OS X :: Wants To Leave Stuff On To Upload Or Download Stuff?

Mar 4, 2009

Is it bad for Macs to leave them on a long time when you're not using it?

My nephew once told me he puts his PC off when he goes to school for example, because it would be better for his pc.

Does this count for...
- My PowerBook, running on cable (not battery, whatever)?
- My (to buy) 24'' iMac?

Reason is I sometimes want to leave my stuff on to upload or download stuff...

OS X :: Transferring Stuff From Old Mac To New Mac

Oct 27, 2009

i finally did it and bought a new MBP...now is there an easy way to transfer my itunes, photos and movies to the new computer? The guy at the store sold me a firewire cable with an adapter so my old Mac (the "pixar" iMac from about 7 to 8 years ago) with its 400 firewire speed could then be connected to the MBP...but I am scared... I would like to keep everything on the old machine for now and just copy them over...

OS X :: Login And All Stuff Gone

Apr 27, 2010

I ran into a huge problem today, it seems, and I'm hoping someone here can offer some help. Just for starters, I have a 13" MBP with Snow Leopard. So I tried logging onto my account just now, but accidentally clicked the guest one. In order to somehow undo that, I stupidly hit esc and then command+z repeatedly a few times. It brought me back to the login page, where I logged into my account, but when I did ALL OF MY STUFF was gone--files, pictures, music, folders, documents, etc.--and it was back to all the default settings. I looked through all the folders and everything is GONE. I tried restarting with no luck. I logged into the guest account too and that's also default (as per usual though). Does anyone have any idea how I managed this? Is there a way to fix it and get my stuff back? I'm freaking out because everything I ever needed is (was?) on my mac.

OS X :: Unload Unnecessary Stuff

Sep 4, 2009

I am still using Tiger. Down to about 15% (17 of 104GB) free space on hard drive and looking to unload unnecessary stuff. /Library/Printers (3GB): I assume I can safely get rid of everything related to printers I do not use.... /Library/Audio/Apple Loops (3GB): of stuff for GarageBand and iLife, which I never use... /Library/Application Support: another 3GB of stuff for GarageBand and iLife... (in fact, can I simply Spotlight for GarageBand and iLife and remove almost everything associated?) Any reasons I should not delete the above? Anything else I should consider deleting? (The big hog is Parallels, but I use that daily). I have pared Documents to the essentials.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Turn On - Get Stuff Off?

Dec 27, 2010

My 2007 MBP won't boot up, or at least the screen won't turn on. The genius diagnosed it as an issue with the logic board. I'm not quite two months out of warranty, so it's $310 to fix -- but I spilled water on it three years ago, and if damage is detected, my repair options start to get pretty pricey. I'm now the proud owner of the base-model 13" MBP, which is great, though it hasn't been 24 hours yet. I'm still planning to send the old MBP out to attempt the $310 repair, and we'll keep it as a backup if they'll fix it. However, I'd really like to get my data off the hard drive before I ship it out. I keep hoping it will magically boot up -- it's come back to life a couple of times since I started having this problem -- but I can't expect it to.

What is the easiest way to get my info off the hard drive so I can load everything onto my new MBP? I don't want to do anything more that would give Apple reason to say they can't do the repair. I know I should've backed up, but I didn't, and I can assure you I've learned my lesson ... the hard way.

Applications :: Put Stuff On Macbook

Mar 26, 2009

I've not yet decided on iWork or Office Mac... is iWork now fully compatible with Office? If it is I'm gonna download the trial version ASAP. But beyond that what else should I be looking for? My brain has gone dead after all the file transfers, so I've literally just installed MSN Messenger, Football Manager and VLC player + codecs. Do I need any antivirus software as well?

MacBook :: Transfer All Stuff From Old Hd To New One?

Apr 27, 2009

i have a macbook 2.0 unibody. i just bought 500Gb internal hard drive and i want to replace the stock 160Gb with it. how do i move all my stuff from my old drive to the new one? i don't have the cash to buy an external hard drive just so i can move my stuff back and forth, i will have no need for an external right now since i have a 500Gb internal. someone told me to get an HDD caddy and use the stock drive as an external. what i am wondering is, will i be able to transfer all my applications without having the install files (i deleted all my install files as soon as i installed them). is it going to be a simple "drag and drop" kind of deal and every file knows exactly where to go? i just don't know what complications might come about.

OS X :: Possible To Migrate Selective Stuff From Old HD?

