OS X :: Can't Make Aliases Inside The Applications Folder

Dec 21, 2010

Sometimes I'd like to create an aliases/shortcuts from an application which resides within a folder and place that alias inside the root of the /Applications/ folder instead. However, for some reason I can't do this on my wife's Mac running Leopard 10.5.8.

So instead of getting a "green arrow" type icon whenever I click the app's icon while holding down ALT and CMD I now get a white circle with a line over it, apparently indicating that this is something I can't do. I believe I checked my drive's permissions (using "Disk utility") but found no errors (or had the errors fixed), so what could be the problem?

By the way, I've also noticed that I'm asked to verify (with the user-login password) if I want to delete (put an application in the trash) something from inside the Applications folder. Is this normal? I'm not used to this from MacOSX Tiger 10.4.

I noticed this after the 10.5.3 upgrade. Inside the applications folder there is an invisible file (no icon) labeled Applications Folder. Get Info reveals it to be a unix executable file. I'm a newbie, and not sure what it means.

OS X Mavericks :: Home Folder Not Visible In Users Folder

Sep 5, 2014

My home folder appears to have gone missing from the Users folder in finder. See screenshot - I can see the test account I created and the shared folder but not my home folder.  

I can still access my home folder via the sidebar but this causes problems with some software not being able to see my home folder in their browsers (Nikon Capture NX2 being an example).

OS X Mavericks :: App Folder Says It Takes Up 3x As Much Room Than Actual Apps Inside

Sep 2, 2014

I am planning on buying a new Mac this weekend and was trying to decide on a hard drive size. When I clicked "Get Info" on the Applications folder it said 31.7GB, but when I actually added up the amount of space of each app in the folder, it only came to 12.6GB. I even included the miscellaneous folders (some of which were a couple GBs in size). If I were to transfer to another computer, would it say my Apps take up a different amount of space?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: No Longer Move Program Icons From Applications Folder To A Sub Folder

Jun 11, 2012

After installing Lion, I can no longer move program icons from my applications folder to a sub folder. When I do, it makes a copy and leave the original in the applications folder. When I then try to delete the icon in the applications folder it tells me it's required by the OS and won't let me delete. I'm forced to keep certan applications such as Time Machine and Stickies in the application folder.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create A Smart Folder That Only Has Applications & Utilities In A Sub-folder

Mar 30, 2012

I would like to create a Smart folder that only has applications & utilities in a sub-folder. 

This will be similar to the default applications folder that shows in the dock, but without all the extra files & folders - just a list of applications. 

I can do this by esily by just having a smart folder of applications showing only type=application.

However, I would still like to have utilities in a sub-folder. 

If thats not possible, then it would be OK to have 2 seperate smart folders, 1 for apps excluding utilities & 1 for utilities only. 

Is there some way in the smart folder options i can exclude a sub directory?

MacBook Pro :: Users From Old Mac Folder After Migration

Oct 23, 2009

I recently (a few months ago actually!) got a new unibody 15" macbook pro which I love - when I set it up I migrated from my time-machine backup and it seemed to go pretty seamless - I have since upgraded to snow leopard and all is good with the world. Now my new unibody machine has a 320Gb drive where my old machine was quite small so I was shocked to see that i have already used 220Gb - but looking at the macHD at the root I can the usual, 'library', 'applications', 'system' and 'users' - but also see lots of unusual folders:

"users (from old mac)" - which is 55Gb and last modified before I bought my new unibody - can this be safely deleted now? also there are a few folders which have a little arrow pointing into the folder on the bottom left hand corner - what are they? The specific folders are:

'tmp (from old mac)'
'etc (from old mac)'
'user guides and information'

these are all just 4k on disc so am I assuming they are just shortcuts? Any other tips for free-ing up space in a post-migration mac?

OS X :: Migrating To New IMac With Users Folder On Different Partition

Nov 26, 2010

I have a question about an impending migration that I'm going to have to do. I'm looking at getting a new iMac, and I want to transfer my data over to it. The problem is that I originally partitioned my current iMac's internal hard disk and moved my Users folder to the secondary partition. So currently:
Partition 1: Snow Leopard (and assorted system files), 54.9 GB Max Capacity
Partition 2: Ozmosis (Users folder and all my data--photos, music, etc.) 445.41 GB Max Capacity

If I want to use the Migration Assistant on my new iMac, do I have to get rid of my secondary partition and move my Users folder back to the sole Snow Leopard partition? Obviously you can see my problem, being that my Snow Leopard partition only has 55 GB of storage, and I have well over that in my Users folder. What about Time Machine? Will Time Machine know to back-up my Users folder even though it's on a completely different partition? If it's smart enough to back both partitions up (which I don't think it'll do), will it restore it on my new iMac with only one partition?

OS X Technologies :: Folder Action Does Not Run On SECOND File Only

Mar 7, 2012

Does any one know of a bug or a log for folder scripts that do not run? I am trying to get a basic folder script (to replace %20 in the file name) of the Downloads folder.

When downloading multiple files (two or more) it runs only on the first file, successfully without error, and then never runs on the second file. If I move both of the files out of the Downloads folder and move it back it, the one file that does not get the folder action now does and everything is peachy.So it is not that the folder action is not scripted properly. It is just that the folder does not catch the second file download - guess maybe too fast? Has any one seen this or have this bug?

