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

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 Leopard :: Unknown Files Showing Up On Drive - What Kind Of Files These Are
First let me start by saying I'm a newbie to Macs. I've got the Mac Book Pro which I love. Anyway, I've been getting some empty files showing up on my Macintosh HD, I guess that's the root drive, that have a bunch of gobbly gook for file names. For example, %B3a%AC%9A%C9{. I open them and there is nothing in them. Does anyone know what this is?

OS X :: Files Transferred To External Hard Drive Not Showing Up
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
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 V10.7 Lion :: Some Files Not Showing Up On NTFS Drive
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.

OS X Leopard :: Network Drive Hidden Files?
When I modify files saved on network drives, a hidden file is created on the network drive that bothers my co-workers. I originally dealt with a .DS_Store file in every folder I accessed on the network drive. I researched and found the support topic related to this issue. I used the command:

defaults write DSDontWriteNetworkStores true

There are no more .DS_Store files, but now, every time I modify something on the network drive, a hidden file appears for the modified file. For instance, I save a Word file Doc-1.doc and a ._Doc-1.doc hidden file is created. Also, if I move or copy a file to the network drive, the same thing (drag and drop x.pdf and ._x.pdf hidden folder.

OS X :: Copying Large Files To Network Drive
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 Leopard :: Missing Files/folders On Network Drive?
I plug a drive directly into my macbook, it shows 1374 folders within my itunes library (in finder)... when I plug the drive into the Airport extreme and try to access it via my network it only shows 1246 items and those folders can not be accessed via finder... but they will still play? I have screenshots showing my issue and the "TV Shows" folder is one of the folders I've noticed isn't there. The drive was formatted on a windows PC as I also use that computer to access this drive.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Copy Files To A Network Drive
I have a couple of USB drives attached to my UR Robotics 8200 router. The router uses an Intel processor and Linux. The drives are formatted for FAT32. You can create users in the router and give them read and or write access to the drives. When I first got the laptop it found the 8200 and I connected to the drives using my user account. It worked fine until I upgraded to 10.5.8. Then I suddenly could not copy a file to the drives. I can create folders, delete files and folders, copy files from the drives, but I cannot copy a file to the drive. I get an error saying I do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items.

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

ITunes Mac :: Move Media To New Network Drive Then Update Library With Location Of All Files?
I have just set up a NAS drive at home and want to move all of my iTunes media from my Time Capsule to my new NAS (TC is full so want to dedicate it to backups). My current setup is the media is on the network drive but my iTunes library is in the default location (i.e. I did not set it up with the library data files on the network). Is there an easy way for me to move my media to the new network drive and then just update my library with the new location of all the files? I would rather not have to delete all the media from the library and reimport it as I would like to keep all the meta-data (i.e. times played, genre, etc.).

OS X Leopard :: Linksys Router Showing Old Network
I currently have an older linksys wireless G router (bunny ears) with my network info on it - working fine. I just got a room mate and she has a newer wireless G router that we would like to swap out the old one with. I thought I could just plug it in and it would automatically find my network and I could log on. Not so. It still shows her old network at her other house and doesn't show mine. I'm guessing I need to reset the newer router?

OS X :: Finder No Longer Showing Windows Network?
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?
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 Leopard :: Computers Showing Up Twice In Network List Even With Smb Disabled?
I've just purchased an Airport Express and figured it was time to get the network into shape.I've got 4 macs (MBP, MB, iMac, and PB) and one Windows box. In the sharing list, 2 of the macs show up only once, and 2 of them show up twice. I think I've sourced this to their names. Two of the computers, Peaches and Footlong have names shot enough that their sharing names match the name WINS gives them, the other 2 computers have names that are longer, Living Room iMac is an example. This appears to be an invalid WINS name so it then shows up again as Living Room iMac with a nice imac symbol, then also as MACINTOSH with a windows box icon.

If anybody knows how to get rid of this so I will only see the computers as macs and so there aren't these other non existent computers on the network, that would be great!Also, I've tried to set up permissions on one computer that I don't have a user account on. When I try to connect using the ID i set up in its sharing preference pane, it says it's invalid, any ideas?

OS X Leopard :: Network Monitor Showing Constant Download Of 3Mbps...
Ever since yesterday afternoon, whenever my (pretty much brand new) iMac at work is logged in, it seems to be downloading data at a constant rate of about 3Mbps (I monitor it using iStat Menus). I have no idea what this is, as there are no new updates to download, and I don't appear to have any viruses after a full scan. I have also used Little Snitch to try to determine which process might be doing this but no luck so far.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what this might be, or how I could go about diagnosing the problem? I'm not too handy with the back-end of OS X so I could use some advice if you have any.
