OS X :: Print List Of Whole File Directory

I'm looking for an easy way to create a list of every file on a hard drive, and create a .pdf of it in OSX. It would be good to be able to omit some folders from this list as well.

Intel Mac :: Print Out The File Directory?
Years ago, I could print out a list of files in a folder from the finder window. Is there now a workaround utility to do that? I don't want to use screen shots, as the directory is too long and would require several screen shots.

OS X :: How Do I Print A File List?
I'd like to print the file names that are on an external backup so I know what is there. I've opened Finder and the relevant directory, but can't figure out how to print the pane (or file list).

I have Tiger 10.4.10 on a G4 powerbook.

OS X :: Finder - Jumps To Bottom Of Directory List?
Since upgrading to Snow Leopard I an issue with finder, when I open up any drive and then click say a folder/directory starting with the letter A, then click on a sub-folder, finder jumps to the very bottom of the top level folder/directory list. This forces me each time to then scroll back to the top where I was working.

It easier to see than describe the fault/feature, so hope this makes sense.

Pages 09 :: Can't Print Directory / Do This?
I am trying to create a Phone Directory for my neighborhood. I have this information in a Numbers document.

I created a Pages document in the format I wanted for the directory using the "mail merge" for the fields from the Numbers document. However, I cannot get it to print more than 1 record per page. Does anyone know how to do this?

Pages 09 :: How To Print A List From Contacts
I'm not sure if this is an Address Book question or a Pages question, but I am posting it here.

I want to print a list of my contacts from the Address Book via Pages so I can format it appropriately. I have looked at mail merge, but that seems to insist on a page break between each record. what's the best way to do what I am trying to achieve ?

OS X :: How To Print A List Of Folder Contents With All Attributes?
I've come to my wit's end now - I've got about 10K plus of photos in my folder which I have nicely organized and grouped with different labels and comments. I would like to now convert the list of files with all attributes into a document. I've tried the copy and paste tricks with Textedit as well as several folder actions offered in Automator -to no avail as all I've got is just a list with file names which is more or less useless to me. It seems that during the process only the files names are copied but not other infos like label, size etc. Is there something I have missed here? I would be extremely grateful if someone could throw some light here.

OS X :: Create File List And Batch File Renaming?
So in windows I can create a file list, save it to a text file, and create a .bat file with rename commands for each file. for example:

Rename 000055-060409232023-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000055.jpg
Rename 000056-060409232020-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000056.jpg
Rename 000057-060409232016-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000057.jpg
Rename 000058-060409232012-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000058.jpg
Rename 000059-060409232008-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000059.jpg
Rename 000060-060409232004-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000060.jpg
Rename 000061-060409232001-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000061.jpg
Rename 000062-060409231957-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000062.jpg
Rename 000063-060409231953-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000063.jpg

how do I create a file list and then create a way to batch rename in os x? I know the commands, but I don't know of a way to do it on more than one file at a time. I have found a few renaming apps but they all appear to be focused on just iterating up instead of renaming specific files to a new name.

Simple the latest web cam picture with date in the name "picture_date.jpg" from the archive folder, to a second server with the new name "picture.jpg", overwriting the old file in tht location.

2- Get Folder Contens (gives me the list of all files)

3- Filter Finder Items (select only .jpg)

5- Get Selected Items

OS X :: HFS File / Directory Recovery
I accidentally deleted all of the files on a friend's portable drive, when using terminal to try to delete a very large folder (the Trash Can was not working it was so large)--since the files/folders were very recently deleted I am looking into data recovery software to get the files back. The problem is that the HFS file system seems to be designed in such a way that once a folder/file is deleted, it is very difficult to recover it's name even if its data can be recovered, so most data recovery programs (such as FileSalvage) will recover only known file types and give them a a number (such as 0004.jpg). Does anyone know of any Mac/HFS recovery software that has found a way around this particular issue and can recover data with the folder structure/file names intact?

