Does anyone know where the "Welcome Movie" the one after the finished tiger install is done. Its the movie with 7 or 8 different country welcomes? I'm trying to find it in the OS but the folder is hidden. I wanna see it again before I upgrade to bigger internal HDD.
Sometimes, it's not just folders, it's files too. Sometimes in non-mac sources, like my SMART TV, I see files named .filename.mp4 along with filename.mp4. And these fraudulent files are really bothering. And the worst part, I can't see them in Finder. remove the .file.mp4.
I used the term 'filename.mp4' to represent an MP4 video file. But the files that have a . before them need to be deleted.
Might seem like a stupid question, but I have an SD card with hidden files filling it up to capacity. I want to delete these but I can't. I can see them, but when I hit delete it makes that noise that says you cant do this, and I cannot drag to the bin either.
My MacBook Air shows that I am using about 44gb. However, when I calculate each folder, they total only 30gb. I am assuming that the difference is made up of hidden/deleted files. How do I find and delete unnecessary hidden files.
i downloaded lamesecure and put a password on a folder. for whatever reasons i took the password off and now when i open the folder my files aren't there. Only a contents folder is now showing, But the folder still says the original size of 2.7g.
Namely: Library and its contents. If Windows can do it, I'm confident Leopard 10.5.6 can too. None of the myriad permutations of the below Terminal command work.
Code: # defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool TRUE # KillAll Finder When I "search this Mac" in the Finder or querry Spotlight, I want nothing but nothing excluded from results. I am not a computer retard in danger of ruining my OS through hasty file relocation or deletion. I want my search returns to include even the most sensitive system files which, if accidentally deleted, would cause my Mac Pro to reach out through my monitor and stab me in the face.
Folder example: There are several folders called "Mozilla" on my system, and yours if you use Firefox. Good luck finding a folder called "Mozilla" using the Finder or Spotlight. You'll have to know where it is and manually navigate there.
File example: I have a file called userChrome.css buried in users/me/Library/AS/Mozilla/ext/yadaYoda, But when I search for "userChrome.css" - Mac OS peers out at me through it's glowing red eye and says, very calmly, "What are you doing Dave? I can't let you do that Dave."
Can anyone tell me how to really & truly include ALL files and folders in searches? I'll reiterate that I've tried a dozen terminal commands I found online.
I did a search for a downloaded file. Result came back Home>Library>Filename. Cool. Problem is this: When I go to Home, there is no file named Library, nor is there a mail downloads file. Is the file hidden and, if so, how do I show it?
But when I went to find the files I could not find them, even using Finder and Spotlight. I eventually found them using 'EasyFind' but I am still perplexed as to why I cannot see them. I can see other files in my downloads file and on my desktop!
I clicked on my HD and I have 124.5 Used and 61.51 Free, which adds up to 186.01. I then clicked on Macintosh HD and selected all the files and hit "Get Info." It all adds up to 117.5 GB. I'm missing about 7 GB and I don't know where it is. Are there some hidden files or something?
I have just acquired an external enclosure for my 160GB 2.5 HDD, and I have it formatted as NTFS on a MBR partition table. I use NTFS-3G on OSX, and it's, of course, natively supported by windows. Well, I am having problems with hidden files between them. In OSX, the .DS_Store files, .Trashes and ._*name* files are hidden, but I can see windows' hidden files (RECYCLER, RECYCLE BIN, and System Volume Information). In Windows, I can see .DS_Store, .Trashes and ._*name* files from OSX, but not Windows' hidden files. I am looking for a way to solve this, or not have the files created on the disks.
I'm not a mac guru by no means but I've been behind this one for 3 years now. Poking around I see that my HD has only 13G's left. I start adding up all my folders... Library, System, Apps, ect and only come up with just over 100G. Where are there 100g of files hidden? Am I missing something somewhere?
Cannot find some files (my templates folder in Microsoft Word, I know the location of the folder but it will not show in Finder), tried holding down option key when selecting folders to show hidden folders but it did not work.
I've just acquired a late-2005 G4 iBook with Leopard 10.5.8 installed. All seems to be well except for an oddity with the listing in the top, home directory. I would normally expect to just see folders for Applications, Library, System and Users but, for some reason, folders normally hidden such as bin, cores, etc (alias), private, sbin, tmp (alias), usr, var (alias) and Volumes are also shown. "dot" names remain invisible unless intentionally made visible.
Info: iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iBook G4 12" (mid-2005)
To set any of these, go to terminal and enter in the code for whichever preference you want to set. Remember, to reset the setting to its default value, just change the "1" at the end to a "0" (or vice versa). Enable "X-Raying" Folders with QuickLook This one is pretty cool. It lets you show the contents of folders when QuickLooking them.
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.