Apr 11, 2010

I recently purchased a new HD for my Macbook and installed it, along with a clean install of the OS. I put my old HD into an external enclosure and can connect it via USB. Is it possible to selectively migrate certain information from my old HD to the new? Let me be more specific here, I only want to migrate my Safari, Firefox, Mail, Stickies, iCal, iTunes, Adium, and MS Office settings, that's it, nothing else. Is this possible via Migration assistant? Do I have to use a 3rd party app? Is it possible at all?

OS X :: Transferring Windows Stuff To Mac

May 8, 2010

I am planning on getting a Mac in a few weeks time as I am going to sell my old windows 7 PC and then install Windows 7 again on my mac via bootcamp. Obviously when i get my mac i can easily transfer all my files onto it but I would loose all my programs. My question is if I was to create an image file of the hard drive on my windows PC could i then use that and Restore it on my Mac, obviously in a separate partition? I have already found a program that i believe will be able to restore my Windows image file in that separate partition, which is winclone:


I just wanted to know if my theory would actually work. Should I have any problems? I will also be using Macrium Reflect to make the image file: [URL] Also I am planning to get a macbook pro 13"

OS X :: Transferring Stuff From G5 To I7 Imac

Aug 21, 2010

my old g5 1.6ghz bit the dust and I was finally able to upgrade. The only stuff I really want to save is the itunes music I have on there. The question is, how do I get it over? The g5 is running 10.2.8. Feasibly couldn't I just transfer all the music onto a flash drive and put it on the imac that way? Oh one more things, I don't have a monitor for the g5 tower... could I use the imacs screen for my g5? And yeah how would I do that.

OS X :: Menu Bar Basically Crammed With Stuff

Oct 3, 2010

First off, I have a 13 inch MacBook Pro and the resolution is set to the highest it can go, 1280 x 800. My Menu Bar is basically crammed with stuff. Starting from the top right I have Spotlight, the date/time, airport, the bluetooth icon, the volume icon, Time Machine and from there I have 3rd party applications. These include a battery monitor, CPU monitor, memory monitor, network monitor, fan speed and temperature monitor, disk activity monitor, Caffeine, and the Dropbox icon. When I'm in Finder, Safari and many other applications, the menu items for that application can fit fine. But when I'm in iTunes my last menu icon, Dropbox, disappears. When I'm in Amadeous Pro (audio editing) Dropbox, Caffeine, disk activity monitor, and fan speed and temperature monitor disappears.

OS X :: Spotlight Doesn't Find Stuff - How To Know About It

Mar 28, 2008

I recently lost some bookmarks in firefox. I know these are stored somewhere with the filename bookmarks.html so I searched with spotlight to locate it

It brings up no results - I have 2 HD's but have it set on 'search my mac' which is both of them.

I can locate the file myself through users>library>application support etc but is there a reason spotlight can't find it? I have my preferences set to show everything.

OS X :: Desktop Rotated And Lost All My Stuff?

Dec 26, 2008

Something very weird happened to me today. I was using my computer, I typed in a search and hit go and the screen rotated out of the way like a cube transition in a photo app. The new screen was blue and I thought I had pushed a f button I was unaware of. Anyway I pushed all the buttons on top to no avail. The only way I could get my computer off and restarted was the on button on back. When it re-booted back all my personal documents seem to be missing, the dock was missing all but the stock apps and when I tried to open iphoto or mail, all the files were missing.

I rebooted from the OS X startup disc and ran a repair, it said the disc was fine. I repaired all the permissions, to no avail. I even ran tech tool pro and it says all was fine. After hours of pain I ended up restoring the drive using time machine. Now I lost all my photos from Christmas....

Ha anyone seen anything like this and what is the rotating desktop?

OS X :: How To Receive Stuff Into Current Drop Box

Jun 4, 2009

When I got my new Mac Pro I transferred all my info/settings from my old mac via firewire during the initial bootup. The new Mac then gave me 2 admin accounts which is a real pain. The main account which I never use is totally redundant but obviously I cant get rid of it. The other account which has all my migrated info on it is the one I use. Anyway, when someone on my home network puts something in my drop box/public folder I can never get it. It always goes into the drop box of the account that I don't use. I have to log off and them log into the other account to see the files but then cant copy them into the other one. I tried turning off file sharing in the redundant account but it changes settings in both of them. How can I receive things into the drop box of the one I am using? Surely they are set individually?
