Since the last upgrade I seem to have a problem changing the download location.†Safari seems not to accept locations outside the home folder even with the same permissions (drwx------) and no log entries are generated. I've also tried 0777 with no success. Also, I've tried to create links to the external directory but it still defaults back to the home directory. I had some success with Automator - Finder move - but it gives me a 'disk full' error when downloading.
I have a mass amount of files to download listed on a Web page.¬† When I click the link, the file downloads, but the link on my downloads page never changes colors to note that the link has been visited.¬† ¬†
I recently downloaded Get Tube and would like to be able to have a song in mp3 format off You Tube. The problem I am having is finding where the song goes after I download it off Get Tube. I went into preferences and selected the song to go into my users/name/downloads but when I look in there after the song is done, it is not there. In fact, it is no place to be found. Anyone know why I might be having this problem?
I have 2 x 1TB WD External Hard drives which hold all my audio/video content. One of these is full and this is the one that is located in the iTunes Music Folder Location. If I change this path to a path on the other drive which has space, is it going to mess up what I already have in my tunes library? I have keep iTunes organised and copy to iTunes music folder both unticked.
He "opened" a word document from yahoo email, saved it, but can't find it again.
I suspect the person saved the document in the temporary download folder, but can't find the path to it (found the hidden cache folder but that wasn't it). Anyone got any clue on where the document could be found?
Pretty new to Apple products. I'm attempting to use an external monitor that is located above and behind my laptop. However, I can't find a way to set Snow Leopard to let me move the mouse from the primary laptop display upward into the auxiliary display.
Currently, I need to roll the mouse off the right edge of the laptop display to reach the left edge of the external display. Very counterintuitive.
I just bought an external HD for my Mac Mini as my media plus downloads were filling up my internal HD. Is the location of the Downloads Folder (and Movies) something that can be configured somewhere? I still want it to show up in my home folder. Is it as easy as deleting the old one and creating an alias for a Downloads folder located on my external HD?
I want to take a screenshot, (using the standard shortcuts, command shift 3) which saves it to desktop. Don't ask why, but I want to save it to a folder, elsewhere on the hard drive and I have a lot of shots to take and don't want to keep selecting/moving, etc. Any way to change the default save location? By the way, running Tiger, 10.4.11 on a MacBook.
Looks like in syncing my iPad, it tries to place the backup of my device in MobileSyncBackup on my C boot drive, which is an SSD without space, even when my iTunes install and iTunes library folder is in my 2 TB D drive.
Is there any way to permanently make iTunes place its backup elsewhere?
Using my Win7 x64 machine, I transfered all of my songs to an external drive and then changed the default location of the iTunes Media Folder. However, if I disconnect the drive and then open iTunes it reverts back to the default path (%user%/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media). Is there any way to force iTunes to not change the folder location?
Finally I can reproduce the freezing of my macbook air. If I change from wifi location for example i go to work from home the following happens:¬†the MBA will not fall a sleep resulting in a very hot MBA in my bag.the MBA will fall a sleep but it is not possible to wake it up againthe MBA will fall a sleep and is able to wake up again after opening the lid but now it will freeze the entire mac within 5-10 minutes.¬†
I have to push the power button for a long time in either cases.¬†
I just did a complete restore so i have no extra software installed.¬†
On Windows it's possible to change where the Music, Pictures etc folders are located. I've tried doing this to the folders on my Mac (Music, Pictures etc) and I can't find anything! I've checked on Google.
I wonder if someone come along some software for Mac which change IP country address. Similar to [URL]. I searched through Firefox add-on's but nothing there. Also I am fed up to manually search and change proxy. There are some paid services but that is limited by download cap etc.
in my itunes file in Windows directory, there is a compilations file. this file has albums in it that should not be there, but with other albums by the same bands. i have tried relocating the albums, but then itunes cannot play them, and when i locate the file it is automatically placed in a new compilations folder.
in short i am asking how i can change the location of a file in the itunes library. Any ideas?
IMAGINE I have 2 hard disk partitions on the SAME hard disk, one is called 'Macintosh HD' and the other is called 'My Data'.
The Plan: In the 'Macintosh HD', there are (1) system files & (2) users' settings. In the 'My Data', there are all the music, pictures, etc.
For example, the 'Macintosh HD' has 40GB and the 'My Data' has 120GB. All I want to do is to separate the SYSTEM and my DATA without migrating my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' which contains folders called 'Music', 'Pictures'... to the partition 'My Data'.
I want to separate the system files and my data incase I need to reinstall the Mac OS X while leaving all my data untouched.
So the way I should do (I guess) is to leave my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' empty, and create files called, for example, 'My Music', 'My Pictures', etc. in the 'My Data' partition. Then redirect the files 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' to 'My Music', 'My Pictures', etc. in the 'My Data' partition.
In Windows XP or Windows 7, you can redirect those as using the methods below: (1)[URL] But I just don't know how to do that in Mac OS X, it seems that Mac OS X doesn't even provide a way for users to do so: [URL]
I saw a reply in macrumors forum and tried to move the 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. folders, but it turned out that those files were being copied, not moved. So I can't move the 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. to the partition 'My Data' and make aliases of them which can be put in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD'.
So, are there only 3 options for me too choose? (1) stop trying to fight Apple and Mac OS X on where it puts things, just put all the things in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD', using only 1 partition (2) move my home folder to the other disk partition, in this case, the partition 'My Data' (3) can't redirect the location of Music', 'Pictures', etc. folders in my home folder in the 'Macintosh HD', but just simply put things in the 'My Data'.
I seem to have a problem with my ethernet port not working after a specific location change...I have three locations I used frequently. Let's call them:¬†
2) WorkWireless (used when I'm in meetings)
3) WorkEthernet (used when I'm at my desk)¬†
My general practice is to change locations just before putting my MacBook Pro to sleep, and then it is happily ready for the desired network when it is awoken.I'm not sure what this change in behavior coincided with, but as of ~1 month ago, I am finding that going from WorkWireless to WorkEthernet, my ethernet port appears to be completely dead and I have to reboot the computer to reactivate it (yes, I've checked the cable itself and the wall port at they're OK). I've tried a couple ways of disabling & re-enabling it in software, but I don't get the impression anything actually resets this interface - suggestions are welcome as perhaps I just didn't try the right thing. I couldn't find anything quite the same as "networksetup -setairportpower" for the ethernet port.Oddly, this is not an issue with going from HomeWireless to WorkEthernet. Both HomeWirelss and WorkWireless have the ethernet interface deactivated in the Network pref pane, and perhaps the only notable difference between HomeWirelss and WorkWireless is that I use a static IP on the former and dynamic on the latter.
