OS X :: Format Mac OS Extended (journaled)?

Jan 19, 2011

My computer was acting slow so I ran Tech Tool. It came up with various Volume errors but they were all fixed. I noticed that this computer was formatted as Mac OS Extended but NOT Journaled like the other two in our office. I was unable to add Journaling with either Disk Utility or Tech Tool. Both cases said that "Journaling failed" or "unable to add journaling". I believe I used to have journaling because I often use Onyx for repairing disk permissions and various other processes and this was the first time that I encountered the error "Not possible to verify the start-up volume because it is not journaled". I ran the Apple Hardware Check and the Hard drive is fine. So, after trying the previous mentioned utilities again to try and "journal", I decided to perform an Archive & Install. I am in the process of updating the OSX software, but I noticed the HD still says Format: Mac OS Extended...Hmmmm. Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

OS X :: Can't Format To Mac OS Extended (Journaled)?

Jun 26, 2007

I've got an external HD. The first part is formatted to NTFS. The second part was formatted to FAT32. I plugged it in via Firewire and went to erase it to a journaled filesystem. It did something and left the drive unmounted. I could only format it to FAT32. Any ideas why I can't format it to journaled? I want to backup my user dir.

Edit: Tried another drive. 2 fat32 partitions. I tried to format the first and it didn't work. Formats to FAT32 well enough.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Demands OSX Journaled Extended?

Oct 12, 2008

Awhile back I made a Vista partition, shortly after I deleted the partition. I now want to make a new partition, but when I go through bootcamp to allocate space, it gives me an error saying i need to have a "Single Mac OSX Journal Extended drive.

The problem is, my drive shows up as Journal Extended. I would really like to not have to reformat my drive, as I do not have the CD's for all of my programs. Is there any way around this? I do have an external HD if necessary.

Hardware :: Formatting External FW Drives - Using Extended Or Journaled?

Jul 15, 2008

I've been having problems with 3 Maxtor 500GB 400/800/USB FW drives. They will randomly unmount themselves -- forcing me to turn them off, wait a minute, then turn them back on. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to when they unmount themselves. All three drives had been formatted using Mac OS Extended (Journaled), and I'm on the most recent version of Leopard.

Thinking I had 3 lemons, I called Seagate (who purchased Maxtor) for tech assistance. The tech guy told me that external drives should not be formatted using Journaled, only Mac OS Extended.

OS X :: Changing External Hard Drive From Journaled To Extended?

Feb 21, 2010

I just recently realized that my Seagate external HD is under Mac OS extended (journaled) and not Mac OS extended. I only want to use this device for storage/backup and don't want to run anything off of it. Is there any non-destructive way to change it to just extended? If not, what are some of my alternatives?

OS X :: Creating A Partition In Mac OS Extended?

Oct 5, 2009

So, I am in the process of attempting to partition my disc so that I can boot windows XP.

Know that I am in no way even a capable mac user, so I might be a bit slow... sorry.

During the partitioning process, using boot camp, I get a message saying that I need to reformat my disc so that it is a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) disc. So, I go to my Disc Utility, and it says it already is a Mac OS extended bla bla bal. So, my question is

Why will it not let me partition, and do I really need to reformat my everthing eventhough it already is in the format it wants to be in?

Mac Pro :: Apple Care Can't Be Extended?

May 1, 2010

I just called Apple about an iPod issue. When he told me that my iPod's Apple Care expired, I gave him my Mac Pro SN, and he helped with the iPod issue as a courtesy. So while on the topic, I thought to request an extension of coverage for my Mac Pro system (about $5k worth of hardware).

He told me that Apple Care cannot be extended. "So you just have to buy new stuff, huh?" I asked. He quietly replied, "Yes."

I cannot imagine having to buy $5k plus new hardware just to keep my equipment covered. Wow. Did I misunderstand him? Does anyone need some editing work done.

Hardware :: How To Get Dock On Extended Desktop

Jan 18, 2009

I just hooked up a Dell monitor to my MacBook. I will be using it in clamshell mode 98% of the time. I have the MB on the right side of the monitor. I want to drag applications back and forth between screens. Currently, I have to drag off the left side of the external. How do I drag off the right side of the external and onto the left of the MB? I don't want the MB on the left of the external on my desk. Make sense? When using both screens, how do I get the dock on my external rather than on the MB?

OS X :: Can't Format External Drive To Mac OS Extended?

Jul 8, 2009

I have the external drive formated as FAT of 1TB.

I have erasing all data whole day (about 20 hours) and formating as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) but at the end it reports an error.

Now, when I connect hard drive to my MBP it says "disk is not readable on this computer" - Initialize...

When i try to format as Mac OS Extended (J) it says: "Disk erase failed with error: File system formated fail"

I tried to format it on PC (Vista and XP) but they even can't see hard disk.

What should I do to get journaled formated external hard drive?

OS X :: Photoshop Files Compatable With PS Extended?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a nice opportunity to purchase low priced student Adobe Suites right now as i am enrolled in Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator CS4 classes.

Here is my concern: I would like to purchase the Masters Collection or the Design Premium. Both of these suites have Photoshop Extended. They do not have just plain old Photoshop.

