OS X :: Syncing Multiple Folders Over 2 Macs Wirelessly?

Jul 9, 2009

im kinda anal about backing **** up. that said...

im getting a MBP for school blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda

i need a program that will allow me to automatically sync files between both my macs. (preferably wirelessly)

id like the notes i take in class on the mbp to sync with the imac when i get home. Id like my picture folders, design work folders, and documents folders to be in sync on both computers whenever im home.

if i add new pictures on the mbp, take new notes, or work on a .psd file.

I want them available on the imac without me having to manually bring them over and vice versa.

i just need a way for the folders to sync whenever im home.

that way when i do a back up on my imac, it also has a back up of the folders on the mbp.

OS X :: Sync Programs On Multiple Macs?

Feb 12, 2010

I've had a MacBook Pro for some time, and am now wanting to sync all my programs (preferably without mobileme).

Many years ago, I was able to network multiple mac computers and have each of those macs draw their information from a common file on the server. For example, the mail program on each computer would reference it's mail file in the library which was an alias that pointed to the actual data file that was stored on the server. This was an easy way of linking the email, so when mail was altered on one computer, the changes were made (in essence) to all computers.

I would like to do that with my iMac and MacBook, but also the music library, iCal, Address Book etc.

Is there a way to set my Time Capsule up as a server to handle something like this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Sync Keychain On Multiple Macs?

May 21, 2012

There are a lot of forums on this subject, but are specifically about Apple removing Keychain sync with iCloud. I cannot find any solution as to how to do it now they removed this option.  

I have installed Keychain2Go but it just synced right away to "somewhere". I guess it's their servers. So I am concerned about that as I don't know this company.  

So is Keychain2Go the only solution to sync Keychains now? I cannot find any other solution.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Files Sometimes Missing From Folders After Copying Between Macs?

Feb 15, 2012

We have a 2009 intel iMac here, running Leopard (10.5.8). We receive files from customers via browser-based FTP or email on this mac, and the boss puts these files in appropriately-named folders, and copies those folders into the appropriate place on our file server – a G5 (1.8Gz single processor 2.5Gb RAM) also running Leopard 10.5.8. All macs here are connected via ethernet using TCP/IP (of course) 

However, every now and then, there are files missing from these folders. For example one folder (that had 100 images or so) had 4 files missing after copying to the file server, even though the folder was dragged across wholesale, not the contents. All filename conventions are standardised before being sent to us, and do not use any illegal characters that may cause a problem between differing OSs or processor platforms. 

This issue may not be limited to these two macs, but there may not enough network traffic between other macs to show this issue on other machines – it only seems to occur when copying across large batches of files, and does not happen all the time. There is no one thing that sticks out that links the missing files – i.e. filenames/filetype, etc. It seems completely random. 

I thought that TCP/IP was supposed to check data packets to ensure that all data was sent properly, but no errors are received on either side. 

Is there some sort of maintenance (other than repairing permissions, which is done on a weekly basis on the fileserver) that I can run

OS X Technologies :: Automator: Extract Multiple Zip Files?

Mar 11, 2012

I'm trying to create an Automator service for the Finder in Lion. It gives me an "error in shell script". I just created a similar script that uses "imguru" to upload images to [URL] which works great, so i'm thinking that it's must be the line with "unzip" that creates a problem.

OS X :: Extract Files From Multiple Folders?

Jun 19, 2010

I would like to transfer my iTunes library to my phone to use as a secondary/backup iPod. The problem is that I have a lot of music, and iTunes organizes the music by putting music in separate folders via artist, and then more separate folders by album. This means there is no easy way to transfer all of my music over. I'd have to manually click on every folder, and copy songs one by one, which would take a super long time.

Is there a way to like select my iTunes Music folder and be able to get all of my music?

OS X :: 1 Backup For Multiple Macs

Jul 8, 2010

I work for a media company, we hire out our stock of macs to clients and they often come back full of unwanted files and applications, we want to create a single backup on our network that we can automatically sync our macs to when they come back from a job, so it gets rid of all the extra files and resets back to just being the software we want. Then when software updates come out we can just update the 1 backup and it will sync to all the macs. Is this possible?

OS X :: Can't Get It To Find Shared Folders On Macs

Jul 16, 2009

I have a new PC running Windows 7 RC, but I can't get it to find the shared folders on my Macs, nor can my Macs see the shared folders on the PC. Any ideas how to get at least one way working (preferably so that the Macs can see the PC).I'm running 10.5.7, and if I "Connect to Server" and dial in smb:// and the PCs IP address, I get a login window, but it won't let me log in. I have no password on the PC.

Also, I followed the advice in another post here, http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=635271), but it didn't make any difference.

OS X :: Sync Two Macs Without MobileMe

Jan 6, 2010

I have an iMac at home and a MacBook Pro for school and I'd like to sync them together. More specifically, I'm looking into syncing my iCal database as well as my Address Book database. I do not wish to pay for MobileMe, as I find it too expensive and don't have so much money to waste at this moment of the year, but I tried it and it worked like a charm. It's just overpriced though, especially for a particular (maybe for an enterprise they will use every buck out of this service, but not me). I was wondering if there was a nice application for that... or an Automator script, of if I should try and figure out how to code my own Automator script?

Applications :: Does Software Work On Multiple Macs?

Jan 6, 2011

I'm sure this has been asked but I've looked through many of the pages on the news stories, and I've also looked on the OSX forums from today and didn't find anything, so . . .

I have three macs. An iMac for home, a personal MBP I use at work, and a mac mini connected to the TV. If I download an app from the Mac App store, will that work on all three of my computers? It appears to be setup similarly to the iTunes store, that each purchase is connected to your itunes account. If this is that case, then wouldn't one purchase work on all machines?

When I buy a movie from itunes I can play it on any computer (up to 5), along with any ipod, iphone, ipad.