OS X Technologies :: Creating A Folder On An SMB Share Using A Mac

May 10, 2012

Our environment has multiple Windows file servers, both 2003 and 2008. If one of these SMB shares is accessed from a Mac and the user creates a folder, will the ACLs on the share that are set to cascade actually cascade to this newly created folder? We've had issues in the past where ACLs that are supposedly set to cascade on a shared folder are not present on sub-folders created from Macs.Next question: if the share resides on a netapp device, do the same rules apply? The Macs are still connecting to these shared folders using the SMB protocol.All Macs are bound to our 2008 AD domain and use network accounts with local homefolders. The issue seems to happen when one or both of the following things happen:

1. A Mac user copies/creates a folder on a Netapp share and for some reason it doesn't inherit rights correctly

2. We move the folder from one share on an actual Windows server to the Netapp and it doesn't take permissions correctly.

OS X :: Remove Hidden Files From Folder For Windows Users

Apr 2, 2009

I have to supply a generated set of files � a couple of dozen logos as .eps files � in a folder containing some other nested folders to a small enterprise that uses PCs for their day to day work.

The people I'm dealing with are not very IT-savvy and if I could, I'd provide a set of these folders and files without the corresponding invisible files that usually have a dot at the beginning of their file-names.

I'll probably zip the whole lot up and email, rapidshare or yousendit it over to them so they can unpack it and get to business without me having to explain what all those files with the dots are, and how to get rid of them.

Software :: Moving Users Folder To Another Drive Or Partition

Jul 1, 2002

I know I saw the question post a while back about moving the Users folder to another partition or drive. I always wanted to do that as well and then I found out how to do it easily....

this is from MacWorld Magazine: Quote: Open Terminal and type the following commands:

sudo ditto -rsrc "/Users/username" "/Volumes/volumename/Users/username"

sudo niutil -createprop / "/Users/username" home "/Volumes/volumename/Users/username"

Sudo asks for your password to provide temporary root access, which is necessary for this exercise; volumename is the name of the new volume; and username is the name of your user folder. If that last line returns errors in Terminal or doesn't work, go to your NetInfo Manager in the Utilities folder. Click the lock to allow changes, look in the /users/username folder and highlight your username. Down below in the properties list there is a property that is called home, highlight that one and change the value from /Users/username to /Volumes/volumename/Users/username Quote:.................

OS X Mavericks :: Network Users - Can't Login Without Home Folder

Jun 17, 2014

We upgraded our lab from 10.6.8 to 10.9.3. Preserving our settings and bootcamp by simply upgrading. After getting nearly all machines sorted out with active directory we are still having a problem with 2-3 machines with network user accounts being able to login. If no local home folder has been created prior to upgrading to 10.9.3 then the user cannot login, the login prompt dissapears then re-appears.

Here is a run down of the set-up. 

Our settings force network users to have a local home folder on the local mac that they are logging into. 

Mac OS X server is 10.6.8. 

Active directory server is 2012 R2. 

Network users without a pre-created home folder on the local mac prior to upgrade cannot login. The login prompt dissapears, then re-appears. No login. 

Computers are managed with workgroup manager, as well as apple remote desktop. But no settings are applied, and no login scripts are being run.  

Also I have noticed something concerning Mac OS X 10.8.5 and up. And that is in the active directory settings, if you bind to a domain (using active directory and not LDAP), lets say for example: 


And you go to add your local active directory district to the Authentication/Contacts search policy eg: Active Directory/mydistrict.maindistrict.net

it will only show: Active Directory/mydistrict/alldomains.maindistrict.net. 

It shows a list of all domains for the forest. But it also adds the district that you bound to as the search directory?

Let me use a precise example using actual names. 

Bind to local district: pineville.ketsds.net 

Now in search policy on 10.8.5 up to 10.9.3 it displays possible search domains like this: 

Active Directory/PINEVILLE/pineville.ketsds.net <- The domain we want.

Active Directory/PINEVILLE/all-other-domains-in-forest.ketsds.net <--Which is fine. 

Which is all fine, but when we select  the local domain for authentication, and contacts search it adds it, but in the overview it says that it is not in our search policy even though it is. 

On Mac OS X versions below this (10.6.8 and down, cannot verify for 10.7 as we do not have systems with it) it displays the search domains as: 

Active Directory/pineville.ketsds.net

as compared to  this on 10.8.5 and above: 

Active Directory/PINEVILLE/pineville.ketsds.net

 As well as all the other domains, and when you add the local to the search policy it does not give the error that it is not in your search policy. Is there anyway to make this happen on 10.8.5 and above? We have tried everything. Network accounts will login even though it says this, it is just annoying.  

Last question is on one computer that we upgraded, we had a problem with the network accounts. Tried deleting the .plist for network preferences, and the Directory services folder as well as the Open directory folder and now it create the open directory folder as locked and any changes made with the directory utility in the search policy is immediatley reverted once we hit apply. 

Summary of questions:

1.) Network users cannot login without local folder created prior to upgrade. 

2.) Mac OS X 10.8.5 and above does not correctly add Authentication/Contact search policy domains as it does in 10.6.8 and below. 

3.) Active Directory/Open Directory Authentication/Contact search policy settings keey reverting after applying. (Happened prior to deleting .plist files and AD/OD folders in /Library/Preferences)

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@ 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)

OS X Technologies :: Combine PDF Pages Folder Action?

Mar 30, 2012

I am running OS 10.6.8, using Automator to create a Folder Action. The input is a single folder containing 2 or more PDF files. I drop this folder onto the folder with the action attached. All of the PDFs are combined and the resulting PDF is copied to a new location. 

It works very well with one problem. The name of the combined PDF is an automatically generated system name. I would like this PDF file name to change to the name of the original folder that contained the original PDFs. 

To summarize: "Folder A" has the action attached. "Folder B" contains 2 or more PDFs. I drop Folder B onto Folder A. Automator creates a new combined PDF. I would like this to be named "Folder B.pdf"
