OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Get An "error Code 8003" And Messages That Don't Have Permission To Move Or Delete Files

Apr 24, 2012

I moved the files from my external hard drive from the back up files made by Time Machine into the trash, as I've always done. This time I get an error message (error code 8003) and am not allowed to move the files back onto the drive or out of the trash, even after changing the permissions. I've searched the support forum for error code 8003, but find nothing that relates to back up files.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Copying Files Between Hard Disks Interrupted By Error Code -36

Mar 18, 2012

This error probably indicates a hardware problem or some system malfunction. I usually try to find out what exactly went wrong to take measures to avoid the repetition of the same problem. Exchanging the HD and restoring the sytem may be the quicker solution, but I would miss an opportunity to reconfigure my system to make it more robust. 

The system in question is a MacMini (Model A1347) with Os-X-Server 10.6.7. and 2 physical HDs: HD1 has 2 Partitions, the smaller for the server OS, the larger for the Shares (We use the MacMini only as a file server). HD2 is not used (was kept in reserve for cases like this).  

That there may be a problem manifested itself first when the mounting of the shares on HD1 became suddenly slow (within 2-3 days) and eventually failed. I first tried to copy all the files from the shares on HD1 to HD2 before attempting any repair actions. Most of the files copied properly but a few failed with error (-36). Those few can be restored from backups, so there is no data loss. Remains the question, what went wrong?  

It may be pure coincidence but just before the File-Server failed there was an attempt to upgrade a 3rd party software on one of the clients (17'' MacBook Pro / OS X 10.6.8) to a newer version. Could be that new version was part of the problem because the data files of this 3rd party software are stored on one of the shares on HD1 and the data file format has been changed between the versions. For obvious reasons I need to make sure that this data file conversion was not the cause of the problem?

1) first check the HD1 with a different tool than DiskUtility (It thinks the HD1 is in perfect shape), TechTool Pro or DiskWarrier comes to my mind, any reason to prefer one over the other? 

2) Hopefully those tools can reliably test whether the HD1 is damaged or not. If it is the former the HD1 replacement option is the way to go and there is no more reason the 3rd party software may have been involved. However if HD1 is not damaged I'm left with the uncertainty of what exactly lead to the problem..? 

3) Is there any check I should do before I just re-format the HD and re-install the OS and switch back to  an earlier version of the 3rd party software to be on the safe side?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Includes PowerPC Code

Sep 3, 2009

Even if you never 'install' Rosetta, PowerPC is still in yer system, slowin' U down. That means the only reason Rosetta has to be 'installed' is probably to reduce their licensing costs to Transitive (now IBM). Interestingly, there is some ppc in there:

Code:
$ file Foundation
Foundation: Mach-O universal binary with 3 architectures
Foundation (for architecture x86_64):Mach-O 64-bit dynamically linked shared library x86_64
Foundation (for architecture i386):Mach-O dynamically linked shared library i386
Foundation (for architecture ppc7400):Mach-O dynamically linked shared library ppc
I'll probably install Rosetta eventually, I just don't need any PPC software at the moment.

Mac Mini :: The Operation Can’t Be Completed Because An Unexpected Error Occurred (error Code -50)

Apr 21, 2012

I am getting this error  "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50)." when I try to transfer files from my Mac Mini to my External Harddrive which is connected to my Airport Extreme. "  The error does not appear to happen all the time.  It does seem consistent if I am transfering files and then try to transfer more.   

The files I am transferring are .mp4.  It does not appear to care about the size of the file, it happens with small files and large files, I can transfer some large folders (2.54G). I can connect the hard-drive externally directly to the mac mini and it will transfer any file.

OS X :: Inside Snow Leopard's UTI - Apple Fixes Creator Code

Sep 22, 2009

Snow Leopard's abandonment of Creator Code metadata, used to open a file with its creating application, has some users are worried that Apple has killed off a core Mac-centric feature. Instead, Apple has invented a superior alternative for the old Creator Code in order to support a variety of new features. Here's why, and what the new Uniform Type Identifiers offer. What is a Creator Code?

Back in the early 80s, Apple developed a variety of unique conventions to make the Macintosh intuitively easy to use, almost to a magical extent. One example pertains to invisible file metadata that helped the system identify documents using Type and Creator Codes. Each file was tagged with both a Type and a Creator, allowing the system to distinguish between applications that could open a file and the default application that should open the file. The Finder could also use this invisibly associated file metadata to present custom file icons for different files of the same type but created by different applications, such as two JPEGs, one saved by Graphic Converter and the other by Photoshop..............
