OS X Technologies :: Add Account Privileges To A Newly Created File?

Jun 11, 2012

I have multipe accounts on my Mac.  Two of them need to share certain files, but not with everyone else so I can't use the Shared folder.  When I create a new text file with AppleScript it has default ownership to the account that created it, but I need to give read & write privilages to it to the other account as well.  I can do this manually, but there are lots of files sometimes.  One trick I've found is to reset privilages from the next higher folder.  This saves time, but sometimes I forget.  Also when I do this it causes Time Machine to think all the files in that folder have been updated.  If the folder is large it may cause Time Machine to purge a old backup version.  What I'd like to do is find some AppleScript code I can use to add user "A" with read & write access to the permissions of a new file at the time my AppleScript creates that file.

OS X :: No Stack Options On Newly Created Alias

Sep 20, 2009

I created an alias folder for my Applications. I put the alias on my Dock but when I click on the alias it will open Finder window. I would like it to show my applications in Stack mode. I have copied another folder and put that on Dock and it appears fine with Stack options. I have no idea why my alias of Applications opens Finder.

OS X :: Newly Created Folders Showing Old Dates?

Jul 2, 2010

Whenever I transfer data from my MBP HDD to an External HDD, the folder it creates to copy that data to has a created date of, wait for it.....14th February 1946 at 8:34am. And how to change it so that the dates are correct (i.e. today!) When the folder finishing copying all the dates are fine. It's just that bit in-between whilst it's copying.

OS X :: Moved Installed Programs In Newly Created Folders?

Jan 17, 2010

Newbie from windows to Mac SL. I download two programs for my Cannon scanner and found them installed in Applications. I created a new folder called Cannon and moved both programs into it. In the folder, there is now a file called "Open in Finder" as well which I did not add.

Question.
1. Is it ok to move files into a new folder this way?
2. Is it normal to have "Open in Finder" also inserted in the folder?

Reason I am asking is, when I initially run the scanner program I get this multiple colour ball momentarily. It is almost as if the OS is looking for the location of the scanner program - similar to an hour glass in windows. Therefore, should I delete the folder I created and reinstall the scanner programs? If so, should I delete the programs first, then the folder, or go ahead and delete the folder with the programs in it?

Mac Pro :: Newly Created Photoshop Images Missing In Snow Leopard

Apr 15, 2012

Ever since installing Snow Leopard, whenever I create a new image in Photoshop and save it to a file, and then I go into that file to look for it, it is missing. The only way I can find the file is if I enter the name of the image in the finder window and do a search - then it says that the image is in the image folder - where I put it - but when I go there, it isn't there. So the only way to find and then open that newly created image, is to remember what I called it, and then enter it's name in the finder serach window. The other problem that I notice with Snow Leopard is that the newly created icon images in finder are all blurry. The blurriness seems to be random. Some are, some are not.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Automator - Moving Files To A Newly Created Folder

May 18, 2012

I am trying to set up a folder action to do the following... When a file is added to the "images" folder a new dated subfolder would automatically be created, and the file would be moved to this new dated subfolder. 

Here's what I have so far (which I'm sure is way off base) 

1) Folder action receives files and folders added to "Images"

2) Filter finder items - Find files where ALL of the following is true: Kind is ANY

3) New Folder - Name is "_" Where: "Images"

4) Add Date or Time to Finder Item Names: Add Date to folder name

5) Move Finder Items: This is the step that I'm stuck on. I don't know how indicate the newly created folder in step 3 

Another question I have is how to make automator check to see if there's already a subfolder with the current date and put the file in that subfolder instead of creating a new subfolder with a duplicate name.

MacBook :: Cannot Transfer File To USB - Insufficient Privileges

Jul 6, 2009

I am trying to transfer a 2.35 GB file (it is windows 7 .iso) to a MicroSD card (using the USB adapter that comes with the micro sd) and when I try to transfer it, it stops and eject the drive and then it tells me "ERROR you disconnected the drive without ejecting it, it can get damage doing that" (something like that) and it says it cant finish transferring the file cause I don't have enough privileges or Insufficient Privileges. The thing is, that the file can be put on the micro sd cause a few hours ago it was in there, i put it on the mac, till I use the micro sd for something else, then now when i want to put it back it does that...

Software :: File Sharing - No Appropriate Access Privileges?

May 22, 2009

I'm having trouble accessing files and moving folders on a shared drive. When I try to open or move a file, it says "The document "X" could not be opened. You do not have appropriate access privileges. To view or change access privileges, select the item in Finder and choose File > Get Info." and when I try to move a folder, it says "This folder cannot be moved as you do not have access to some or all of the items." The IT (who is not trained to deal with macs) says I have full permissions for our shared drive and that the problem is with my computer. So I followed the instructions in the warning box.

However, in the Get Info for the file, it says under Sharing & Permissions "You can read and write". In my System Preferences, both my user accounts have the administrator access box checked. In the Help section, it gives instructions along the lines of "in the Sharing & Permissions section, click the lock next to your name to change permissions" and also "in the action (gear) section, select the option for permissions that you want". Trouble is, there's no name and no lock in my Sharing & Permissions box. There's also no 'action (gear)' option anywhere. When I click on the triangle next to Sharing & Permissions, it literally just says 'You can read and write'. There's no other option or information.

Software :: Created New Email Account - Cannot Receive Messages

Sep 4, 2009

I created a new account on my iMac so that she can use my iMac. I deactivated her email account in Mail in my account and activated it in Mail in her account. (Using 10.5.7 and Mail 3.6). She can send mail but not receive mail. If she sends me an email from her account, I can get it when I log in to Mail in my account. However, when I send an email to her, it is sent - but nothing shows up when Check Mail is clicked on her Mail. (If I reactivate her account in my Mail and click Check Mail, I can receive the messages that should have been sent to her account - but I don't want this to happen!).

Has anyone else noticed this friendly looking executable file in their iTunes library?

It appears to be created and recreated by iTunes, but it shares it's name with a nasty piece of spyware so I'm really not liking it being there.

Anyone seen this guy or got any insight as to why iTunes would be creating it?

OS X :: Unable To Retrieve Lost File / Backup Created Using Time Machine

Mar 25, 2010

I have a file I alter once about a week, each time I alter it I save it as a new one, with a date included in the name.So I have a series of files something like

xxxxx march 13.numbers
xxxxx march 07.numbers
xxxxx march 01.numbers
etc.

This morning when I updated and saved the march13 file I accidentally saved it as xxxxxx march 13, not xxxxxx march 20 which it should have been. No problem, go into time machine and retrieve the march 13 file I thought.Its not there. Its not there from just before the save to any time it should be there !

Luckily I was able to retrieve it as I also have a once a week online backup so I went into the last one of those and retrieved "xxxxxx march13" which proves it did exist, it has a creation date of march 17 but if I look at TM for march 18 its not there - why isn't it in my time machine backup?

All the other files in that folder are as expected so the only thing that makes any sense to me is that TM hasn't been backing up over the past week or so but TM error logger shows no errors.
