OS X V10.7 Lion :: Transferring Large Amount Of Data (10 GB) Over Internet?
Mar 24, 2012
I'd like to transfer large amounts of data over the internet from my MacBook Air to my Mac Mini Server. Both are running 10.7. The Mac Mini Server is running 10.7 Server.†I'd like to transfer 10GB + back to the server. How to setup server to better transfer files this way? Is there a way to setup FTP within OS X Server settings, or is there a way in File Sharing settings that I could accomplish this?
I have a folder with about 600 funny photos that I randomly saved. And you know how pictures you save from sites have random long numbers as names? Well here is what I want: I want to know if there is a way to†automatically number all the photos starting from 1. Any way to do it that is already in Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 or recommend some software.
I am completely lost on what has happened to my computer. I have 900,007 photos in iphoto trash I am unable to delete. Each time I try I get a notice from apple. They are not my photos they are stuff from the internet I do not want and I do not know how they got there.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), had the computer since september.
My grandma just got a sweet new dell 17 inch studio laptop, shes moving up from Windows ME My grandpa also moved into the digital age by buying a super nice canon dslr I put the pictures on their harddrive and now I would like them to send it to me, I have no idea how to send that many pictures, the folder is probably to large for her verison email thing. Any one have any ideas?
If in aperture i have a folder/album with say 60GB of pics in (from one event, RAW pics). Then i have say 10 labelled with 5*.
If i load the folder only showing 5* pics, will it load immanently, or will it have to scan through all 60GB to find the *ed pictures.
At the moment, using Adobe Bridge on my old PC, it takes ages (hence why i separate them into 2 folders once sorted). I was hoping that aperture would just load the *ed ones if you tell it to and not have to look through all the files each time. (Bridge loads them, then sorts them).
Also, about stacks. i take lots of time lapses (frame by frame) so i end up with lots of similar pictures. If i had a stack with a few thousand pictures in, would aperture handle this well? If i had an album with 3 stacks in, each with 5000 pics in, will the album load quick, and only when i open a stack it take longer to load.
way to store 10 to 20 TBs of data. It needs to be readily accessible, but it doesn't need to be extremely fast. A normal usb 2 connection is fine, as well as firewire or esata or ethernet. I do transfer large files, but there is no urgent need for them to be lightening quick.As it stands now, I have several external drives just hooked up to my computer. I'd like to avoid continuing that method. I want only one volume to show up on my mac. It doesn't have to be through raid striping, though I don't really know of another way; maybe just a container volume that has all the drives in it?
I am looking for free (Or very cheap) software that would allow me to add watermarks to a large amount of images at one time so I wouldn't have to manually put a watermark on each photo. Anyone know good software for this?
Also I have Photoshop CS4, I don't know if theres some way to do it with that though...
I have 750GB MacBook Pro and up until the other day I showed 250GB used and 500GB unused. I discovered this because the past two days my computer would just freeze and I couldn't do anything. So I ran the Disc Utility and it found some errors and fixed them. So I'm wondering if the 400GB of lost disc space now has something to do with the computer locking up? I've searched all the folders and added up their size and still come back to 250GB that I can see. So I'm assuming there's something hidden somewhere that's eating up over half my hard disc space?

I needed to make 40 dvd's. My burner is burnt out on my mac. I've created all the dvd's as iso files with iDVD. Now I need to transfer them to my PC that has a functioning burner. SOOOO... transferring 81.5 GB of data over a network will take days. Having said that, I'm using an unsecured network that drops out frequently. (I just moved in, it'll be weeks until the phone company can hook up my internet... we just had a hurricane and they're busy with repairs). Next idea, use a flash drive. Most of the iso files are bigger than 4Gb - so FAT32 is out. What's left?
which sounds promising, but once the files are split, how do I join them back together on my PC? Oh, and did I mention that this job is for a client and they're waiting on it. STRESS!!
