OS X V10.7 Lion :: Takes Long Time To Find Free Space After Emptying Trash?
Jul 1, 2012
After emptying the trash, I've noticed that Lion does not see the additional free space until after doing a reboot, and even after that it takes a long time for it to find all the new free space.¬†Anybody know what's wrong with the trash system?
I am new to Macs. I recently setup a router (D-Link 655) and attached my Lexmark E260dn printer to it using a static IP address 192.168.0.100. I added a printer to my MBP but when I print something it seems to take an unusually long time to find the printer. The printer dialog says "looking for printer" until it actually starts to print. I added the same printere to my aging Windows XP system using the install CD and it works as you would expect. Files begin printing immediately. What might I be doing wrong from the MBP?

I recently had to have my Macbook Unibody screen replaced. After they replaced the screen, they forgot to install the airport card. They had to take the computer back and replace the airport card. Now every time I turn on the airport card it literally takes like a minute to find any networks. That doesn't seem like a long time but next time you open your macbook see how long it takes to find networks. What should I do? Also when ever I click on the airport logo it says it is constantly scanning. Even when i am connected to a network.
I have about 22GB or about 23,500 items to be emptied from the trash. Most of items are just jpg images. I just started to commence emptying and it is taking approximate 1sec to delete one item. So by calculation, it will take 6.5 hrs. !
At same time, I'm just doing my normal spread sheet work.
My computer crashed last night. When I started it back up, the permissions on one of my internal drives in my Mac Pro that I store data on had changed. This caused some problems when trying to open applications with files stored on that volume (i.e. my Adobe Lightroom catalog). I fixed these issues, and then restarted my Mac. When I did, I saw this:¬†
I've since restarted my computer a few times, and it's doing this every time.¬†

Not too long ago I looked through the list of things I had put in the Trash.¬† Some how I over looked a document I should have removed from the Trash and Empetyed Trash.¬† There is some way to locate what has been empteyed from the Trash and get it onto the Desktop.¬† How do I do that?¬†
I have not Secured Empty Trash... so my document should still be able to be found and removed from the Emptey Trash.
I made the mistake of deleting an unwanted set of Time Machine backups using the finder.¬† Now I get an error message when I attempt to empty the trash.¬† I have tried operating in safe mode and using option+empty, but neither works.¬† ¬†
I understand there is a command that one can issue in Terminal to erase those trash files, but I wasn't able to find it.
Basically I have a MacBook Pro which logs in fine when I'm at work but when I'm on my home network it takes like 5 minutes to authenticate. All appearances are that it's trying to reach my work network to authenticate. Short of disabling wireless or having it prompt for my home network password before joining wireless, is there any way that I can either shorten the timeout or have it bypass network authentication when I'm at home?
My Mac Pro takes two minutes to start up.¬† It is also sluggish during normal operation.¬† I have Parallels and a external hard drive installed. Do either of these contribute to this problem? Or is there a program that can be used to defrag the hard drive. (I recall having similar problems with my IBM computer.¬† When it was defragged the performance of the unit improved).
I own a MacBook Pro (bought new in June-July 2009) and are having problems with my WiFi. I mostly use FireFox on both my mac and windows computer. I use a linksys router and have AT&T DSL. A lot of times web pages take really long times to load or do't even load at all. Web pages on my windows computer load almost fine.
I'm not sure if the OS upgrade to 10.6.3 is involved or not, but I've noticed that all of a sudden, ssh connections to my Linux box would take like 30 seconds before I'd get a prompt. I tried lots of different things to resolve the problem, but what finally worked was disabling "-Y", forwarding X11. Can anyone give any insight into this and help me resolve it so that I can forward X11 without the connection taking forever to establish?
Where else I can look what's being executed upon boot? because under process I see BlackBerry's Daemon (I'm no longer BlackBerry user, I'm okay to leave Application, but I don't want it to boot up during startup) and I'm pretty sure there is other stuff as well.
I'm running 10.5.8 on my MBA. Lately I noticed when I start terminal, the program seems to launch right away. However the terminal window stays blank for a long time before the command prompt shows up. during this time usage of Safari becomes very slow too so feels like it's hugging on to some resource.
so a few days ago I tried to install a package of new fonts using font-book. I tried to (stupidly) install something like 1500 fonts at one time, which eventually crashed my machine. When I restarted my computer, it loaded all the way to the desktop where it stalled for like 10mins and then eventually started working OK. Now everytime I restart it, the same thing happens- I get to the desktop and all that loads for the first 10 mins is the little search icon in the top right corner. I tried the restore disks and used the 'store everything in a "previous system" file' option because I am really trying to avoid a clean erase. I've also tried clearing my cache and doing a nvram clear. Nothing has worked so far. The computer is acting like it is doing a lot of extra work in the background but I can't figure out what. I am tempted to think it might have something to do with some junky fonts I tried to install but that sounds too simple. I am running a g5 Imac on 10.4.11.
I was at the genius bar today because my mac was really sluggish. We discovered after lots of exploration that my trash appeared to be performing exactly correctly but in fact there were 900 files in there that had never actually been deleted. This created a disconnect between the trash and the system so it was slowing performance significantly.†
I have a MBP, the model before the new unibody anyways the last few days the tool bar above that has the wifi battery status and so forth takes a long time to load while booting what gives ? Anyways this just started a few days ago, do not know if I had installed something to slow it down.
Firefox works great, but when I quit the app, I have to sit and wait several minutes for it to finish quitting before closing my laptop. It's not a big deal, but it's annoying at times - especially when I'm rushing in between clients. I'd like to be able to just quit and close and off I go. Is there any way to lessen the time that it takes FF to quit?
My MacBook Air (13-inch, mid-2013) takes a long time to connect to any wi-fi network (~ 30 seconds), including known/previously connected ones. Upon wake from sleep, the network will have disconnected and will have to reconnect, again taking about 30 seconds. Also, I notice that even when the display turns off briefly, the network will still disconnect. It does not matter which network it is. However, Power Nap notifications will still show up and be up to date upon wake, suggesting that the disconnection is happening only when I wake the computer.¬†
Things I have tried:
- removing all networks
- toggling wake for wi-fi network access and put hard disks to sleep when possible
- setting Location
- deleting all network system preference files and restarting
- resetting SMC
- restoring OS X Mavericks (10.9.3, clean install) with no recovery of network settings¬†
