OS X :: Freecom Network Drive Not Showing Or Displaying Files?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm running a macbook osx 10.5.8 and a windows 7 laptop. I have purchased the Freecom 500gb network drive and installed it on the pc. It took forever to tweak it to see and access the files (kept on getting an error) but I finally managed it. I created new folders on the Freecom hard drive (plugged into my router and accessed wirelessly from both of the computers) so i could see there was something on the drive when i try and connect on the mac. It found the drive on the network, and could open the 'public' folder - yet the folders i created (with full permissions granted) are not there. Also, when i create a new folder on the mac in that directory - it creates and disappears straight away.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Some Files Not Showing Up On NTFS Drive

Mar 22, 2012

I have two NTFS external drives. I used to copy files through my bootcamp partition which is Windows 7. However, when I copy certain videos from my Mac partition. It shows up normally on windows side, when I get back to Mac OS, I cannot see them. Everything else are showing up fine, exactly for certain video files, with both NTFS drives missing the same files. When I connect both to another PC, both are showing up those files fine.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X :: Files Transferred To External Hard Drive Not Showing Up

Mar 12, 2010

We have a 320gb external hard drive formatted in FAT32 so both the macbook and our windows computer could use the drive. We copied 5 gigs of music to the hard drive to view on the Windows computer. The computer recognizes the drive and shows that 5 gigs are being used but I cant see any of the files.

OS X :: External Hard Drive Stopped Showing Files

Sep 23, 2009

Recently I just converted my old PC's 250gb Hard drive into an external drive. In the beginning everything worked fine. Though I could only read the files from it on my mac, I was fine with that because there was so much old music and pictures that I wanted to get off of it. There happened to be one particular picture that I couldn't find searching through the HDD with my mac, so I thought maybe I would be able to find if I looked for it through a windows system.

So I then plugged the external into my Windows laptop. After failing to find the picture on the PC, I plugged the hard drive back into my mac, but for some reason it's not showing the files. The hard drive is being found, but when i click on them in the finder no files show! The drive is not erased because the capacity and amount free is still the same. And to put the icing on the cake when I plugged the drive back into my PC a message comes up that says "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".

OS X :: Copying Large Files To Network Drive

Nov 22, 2009

I've recently purchased a NAS drive and would now like to copy about 500 GB of files onto it. Obviously this is a slow process! Is there a way I can set up the copy so that if it gets interrupted I can resume the transfer? At the moment the I just know X of 100 GB has been transferred. On the destination drive you can't see any of the files being transferred across until the entire operation is complete (on a pc you can normally see the files that have been transferred immediately) ... I'm a bit worried that if I turn my laptop off or I have any network issues the transfer will fail..

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Delete Files From HFS+-formatted Network Drive?

Jun 6, 2012

I have set up an external drive as above.The drive is to be used to archive large amounts of uncommonly used data (not a backup) and then is backed up to crashplan+ off-site.The drive came formatted as FAT32 (I believe.) As we still have one PC and all individual files are smaller than 4Gb, I set up the archive drive as formated out of the box.

Data was written to the drive without issue, backed upi off-site with no issue and accessed a couple times.

The issue came when recently upgraded some itunes albums. These albums had been previously removed from the library and from the computer and stored in the archive drive. These albums were upgraded and redownloaded from apple generating a copy of the album data, but in a superior format (no-drm, greater sampling rate.) This made the archived files obsolete and generated a risk of mixing versions. I decided to delete the obsolete files from archive.

When I attempted to do this by selecting, right-clicking and chosing "move to trash" I was prompted that this was not a "undo-able" action, suggesting that while I was selecting "move to trash," the action would not generate a copy in the trash.Next I was prompted to enter my user and PW. The only user and PW combo that would not cause the dialog to "shake it's head" at me, was my computer user-specific password.The network or drive associated user and PW combos would not take When I entered my computer user and PW, it was accepted, but a dialog labeled "Trash" popped up with small font, reading "The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access some of the items."

Trying to delete only a random selection of one or two files would not work.I checked the drive permissions and was only able to see "You have custom access."This is not modifiable. I attempted to alter my access permissions from the router, but made no headway.

