MacBook :: Why Can't Access A Large Portion Of HD

May 19, 2012

I have a Macbook with 320GB HD, which I previously stopped using and passed over to my wife. When doing that, I created a new user for her and deleted my old user and the associated folders and files. This was a few months ago. Lately I noticed my wife's HD is too full than I would expect, so I started trying to clean it up using all the recommended SW. No matter what I did (reveal hidden / system files, use designated applications etc.), I could only find ±100GB worth of files. So, the Disk Utility shows the HD has one partition of 319GB, out of which 292GB are is use. When I search for files, I only get ±100GB (indcluding everything).  

I did "Verify Disk", "Repair Disk", "Repair Permissions", emptied caches, trash -- still no sign of the missing ±190GB. The same when I ran the disk utility prior to logging in (using CMD+R during restart).  

I have a feeling this is somehow related to the deletion of my old user/profile. Can it be that this portion of the HD is not accecible to my wife's user/profile? And so these files cannot be accessed?

MacBook Pro :: Remove Entire Top Half Portion?

Jun 9, 2010

I've searched everywhere, and i can't find a thread or video about removing the whole top portion of the mbp off. all i have found was how to replace the screen, but not the actual top with the hinge etc. when i close my mbp, the top part isn't aligned properly. the right corner of the bottom half of the unibody shows, while the left corner has a portion of the top portion overlaying the botom portion. hopefully that makes sense. is it hard to remove the whole top? how do u do it? is it worth risking my warranty?

Applications :: Software That Allow To Record Portion Of Screen

Jun 13, 2010

I have a macbook pro 13 (The new 2010 one). What software would you recommend that would allow me to screen record a portion of my screen that is playing a 720P video. Basically I'm for the best screen record program with:

-High quality capturing (720P)
-Portion of the screen capture(Not the whole desktop)
-High frames per second capture (not jerky, but smooth)

I expect to make some compromises but I'm just looking for the best software that will fit the most of my needs.

I need to upload just the months September 2008-June 2009 to a website. Actually, I'd prefer to save this file in some way to send to someone else to upload. I can't seem to find a way to do this! Can this be done w/Ical? If not, does anyone know what software I can use to do this (Word now uses Entourage when I try to make a calendar with it & I have the same problem w/Entourage!) We don't need/want to upload the whole calendar.

Final Cut Studio :: Extract Middle Portion Of Video Frame As Separate / Smaller Video

Aug 21, 2014

Someone at work recorded a screen capture video. Within the frame, there's good material but a lot of garbage around the edges that I don't want (what Sally Hogshead would call "screen crapture"). The good stuff lasts the entire duration of the clip, is not perfectly centered, and does not move at all in its placement or change size throughout the clip. 

If I crop or trim, I can eliminate the garbage, either making it transparent or black (there's no other clip beneath it to show through) easily enough.  Is there a way to then export just the desired portion of the video frame (the non-cropped good stuff) as its own video at a smaller frame size?

IMac :: 2.8 Imac's External Portion Feels Extremely Hot - Use SMC Fan Control?

Jan 10, 2008

I'm new here and was hoping for some feedback. I got a new 2.8 Imac and had it replaced after the Power Supply Position was idling at 82 degrees Celsius, and the top of the case felt very hot to the touch. The fans never "kicked in" even though it was that hot. Anyways, I got a replacement machine and the Power Supply Position now idles at about 68-70 degrees Celsius (much cooler), but the external portion of the machine still feels extremely hot. So my question is, how hot is too hot?? Is my machine normal and am I worried about nothing?? Should I be using SMC Fan Control?? Is the heat because of the 2.8 processor??

MacBook Pro :: Fan Runs When Using Large Applications

Mar 27, 2012

When using either Mail (5.2, v. 1257) or Aperture (3.2.3, Build 6010000.1) I notice that the fan seems to run all the time when either of these two applications are open.  I just imported my entire iPhoto library (20,000 photos, about 80 GB hard drive storage in iPhoto) into Aperture.  I was lead to believe that Aperture has better management features for larger libraries. 

How do I find out why the fan is running and what can I do to monitor this situation?  Is it likely to cause damage to any of the MBP's internal components?

MacBook Pro :: Copying Large Files From Old To New One?

Jun 19, 2012

I am having another problem transferring some larger folders from my old MacBook to my new MacBook. I am trying to move some very large folders and individual files from my old Mac to my new Mac, both running the latest Lion. I have tried this with both USB Flash drives and with external hard drives. Whenever I drag and drop from Finder to either the flash drive or the hard drive, the copying begins, but always gets stuck with the pinwheel at almost exactly 4.17GB. At first I thought that the formatting of the flash drive might be the culprit, but it also happens on the external hard drive that is formatted for Apple Extended. 

A very "time and effort" intensive workaround is possible if I just copy fewer than 4 GB at a time, which is what I have been resorting to. But this won't allow me to transfer my Windows 7 Parallel virtual machine, since that one file is over 90GB. As additional information, it appears that Time Machine isn't bothered by this limitation, since I can backup and restore these huge files from a backup. Unfortunately, Migration Assistant doesnt seem to permit the granularity of restoring just one file. why the system hangs at 4.17GB of transfer? By the way, this happened with Snow Lion too. It didn't just start with Lion.

MacBook Pro :: Large Post SSD Install Slowdown?

I installed a 180GB Intel SSD about 2 months ago and at first everything was great - very fast, etc. However, over time anything dealing directly with files (such as attaching a file in email, opening desktop folders, etc.) seems to be getting slower and slower. I get the rainbow icon often now whereas before it was quite rare.
