Snow Leopard :: How Long To Create Disk Image


I'm trying to create a largish one (4.6GB). It's been "creating" for an hour now and the progress bar hasn't moved beyond about a tenth of the way. I seem to remember it taking a while in the past (maybe 10 minutes), but never this long.

OS X Leopard :: Can't Create Encrypted Disk Image
With Leopard, I have repeatedly followed the instructions for using Disk Utility to make an encrypted disk. All appears to go well...all fields appropriately filled, including 128 encryption. But when I hit create, either nothing happens, or I get a second Disk Utility starting window. In any case, I am not asked to create a password, and am unable to find any trace of the disk I thought I'd just created.

OS X Leopard :: Trying To Create Backup Of BootCamp With New Disk Image
I am trying to automate backing up my bootcamp partition. I thought automator might do it. I have it done but I have 2 problems.

1) It prompts me for my password before it starts. Other folders don't ask me, how can I stop automator asking me when it is making disk image from bootcamp?
2) I get an error message Error code 28. I have run this twice and get the same error message, same place each time.

OS X Leopard :: What Partitions Type Should Use When Create An Image In Disk Utility
I have a Sony HDR-SR1 camcorder and have been creating images in Disk Utility to dump copies of my camcorders hard drive to. That way I can mount the disk image and import into iMovie just as if the camera was plugged in. These are the options I've been using:

Volume Size: varies
Volume Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
Encryption: none
Partitions: Single partition - Apple Partition Map (the default I believe)
Image Format: read/write disk image

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a disk image of the boot drive? I have tried / boot from DVD, then go to Disk Utility, file/ create new image from disk but the process stops imediatlly with a. cant unmount drive, b. drive is busy, c. in use how the drive is in use is not sensable, as it should  be as 'just a drive' This is on a laptop with OSX 10.5.8 / 32gig hd, 2 gig ram, just in case it matters. I thought about timemachine, but the laptop sometimes requires a complete reinstall, that is a long process, install + upgrade + redo all the other programs +

OS X Leopard :: Disc Utility Fatal Hardware Error / Unable To Create Disk Image
Today I plugged the MacBook Air SuperDrive into my MBA, inserted a DVD, and launched Disk Utility to create a disc image from the data on the drive. I noticed that my internal hard drive was showing in red type in the list of discs, and I clicked on it to reveal "This drive has reported a fatal hardware error to Disk Utility. If the drive has not failed completely, back up as much data as you can and then replace it with a working drive."

My computer is a Rev A MacBook Air with an 80 GB hard drive (not the 64 GB Flash Drive). While it may have been a bit slow recently, I attributed that to bad file management... large files, lack of email inbox management, etc... and lack of restarts (I almost never restart). I immediate made sure my Time Machine backup was up-to-date, then initiated a clone so I can boot from an external drive. I suppose I need to have the MBA repaired but I was wondering if anyone has noticed that Disk Utility reports false positives in this manner, or if anyone has experienced this message when the real problem was something other than a hardware failure?

I have used disk utilities to copy and burn dvds (not copywritten) several times. Now when I try to create a new disk image file I get a window that says "Your startup disk is almost full.

Question: I selected the disk image and deleted it. A password was not necessary...is this true? Can anyone just delete the disk image without entering a password?

Intel Mac :: Disk Utility Can't Repair HD - Possible To Create New Image To Backup?
Two days ago my computer died and I haven't been able to get past the Apple screen since. I've tried starting in Safe mode, etc. that did not work. I just started up using my installation disk and got into Disk Utility. It says it cannot repair the disk and that I should back up as many files as possible and reformat the disk. How am I supposed to back up if I can't start up? I am currently creating a new image of the HD to an external drive but my question is if Disk Utility couldn't repair the disk, with the external drive copy also be problematic? How can I tell before I reformat the whole thing and start over?

Snow Leopard :: Using New Image In Disk Utility?
Maybe I don't get how this works. I used an external USB drive to back up my MacBook Pro, making an image un=sing Disk Utility "New Image." This seems to have worked fine. When I attach the external drive and double click on the DMG file it open and I seem to have access to all contents. Today I tried to make a second "New Image" on the same drive of my iMac24" and everything runs and makes a DMG file, but when I click on this one I get a msg saying the disk image "couldn't be opened" with the reason given being "no mountable file systems." Does this make perfect sense to somebody? Have I completely misunderstood the use and practice of the "new image" in Disk Utility?

Snow Leopard :: Any Way To Create Boot Disk For MBP

Snow Leopard :: Mounting Disk Image Crashes Some Process
I downloaded the new version of EazyDraw (3.4.1), tried to load it and couldn't. In fact, it crashed some system process (or several?). I rebooted, and the same thing happened. I open the dmg, it brings up the license agreement, I accept, the disk loads, the finder window opens, and then nothing. It seems to corrupt some process, but I can't tell what. No new applications will open, I can't switch between applications (I can click on the windows and bring them to the front, but the menu bar still shows the previous app & expose thinks I'm still in the previous app too; command-tab won't switch either). On screen buttons still work, but keyboard inputs don’t seem to. For example, I can click on the main mail window, then click on new message (but not command-n), but then I can't type in any text.

