OS X :: File / Directory Referencing On Mac

Mar 12, 2009

Im trying to set up NetJukebox on XAMMP and I need to paste in the file references to where my music is held on the HDD. Now, on a PC I would just be something D:/Music/ or something, with 'D' referncing the drive where the folder Music is held. The trouble Im having is doing this but with the 'Macintosh HD' drive, because I dont think that /User/*UserNameHere*/Music/ will work by itself. Is there a way I can include the drive name as well in that folder reference?

OS X :: HFS File / Directory Recovery

Sep 7, 2009

I accidentally deleted all of the files on a friend's portable drive, when using terminal to try to delete a very large folder (the Trash Can was not working it was so large)--since the files/folders were very recently deleted I am looking into data recovery software to get the files back. The problem is that the HFS file system seems to be designed in such a way that once a folder/file is deleted, it is very difficult to recover it's name even if its data can be recovered, so most data recovery programs (such as FileSalvage) will recover only known file types and give them a a number (such as 0004.jpg). Does anyone know of any Mac/HFS recovery software that has found a way around this particular issue and can recover data with the folder structure/file names intact?

Intel Mac :: Print Out The File Directory?

Mar 23, 2012

IMac PPC :: Directory Won't Keep File Names

Jun 25, 2012

The directory seems to have to rebuild each session. I open a folder and have to wait 8 seconds for the file to build then I can see the contents. After that, the folder opens immediately and will operate without problems UNTIL I shutdown. After restart, the folder stalls again as it builds the directory once more. My machine has multiple drives so I have triple boot and the other drives work fine so it is the system, not the computer itself.

OS X :: How To Dump A Volume Directory Into A Text File

Jan 3, 2011

I have several old internal hdds that I have collected over the past 4 years and I would like to be able to see what is on them without actually attaching them to my Mac Pro. Is there a way to generate a text file (better yet, a Finder like graphical representation of the file structure) that would list the directories and files contained on a volume that is normally offline?

OS X :: Defining Script Command To Output MP3 File In Directory

Sep 26, 2010

I have installed ffmpeg using MacPorts and am trying to work out a script that will convert audio files in a specified folder to mp3 files, outputting the converted files as mp3 files in another folder. So far the script looks like this:

code:set convertPath to "Macintosh HD:opt:local:bin:ffmpeg"
set convertCommand to quoted form of POSIX path of convertPath & " -i {infile} -f mp3 -ar 44100 -ab 128 -acodec mp3 - "
tell application "Finder"
set inPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new:"
set outPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new2:"
set myFiles to (files of entire contents of inPath whose name ends with ".m4a") as alias list
repeat with i from 1 to count of myFiles
do shell script convertCommand
end repeat
end tell

With this script I am getting the error : "Can't make every file of "class ects" of "Macintosh HD: Users:nick:Desktop:new:" whose name ends with ".m4a" into type alias list." I am not sure how to define the do shell script command so that it outputs an MP3 file in the output directory.

OS X Technologies :: Does The Exclusion Of A File Or Directory Remove Any Existing

Mar 15, 2012

Does the exclusion of a file or directory remove any existing, already backed up versions of that file or directory from TimeMachine? I have a large file I don't want backed up every time I connect to my backup drive.  It's 50GB+. I rarely touch the file, and when I do, I don't use it for anything that needs to be saved, it is a historical only version of my Parallels from an older Microsoft OS.  I occasionally need to open it to just look at something, but never 'do' anything with it. 

I want to exclude it, but don't want any older version of the file to be removed from backup. Does anyone know if exclusions are retroactive into the TimeMachine database?  Given this is 50GB+, trying it to find out is a quite slow process.

OS X :: Can ACLs On A Directory Prevent Guest Account From Access Via A File Share

Jan 27, 2010

I have given up on getting home sharing to work properly amongst all my various computers at home on 10.5 and thought I would use an old style brute force method of simply setting up a file share to share my iTunes library. I set up file sharing to use the Guest account and it works fine for all of my other content. I have tried to create shares of the following directories and can only connect as a registered user (Guest user cannot even see these shares):

/Users/<name>/Music

/Users/<name>/Music/iTunes

I have gone into the terminal and looked at the ACLs on the Music directory (e.g ls -alte) and I can't see anything that would block access, but I am not an expert with this type of ACL. The ACL on the Music directory is this:

0: group:com.apple.sharepoint.group.2 allow search

1: group:everyone deny delete

I have an ACL called 0: group:everyone deny delete on one of my other shares that works fine so this can't be the culprit (more importantly the ACL looks like it is just preventing users from deleting anything).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Folder Navigation - How To Navigate Up The File Directory While Didn't Navigate Down

Mar 17, 2012

If i search a file in finder and then i want to see what folder and go to that folder how do you do that? In windows you can click the drop down button that shows the entire directory path but there doesnt seem to be any similar function in the finder window. You can click the back button to go back up the tree if you got there by navigating down but if you went directly to the file form a search there doesnt seem to be any way to go up the path.

