OS X :: Retrieve An Unsaved TextEdit Document Without Time Machine?

May 1, 2009

Stupid mistake, simple question. Was taking down some notes in TextEdit, closed file by mistake without saving. Anything I can do?

I should point out the file does exist, it just obviously reverted back to the state it was in before I did the particular hour or so of work in it.

EDIT: Should also point out I'm not using Time Machine.

OS X :: How To Retrieve Data Accidentally Overwritten By A Time Machine Backup

Apr 14, 2009

I connected my windows removable disk to my colleague's mac to transfer some data. Accidentally her system started a time machine backup on my removable disk. Although we stopped it during middle of the process, now my disk is no longer recognizable in windows and all I can see under a mac system is her backup file.

The process took a very short time. I wonder if it has deleted everything. Is there any chance I can get the overwritten data back? They are very important to me.

Besides, is it a common problem of time machine backup? It is too dangerous for the removable disks.

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

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.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Not Letting Retrieve An IPhoto File Library

Feb 3, 2012

I am trying to retrieve an iPhoto file from a week ago. 

One week ago I attempted to upgrade to Lion, then realized that was not what I wanted to do and rebooted from my clone to restore to Snow Leopard. 

When I opened iPhoto however, I realized that the iPhoto library was way further back than I had remembered. 

I used my Time Machine backup to get my old iPhoto library back (not to try to merge, just to retreive the file) and I get the error message: "This operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access "iPhoto Library." 

I already repaired permissions on the volume.  What gives?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Close A TextEdit Document Without Saving?

May 24, 2012

Just switched to Lion, and was alarmed to notice existing (previously saved) TextEdit files closing without an option to save or not save changes. How can I open a TextEdit file, edit it, and then close it without saving the changes? (I often like to print a document without the photo that may be in it, so I delete the photo, print, and then close without saving, because I didn't want the photo permanently removed from the document.)

MacBook :: Pasting Into Textedit Takes A Very Long Time?

Jun 23, 2012

I'm not sure when it started, though it was definitely after I updated to Lion, pasting into Textedit started taking longer and longer!

It doesn't seem to matter how much I'm pasting; I tested it by pasting one word, and pasting a paragraph, and they both took long enough that the spinning wheel came up for several seconds.

OS X :: Using Time Machine Restoring On New HDD - Time Machine To Recognize The Backup

Nov 19, 2008

I just replaced my HD on my 15"MBP. The install went well until restoring my data from Time Machine. The apps came over fine but none of my data did. Yes, I checked all the boxes on the "restore from backup" menu.

Of course now when I start up time machine the backup isn't there. How do I get Time Machine to recognize the backup? I have it on two places - a time capsule and a separate external HD.