Here is my situation... I have a file on my macbook pro that is an .iso file that is 5.5 GB big... I want to move it to my desktop PC so I can use the file.. I have a external hard drive, but i get the "error code 0" thing when I try and move it over, which now i know is because its in a FAT32 format....
Are there any solutions, or any other ways that I can transfer this file to my desktop PC?
Do I need a special cord to transfer large files from one mac to another? Examples pictures etc... Can I just plug usb between the two and go? I really do not want to burn DVD or transfer to external HD....
I have a 8gb memory stick and want to transfer my 5gb zip file to it but I get error code 0. I read this is because my zip file is too big in FAT format and that if I change it to ntsf or something I'll be able to transfer it.
1. How do I change it into ntsf format 2. What should I download to write into the ntsf format memory stick on my mac.
Got a slight problem transferring files from my Macbook Pro to my portable hard drive. My portable hard drive is partitioned into NTFS and FAT 32. The files are over 4gb big so ultimately I cant copy it to the FAT 32 partion and NTFS doesnt seem to work with mac books
I am trying to transfer a large file (~7GB) from my macbook pro to my external drive... but seems that I keep getting an error. If I try to drag and drop from my Mac drive to the folder of my external hard drive I keep getting this message: 'The operation can?t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0).' I tried to use a UNIX command with the Terminal $mv file.xxx /Volumes/HardDrive/ at first it seemed to work, but after a while I receive this message from the Terminal: 'File too large' I am now frustrated... I need to save this large file for backup purposes and my external hard drive is not big enough to be used for Time Machine (it has 80GB out of 160 of space left)
MacBook os x 10.4 120GB Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz 1 GB
my mac was getting really slow so i wiped and reloaded the hd. it was zippy for a couple hours, then started bogging down again. i saw huge amounts of data being written to the hd when i wasn't using my computer, 10+ GB over a couple days i was only checking email. how can i find out what program is writing to my hd?
I have 1.9TB on one drive, 645GB on another; I want to copy all that data onto a separate 6TB drive....
What's the fastest way to do this? I have already begun w/ 2 cp -pR commands, running in different Terminal windows, but seem to be getting lower disk activity numbers in Activity Monitor than I was with a brief test of a Finder copy... is that possible?
Any suggestions? Also looking for a (relatively) efficient way to verify the copied data after the fact.
I use robocopy (command line copy utility built into windows) to sync ~150GB of data between multiple windows machines. I've never had any issues, it will run and check the data to make sure it is synchronized, if there are no changes it can check the 150GB in a few minutes.
Now I have a Mac 10.6 that will have a copy of the data on an HFS partition. I'm connecting to the Mac from a Windows 7 machine via file sharing in Mac to Windows. I have robocopied the data onto the Mac system. However when I re-run robocopy all the files show up as Older or Newer time stamp so it will have to recopy everything making it useless for synching just changes.
I've tried the /fft switch for use with fat32 and file systems that don't store the time as precisely as NTFS
I've tried the /dst switch to check and see if Daylight savings is messing it up.
Anyone else have this issue?
Can you suggest any utilities that you use to sync large amounts of data between mac and windows?
I have big (8gig) ISO files on my Macbook which I want to put on my PC running Win XP which does not have a connection. So networking is out of the question. I have an external HD, but it is formatted only to work with my PC. So using an external HD is out of the question. My Macbook has got into the habit of spitting out blank discs when I put them in - something I don't have the patience to get fixed at a shop right now. (I can't be without my laptop for any extended period). So burning a disc is out of the question. I tried turning my Mac into an HD by holding the T key on boot. But I cannot attach it to my PC via firewire because my PC does not recognise firewire (for some reason, though the port is there...). So...that's out of the question. I decided to try a USB transfer cable and went on a hunt for a USB cable which did not have USB on one end and a square plug on the other. I need one with USB on BOTH ends, that looks like a firewire but is a USB. It's awfully impossible to find such a thing in great number. I found one that was incompatible with Mac/XP transfers. I tried using a 16 gig USB drive but could only transfer 4gb chunks of data at a time. So what the hell am I to do now? How do I get this data off my mac and onto my PC?
