OS X :: How To Find Size Of Selected Files As A Whole?

Dec 30, 2009

I'm used to being able to find out the file size of a group of files I've selected in Windows' Explorer or Desktop by right-clicking one of the selected files and selecting Properties. I haven't been able to find a way to do anything similar in OSX Snow Leopard. Is it possible to find out the size of a group of user-selected files?

OS X :: Transfer Selected Files From / To Macs?

Jun 13, 2009

I'm getting the new MBP to replace my Black Macbook. This is backed up on an external HD through time machine, but when i get my new mac i want to be able to transfer only my music and photos and videos to the new machine. How can i do this? The guy at the apple store said a combination of Ethernet cable and a program called 'SuperDuper' will sort this out? Can anyone attest to this, or does anyone have a better method?

OS X :: Won't Show Size Of Data Instead Of Size Of Files

Nov 14, 2010

All my smaller files show up as 4kb in finder. I know this is because on HFS+ that is the minimum allocation for a file, but it really doesn't help when trying to get a sense of how large files are when you're thinking of deploying them to the web, or glancing to see which are longer/which have been changed etc. is there any way to set Finder to display the size of files based on how much data is in them.

OS X :: Get Info Or TimeStamp With Seconds About Selected Files

Sep 21, 2009

I'm trying to get more specific information about a selection of files - in particular, the seconds (and even milliseconds if possible) relating to the time-stamp for each. I've tried changing the international system prefs to full format but this seems not to have had any impact on finder or get info.

OS X :: Softwares That Can Display Files From Selected Folders?

Dec 27, 2009

Are there any softwares that can display files from selected folders all at once (for ex. in a single folder view)?

And those files could be sorted regardless of which folders they are from.

Not sure if I've made my point clear....I tried to search by "file manger", but what came up weren't what I wanted.

Let me do some simpler illustration.

folder1 contains file A,C,D

folder2 contains file B,E,H

folder3 contains file F,G,I

suppose there exists a software, such that when I select folder1,2,3, all contained files will be displayed in the order of A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I...however, the files themselves are still stored in their original folders. They are just viewed in this single window.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.1.3 - Importing From Compact Flash / No Importable Files Selected

Sep 12, 2014

I just purchased a new 15" MacBookPro,  2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16GB memory and using OS X 10.9.4

I have a SanDisk Compact Flash disk with MXF files on it from my Canon XF 100.

I have had no problem importing the files onto my MacPro. using a Ultra Card reader with USB2

But now I am using a Transcen USB3 Card reader on my new MacBookPro and it does not recognize any of those same files to import.

I get the message, "No importable files selected."

The only difference I can see between the old MacPro and new MacBookPro is that when I select "Import Media" the CANON XF drive shows up as a DEVICE on the MacBookPro instead of a CAMERA like it does on the MacPro.

Software :: Finding Contextual Menu Item / Hardlink Selected Files

Jun 22, 2010

I am looking for a contextual menu item for Mac OS X, which allows me to create hardlink(s) for the currently selected file(s) either "here" (at the current directory) or "elsewhere" (filebrowser follows for selecting a target directory).

So far my research within general Web Search Engines (Google, Yahoo) and Software Repositories [URL]) with all possible permutations of my search terms "hard link hardlink contextual menu item cm" was without success.

OS X :: How To Find Out IPhoto Size In MB / GB

Jun 14, 2010

I have iPhoto 08. When it's open, it tells me at the bottom how many events I have. What I would like to know is how big iPhoto in total is. The reason for this is I'd like to make a handy backup of iPhoto on a flash drive/memory stick and need to buy the right sized memory stick.

Anyone know how I can find the size of my iPhoto album.

I do have backups for it in my Time Machine drive and on my iDisk, so this copy would just be for convenience.

Software :: Transferring Files From Lacie To Pc / Itunes Unable To Find Music Files?

Aug 15, 2009

I have a Lacie external hard disk that was originally formatted for PCs. I have some files there, but more importantly, my iTunes library is saved directly on the Lacie (I have everything on apple lossless, so they are some big files). I will keep using this PC while connected to the Lacie hard disk to syncro my iPod.

The problem is that I bought a mac now and I wanted the Lacie hard disk to be able to transfer files from mac to pc and vice versa. I have already read that I would have to copy the files that are on the Lacie, reformat the Lacie and then paste the files back. My only doubt is that if I do this reformatting, will I have any problems using the iTunes library while connected to my pc and iPod?

