OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Deleting Old Folder Names

Apr 23, 2012

I am using Image Capture 4.0 to download photos.  When I plug in my storage device (camera, SD card, USB stick, etc.) Image Capture opens and along with the option to select the download folder, all the names of the folders (grayed out) I have used since I first started using the computer appear.  These are folders I no longer use, but to get to the actual area or folder that I want to download to, I have to scroll past a couple hunderd previous, grayed out folder names.  Once I get to the actual desired folder, I can download to it. But, those annoying, old folder names still appear on the hard drive.

Info:
iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

OS X :: Deleting Preference Folder / Files List On Leopard 10.5.8?

Jan 21, 2010

I have a June 2009 17" 2.8 UMBP which has been driving me mad with near constant beach balls! I run no intensive programmes at all - just emails & surfing the net!

I originally used migration assistant from a Tiger MBP to this one & read that I may have corrupted Tiger P-Lists transferred over to my Leopard One. I would like to ask, how can I get rid of/delete my current preferences list to see if that fixes the problem - it did with another person who also transferred from Tiger to Leopard with Migration Assistant!

Will I lose anything by deleting the Preferences Folder/Files? I think I read somewhere that OS X automatically replaces them with current versions if that is correct? Ae Preference Lists taken care of too when deleting the folder/files?

I am a novice so please treat me like a 4 year old who needs very step by step instructions!

OS X :: Can't Change Folder Names?

Oct 17, 2006

I have a Macbook Pro.

For some reason when I make a new folder now, I can't change the name. It just stays at Untitled Folder. I right clicked and did "Ownership and permissions" and made sure that the i was able to "read AND write". I am and so are all my groups and other. I didn't click "apply to enclosed items" cus i didn't know what it meant and it said "you can't undo this action"..

I can't even change the names to any folders i currently have. Or files I have as well. Delete doesn't even work...it just stays at whatever name it currently has.

Applications :: How To Tag Folder Names As Album In ITunes?

Nov 7, 2010

I did a bunch of googling, and couldn't find an answer to this or how to do this except with windows-based mp3tag apps.

I have a collection of .WAV files with no tags or filenames at all, but they are all nested in folders that are named with the album the files are from. All the actual .WAV file names are just Track01, Track02, etc. Obviously if I imported these as-is it would be a disorganized disaster.

I am trying to import them into my iTunes library as ALAC lossless-compressed files.

All I would like to do is have the imported files tagged with the folder as the album name.

I can't seem to find any tag editor that will do this on a Mac. I don't want to sit here for hours in iTunes manually entering the album tag for each imported song, that would take ages. Are there any options, or do I brew a pot of coffee...?

OS X :: OSX Truncating Folder Names On Fat32 Volume

Jul 19, 2009

I have an external hard drive with several music folders on it. Volume is formatting FAT32 so I can move/edit between osx and windows. When on the OSX side, several folders are renamed into shorter versions. If I try to name it the original folder name it SHOULD have, OSX says I can't because it already exists.

I've attached a screen shot of one of the folders. This folder is supposed to say "red hot chili peppers - mother's milk 1989" :-/ Is this just a downside to using a fat32 volume in OSX? All the folders look fine in windowz.

Intel Mac :: Display Folder Names Of More Than 20 Characters In OS 10.7.4?

Jul 1, 2012

There's the following terminal code flaoting around on the web:  

defaults write com.apple.finder FXDesktopLayoutGridCharCount 50; killall Finder 

This works great, but only for OS 10.5 – 10.6. So is seeing more than 20 characters in a folder name even possible in OS 10.7.4?

Applications :: How To Append File Names With Folder Path?

Mar 18, 2009

I'm looking for a way to rename a batch of 30,000 photos. I have renamer but I don't think it does what I need it to do. I want to append the file name with the folder path. The photos are organized in folders which give info I want to make part of the filename itself (country, city etc.)

I am sure there is a way but...don't know how. Freeware or native apple way preferred over having to buy a new program.

Applications :: Need App To Create Text File Of All Folder Names On A Hard Drive

Feb 9, 2010

I just started using an eSata cradle to start doing my backup and archiving (I'm a photographer). Once I fill up the drive I'll be putting them in a safe but I'd like to have a printout bundled with them that lists all the jobs that are on the drive (the jobs are separated and named by folder on the drive)

I could go through and write them all down manually but I'd love to have a program that could automate it for me.

I'm working on a macpro that is running OSX 10.4

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recover Formatted External Hard Drive With File Names And Folder Structure

May 24, 2012

I accidentally formatted my external hard drive when I was creating a Windows USB install disk with Boot Camp It was a HFS+ formatted drive with a GUID partition table and 2 partitions: one clone of my Macbook OS, and one with personal data. I'm not worried about the OS clone, I'm more concerned about getting my personal data back on the second partition.So far I've used Stellar Phoenix and Data Rescue 3. I reformatted the hard drive from FAT to HFS+ before I did these scans. Not sure if it was a good idea, but the programs wouldn't scan properly otherwise.Stellar finds my files with the original folder structure, but I can't open any of the files, even though the file sizes seem to be correct. Data Rescue partially finds the original folder structure, and also has a "Reconstructed files" section which has all my files sorted by file type and without the original file name. I really want to avoid going through all my photos, videos, etc. one by one to sort them out.

Can I still recover my files in the original folder structure? Why can Stellar find all my files basically intact, but I can't open anything? In the meantime, I'm going to try scanning with Disk Drill and FileSalvage with fingers crossed...

OS X :: Deleting Contents Of Downloads Folder Okay?

Jul 8, 2010

I have been using Macs for years, but I haven't got into particulars. Anyways, I wanted to know if I delete the contents of the Downloads folder, will it adversely affect the files that are actually stored in there. Meaning, will it delete them from other areas of my computer. I have random powerpoints, pictures, word documents, music, etc. in the downloads folder. It's reaching almost a 1000 files! I noticed that the music is in my iTunes music folder and some of the documents are stored in the documents folder.

OS X :: Deleting Previous Systems Folder Secure?

Aug 21, 2010

I got some good advice about deleting dmg files so I thought I'd ask about the Previous Systems folder on the HD. I recently tried to delete too much and had to reboot from the disk. It put a folder named "Previous Systems" on the HD and its taking up 7.72 GB. I'm back up again and up to date. Everything seems to be working. I know I screwed up before so I'm asking here before I delete too much again.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Reordering File Names?

Jun 14, 2012

When reordering the file names adding a 'space' before the name forces that name to the top of the alpha sorted list (can add more spaces to 'nest' too). In the (good?) old days of OS7 adding opt+8 at the start of the name added a bullet and forced the file to the bottom of said list.  Doesn't work now (sob!) - also forces file to top.

MacBook Pro :: Deleting PDF Files In Downloads Folder - Is It Safe?

Sep 10, 2014

I want to know If I can delete items in my downloads folder.  I HAVE DONE NOTHING specific to these files.  The majority of them are files I opened as email attachments.  NO, I haven't moved them or saved them.  NO I haven't imported them to itunes.  NO they aren't files ending in .dmg.  Almost ALL are pdf.  On another post regarding this question the chosen answer was, "you can delete from downloads folder without affecting the applications, so you CAN'T delete them without any problems".  This statement is contradicting

Should it not have been worded, "YES you CAN delete without any problems"?  And it didn't indicate if it included pdf files.  ( i believe they were discussing copies of apps or programs in the downloads folder). 

I just want to know what will happen to these pdf files.  Do I need to move 229 files IF i want to preserve them somewhere on my Mac, or are they already saved elsewhere as a pdf?
