OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Delete Account And All Associated Data But Not The Owners?

Mar 31, 2012

I have been using a borrowed Macbook Pro (5.4) OS X 10.6.8 so that I could learn some of the differences between the Mac & the PC's that I am familiar with.Before returning the Macbook to it's owner I'd like to wipe out the information I've put onto it while I had it. Documents, passwords, history etc. I'd like to return the laptop as it was when I rec'd it. The person I've borrowed it from is quite familiar with Mac systems, and I'd like to be sure my data is securly removed.

The person I borrowed from has their user account on the computer locked, and of course I can't damage their files in any way. I do have athority to create a new account.

I'm not sure if there is more information you need so that you can help me, but this should get the ball rolling.

Software :: Any Way To Delete Previous Owner Account Without Password?

Oct 14, 2008

My girlfriend just purchased a 1 year old Mac with OS X 10.5.2. Incredible as this seems, the previous owner mistakenly left all of her old information on the computer! We would like to delete this, but have been unable to contact her and get her password. Is there another way we can erase/delete this information?

So I bought a Logitech MX Revolution -- I can't get used to its feel. The G9 is so much nicer n the hand...

I had installed the control center software, configured it, used the mouse for half a day, wanted to cry.

So I'm about to return the mouse, but I can't remove the System Preferences applet and can't find any official uninstall mechanism.

Applications :: Two Versions Of Safari Installed - How To Delete Previous One

Sep 29, 2010

How do I go about deleting applications? I have two versions of Safari on my computer. Version 4.03 or something like that, and the new 5.02. I know I upgraded to the 5 when it came out and I had assumed I was running that since then. Turns out I've still been running 4, and was having an issue with the "New Tab" not working. Thats when I noticed I wasn't running 5. (if you follow me?)... I just redownloaded 5 b/c I thought it would overwrite the 4 version, but it didn't, now I have two Safari's and when I do a spot light search 2 show up as well with no indicator as to which is which. If it matters, I am running Snow Leopard with everything up to date (at least I think? considering I thought this was...)

MacBook Pro :: If I Delete A User Account Does That Delete His Library?

Jul 12, 2009

I never use "User Accounts" on my MacBook. So I don't know much about them.

If I delete one User Account, will it delete that user's libraries, such as their music, movies, documents, etc?

Also, will it delete the programs that were installed under that user's account, but are accessible by all users?

Applications :: Will Apple Mail Delete All Messages In My Gmail Account

Jul 21, 2010

I had a hotmail account and about a month ago apple mail deleted all my messages from the hotmail account, therefore I am unable to access any of them from anywhere else except my mac.

I learned that that was due to me leaving the box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message." Now I fixed that and moved to gmail, as I was able to upload all hotmail messages to my gmail account through tuhunderbird.

Since I am not a big fan of Thunderbird as it is giving me some password issues, today I set up the gmail imap (I think) accunt on my apple mail, but there is no box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message" for gmail in prefrences, just for hotmail.

Now I am scared, will apple mail delete all my messages from the gmail server, and if it will, how do I prevent it from doing so?

ITunes :: Can't Log Into Account Information Or Purchase Content

Mar 19, 2012

I'm on my 14th email to iTunes support and after 14 days of not being able to log into my iTunes account, I'm getting a bit desperate. Every time I log in, I'm redirected to the login screen that asks for my account name and password. I've reset my password 4x and Apple has done it twice. Still no change. I'm not getting any response that my password is wrong and I'm allowed to fill in my credentials as many times as I want. It's just redirecting me to the login screen and asking me again. If I log out and back in, it tells me after login that I need to press "ok" to verify my account information, after which it redirects me to... the login screen.

OS X :: If I Delete A New User Login - Will It Delete Data On Admin?

Jun 26, 2009

I was running my iMac just in admin, which I know is frowned upon but that's the way I had it. I had a corrupt preferences file and I couldn't save any of my passwords etc Finally created a new user and reinstalled everything and it works fine. Had to replace all my passwords for my apps etc but other than that not that big a deal.

Question is can I now delete the other user now that I have a new admin login?:

It is just taking up storage space with a user which is corrupted but I don't want to erase the data in that user and also delete all my data in the new user as well.

Software :: Using Password For Standard User Account / Safari Is Asking For A Keychain Password

May 11, 2009

I'm working on a Mac-mini running OS X Tiger. I've got one admin account setup and 5 or so standard accounts. I'm configuring a connection to a shared folder on a network server on the standard accounts and I wanted to connect to that share using an account id that is DIFFERENT than the standard account id. I enter that id and the correct password and I check "save password in keychain" (or whatever that check box says) and I get prompted to enter the "keychain password" to unlock the keychain. The problem is, I never setup a keychain password for the standard user account. I'v tried the password for the administrator account (even though I can't specify the admin id anywhere) and I've tried the password for the standard user account, neither of which work.

However, I can still get successfully connected to the shared folder. I just don't want the user to have to enter the password each time they login.

Additionally, after going through this, Safari is now asking for a keychain password for the "login" keychain when it first starts up and loads the default Apple.com home page.

In some other cases, it displays the name of the song, and below that, the name of the ALBUM. All fields in song info are filled out correctly.

Secondly, how do I change my password on here?