OS X :: File / Directory Referencing On Mac
Im trying to set up NetJukebox on XAMMP and I need to paste in the file references to where my music is held on the HDD. Now, on a PC I would just be something D:/Music/ or something, with 'D' referncing the drive where the folder Music is held. The trouble Im having is doing this but with the 'Macintosh HD' drive, because I dont think that /User/*UserNameHere*/Music/ will work by itself. Is there a way I can include the drive name as well in that folder reference?

OS X :: How To Dump A Volume Directory Into A Text File
I have several old internal hdds that I have collected over the past 4 years and I would like to be able to see what is on them without actually attaching them to my Mac Pro.

OS X Technologies :: Does The Exclusion Of A File Or Directory Remove Any Existing
Does the exclusion of a file or directory remove any existing, already backed up versions of that file or directory from TimeMachine? I have a large file I don't want backed up every time I connect to my backup drive.  It's 50GB+. I rarely touch the file, and when I do, I don't use it for anything that needs to be saved, it is a historical only version of my Parallels from an older Microsoft OS.  I occasionally need to open it to just look at something, but never 'do' anything with it. 

I want to exclude it, but don't want any older version of the file to be removed from backup. Does anyone know if exclusions are retroactive into the TimeMachine database?  Given this is 50GB+, trying it to find out is a quite slow process.

OS X Leopard :: Making Simple File Directory Of External Drive?

However, I would like to know the names of all my files without plugging in the Firewire drive - maybe some kind of directory. How can I make a document listing all of my external files, and view the list on my iMac?

OS X :: Defining Script Command To Output MP3 File In Directory
I have installed ffmpeg using MacPorts and am trying to work out a script that will convert audio files in a specified folder to mp3 files, outputting the converted files as mp3 files in another folder. So far the script looks like this:

code:set convertPath to "Macintosh HD:opt:local:bin:ffmpeg"
set convertCommand to quoted form of POSIX path of convertPath & " -i {infile} -f mp3 -ar 44100 -ab 128 -acodec mp3 - "
tell application "Finder"
set inPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new:"
set outPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new2:"
set myFiles to (files of entire contents of inPath whose name ends with ".m4a") as alias list
repeat with i from 1 to count of myFiles
do shell script convertCommand
end repeat
end tell

With this script I am getting the error : "Can't make every file of "class ects" of "Macintosh HD: Users:nick:Desktop:new:" whose name ends with ".m4a" into type alias list." I am not sure how to define the do shell script command so that it outputs an MP3 file in the output directory.

IMac PPC :: Directory Won't Keep File Names
The directory seems to have to rebuild each session. I open a folder and have to wait 8 seconds for the file to build then I can see the contents. After that, the folder opens immediately and will operate without problems UNTIL I shutdown. After restart, the folder stalls again as it builds the directory once more. My machine has multiple drives so I have triple boot and the other drives work fine so it is the system, not the computer itself.

Cannot reopen my Aperture library (Aperture 2) after successfully exporting a few images to desktop as jpegs and then closing Aperture. Tried to reopen Aperture and got the following message:

Library info directory path contains a file where a folder was expected.

The Aperture Library could not be created at "/Volumes/Data/Pictures/Aperture

Library.aplibrary/Aperture.aplib". Check the path and try again.

No idea what has happened here. Anyone know how to fix?

I have a referenced library on my data drive (4 drive Mac Pro) Data drive/d300 Masters folder/another sub folder/then all my images. Did nothing other than to adjust,crop and export images. Images all still there (can open in PS).

OS X :: Can ACLs On A Directory Prevent Guest Account From Access Via A File Share
I have given up on getting home sharing to work properly amongst all my various computers at home on 10.5 and thought I would use an old style brute force method of simply setting up a file share to share my iTunes library. I set up file sharing to use the Guest account and it works fine for all of my other content. I have tried to create shares of the following directories and can only connect as a registered user (Guest user cannot even see these shares):



I have gone into the terminal and looked at the ACLs on the Music directory (e.g ls -alte) and I can't see anything that would block access, but I am not an expert with this type of ACL. The ACL on the Music directory is this:

0: allow search

1: group:everyone deny delete

I have an ACL called 0: group:everyone deny delete on one of my other shares that works fine so this can't be the culprit (more importantly the ACL looks like it is just preventing users from deleting anything).