MacBook Pro :: Reoccuring Errors With Volume File Count, Directory Count, Etc?

Apr 14, 2012

I purchased a new MacBook Pro 17" with OS X Lion (10.7.2) preinstalled back in January of this year (2012).  I migrated my user accounts from my old MacBook Pro 15" (2008) running OS X Snow Leopard.  Almost right away I started having issues of all sorts, including Admin accounts that wouldn't allow me admin priveledges, hidden user groups, apps that wouldn't run, multiple obscure error messages and a host of other issues.  After scouring forums like this one I used Disk Utility and not only discovered innumerable permission errors but also disk errors like these: 

Invalid volume file count
(It should be 1656658 instead of 1656636)
Invalid volume directory count
(It should be 345764 instead of 345743)
Invalid volume free block count

[code]....

And now, this morning, after a month or two of all that... and after installing the Java Security Upgrade last night, I can't get into my accounts at all.  On first boot-up it hung for 20 minutes before I shut it down.  After running Disk Utility from Recovery Drive and repairing the drive I rebooted and got the log-in screen.  I clicked on my user icon, typed the correct password, was shown they white/grey screen for a few flickering seconds then was brought back to the log-in screen.  I rebooted to the Recovery Disk, ran Disk Utility, saw all the same errors again, repaired the disk, rebooted and got the same problems with logging in again. 

I've repeated this cycle five times today, as both a normal boot-up and in "Safe Mode" all with the same results.  I've repaired the disk using Disk Utility from Recovery Disk as well as accessing the disk in Target Mode, and always there are the same errors needing to be repaired. 

I don't buy that I'm dealing with a hardware issue.  My antivirus and security software are all up-to-date.  What the heck is going on?  Why do I keep having these disk problems?  Why can't I access my accounts anymore?  Why does it keep hanging during boot-up?  Why am I about to throw the machine out my bedroom window?

MacBook Pro :: Invalid Volume File Count And Directory Count?

May 1, 2012

My wife's macbook pro started shutting down by itself randomly, so i performed Disk Utility Verify Disk and found these errors: Invalid volume file count(It should be 800651 instead of 800653)Invalid volume directory count(It should be 191005 instead of 191003)The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired. Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed. As i do not have the Mac OS Leopard disks physically with me, I target-disk started her mac on my mac, and use my mac to run Disk Utility on her hard-disk, and repaired the disk without problems. 

However, this is the 3rd or 4th time this has happened. After the 1st time, i figured something is causing it, so i checked this forum, and found that for some, the Blackberry Messenger app causes programs, so i promptly uninstalled it fully (including associated system files) and this problem didnt come back for a while. Or could this be a sign the hard disk is physically failing soon? It is out of warranty now. We have regular Time-machine backups. We are actually kinda waiting out until the new line of macbook pro's come out..

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

OS X :: Directory Service Hogging Cpu?

Jan 6, 2011

Everything is running very, very slowly. In the Terminal, top shows me that process 15, DirectoryService, is using between 45 and 248%(!) of my cpu, and hdiutil is also using much more than I expect. What is causing this, and, more importantly, how can I make it stop. It is making my computer unusable.

It doesn't seem to matter what applications are running or if I have Web Sharing on or off. I suspected it was the flood of attempted logins from having Web Sharing on, but turning it off doesn't make any difference.

OS X :: Can Change Permissions On Directory?

Jan 27, 2009

I have a large music library that I have amassed over the years, but when I began ripping CDs there was no artwork on the iPod so it didn't matter, but now it would be nice to have it. I purchased a program called coverscout that finds artwork and automatically attaches it to the songs, but I have a problem. Somehow I have made every song read only. The program can't write the artwork to the tracks unless I change each one to rw. I tried to change just the directory, but that doesn't work.

Is there a terminal command to change all files in a directory to read/write? Just for your information all the songs are organized in a folder called music then subfolder of the artist and then a subfolder to that of the albums. It would be great to just change it all and then when I'm done change it back to read only.
