OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disabled Local Snapshots But Files Are Still On Drive

Jun 30, 2012

I disabled local snapshots because they were using up 43GB of hard disk space that I needed for other things.I used this command in terminal: sudo tmutil disablelocal..Instead of having the local snapshots be deleted, they are somehow littering my hard drive still.I have searched my drive, but still can't find them. Is there any way I can reclaim this hard disk space?I also tried running a repair in disk utility and re-indexing Macintosh HD.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Local Snapshots Not Working?

Jul 2, 2012

I've read Pondini's articles on this but I still can't work out why Time Machine isn't creating local snapshots of my machine. I have 72GB of 500GB free on my HDD which is definitely over the 10% threshold needed for local snapshots to work (I think) so I don't know why it isn't working.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Stop TM's Snapshots Without A Terminal Command

May 5, 2012

There is a possibility that there is something amiss with my external hard drive.  I have ejected the hard drive and read in a thread that there is a way to disable TM's continuous "local Snapshots" Backup with a command typed in Terminal.  The reasoning is that TM uses a lot of CPU's? and things can become a bit sluggish. If I turn TM to "OFF", doesn't this stop the hourly snapshots on the INTERNAL hard drive?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Local Hard Drive Marked As Excluded From Backups

Mar 18, 2012

It was under my understanding that on a laptop Lion will continue to take snaphots even when it is disconnected from the drive it uses to store time machine backups.  However I have a message back up failed, when I opened the time machine preferences I see this;

So I went in to the options to see what items are being excluded from the backups and lone behold my local drive is marked as to be excluded.  The problem is it is greyed out and I can't remove it. 

Also, I don't know if this is related, but when I try to look enter time machine there is nothing present.  The only time I can see my backups is by holding down the option key and selecting browse other backup disks. Is there a library file or something I can delete without loosing my past backup history?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Removing Address Book Contacts On Local Drive And Just Keeping ICloud Version

Jun 7, 2012

I have two sets of contacts in my address book, one on local drive and one from iCloud. How do I delete all the contacts from my local drive as they are all out of date?

I have tried deleting the contacts but they keep reappearing. I have tried to create a new group and they keep disappearing! I have read forums and some talk about removing the two addressbook.plist files but I don't even have those in my preference folder...

If I do not have those files, where is my address book storing these contact information and how do I get rid of them? It is driving me nuts having to deal with two lots of each contact and not being able to create groups or delete contacts.

OS X :: Local HTML / CSS Files Display Wrong

May 17, 2009

I have a CSS file that displays a repeated background. Only problem is, when I open the HTML file(linked with the CSS file to display the background) it doesn't show the background. This only happens when I'm opening the HTML file that is on my computer(local). I uploaded the exact same HTML/CSS files, and the needed images to my web server, then go to the link in my web browser and it displays 100% correct. So I know I haven't done anything wrong, coding wise. I have tried to open the local HTML/CSS files in multiple browsers(Opera, FireFox, Safari), and they all do the exact same thing. They display everything else correct, except there is never a background image. I am using a Mac Pro, with Leopard 10.5.7. Any ideas? Tell me if you need something more explained, or more details.

Software :: See Local HTML Files On Browser?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm new to a Mac and although I love the mac, I'm having a few issues that I simply can't figure out. trying to create a website locally that eventually I'll FTP to a live site. On the Mac I am using Safari and Firefox. When I bring up the .html file all I see is the code in those browsers. That same code on my pc brings up the website in Safari, Firefox or IE so it's not the code. I'm seeing things about a local server but don't know if that applies to me or not. In the address bar of the browser it says file:///Users/myusername/Documents/Website/TestSite.html where myusername is my actual User Name. I've also now checked web sharing and followed the directions on viewing webpages you put in your Sites folder (which is where I have overwritten the index.html file that came with the Mac) and now that doesn't work either. I'm getting a little frustrated. I'm sure this is a low level question, but I've never used a mac before so this is all new to me.

Applications :: Panic Transmit / Restore Deleted Local Files?

Dec 26, 2010

I've made a bit of a cock up with a website i've been developing, and being a bit new to all things Mac i've deleted some files.

Basically i've downloaded a copy of the website from the server to my local disc but the local copy also contained all my raw files PSD's etc. I didn't realise that transmit deleted the local copy before downloading and not merging them which is what most windows ftp software does.

Anyway, long story short, is there any way of restoring those files either via transmit or another bit of software ?

OS X Mavericks :: Restrict Local Users From Saving Files Locally?

Aug 20, 2014

Mainly because I have a teacher that wants students to save their work on a local server instead of saving work locally.   This sounds like something you could do using Group policy for a Windows OS, but not something that you can restrict in Mac OS X.   I just want to know for sure there isn't another way to do this on a Mac OS X.

MacBook :: How To Set Settings So Recent Snapshots Don't Go Over HD Icon

Nov 29, 2009

I sent my Macbook to the Genius repair, I could take snapshots and they would find their own space on the desktop. Now they go over the Macintosh HD icon. Same with whenever I insert a dvd, it goes over the HD icon. It's annoying because they all pile up on top of the HD icon.

Applications :: App For Snapshots / Thumbnails / Preview From Video?

Jan 3, 2010

I'm in need of an application that creates a single .jpg with multiple thumbnails within, giving you a preview of a video.

I have found a couple of apps that do this, such as Screen Grabber and QiPo. How ever, none of these are suitable;

Screen Grabber under 10.6 doesn't work with WMV files. The output image file is full of black frames.

