening before SL and I was hoping SL upgrade may have fixed this but it hasn't.
My disk utility is not showing any history or notes of any kind when I try and repair or verify permissions. This is a new devlopment, I used to get a lot of notes about issues being fixed or being unfixable. My computer is also running slowly - particularly firefox and mail. No other issues to note. I have a MacBook Pro running on 10.5.8
I am wondering what course of action is best to take next. I could buy a copy of disk warrior.
How do we delete email addresses that are saved? In other words, when you start typing an email address, and only after typing 2 letters the rest of the name pops up automatically? I know enough to go to the address book to delete addresses, but after I did that, they still pop up in the "new message."
How can I find history from a specific website (such as: time spent on that website and things of that nature) on my MacBook Pro? I would also like to see if I can get a detailed history for other things done on the computer, such as: Date & Time Spent running a specific application, etc.

I would just like to know, on time machine, how do you go back in time to see your Safari history or like for example, webpages you've visited during the previous month. Please tell me where I go step by step to see this and put that history back onto the Safari browser. how to do it on Snow Leopard and do you do it the same way on Lion?
I just replaced my hard drive today. I booted it up and went to disk utilities to format it and all of that. When I finished I went to restore system from back up and plugged in my external hard drive and the computer said there was no history of back up from Time Machine. This was strange because before I formated the hard drive and tried to restore the information, it recognized that there was back up information. I decided I would re-install the os and try again.
I just followed this link here [URL] to install my SSD and I foolishly did the Zero Erase. After searching through macrumors, it seems that I have killed my drive. Is there any form of redemption? Corsair F60 on a brand new MBP 15inch

Is there anyway to erase my hard drive on my old broken mbp?