I've got a couple questions. My brother is selling his iBook and upgrading to a Macbook.
1) Transferring his stuff. We don't have the Macbook yet, and the person buying needs it today. We do have some pretty beefy external hard drives. What's the best way to transfer all his preferences/files/apps to the external hard drive that'll also make it easy for the Macbook to import? Note that the external can fit the entire iBook hard drive no problem, if that makes a difference.
2) Wiping his info after - I assumed a clean reinstallation of OS X is the way to wipe all his info off and make the iBook ready to change hands. Is that the right way? Is there someone else we should do to make it ready to bid farewell to?
I have already received some help from macdog about my future mac HD, but I was wondering about transfering some data from my pc. I am only wanting to transfer a couple gigs of videos, but I don't know the best way to do it. I thought about using ethernet connection to achieve this, but I am not the best with network stuff like that.
I find it very easy to transfer data between my imac and macbook. However I have a dell laptop that i use for surfing the web if my macs are doing something. I'd like to be able to transfer data between the two. I am able to pull files from my dell because it shows up in my "shared" area. Is there a way to find my mac on my windows laptop? I don't really use windows so I am unsure how to do this?
I recently bought a second hand mac from ebay and it was pretty empty. There are some settings still from the previous user.¬†
My old mac's backlight has died and the only way to use it is to link it up to my tv.¬†
I have tried using the Migration assistant via WI-FI and ethernet cable and both haven't worked.¬†
I'm considering taking the hard drive out of the mac and using it as an external hard drive. There are a couple of programs i've tried to download but dont work and i'd really like my firefox settings back!¬†
I was also wondering if i was able to take the RAM from the old mac and install it in the new mac?¬†¬†
Have purchased a used white intel core two duo imac. It's not in my possession yet.
1. Backing up before transferring data. Can I use one of those key things (don't know what they are called) that fit into usb port? 2. Once I've backed up, what is best way to connect the two computers for transferring files? 3. My understanding is that by using migration assistant, it will transfer all of those files necessary for a particular application...is this correct, and if so, will it then put those files where they should be?
About 10 minutes ago I was transferring some files from a USB stick when my Macbook just stopped responding to the click-pad. I can't right/double-click on anything! The cursor works fine and I can move it around but if I hit the clickpad, nothing happens... I can't get into anything, change anything...
I don't know what to do. I tried using the trackpad to click instead but all that does is give me a lasso tool and still can't click anything but it selects icons on my desktop. It also just selects the top bar automatically but I can't click on anything in the menu.
I thought it was my hardware but I plugged in a mouse and still nothing! I can left-click with the mouse but not right-click. I've tried rebooting and nothing changed.
It's like my right-click is constantly pressed down. But it's not physically.
Also, when I leave it alone it tries to go into the screensaver but constantly comes back out again, so it results in flashing between Flurry and my desktop.
I've just got a new MBP. I'm in the process of backing up my old laptop with time machine, so that I can transfer everything to the new computer with the migration assistant. I will have just enough space on my hard drive to do this. However the external HD is only 160 Gb and I would rather have a much bigger drive to use with time machine, and use this device to carry other files around. I don't want to lose the old backup data though. Is there any way to copy back up data onto a new time machine HD?
I've been using an old G4 iLamp model for years, and it's been wonderful. Today it wouldn't start up, and the repair guys told me that the power supply and logic board were shot. Doing the quick math, the cost of repair got me more than halfway to a much better machine, so I'll probably get a new iMac.
When I do, how do I get my information from the backup drive (LaCie using Quicksilver that backs up everything every night) onto the new machine? What about all of the software that is registered to the old machine serial #? Do I have to reregister it all? Is it as simple as plugging the backup drive up to the new machine and dragging and dropping literally everything on it onto the new hard drive?