QiPo is the best out of all of them, how ever it doesn't allow you to select how many thumbnails to have in the one preview image file (it's pre set to 18).

I have emailed the developer of Screen Grabber regarding a OS X 10.6 fix, but am yet to hear back from him, so in the mean time i am still trying to find a Mac app that can serve my needs.

PowerPC :: Accessing A Disabled IMac G5's Hard Drive?

Jul 25, 2008

I have an iMac G5 with a broken graphics card. As a result it won't get past the start up screen when booting. I have a new mac on the way, but I'm wondering what would be the easiest/cheapest way to access my files on the old iMac.

I've read about taking the HD out and using a SATA/USB connector to attach it to the new computer as an external HD. Is that my best option, or is there a way to boot the iMac and just access the HD via the iMac's firewire/usb ports.

I've run the CD diagnostic tests and it says everything is fine, except the graphics card.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Wifi Disabled After 10.7.4 Update

Jun 10, 2012

Wi-fi was working perfectly all they way till I ran the latest update 10.7.4.  

Now when I do a cold shut down, the wi-fi on the top right hand corner is blank. Cannot do anything to turn it back on. I always try to turn on, but fail.  

Basically, it comes down to restarting the computer and praying that the wi-fi signal comes back on. Sometimes, I have to do a cold restart and it seems I'm playing a gambling game. Maybe after 3-4 times the wi-fi signal will become normal again.  

This has been happening for about a month. Yes, I'm just getting around to complaining. I did not do time machine, so I cannot go back before this happend. Either, I do a whole another system install or there is a patch I could get.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Computer Local Host Name Already In Use On Network

May 10, 2012

After I upgraded to 10.7.4 I receive popup windows informing that: This computer's local hostname "ComputerName" is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to "ComputerName-1.local" every time my Mac wakes up. The number at the end of computer name increases every time I wake my Mac Pro up.

- Disk permissions repair brings no errors.
- After Mac restart - the same result
- As before I use both LAN and WiFi connections with LAN in higher priority.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Set Up With Caching DNS For Local Network?

Jun 16, 2012

Our new Lion Server has a static IP Address pointed to over the internet by our registrar's zone file. Planning the Lion Server installation process with the intent of hosting Web, Mail and Open Directory services to a small number of users who are nearly all located off-site. I do also want Lion Server to be a caching DNS Server and DHCP authority on the local network to replace what dnsmasq does on our current Linux server.

I am looking forward to offloading some of the lower level Linux administration tasks and putting myself in the hands of the Lion Server Setup Assistant and Server App :-) but at the same time don't understand some of  its assumptions and fear having to spend a lot of time experimenting and re-installing.

So, specifically, I want the Server App to know that my Lion Server has a "Host Name for the Internet" but that the DNS it sets up will not be the DNS for my zone - I will be managing that through my registrar's interfaces.

Second problem is my fnot understanding what name space devices on the local network will / should use. e.g.  The Linux server will be available for backups etc  on the local intranet (and optionally have a static ip address on the Internet) but MacBooks, PCs, iPads and iPhones will be served ip addresses by the Lion Server's DHCP. So will / should these dynamic devices have their machine names fully qualified by our domain name with RFC 1918 style ip addresses or something like .local?  How do I tell this to Lion's Server App / Setup Assistant? How easy is it to update these initial settings later?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: WiFi Disabled On Startup After Installing 10.7.3?

Feb 3, 2012

I have a late 2008 Aluminium Unibody MacBook (5,1) and installed 10.7.3 via software update without problems. But when I turned the machine on next morning, Wi-Fi was disabled and could not be activated via the menu bar control or network pref pane. After a couple of reboots--two, if I remember correctly--the MacBook booted up with Wi-Fi active and connected (I use a Fritz!Box 7390 WLAN router with both 2,4 and 5 GHz networks, connecting via 5 GHz by default). 

I did then repair disk permissions and re-applied the Combo update. No cure, obviously. Same again this morning - no Wi-Fi on startup first, connection just after a couple of reboots. Wi-Fi hardware (Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 , firmware always shows up in the system profile, it's just that it's disabled first.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Delete Time Machine Local Backup?

Mar 23, 2012

My MacBook Pro is running out of hard drive space, and the culprit is Time Machine. Apparently Time Machine stores local backups on the hard drive when it is not connected to the backup drive, and then is supposed to delete them when it does backup. However, this causes huge problems because I'm running out of hard drive space. I ran the following in Terminal to turn off the local backups: 

sudo tmutil disablelocal 

However, that has not freed up the hard drive space taken by the local backups.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Set Up A Local Wireless Network Without Access To Internet

May 18, 2012

In OSX 10.6, I can use "internet sharing" to set up a wireless network, connecting my wifi enabled music player (or Apple TV) to my MacBook Pro via wifi without actually connect my Macbook Pro to the Internet.  However with OSX 10.7 Lion, "internet sharing" requires actual connection to the Internet.  Is there a way to disable Lion's requirement?  All I need is to stream the music files in my Mac via wifi to my music player (Logitech Squeeze Box 3), and I don't always have access to the Internet.  Of course an Airport Express or any router would solve the problem, but that means one more device. 

Or, is there any other method to set up a local wireless network without actual Internet access?  I tried "Creat Network...." in Airport but that doesn't work with passive music player (or Apple TV).  It seems only work with computer to computer networking.