I just ask that because every time I changed any iTunes library folder on the computer, the iTunes would say that the music file couldn�t be found and ask me if I wanted to look for the file. I didn�t want to reformat the Lacie to later find out that I would have to �look for� every single music file, because that would be nearly impossible. I don�t know if I was able to make my question really clear�

OS X :: How To Know Files Real Size In Mac

Jun 7, 2009

I started a transfer of a large file, but it did not finish, but the DMG file is showing me the 7 GB Full Size of the Finished file! But I know that the file stopped midway and only transferred half of it, around 3.5 GB. Is there any way to see in the Finder / Inspector the real size of this file which should only be 3.5 GB and not the 7 GB it is displaying in the Inspector?

Applications :: Compressing Files To Smallest Size

May 29, 2009

So I know in Leopard and probably any OS for Mac's you can compress your files, but is there any way to compress them even more? I had a file that was 321mb's and when I compressed it, it brought it down to 317mb's. Obviously that didn't do me any good. Does anyone have a program or another suggestion?

OS X :: Calculating Multiple Files Size In Finder?

Sep 3, 2009

This is one of the things I haven't figured out how to do yet on my mac. I miss this feature which was so easy in windows. Select multiple files and click properties and you get a file size count. If you do the same thing on a mac you get a number open for each file. If you need a cumulative total quickly its a pain in the butt to add each file.

What am I missing here?

Also, any way to display file size at the bottom of a finder window? When you click a file, it says "1 of X selected" and the amount of hard drive space free which is cool, but file size at the bottom would be nice to have.

MacBook Pro :: Limiting Size Of VM Swap Files Possible?

Jun 13, 2010

I have the new 15" with SSD (80 GB Intel) and HDD (500 GB). I have put System and Apps on the SSD, while the user's home directory is on the HDD. So far so good, performance is great. But I have run into the problem of getting the "Memory on the startup disk is too small" warning twice. That's a pretty unpleasant experience, with apps freezing etc. Of course, nominally my startup disk (the SSD) is far from full, since the apps occupy maybe 30 GB and the System maybe 15. I should have over 30 GB of available disk space. So what happened? I found out that the culprit is virtual memory. Somehow my system at some point thought that it needed a lot of VM (around 40 GB), and the VM daemon started writing swap files (up to 40 of them!) on the startup volume, until it got full. After quitting some apps, somehow the situation gets corrected and the system automatically reduces the number of the swap files again.

What are my options to keep this unpleasant problem from occurring again in the future? Here are the ones I can think of:
1. Move the VM directory to HDD. I don't like to do this because it would significantly hurt performance.
2. Create an additional partition (~10-20 GB or so) on the SSD, then move the VM directory to that partition. This way, I always know the max. size of VM and I won't be surprised. Disadvantages: I will need to repartition the SSD and re-install system and all apps. And I may be wasting precious space on the SSD.
3. The ideal solution would be an option in the VM daemon to limit the total VM size. I have perused the man pages, but I can only see an option to set the size of each individual swap file, not the overall VM size.

Software :: Need The Full Size Files Of The Photos To A DVD?

Jul 23, 2008

I have exported the albums from iPhoto. I want burned to the desktop--which should return the photos to their original file size. When I burn to a DVD via the Burn folder--the photos are compressed.

They are usless to me in this compressed state. I need the full size files of the photos to print quality pictures and to load onto a PC for other work requiring large sized files for quality printed pictures. My DVD does not show up on my desktop so I can just drag the folder to the DVD to burn it I have to use the burn folder.

IMac :: Viewing Combined Size Of Multiple Files?

Apr 21, 2009

If I have a bunch of files and I want to see the combined size of these files, on windows I would simply mark each file, right click one of them and hit properties. If I do that on my new mac mini and then hit More Info or whatever it says, then it just opens the info window for each file - it doesn't give me one where it says the combined amount of files, size and such. Is it possible to do this somehow?

Applications :: Won't Work With Iphoto Library / Size Doesn't Match Folder Size

Dec 31, 2009

why the iphoto library file size in the finder appears to be a certain size, while iphoto itself reports a very different size. Is there any way to recover any disk space or reconcile the numbers here? Please see the attachments below, it may make a bit more sense that way. I would like to recover the disk space and if it really is a 16gb difference somewhere.
