OS X V10.7 Lion :: Data About Items And Space In Window Missing?

May 16, 2012

Prior to Lion, whenever I open a window at bottom it would show # of items and space available in that window.†Now all that info is missing in Lion. How can I get it back?†Looking at options under Finder, I don't spot a way to restore like "15 items, 7GB available" as I used to see.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Print Window Doesn't Show Preview Button Anymore

Feb 15, 2012

This button allowed (in Snow Leopard and even in Tiger) to see the final page full size, or even to save as a PDF file. This functionality is sadly missing on my computer since I have upgraded to LION, making me regret the move. Is there some pref somewhere that I should adjust, or just plainly forget about it. ? When I print, the dialog window does NOT show the Preview button anymore.

I am on a MacBook Pro 17".

MacBook :: Hard Drive Space Doesn't Add Up?

May 25, 2012

Im having a problem with my HD on my MacBook Air 2011 with 128Gb SSD and Lion. 

Since about a month after I purchased my computer, I started to notice low HD space. I started managing it but couldnt keep it with more than 15 Gb of space. I transfered my biggest file, a Parallels Desktop virtual machine to an external HD. I have disabled Time Machine and have removed most of my files from the computer. My User folder barely uses 27 Gb of HD Space. The Get Info shows that I have used 90.84 Gb and have 29.63 Gb Free. But when I try to add all of the folders from the HD (Applications, Library, Syste, Users) it comes with a 42.42 Gb used number. 

I tried lots of programs like Disk Inventory X, WhatSize, OmniDisk Sweeper, etc, and all come up with an aprox. 43.38 used Gb number, so there is no discrepancy between these programs and what Finder is telling me. Here is a screenshot I took with WhatSize.

Where is the rest of the space going? Im lost on what to do to empty space.

OS X Mavericks :: Why Does Time Machine Say Wireless Hard Drive Doesn't Have Enough Space When It Clearly Does

Dec 1, 2014

I have a 2 TB western digital hard drive connected via USB to my airport extreme (Y2012) that i've been using the past 2 years to connect to wirelessly. The hard drive has 2 partitions, ~1 TB each. 1 partition for backing up, the other for storing media. Recently I deleted my macbook pro backup. My macbook pro has a 500GB hard drive, of which about 120 GB is free. 

Since I deleted the old time machine backup disk image and told time machine to start a new backup, I am now receiving an error. It's telling me there isn't enough room on the drive, when the 1TB partition i'm trying to use (as i've sucessfully done in the past) has nothing on it. 1 full TB free, and my macbook pro can't backup a 500 GB hard drive, which isn't even full itself. 

I have a macbook pro early 2011, and I never know when the board is going to go koput again and I don't currently have a backup of my stuff while this problem persists.

IMac Intel :: Lacie External Hard Drive Doesn't Show Up - Sporadically Appears In Disk

Feb 19, 2009

Odd stufff, I have a 500 gig Lacie ext HD that my user uses on her Vista machine...

I am setting up a replacement for the Vi$ta machine, which is a 24 inch imac.

I plugged in the ext HD and nothing happened after I powered on the ext HD.

I checked disk utility and it showed up but as a 2TB size ext HD...

I unplugged the Lacie and plugged it back in and all the info showed up correctly.

But ALL the buttons under "First Aid" are greyed out so I cant verify permissions, disk, or repair disk or permissions.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.0.9 import Window Doesn't Show Folders On Desktop

Jun 25, 2014

I have a number of folders on my desktop that contain movie files, jpeg files, you name it. When I try to import from the desktop, the import media window only shows the files and not the folders they are in! I have included a screen shot of what my window looks like when I select the desktop to import media. Again, I have a number of folders that don't show up, only the files in them. This is maddening when trying to import files! I know i can move the files to my hard drive but i am used to desktop work flow.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: See Number Of Items In A Folder Shown In Finder?

Jun 29, 2012

Is there a way to see the number of items in a folder shown in finder?

Seems to me that in earlier versions, if you had a folder with 100 items (e.g., photos) in a folder in a finder window, when you clicked on the folder, something like "100 Items" would appear at the bottom of the finder window.† I don't see this now in Lion.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Lost Hard Drive Space

Mar 19, 2012

I previously had a Windows 7 Boot Camp partition of roughly 50GB on my 256GB MacBook Air. I removed this partition after Wind'ohs driving me crazy after a while. However, now my Mac partition is only 200GB, and I'm not able to increase its size. Also, my Recovery HD shows up in permanently in Finder and Disk Utility.I now need to (sadly...) reinstall Windows, but Boot Camp won't partition my drive, giving me the error: "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition". What's going on with my partitions? The Recovery HD seems to be causing the problem, but I don't understand why I can't use the 50GB of space that is empty.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Freeing Up Hard Drive Space

Jun 30, 2012

I am giving my son my old macbook air, and wanted to free up as much hard drive space as possible.  I deleted my user account, and I expected there to be about 225 GB of free space.  There is not, however.  When I check the storage, it says there is nearly 78 GB of "Backups."  My question is whether that backup is from my old account, and ultimately, where can I find this to delete it to free up the space. 

I also have another macbook air that I plan to sell.  What is the best way to erase the contents of the computer without deleting the OS. I plan to sell it, and obviously don't want the next purchaser to have access to my old data.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Missing Hard Drive Space: >600GB?

Mar 20, 2012

I have a mid 2011 21.5" 2.7 GHZ I5 IMac with a 1 TB HDD.  It is reporting that the startup disk is full (<8gb left). I have surveyed the hard drive and found the "users" folder is using 972GB.The sole "user" folder (me) is using 972 GB An exploration and sum of "folder size" of each of the underlying folders (there are 8: Audio books, Desktop, Documents, Download, Movies, Music, Picture and Public) collectively sums to 316,6GB.  The system tool in "about the iMac" (storage tab) shows "other" allocated a 893,97GB. Where is the missing 640GB plus of space?  Please can anyone advise me how to identify where space has been allocated and how to rectify the problem?  

I have done the following: All updates are installedVerified the partition - no faultsTimemachine - never been activatedre-indexed spotlight as suggested in a support article.deleted a dormant user (6GB) and deleted their dataI have emptied the trash. What else can i do?