Another strange thing is the system won't switch applications, for example I clicked on the contact support button on your website, and it did nothing; the system wouldn't switch to mail. After rebooting, the button worked as expected. I have tried verifying the disk image with disk utility; it checks out ok. I have tried loading the disk image with the activity monitor open, but I can't tell what is going wrong. I think some process closes, but I'm not sure what, and no crash report comes up. After trying a bunch of things, the finder sometimes crashes (sometimes I give up & hard reboot first). In all cases so far, I've been unable to shutdown from the menu, and been forced to shutdown by holding the power button until it shuts down. Reboots are normal. Other disk images don't cause this behavior.

Snow Leopard :: Secure Disk Image (DMG) Appears To Be Empty
I have a 10 MB encrypted disk image (dmg file) on my desktop which I use to store sensitive data. I created it a long time ago using Disk Utility. I don't use it very often but today I wanted to add a new file and was surprised to find that the content is no longer visible. It asks for the password, I enter it, and it opens a window but it doesn't show any files.

Although at the same time it reports that only 1.8 MB out of the 10 MB are available. I accessed it via a shell (Terminal) and I can't see any file either. I have many backups for that disk image form up to about a year ago but all I checked have the same problem. They open fine but show no content. This makes me believe that rather than the image being corrupt something must have changed in the decryption algorithm. But what can I do to get my data back?

Snow Leopard :: Correct Process For Creating A CD Image File (.iso) Using Disk Utility?
What is the correct process for creating a CD image file (.iso) using Disk Utility?

I would like to make an image of one CD in order to use it in a virtual OS environment as opposed to having to dig it out and put the disk in the drive each time I need to run the software.

I can see how to create an image file but I must be missing a step. I don't anticipate having to create more than just this one file so I can't justify buying CD burning software...

OS X V10.4 :: Hdiutil Create Srcdevice Fails To Create Image
I want to create a disk image of a Mac drive (.dmg file).I figured that it might not be a good idea to try and image a live disk, so I unmounted it (the user dragged the disk icon to the eject icon), and I confirmed it was unmounted by looking at /Volumes. To be clear here, this isn't the boot volume, that is /dev/disk0./dev/disk1 is an internal drive - as it happens it's the original drive for this OSX 10.4 G5, AND /Volumes/HITACHI is the mount point for an external USB drive.I have tried this twice.On both occassions, things seemed to go well, but after a few minutes (about 10 - 20 minutes), I observed that the target file on /Volumes/HITACHI stopped growing, then a bunch of unpleasant stuff started to happen:

* I did lsof /Volumes/HITACHI/MacHD_20120201.dmg and found the PID of the diskimage binary, ps waux showed it was doing nothing (CPU% was 0.0). This indicates a stuck process to me.

* The hdutil command stopped producing '.'

* I could not cancel the hduitl command

* I could not rm the MacHD_20120201.dmg file

* I could not ls the /Volumes/HITACHI directory

* unlink also hung

A little further into this, the Mac became unresponsive. I observed that the disk was now mounted again (grrr!). As a work around I switched the USB drive off and on, and Mac came good - all my terminals started to respond, the GUI responded for the user.My workaround has been to use CCC to make a clone of the disk - but I don't like this because I think .dmg files are much more convenient (for a start, now that I've used CCC I can't use the USB drive for anything else).

* Is my methodology wrong? Do I really need to umount the /dev/disk1

* Can you disable finder from automounting an internal hard drive (I am particularly interested in this)

OS X Leopard :: Hard Disk Full Ran Disk Inventory X - Sleep Image?
So my Mac HD is full because I partitioned some of it for Window XP through boot camp, and the Mac OS X side is full. Two questions remain...can I decrease the partition size of Windows without erasing the partition or risking anything. But my main concern and question is what the heck is sleep image (macintosh hd/private/var/vm) and why it is 2.0 GB?!? Then theres another file called 2009.07.24.asl ((macintosh hd/private/var/asl) and this is 1.4 GB. What are the reasons for these files, and do I need them? I want to free up some space.

OS X Leopard :: Disk Utility Won't Burn Disk Image?
Open Disk Utility and select Open Disk Image, choose my Dmg file and press Burn. the resulting screen has the speed options greyed out so I'm unable to change anything there, but when I hit burn anyway I hear my Superdrive start but then stop. The Disk Utility Progress bar shows an unusually short burn time and an unusually long "Finishing burn" time after which an error message is displayed.

Similar reaction with same result happens when attempts are made to burn the dmg image in Toast 10.
No other known problems with my Superdrive.

The dmg is 7GB and I'm using 8.5GB discs.

What is wrong? Why cant I burn Dmgs?
