Applications :: Need App To Create Text File Of All Folder Names On A Hard Drive

Feb 9, 2010

I just started using an eSata cradle to start doing my backup and archiving (I'm a photographer). Once I fill up the drive I'll be putting them in a safe but I'd like to have a printout bundled with them that lists all the jobs that are on the drive (the jobs are separated and named by folder on the drive)

I could go through and write them all down manually but I'd love to have a program that could automate it for me.

I'm working on a macpro that is running OSX 10.4

OS X :: How To Clon And Copy The Content From One An External Hard Drive To New Hard Drive

Oct 14, 2009

with cloning/copying the content one an external hard drive onto a new external hard drive. Basically, I have a 500GB FW400 drive which I use to store my media files. It's full, so I purchased a 1TB FW800 drive to replace it. Obviously, I thought I could simply copy and paste the media files from the old drive to the new one.I cannot copy the media files to my internal drive first as my internal drive is only 250GB and nearly full itself.I have used Disk Utility to attempt to close the old drive to the new drive, but keep getting "insufficient space" errors.

OS X Mavericks :: Invisible Text Hidden By Hard Return In Folder Icon

Jun 20, 2014

In some of my folders, the inside folders appear to be blank and have no text. When I click on the folder icon, the name of the folder is there, but there appears to be a hard return at the end of the text. When I delete the hard return, the text becomes visible. 

Rather than go to each folder and do this - why this is happening, and how to correct all the folders wherever they may be on any disk.

OS X Mavericks :: Can Create Fusion Drive Using SSD Partition?

Sep 6, 2014

Can I create a fusion drive using an ssd partition?

I'll explain myself better: I have a 500GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

What I would like to do is keeping Mac OS on a 250GB SSD partition and with the other 250GB partition I would like to create a Fusion Drive that does not affect my primary SSD-only partition.

OS X :: Can I Copy DVD To My Hard Drive?

Jul 1, 2010

My MacBook is Tiger 10.4.11, all my software is up to date and I use the Mac in a pretty vanilla way.

My question is about the Mac's DVD software: I'd like to be able to make copies of a (non-commercial) DVD. Can I copy it to my hard drive and then burn copies? Would they be readable on a DVD player as well as a computer?

OS X :: How To Copy Hard Drive

Apr 22, 2009

I'm about to go buy a MBP from a local store. The thing is, today I placed an order for 4GB RAM and a 7200RPM drive, which will get here in 2-3 days time.

I really don't want to open the box tonight and start messing around with it if it won't even save because once I install the new HDD a few days later it will install over. But at the same time I know I won't be able to not!

I don't know what I can really do about it. Please tell me Macs have some cool utility to clone a drive, shutdown, unlplug drive, plug new drive in, during boot it will apply clone?

OS X :: How To Copy Old Hard Drive To New One

Jun 19, 2010

I replaced my internal hard drive on my iMac and I am trying to restore the files from my old internal hard drive. I purchased an external hard drive enclosure and when I plug my old internal hard drive into my iMac via USB, I can access all of the files.

I want to have access to the files from the old drive without leaving it plugged into the iMac (I want to use the old HD as an external back up for another computer (PC).

I did a clean instal of Snow Leopard on the new internal hard drive and did not have time machine back ups (I do now).

I have another external hard drive used as back up with Time Machine in my iMac

I downloaded SuerDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner but neither will allow me to copy the old hard drive to my new internal hard drive. I was reading in the SuperDuper! instructions about "Sparse" image, but not sure if that is the best way to go.

I also thought of just copying the old internal HD to my existing external HD, but there is not enough available space.

OS X :: How To Copy Over A Hard Drive To A New Machine

Mar 19, 2010

I've just ordered a new iMac to replace an older MacBook Pro. My pro has all the applications on it that I use and I'd like to just duplicate that onto the new iMac.

Both are running the same version of Snow Leopard. Is there an easy way to copy these over? I remember an Apple store employee telling me you could image or copy one hard drive directly to the other so you don't have to reinstall everything.

Can anyone tell me how to do this? I'm not a mac expert so this is completely new to me.

OS X :: Create A Bootable Backup Of Internal Hard Drive?

MacBook Pro :: Copy System To New Hard Drive?

Oct 2, 2010

I just upgraded my HD on my new MBP13.

I upgraded it from 250GB to a 500GB 7200RPM WD Scorpio Black. However the noise was definitely noticeable for me and I have changed it back to the 250 5400RPM GB Seagate Momentus. Sucks to have lost the money

Now the thing is I need 500 GB and I want it to be a internal hard disk. I was thinking about buying 500 GB 5400RPM Scorpio Blue or a Seagate 5400RPM Momentus. Not decided yet(any recommendation?).
The problem is though I want to begin using my system. I want to install programs etc. Is there an easy way to copy the whole system to the new hard drive when it arrives?

I have another (windows) pc with an external NFTS disk.

May 25, 2008

Probably a stupid question but I can't figure this out as it is not covered in the User's Guide or in the FAQs on the Fantom website. I have an PowerMac G4 with an old Fantom 120GB external drive which is nearly full. I have purchased a Fantom Drive High Speed USB 2.0 (750GB.) How do I transfer data from my old Fantom to the new one?

OS X :: Cannot Copy Data To External USB Hard Drive

Aug 17, 2009

Macbook pro 13' running 10.5.8 has intermittent issues with usb 2.0 mass storage drives but not jump drives. Here is the issue, my gf just got a brand new mac book pro 13'. This is great for her no more asking to use my unibody macbook. She plugs in the drive I have used for a very long time with my mac my pac etc. with not a hint of issue. The drive shows up copy's stuff off ok. However when it came time to return the data back to the drive it gets about 10% through and just hangs. Here is what I have done. I first thought ok might need a reboot. Then I went with the ok I will check her disk for issues. This is a 3 day old mac book by the way. I found random permissions errors with quick time which has never been run. After the fix the issue goes away for that boot.

The issues seems to come back after a re-boot or so. I go ok enough of this I format the mac with the system disk, then I update to the latest updates from apple. Plug in the drive and still having issues. Run the permissions repair same issues exactly format to format. I have also run the deep test off the system disk the machine checks out through that so I have ruled out ram on her system as a possible culprit. I am at a loss on this machine. I have gone so far as to format the external drive replace the data from my network server and try that. Still no luck. On my box there is no issue it time machines great it copy's data like a usb 2.0 drive should.

MacBook Pro :: Will 4GB RAM Create Performance On 500GB Hard Drive Speed?

Aug 22, 2009

I just switched out my 160GB hard drive on my 13" MBP for a 500GB. I do notice that things are a little slower now as far as opening up apps and such. Would upgrading to the 4GB of RAM instead of the 2 I have make a difference or is that the trade i get for running a 5200 500GB HD.
