OS X Mavericks :: How To Copy Folder From Hidden Library Folder That Is Not On Startup Drive

Jun 5, 2014

I have a hard drive on my 2008 MacPro that's problematic and so I bought a new drive and installed Mavericks on it and am booting just fine on the new drive. There is however, one folder in the Library/Preferences folder that I need to copy over to the new drive.  All the tricks for accessing the Library folder work great on the start up drive, but I can't seem to access the Library folder on the old drive (both drives in the MacPro as it has 4 drive bays), even though the drive will mount.  How can I see that Library folder on the old drive?  Note  while I can mount the old drive, I can't boot to it.

OS X :: External Drive As Another Folder / Move And Copy Files?

Apr 27, 2010

I have two Macs, a desktop PM G5 and a laptop Black Macbook, both running 10.5.8. Currently when using the laptop I can see and access the PMG5 and its files through my wireless connection. I'm planning on picking up an external drive, and I'd just like this confirmed, as in its access ability. If I hook up the external drive to the G5 so I can leave it there, and access its files through the G5. will my laptop also be able to access it through the G5. In other words, when I access the G5 from the laptop over wireless, will the external drive appear as just another folder and/or device on the G5 and I'll be able to move and copy files just like I already do?

MacBook Pro :: Consolidating Copy Of ITunes Folder On External Drive Via Terminal

Jun 28, 2012

I've recently got a new MacBook Pro, and for at least 6 years or more, I've been using Windows to handle my iTunes library. At one point, when trying to transfer my library, somehow I lost ALL my music. As a result, I learned to back it all up...And I learned to be patient when doing so.Any way, I want to make sure that when I transfer my files THIS time, I do it right. I just need to consolidate my iTunes library that I have backed up to an external hard drive to another folder on the same drive.

Then when I move it to iTunes on my Mac, I only have to put the files into the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder.That said, I'm fairly decent with using the terminal; I've used Ubuntu for a while, and right now I'm using Fedora. I would use the terminal on my Mac, but I really don't want to use it there; I'll stay safe and let my Fedora computer do the work.That said, I know that both Mac and Fedora have "rsync" and "find" as part of the UNIX kernel both are built off of. With all that out of the way.

My question is simply which commands I ought to use to manually consolidate the files in the iTunes folder to a separate folder on the same external hard drive. I also happen to have a number of duplicate files, for some reason, except the duplicates are sometimes .mp3 files, while others are .m4a files. While the majority of my music has been restored because of "Purchased" section of the iTunes Store, I'm unsure of which files I'm looking to preserve; Do I just copy the mp3 files, or both? I hate doing music database repair.

OS X Mavericks :: Copy Time Machine Backups From Desktop To Reformatted External Drive

Dec 10, 2014

My time machine backups to an external drive stopped with a message that the backup could not be done because the drive could not be repaired and needed to be reformatted.  Prior to reformatting I copied the TM backup file of 250GB to my desktop.  My internal drive is 500GB and this only leaves me with 33GB of available space. I then reformatted the drive with the proper OS extended journaled and GUID partition. The external drive is 500GB.  When I try to copy the backup file from the desktop to the reformatted drive the process begins normally with the message  "preparing to copy files" but as the preparation process reaches 13,000,000 files it stops with the message "there is not enough sufficient space to copy files" even though it never even got to the actual file transfer.  I have tried copying the backups in small batches to the new drive but I get an error message that backup files cannot be modified.

ITunes :: Unable To Copy Folder From External Hard Drive "file In Use"?

Feb 9, 2012

I am trying to copy my iTunes folder from one external hard drive to another external hard drive but I keep getting an error message "unable to copy because file (song name) is in use". It starts copying for a while but keeps stopping when the error message pops up.  No songs are playing so I am not sure why it says certain song files are in use.

Software :: Copy Folder Deletes Original Folder Contents THEN Copies New Ones

Oct 29, 2008

I've come across a strange behaviour of Finder when copying a folder over another with the same name. I'm using 10.4.11.

