OS X V10.7 Lion :: Retrieve Data Out Of A Corrupted Folder?

Apr 28, 2012

Some how through interacting through my iMac file system via PlayStation3 Media Server and my Macbook Pro, the permissions on my Movies folder were what I can only describe as totally nuked and I can no longer access my data.  There are no longer any permissions associated with my movies folder in my user's home directory.  Accordingly, I cannot access the large volume of movies (all law fully copied from hard copies which I own, of course) via local disk acess or over the network through my Playstation 3 or by mounting my user volume onto my Macbook Pro. I did change the owner via the terminal and the chown command but while the directory comes up when I look at the permissions using root access, when navigating through the finder I still cannot access the data in the folder. 

I would like to try to get my movies back.

OS X :: How To Recover Data From A Possible Corrupted Folder?

Jan 31, 2009

would need some help on this matter.

- It's on an external hdd, 1tb Western Digital MyBook hooked via firewire.
- It's a folder containing music (MP3 + FLAC).
- All the data in that folder is gone, 0 file, tried on my Macbook and Windows desktop and both came out with the same result.
- External HDD is NTFS, using Paragon NTFS on my Macbook.
- The data are still in the hdd, just that it doesn't show any data in the folder, because the space used is still there + the songs still play on my media player library list.

So main problem here is, how what do I need to do to view the data in that folder now.

MacBook Pro :: Lost Data From Broken Hard Drive / How To Retrieve Data

Dec 10, 2014

I have lost all my data from my harts drive. The laptop is under warranty. I have been told that they have replaced my hard drive but could not get any data off the old one. I have now lost all my data, photos, files, music etc. NO backups, only simply because i did not know how to do them. Is there any way of getting the files back? All my work spreadsheets and accounts were also lost.

Software :: Images And Other Data Getting Corrupted

Aug 9, 2009

I have an imac, running 10.4.11. Suddenly I'm having a problem viewing images I've loaded onto the computer. I get the following error - "Couldn't open the file. It may be corrupt or a file format that Preview doesn't recognize." It's very random though. Initially I may be able to view the file (typically a .jpeg), then later I can't, or some of it appears but it's corrupted.

I've tried this using pictures from several different digital cameras/memory cards, so I don't think it's a fault on that end. Also, I've had some problems merely opening up screenshots, and TextEdit files - though again, this seems random. Thinking there might be cache issues, I cleared the history folder, but that didn't help.

Hardware :: Data On RAID 1 Get Corrupted - Need To Reformat

Jun 24, 2009

Ever since I got this 2TB external (Maxtor Onetouch III RAID 1) I've had it running in it's default RAID 0 set up and it's been fine, however, recently Leopard's been finicky about loading it. (every so often it seems that the data has been corrupted and I have to reformat). I have the equivalent amount of space on other external discs so I haven't lost anything truly important. So that's the situation, here's what I have been thinking about.

I've been thinking of trying to set it up to be RAID 1 so that I can pinpoint whether one of the drives inside if failing or whether I should just try to call Seagate and see if the drive is still under warranty. Does anyone here know the best way to set up this drive to RAID 1? I know I can set up RAID arrays via Disk Utility, but I can't get DU to recognize each drive separately. (setting it to have 2 partitions of equal size doesn't work either, it comes back as RAID failed)

OS X :: How To Retrieve Data From Old Hard Drive

Jul 9, 2010

On my G4 I noticed the ? momentarily on start up, so I was going to boot from the disc to make a repair. The icon for the disc wouldn't come up on the desktop. Put a music CD in, didn't work. Was going to try to boot from 9.2 and now all I get is the floppy with the question mark. I've tried to get it to boot from the CD, (no luck) tried all I know to at least get it to boot up somewhere without luck. Broke down and bought a new imac, (it was time) and tried to retrieve my files and such from Mozy, but some critical ones are missing. Is there anyway to retrieve the data from my old hard drive, say take it out and go to the Apple store later today?

MacBook Pro :: Data Backup And Retrieve?

Mar 20, 2012

I have a Macbook Pro Late 2008 Model and have both my Iphone and iPad synced to it.I intend to save all my data from the macbook to a Time Machine and then sell my macbook as I intend to buy a new one this July.

1) would I be able to retrieve all my settings and data from the Time Machine to my new Macbook.

2) Would my iPhone and iPad Sync with the new macbook or would I need to set up a new sync ? I am hoping once I am able to retrieve all my settings and data from Time Machine to the New Macbook both my iPhone and iPad would be able to sync without requiring the need for a new sync setup .

Software :: Disk Doubler - Retrieve Old Data

Mar 8, 2008

I'm leaving it even later than most to retrieve some old data. I have some Quark 3.32 (I think) files that were DDd in 98-99 and I'd like to retrieve them. As these are essentially text files I'm not in the slightest bothered about how they appear but if I can get the words back it would be marvellous. I've seen people suggesting DDexpand.sea but that doesn't seem to help. I have OSX and not Classic or OS9 or anything like that - have I left it too late? The material is not sensitive so even if I could send a couple of files to someone to extract that would be wonderful

MacBook Pro :: Retrieve Data From Broken Hard Drive?

Sep 3, 2014

My macbook suddenly crashed and I had to do a forced shutdown. When I tried to turn it back in, a folder with a question mark kept flashing and by computer did not start. I looked up what might have been the cause of this, and I found out it was my hard drive or the cable that connects the drive to the mac. But I brought it to my school since they have tech support and they said that my hard drive is pretty much dead, but it can still be possible to retrieve the data from. I need to hand in my Extended essay in about one week and I already had done quite a lot for my essay. how to get all my data back, or past it to a new hard drive.

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 V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Access Data (Music Files) In Folder On External Disk?

Jun 22, 2012

I am using a Mac Mini with OS X 10.7. I am having an issue with an external disk that was previously used as my main file source with an older Mac Mini. It seems there is a certain folder on the disk that I can't open or access that contains my lossless music files. When I look at the permissions it doesn't let me set them and also doesn't show "me", with the name I use to login to the system, as having access, or even showing up in the permissions on GetInfo.