Will I be confused or unable to use PS Extended if I am learning standard PS in my class?

Will the DVD of lessons for my class (including images that are to be manipulated in standard Photoshop) work with PS Extended?

OS X :: Time Machine Preparing For An Extended Period?

Jan 28, 2009

I use Firewire 800, and my external has 80GB free on it. Both it and my iMac's drives are 320GB. What's with the extended period of preparation, going on 15 minutes now, maybe longer. Backup still didn't begin, this never used to happen me before. I only backed up 2 days ago?

Also, why when I click the Time Machine menubar item to open Time Machine prefs does the DVD (iLife '09) in my optical drive make a noise as if it's being accessed? It spins up a little too. Seems very odd, and it's not a coincidence, it happens exactly when I try to open Time Machine prefs from its menubar item. I could do it 5 times in succession and the optical drive would make the same accessing noise each time, on cue

OS X :: MPlayer Extended (Rev 13) Not Working Properly On Intel?

Jan 3, 2011

I just got a new Intel Core i7 Mac and installed MPlayer OSX Extended (Rev 13) on my computer. After installing it, it needed to "update it's font cache" and after doing this, it asked "whether or not to check for updates automatically". However, after I made my choice, the application unexpectedly quit. I tried doing this again several time to no avail. After resetting my computer again multiple times, and reinstalling the application, I finally got the MPlayer Rev 13 to open and play videos. Normally, when I open an application on the dock, the icon "jumps" and then the application opens. However, whenever I open the MPlayer app, it "jumps" and pauses and finishes the jump. Furthermore, whenever I try to go fullscreen (by clicking the screen twice), nothing happens. I have read online that there have been some cases where the borders blacken, but the video stays the same size, but in my case, nothing happens at all.

MacBook Air :: Extended Apple Care Plan?

Jan 9, 2011

First I would like to say hello to everyone and soon I will (finally) enter the Mac world. I've been a 50-50 type of guy (Apple/Microsoft) and I had the majority of the multimedia Apple products without actual Macs though. I was tempted to buy a MacBook before but I always wanted something sleek, sexy yet with a good sauce of performance since I am not a heavy usage type of guy and for gaming I will be getting a 360 Slim later on. Finally that day has come and I will be buying the ultimate 11". Question is, is it worth the extended Apple Care plan? I searched for answers on the official Apple site, googled up for a couple of days but I didn't find exactly what I wanted. Does it cover (for example) accidental damage? Or what are the real advantages of having an extended Apple Care plan? Since it will be my first Mac I will want to take extra care with it.

OS X :: Cannot Format External Drive As Mac Extended - Pointers?

Apr 16, 2009

I have a Western Digital Elements 1TB External USB drive and am unable to format 1 partition as Mac OS Extended (or Journaled for that matter) in Disk Utility. I can format the drive as FAT32 with no issue, and I can format the drive as FAT32 with 1 NTFS partition with no issue. But any time I try to format the partition as Mac OS Extended or Mac OS Extended Journaled it reports an underlying error and stops. I can't figure it out. I don't know what the problem is or what to look for. Does anyone have any pointers?

MacBook Pro :: Kudos - Extended Apple Care

Jan 9, 2010

My apple care ran out over a month ago and they still covered a video card problem in my Mbp. Anyone else get repairs done after coverage expired? I was having an aweful time trying to figure out why I couldn't get a good calibration when running external monitors. The card seemed to be working, but I guess whenbutvwas put under stress it failed. My mbp is at apple getting a new logic board, can't imagine what that costs. Plus my 30" cinema is getting a new hinge that would not tighten properly. Apple care is definitely worth it.

Mac Pro :: Hardware Extended Test Results Error

Jan 23, 2010

Ran the extended test a couple times and got an error result: 4MEM/9/40000006:B:OC:OR:2. Is this telling what my problem part is? Location? I decided to run the test because I've been having startup issues, no startup chime, sometimes no monitor startups, etc. Hence, I keep machine running 24/7, until software updates. From search, it definitely sounds like a stick of memory, but which one. Do I have to pull a pair and run the test each time to find out the culprit? I think I bought from OWC a couple times, and one other time from a another vendro (kingston ram).

OS X :: Extended Metadata And Exif Info Not Displaying?

Apr 28, 2010

I have snow leopard (w/ all the most recent updates installed). And for some reason when I select "Get Info" from the Finder, the information pane opens but the section labeled "More info" contains only the most basic info about the relevant file. For example- PNG & JPEG files don't even display the image size (WxH).

I looked at a friends computer, running the same version of Snow Leopard, and when I go to Get Info it displays lots of relevant metadata, even for PSD, DNG and other file types. Can someone please tell me how to turn on the extended metadata support for Get Info (inspector)?

MacBook Pro :: SSD Degradation Over An Extended Period Of Time?

May 31, 2010

Hey everyone, so I keep seeing posts about how much SSDs degrade over the first week/two after using an SSD (one that comes WITH the MBP). However, how much do they degrade after...say....6 months-1 year (or even longer)? I know they are still new hardware, but I'm sure some people have an idea. Is it really THAT significant of a speed and performance decrease?
