I would like to direct my Documents, Pictures, and "Other" to 3 folders in my downloads folder upon downloading them, either with Safari, with Finder, Folder Actions, Automator, or with any other free tool that does not take up too much CPU load.

OS X Mavericks :: Automator Batch Rename - Removing Type Of File With No Extension

Jun 25, 2014

I've set up an Automator to batch rename files. The renaming works fine. The problem arises when it renames a file which doesn't contain it's extension (a common MacOS practice). Is there some way to make sure it preserves the filetype? For instance, this works fine: 

Original:

Output:

 And this results in an error: 

Original:

Output (file type has been replaced with generic "document" type)

Mac Mini :: Open .ods Zip File Which Save As .cpgz File Extension?

Apr 10, 2012

I try to open an Open Office spread sheet and it simply saves the file as another file with the .cpgz extension which does the same thing.  This did not happen a couple weeks ago; I think my download for Apple updates may be the culprit.  My OS X is now 10.7.3, I believe originally it was 10.7.2 but I could be wrong. 

The original document is a zip archive but now "saves as" a .cpgz archive.  I have tried the "Unarchiver", which I just downloaded, but it only creates another file with subfolders, none of which appear to have my original spread sheet.  (To be honest, I never noticed this Open Office spread sheet file was a zip file until a few minutes ago when I tried to unsuccessfully open it).

Safari :: Automatically Downloads "Unknown" File?

Jun 10, 2012

In the last few days I have found that Safari automatically downloads files called "Unknown". It sometimes happens when I am using another application so it doesn't seem related to something that I have just done. Also I find that Safari is DEAD slow with some pages or part of the content of some pages. Here's what I have tried so far. I have deleted all the plist files in both the user account and the library folder in the system folder. I have zapped the PRAM, rebuilt permissions and restarted in safe mode. I have Resert Safari and Emptied the Cache under the Safari menu. I have also updated my antivirus and run it. The sites that load slowly do not behave the same way in Firefox, but I would like to use Safari for most of these most of the time. Any suggestions of a cure would be most welcome.

OS X Mavericks :: After Copying File From NTFS To HFS Volume - File Size Changed When Viewing In Windows

Aug 27, 2014

I have a Mac Air running Mavericks on a HFS partition and Windows 7 on a BOOTCAMP NTFS partition. I have some files that I want to read/write from/to both systems. Since OS X can't write NTFS and Windows can't write HFS either, and I don't want to use any 3rd-party tools/drivers, in OS X, I copy those files from NTFS to its HFS partition, make changes, then switch to Windows and sync them back to NTFS. 

The problem is, after I copied a file from NTFS to HFS in OS X, it seemed ok. But when I switched to Windows, the very copied file in HFS partition had its size changed (bigger) although I didn't make any changes to it in OS X yet. This happens to almost every file I copied, text and binary. For those text files, I tried to open it with EditPlus in Windows and EditPlus reports the correct size on the status bar.

MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

OS X :: Music Won't Play - No File Extension

Dec 4, 2010

I have close to a hundred music files that won't play, they have no file ending (.*). They were transferred from a now formatted computer (no way to recover). I have no idea how to get them to work. If I give them an AAC ending RealPlayer will give me the following information but it won't play them. Since it tells me the length of the song it must somehow recognize it.

Sample song: [URL]

OS X :: Lost File Extension When Run Images Through Automator

Oct 17, 2008

I have a large collection of files that I'd like to run through Automator to batch edit some qualities of these pictures. However, these images have been submitted from multiple people, moved around, and just "existed" for long enough that some of the files have lost their file extensions. The problem occurs when I try to run them through Automator. Everything runs fine until it comes across a file without an extension, then it stops, and displays an error message. Does anyone know a way around this in Automator? Does an Applescript exist that would be able to add these file extensions back in?

OS X :: Preview Is Unable To Open The File With Extension .dat?

Jul 8, 2010

IWhen I mount and open it, it contains three files: autorun.inf, edisk.dat and SVOLBRO.EXE. I am assuming that it is the edisk.dat file that I should be reading but I can not open it. I have spoken to the company who say that it should contain an encrypted pdf file. I have tried copying and renaming the file to edisk.pdf and then using preview but I am getting an error message saying the preview is unable to open the file.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder - Replace A File With Another File

Aug 21, 2014

I want a game to play my favorite song when the game is supposed to be playing its own theme song.  The theme song is in a sound file that is located on my computer's hard drive.  The theme song sound file is in the same format as the sound file that contains my favorite song, so I don't need to convert any files.  What is the easiest way to make the game think that the sound file I want the game to use is the sound file of the theme song?

Applications :: Download Embroidery File While Keeping Extension Intact?

Apr 11, 2009

I have a customer who owns a Mac and when she attempted to download an unzipped embroidery file (jef extension) she was greeted with the message this was not possible, that it had to have a .dmf extension and she was given the option to use both (nameoffile.jef.dmf)This did not work at all.

How do you download an embroidery file while keeping the extension intact?She transfers her file to a jump drive and then to her machine. We tried downloading directly to the jump drive - same message.She is going to try to use her Windows parallel and see if that will work.

I have some .numbers files that I need a friend to look at on her pc with Excel 2003 SP3, but it's not working for her. I have changed the extension to .xls but it's no good, as when she tries to open them they are all gobbledegook.

Here's a snapshot of the various files I have, but notice how the icons for each is different, or rather that there are two distinct designs? Some of them DO open in Excel, but some do not.

Safari :: It Doesn't Keep Past Downloads In Downloads List

Apr 26, 2012

This problem I've been having started when the latest version of Safari moved from a Downloads window to a Downloads pop-up pane. My expectation as to how the pane should work is this: the 20 most recent downloads are shown in the list, and when a new download begins, the oldest download is removed from the list, thereby keeping the new list updated with the 20 latest downloads. My problem is that while the pane still keeps 20 past downloads listed, they're not always recent downloads. For example, when I download a file, the file will typically remain in the list until I begin a new download, at which point the slightly earlier download will be removed from the list, while even older downloads remain listed. So at the moment, listed are five recent downloads and fifteen downloads from many months ago, while downloads from days or hours ago have been removed from the list.In Preferences I have (and always have) "Remove download list items" set to "Manually." Currently I am running the lasted versions of OSX (10.7.3) and Safari (5.1.5).
