MacBook :: Restore Files To New Hard Drive / Transfer Files Via Hard Drive Enclosure?

Oct 2, 2009

I bought a new 500GB WD hard drive for my Late 2008 MacBook to upgrade from my 250GB drive. I have a hard drive enclosure, but I was wondering if when I install my 500GB hard drive, would I be able to use the enclosure to transfer files from my 250GB drive? I hope this was specific enough to get a clear response. If not, I'll try re-wording my question.

MacBook Pro :: How To Restore Files From Erased Hard Drive

Apr 24, 2012

I recently got infected with a trojan, and after updating my mac was told I've also picked up malware software. I moved everything I needed to my hard drive and wiped and reloaded my mac. I then checked my time machine backups on my hard drive and found the malware files on the time machine backups too. so i took what I needed off my hard drive and wiped that, but without realising have deleted my uni work folder containing my essays. Is there anyway to recover the files? I've tried using a couple of programs online but there only trials, so when I find the file I cant restore it.

MacBook Pro :: Transfer Files Off An External Hard Drive Formatted For Windows?

Feb 2, 2012

I just bought my first mac (yay!) and am trying to transfer my files off of my old pc. The problem is that I stored all my personal files on an external hard drive, which is of course formatted for windows. My mac will open it, but it is "read only." I tried plugging it back into my pc and using the Migration Assistant to transfer my files over, but it was not detected (rest of the pc was).

However, the second time I tried plugging it in to my pc, it told me it would need to be formatted first. Obviously my mac has changed something on it, and now all my personal files are on a hard drive that is unusable by either my old pc or my new mac!

OS X :: Cannot Transfer Files From Mac To External Hard Drive

Nov 18, 2010

My friend wanted some files to be transferred to his external hard drive from my Mac. As he is a Windows user, I guess his hard drive is formatted for Windows as well. As I plug in the hard disk in my Mac, I can't transfer the files. It says something like "the disk cannot be modified". So, please help me on how can I transfer this files from my Mac and if I do format it to work with the Mac, will it work for Windows later?

OS X :: Accessing Hard Drive Files After Crash Without Restore DVD?

Sep 21, 2010

My Macbook crashed recently and it just tells me to turn it off when I start it. I've exhausted all the recommended options in the manual (default settings, etc.) and unfortunately, I'm missing the first one of the Tiger installation/restoration discs . Is there any way I can access the files I need to back up using Carbon Copy Cloner on an external hard driver (which in this case would be an ipod)? It seems to think you can, but nothing on their web site seems especially clear in this. Also - I don't have access to a Mac right now, so presumably I won't be able to unpack the files the CCC DMG on Ubuntu or the ipod - not sure whether that matters or not.

IMac :: How To Transfer Files To External Hard Drive

Oct 15, 2009

I have an IMAC and I am having problems transferring video files I download to my external hard drive. I had trouble playing the files at first because it was not readable with Quicktime. I downloaded VPN and it played with VPN. I don't want to save those files on my computer so I would like to transfer it to my external harddrive. When I try to drag it over, it won't let me drop it in. I am new to the MAC world. Is there a way to choose where it will save itself right before you download like there is on windows. I click on it and it does not prompt you, it just starts downloading.

OS X Mavericks :: External Hard Drive Won't Transfer Files To Mac HD And Causes Finder To Crash

Dec 6, 2014

My external Hard Drive (Western Digital 2TB hard drive in a ICYBOX 2-bay USB 2.0 HD Dock) won't transfer files to the Mac HD. The transfer box comes up but stays at the 'estimating time' stage and remains like that. No matter how big the file/group of files are (biggest I've tried was only 500-odd MB) it won't transfer and stays at the 'estimating time' stage. When I try and stop the transfer, the transfer box remains at the 'stopping' stage until I restart the iMac. I can access other programs during this 'stopping' stage, as long as it doesn't involve the External HD. 

When I attempt to open files from the External HD in Photoshop CS4, both Photoshop and Finder stop responding and have I have to 'Force Quit'. However, upon force quitting finder, I loose all icons on the desktop until I restart the Mac via holding down the 'Power' button on the back. 

Ive already done a couple things. 

- I excluded the Ext HD on the Spotlight>Privacy tab. 
- I verified the Ext HD via System Utilities. Some errors came up but the Repair was successful and subsequent Verifications have returned as 'OK'. 
- I tried the Mac Diagnostic tool as suggested by Apple, but when I press the 'D' key on start up nothing happens. 

The annoying thing is that this problem came out of the blue, the Ext HD was working fine 3 days ago. 

My system: 
iMac 21.5inch, mid 2010
3.6GHz Intel Core i5
8GB 1333 MHz DDR3
OS X 10.9.5 (13F34) 

The Ext HD: 
Western Digital 2TB
Mac OS Extended (Journalised)
1.91TB available on the HD
Shares a 2 Bay ICYBOX dock with another 2TB WD HD
Connected to the iMac via USB 2.0 to a 4-port USB 2.0 hub 

Info:
iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.5)

Can anyone recommend a good data recovery app that works for OS X?

Anyone know what the best course of action would be?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

IMac :: Firewire 800 Hard Drive Enclosure - Average Speed Drive

Jun 5, 2009

I've been looking at a number of different Firewire 800 enclosures to use with my new Mac Mini and I have seen lots of complaints with almost all the enclosures that I have investigated, including the Newertech MiniStack v3 which I thought should be a good one. A recent enclosure I came across that I haven't seen any bad reviews about is the Icy Dock (MB559UEB-1S). I'd like to know if others are using this and what they think about it. The next question has to do with the type of hard drive to put into the enclosure. Is it worth getting a high performance drive, or will the Firewire 800 interface be the bottleneck even with an average speed drive?

