OS X :: Large Amounts Of Data Copying?

Oct 29, 2009

I have 1.9TB on one drive, 645GB on another; I want to copy all that data onto a separate 6TB drive....

What's the fastest way to do this? I have already begun w/ 2 cp -pR commands, running in different Terminal windows, but seem to be getting lower disk activity numbers in Activity Monitor than I was with a brief test of a Finder copy... is that possible?

Any suggestions? Also looking for a (relatively) efficient way to verify the copied data after the fact.

Windows On Mac :: Sync Large Amounts Of Data?

Nov 26, 2010

I use robocopy (command line copy utility built into windows) to sync ~150GB of data between multiple windows machines. I've never had any issues, it will run and check the data to make sure it is synchronized, if there are no changes it can check the 150GB in a few minutes.

Now I have a Mac 10.6 that will have a copy of the data on an HFS partition. I'm connecting to the Mac from a Windows 7 machine via file sharing in Mac to Windows. I have robocopied the data onto the Mac system. However when I re-run robocopy all the files show up as Older or Newer time stamp so it will have to recopy everything making it useless for synching just changes.

I've tried the /fft switch for use with fat32 and file systems that don't store the time as precisely as NTFS

I've tried the /dst switch to check and see if Daylight savings is messing it up.

Anyone else have this issue?

Can you suggest any utilities that you use to sync large amounts of data between mac and windows?

Applications :: Mail - Incoming Messages In Large Amounts?

Nov 23, 2009

I have a 13" MBP running 10.6.2 and for some reason I randomly get Mail bringing in like 3,400 messages and i have not been able to figure our why. I have the following Mail accounts:

1. Work - this is pop and I know it can not be this account causing it as I only leave 1 day on server so there is not that many in there
2. .Mac - (mobile me) however i only have 2,784 messages in it so the numbers dont match up
3. gmail - this account only has 26 messages since i only use it for GV and syncing an Android phone

It does this very quickly for supposedly bring in that many messages and when it finished nothing has changed and i notice nothing new in my Mail accounts?

Applications :: How To Delete Large Amounts Of Deleted Duplicate Mp3s

Oct 21, 2010

ive got a decent sized itunes library, 20,393 songs/125.5 gbs of music in the program, but over time as i have added files a lot of times id get duplicate files so i would delete those, and when i deleted them i didnt always press the move to trash button, and just for what ever reason would sometimes press the keep file button, so now at this point after doing this for a while i now have a music folder that is 168gbs of music, when i really only have 125 in itunes so is there any program or way to automatically delete those duplicates, because it would take a rediculous amount of time to go and find and delete each one individually obviuosly.

Applications :: Sending Large Files Between Two Macs Over The Net?

Apr 27, 2010

Me and my sister are looking for a way to swap files, between our Macs, over the Net.

I have no idea about FTP or Transmit and I'm not sure what our best method or app should be?

We're both running OS X- I'm on Snow Leopard, she's on Leopard*

My sister has two boys and a little girl. Shortly after buying our respective Macs, I bought an HD camcorder and my sister bought a very good DSLR. So I have lots of HD videos made with iMovie for her and she has tons of pics to send me. We both have our own back-ups of course but neither is proof against fire or theft to be honest. I know we could swap them on a large USB stick or a portable drive but we don't always see each other and she's very busy.

OS X :: Connecting Two Macs Via Ethernet?

Mar 23, 2009

I have an iMac and a Mac Pro that I frequently connect with a ethernet cable to transfer movies back and forth, When I do this, it messes up the internet connection between the two Macs as well as Windows computers in the house. The internet connection will just stop every few minutes and it takes several clicks to get links to open. If I click on a link once, I just get the spinning wheel and that will keep spinning all night if I let it, same with the Windows computers. Web pages never load up completly, even now there is a blue bar accross the internet address as I am typing this in Safari.

The problem remains for a long long time, even days after I've removed the ethernet cable from the Macs.

The computers are all using WiFi and an AEBS.

OS X :: Straight Ethernet Work Between Macs?

I know it worked during migration assistant but does it work all the time?

I need to slurp off the 40+ gig music directory from the old machine as MA didn't get it ... and I figure direct eth-eth would be fastest.

if it does, do I just use network to find the other mac?

MacBook Pro :: Run Into Large File Transfer Using Thunderbolt Between Two Identical?

May 31, 2012

I have two MacBook Pros running 10.7.4. I wanted to copy one iPhoto library from one device to the other using a new Thunderbolt cable. The file is approximately 60GB. When I copy a small file of 1.0 to 2.0 BG in size, the transfer is incredibly fast -- as in seconds.  

When I try to transfer the large file (60GB), the transfer is very slow, and Finder says it will take 12 hours. Oh, and I am not running any anti-virus software.

MacBook :: Transfer Files Via Ethernet From One To Another?

Mar 18, 2008

Wanting to move a large number of files via ethernet from an older macbook to a newer one. Dont want to user MA either.

I know Ive seen it said that you can do this using Appletalk, but now I cant find any info about it. Googling, I only came up with links dealing with pc -> mac transfer, or old info, like g3 imac -> imac, that type of thing.

Seems when I saw this it said to use Appletalk from the network settings. Is that all it takes? Do I just check 'make appetalk active'? As far as the 'appletalk zone', what goes there? And I assume 'configure automatically' is the best selection there.

Applications :: Store ITunes Songs On External HD Accessed By Two Macs?

Mar 13, 2009

I want to know if this is possible and, if so, how to do it.

Currently, my iMac's HD is overloaded by my 220GB collection (mostly podcasts).

My idea is to have the iTunes collection on an external hard disk (e.g. a Western Digital Passport 320GB).

When connected to the iMac, iTunes on the iMac reads the MP3's from the external disk.

Then, when I'm on the road with my MacBookPro, the MBP's iTunes would read from the same external hard disk.

A problem could be how to make the second MBP recognize any updates to the iTunes list that has changed when used with the iMac since the last hookup.

MacBook Pro :: Ethernet Connection / Data Transfer From PC?

Mar 21, 2010

I just purchased an external HD for my Powerbook G4.

Im trying to transfer my old media from my PC to my Mac.

I've had difficulties partitioning a section of the hd on my pc that will be compatible with mac because the pc will only partition in one format (NTSF I believe).

So my questions are:

Can I connect the two via ethernet?

Or is there some other solution I have not come across?

I've searched for an answer but most help instructions are not according to the exact specs I'm dealing with.

I'm running Windows XP on the PC and Osx 10.4.11 on my 1.5 Ghz Powerbook G4

Applications :: Using Photoshop CS3 Transfer Between Macs?

Jun 4, 2010

I have Photoshop CS3 installed on my Macbook 13", but it's beginning to lag (old model) and I've now got a 27" iMac. Is there any way I can transfer the app from the old computer to the newer one?

I did migration assistant when I first bought the iMac, but for some reason Photoshop wasn't transferred (although a number of other Adobe apps were so I don't know why that should be). Either way, I'm well beyond repeating the whole thing. I just need transfer advice for this single program.

OS X :: System Considerably Slower After Large File Transfer

Jan 8, 2011

I copied a lot of information to my friend's mid-2010 MBP, about 80GB of data. Used iChat - transfer took about three hours but it got there.Before the transfer her laptop was very quick - didn't have much installed, plenty of free space. After the transfer, the laptop still have a lot of free space (>100GB) but is very slow. Before the laptop would take maybe 1 minute to boot up.. now it's over three. She experiences bouncing beach balls when loading applications.