Say I have a folder named "Test" and it contains "File1" and "File2" and I copy it over another folder named "Test", which contains "File3" and "File4".
After copying I would expect folder "Test" to contain all four files, but it doesn't! It will only contain the two that I copied over, the original two will be deleted.

Is there any way to have finder replace files of the same name when copying and retain all other files in the destination folder?

Before:
/Test/File3, File4After:
/Test/File1, File2Desired:
/Test/File1, File2, File3, File4

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Copy The Folder Structure Without The Folder Contents

Apr 28, 2012

I would like to create an archive of important application installers and I will sync the contents between two systems MacPro and Macbook Pro. 

I need to pull the names of the application/developers from somewhere so I figured I would use the Application Support directory. 

So I need a way to copy this directories folder structure without any of the file contents.  Is there an easy way to do this.  I found a post with an Automator script but the link is dead [URL]

I also found this post that refers to doing it in terminal but since it is the app support directory I am wary to do this as I am not familiar with terminal at all and I am not clear on what exactly to write in the old_dir / new_dir section.  I figure it would be something like this /Library/Application Support but I dont want to make a mistake. 

Here is the Terminal command:

cd old_dir
find . -type d -depth -print | cpio -pd new_dir

OS X :: Favorites Folder - Copy Of Whole Folder Instead Working As Shortcut

Sep 7, 2010

Because of problems accessing our network using Snow Leopard, I've started using the 'Favorites' folder as a 'shortcut' to our networked drives. It works fine and is very useful. A colleague has asked me to set the same facility up on his computer. When I dragged 'Favorites' from his 'Libary' folder to the sidebar, it appeared there with a heart icon. 'Sweet!' we thought. However, we then found that when we dragged one of the folders which he wanted to have in his favorites over to the sidebar, the O.S. proceeded to make a copy of the whole folder contents - instead of it working as a shortcut. What are we doing wrong?

OS X :: Application Folder Copy In User Menu?

Sep 16, 2010

I seem to have lost my Applications folder from my User menu under Places in Finder. It is still present however, in the Macintosh HD menu under Devices. So I thought I would just drag it to my User menu where there was one before, however it started to copy the folder there. Is this the correct way to get it back there, should it in fact be copying the Application folder? Seems like a waste of nearly 11GB to simply have a copy there.

OS X :: Copy ITunes Playlist Content To Folder

Oct 22, 2009

I have an iTunes playlist with 20GB of music inside, which I'd like to copy to a memory stick of mine. With small playlists (100 songs or so), I just select all songs in the playlist (CMD+A) and drag them into a folder, and that's that. But with a playlist with about 20GB of music, this doesn't seem to work. It seems like it's starting to copy all the files, but about a minute later, it just aborts the action without an error message of any kind. Does anybody know how I can accomplish this?

Software :: Copy Folder From One Drive To Another - Attributes Not Same

Dec 31, 2008

I have recently been copying files from one external drive to another. They seem to copy just fine until I run a test on them by checking them with the program Chrono Sync. Chronosync is regularly telling me that certain attributes are not exactly the same and wants to sync them. does anyone know why a file copy from one drive to another would not be exactly the same? I am using Mac OSX 10.5.5.

OS X Technologies :: Copy Folder From Server To Remote?

Mar 7, 2012

Im trying to run an rsync command which copies a backup of a server services folder using a remote computer. The backup folder of services resides on the main system disk.  

AR-ADL-MBP1-John:~ john$ sudo rsync -va -e --delete ssh admin@10.105.141.66:/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups /Volumes/ARINA temp

errors out with building file list ... rsync: link_stat "/Users/john/ssh" failed: No such file or directory (2) rsync: link_stat "/Users/john/admin@mail.arina.biz/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups" failed: No such file or directory (2)   

I've also tried to open the server in finder and run the rsync without ssh. This works for non system disks but get permissions errors on this system disk rsync: readdir("/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups/M-W-F/Data_Stores/mail/259F2CAC-D0EB-4348-B85F-1257F8242E87"): Permission denied (13)