MacBook Pro :: Recover Files Back / Put Hard Disk In External Enclosure?

Jul 9, 2009

My dear baby, a 3 year old macbook pro died last week (way to young). Fried logicboard. Apple wants 1.550 dollars to fix it, so I guess it is gone for good.

My question is, is it possible to take out the harddisk, put it in an external enclosure and plug it in to another mac to get the files?? If so, what enclosure should I buy?It is a summer 2007 macbook pro.

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Enclosure Not Working?

Aug 28, 2010

I went to the applestore and, after purchasing one to one, was turned down for a data transfer from my old macbook pro to my new macbook pro. The "genius" recommended that I buy an external hard drive from newegg and get some screwdrivers and do it myself. So I did, except (I think) he told me to get the wrong kind of external hard drive enclosure and now I'm just really upset because I went through the process and got the hard drive out of the old macbook pro perfectly. What do I need to (re)buy to make this data transfer work?

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Enclosure For Optical Bay?

Apr 8, 2012

I have bought a caddy from ebay some time back to replace the optical drive with ssd.  It worked great. Here is my current configuration: SSD is in optical driveStock hard drive stays same as it was Now I am planning to upgrade SSD and install the drive in the place of stock hard drive instead of in optical drive (to take advantage of higher speed).  But the stock hard drive doesn't fit in to the caddy that i bought.  It worked great for SSD, but not the internal hard drive. 

1) Can someone recommend suitable caddy model, (hopefully cheaper one).  Or if i take out the screws from hard drive, it may fit into the caddy that i have.

2) My admin user is configured in SSD, which should not have any problem after migration.  But my regular user is in stock hard drive.

MacBook :: Cheap External Enclosure For Hard Drive Swap?

Mar 12, 2010

I'm going to do my first HDD swap with my unibody macbook. I was all set to use Time machine, but I'm hearing that CCCloner or SuperDuper are a better idea. So, could someone link me a good deal on an enclosure I can stick my new drive into? OR, would I be ok just cloning to a partition on my 1TB external WD drive, then installing the fresh HDD, then cloning from external WD to new internal?

MacBook Pro :: Move Hard Drive To Time Capsule Via USB Enclosure And Use 60 GB OCZ SSD

May 23, 2010

Right now I have an i5 MacBook Pro with a 320 GB hard drive. I want to move that hard drive to my Time Capsule via a USB enclosure and use a 60 GB OCZ SSD hard drive in my MacBook. Do you think this is a good idea speed-wise? Also, does anyone have any experience with using iTunes or viewing videos with a hard drive plugged into a Time Capsule that's a few rooms away? I'm probably only going to use the wireless hard drive to listen to music and maybe move files to it once in a while. Would that be too slow? I would unplug it from the Time Capsule and plug it into my Mac to transfer big files or install software that's on the external drive.

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Gets Error -50 When Connected Internally But Not In USB Enclosure

Sep 4, 2014

I have a SATA hard drive that works perfectly when connected through an external USB enclosure but whenever it's plugged into the internal SATA connector on my MacBook Pro I receive the error message "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50)." any time I attempt to move or copy a file to it. 

This doesn't happen with any other hard drive I connect internally, so I don't believe it's an issue with the internal cable.  

I have made sure all permissions are set to allow reading and writing to the drive as well as selecting the "Ignore ownership on this volume" option in the Get Info panel.

OS X :: Can I Recover Files From PC Hard Drive On Macbook?

Nov 8, 2009

I had a Sony Vaio desktop computer and about two years ago I installed a system update from Windows which completely corrupted my hard drive. It wouldn't be such a big deal except I had about a year of photos which I had not backed up. I purchased around $300 of various (and supposedly reputable) data and photo recovery software; however, none of them worked. I could recover thumbnails and that's it.

I currently have a Macbook with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running OSx 10.5.8. I also have Parallels with Windows XP. My question is: If I buy a suitable adapter to connect my Vaio's hard drive to my Mac, could I potentially try something else to recover the photos? Or would it just be a waste of time?

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Full But Can't See All Files?

Apr 21, 2012

I just signed up for Liverdrive in the hope that I could smoothly access every file (music, photos, films, documents etc) from any of my devices. 

I used Carbon Copy Cloner to transfer all the files from my MBP to the Livedrive Briefcase drive (stored online, not locally), but to my surprise I found out this morning that something strange had happened: 

Before my HD (240 Gb SSD) had around 120Gb free space, but after the attempted transfer I get a warning that my startup drive is almost full (500 Mb free space). 

My problem and subsequent question is:

I cannot see those files that were supposedly copied anywhere on my MBP, but in Finder I can see that the HDD is indeed full.

MacBook :: Hard Drive Is Not Saving New Files?

Jun 14, 2012

Word is telling me file is "write protected" and other files tell me I don't have "permission" to save them.

Okay. Ronda is right. I have a MacBook, not Pro. I have tons of harddrive space left. I ran the Repair Disk Permissions. I checked the 'get info' on the harddrive. All permissions in order. I'm away from the office and don't have an external drive to save to, or I'd try that. I'm logged in as the admin. Is my harddrive going south? I have an old version of M.Office. I'm gonna close that and try saving something else to see if it's created a conflict. It really slows the processer down.