Assuming, with little data, that the FAT32 was perhaps at issue I unmounted the network drive, connected it by USB and reformated as above. After formating, I tried the same procedure with no change in outcome.I am nearly 100% sure that when the drive was connected by usb, I could delete to my heart's content, but not when it is connected via network.I will note that the drive is accessed by first connecting to the router, which the mac sees as a "PC." This access can be controlled, but can be set to anon.When I connect I see two identically named folders.One is a sharepoint folder and one is a volume. They access the same data. Deleting thorugh either route has identical outcomes.

Applications :: Preventing Invisible Files When Saving Directly From Excel To Network Drive

Mar 19, 2009

I work in a cross platform environment (windows/mac) where we typically save common files to a shared network drive. I've found when I save a file directly from excel (as opposed to saving it locally, then copying it over) it created an invisible ._filename file in the same directory. I know it's a property/resource file for the file that I just created, but it's a little confusing for some windows users and just clutters up the share directory. Is there any way to prevent the creation of the ._filename file while still saving directly from excel?

(I'd prefer not to save locally, then move to network drive - it's cleaner for me if I can just save directly) So far, I've found that this only happens with MS Office. I've opened a sql file in textwrangler and komodo, edited it, and saved it to the network and no invisible files are created.

NOTE: this is different the the fix that apple had published regarding not creating DS_Store files - that refers to copying files from the finder to a network drive and I don't have any problems with that.

OS X :: Finder No Longer Showing Windows Network?

Aug 4, 2010

I hope that this post is original, but if not I apologize. I did some searching, but found nothing specifically in the area where I'm having networking problems.First, I very much enjoy using the newest MacMini (10.6). I got it a few months ago, and have been slowly migrating from Windows. This is where I am having difficulty solving an issue.

In the beginning I was able to network the three computers I have together and was able to "see" the two windows machines in the Finder under "network"; the laptop (Vista) and the desktop (XP). Soon there after, the Finder stopped listing the two windows machines in the Finder's "network" category. The odd thing about this issue is that by this point in time I was able to "see" the Mac from both Windows machines (dragging files from windows to the mac), but not the other way around.

Now, and the reason for this post, neither lists each other (Mac vs. Windows). I can still "see" the windows machines from each other's Explorer, but alas not the Mac.To wade through allot of questions that may crop up, I have gone through all three machine's networking "sharing" setups, and I cannot locate where the problem lies. I can also use the networking utility from the Mac and be able to "ping" the other machines. I can use Safari and "address" (http) pages from the machines, but nothing in the way of "drag-n-drop" files from the Finder.I greatly appreciate this forum, and in other areas I was able to solve other issues.

OS X :: Auto-mount A Network Drive After Connecting To A Wireless Network?

Sep 22, 2010

I am trying to figure out how to automatically connect a MacBook to a network drive after connecting to the wireless network that the drive is connected to.

Here is the situation:

I back-up my wife's MacBook via Time Machine to an external hard drive that is connected to my Apple desktop. It works great! I even have her system setup to automatically mount the drive upon log-in. Unfortunately, after leaving our wireless signal and then coming back the time machine drive isn't automatically mounted since she isn't "logging back-in". Is there an automator script that can be built to automatically connect to drive X after connecting to wireless network Z?

OS X V10.4 :: Built-in FTP Not Showing All Files

Apr 25, 2012

I have my 15" flat panel connected to a Topfield 7160 PVR by an ethernet cable. The Topfield has a built-in FTP server. So, using the built-in FTP (read only) facility in OS X Tiger, I can show the Topfield files on the Finder.

Recently, however, the FTP facility has not been accessing all folders on the Topfield properly. Some folders are shown as empty when they are not. When I disconnect and reconnect, different folders are shown as empty.I have tested the Topfield FTP server with the Cyberduck client. Everything shows properly. So, there is an issue with the OSX Tiger FTP client and/or how it sends commands to the Topfield FTP server.

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 15 inch 800Mhz flat panel
