ITunes Mac :: Moving The Application Support/Mobile Sync Directory?
Switching my boot drive to be an SSD on my Mac Pro. To do that I need to reduce the space I'm using on my boot drive. Plus I want to eliminate unnecessary files and I/O. So the Application Support/MobileSync directory has come to my attention. It is the backup directory for my ipad/iphones. I'd like that to be on a separate hard drive. I tried to move it and leave behind an alias pointing to the new location, but when I sync an iphone now I get the "iTunes could not back up iphone because an error occurred". Has anyone tried to move this dir and succeeded?

OS X Leopard :: Master Password Won't Reset User Password
I'm locked out of my Macbook. I changed my user's password, then when I tried to log back into OSX it didn't recognise my new password. I tried my old password + some variations of the new password (incase I typo'd) by no luck. I know my master password, which the login prompt asks for after a few failed attempts so I can reset my user password. When I type in the master password it takes me to a screen getting me to reset my user password. So I type a new password, verify it in the second field, and click Log In. but the box shakes and I still can't get in. The new passwords definitely match, I've even tried really simple ones so there can be no error.

Mac Pro :: Reset The Password Without Knowing The Original Password?
My mother recently passed away and I've inherited her Mac Pro. She was the official "administrator" and no one knows her password. Is there any way to reset the password without knowing the original password? Or, is there a way to reset the whole laptop to factory settings? I'm not concerned about losing content from the laptop.

Applications :: Can Password Protect An IWeb Page Or A Mobile Me Gallery
I don't want just anyone to have immediate access to my gallery via my iWeb site. Ideally I'd like my entire Mobile Me gallery to be password protected. I had a look at password protecting individual albums but that's just a horrible implementation, each album just comes up as a grey thumbnail in the albums view even if you enter login details. I thought an alternative (although far less secure) would be to have the link to the mobile me gallery on a password protected iWeb page as part of my iWeb site but I can't find any options to let me password protect just one page.

Am I right in assuming that Web Gallery only supports password protecting of individual items whereas Apple have gone the opposite route with iWeb where you can only password protect your entire site? If that's the case then it seems like they're really trying to make things hard for us!

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Password Changed And Mobile Home User Vanished
I have Mac OS X 10.5.8 Server, and have just set it to tell the user to change her password on next log in, which she did, but on next login the window rejected the new password (and the old one). Tried to reset the password in WGM but it still kept refusing to log in, so I just logged into her laptop as admin, and looked at Sys Prefs > Accounts and her user had vanished! the home folder is still in the Users folder so I assume everything is still there, but I can't re add her user account because it says the name is already in use, What can I do? The account is a Mobile home account.

He deleted my user and saved my files on his side.

OS X :: Reset Administrator Password - Root Changes
I just bought a used Emac running 10.3.9. The previous owner does not remember the administrator password nor did I realize how important it is to have. I have the original install discs and did boot using the disc. I then went under the install menu and chose reset password. I changed the user password but have been unsuccessful at changing the admin password. The drop down menu in password reset gave me the option of Administrator (root), Application, or finally user. I have read a couple of articles cautioning not to change or work with root changes.

OS X :: How To Access Computer To Reset Password
I got this Mac pro with osx. It's a old business computer, so I don't have the login password for the user or administrator. I had this installation CD, and it worked fine when I tried holding "c" down while restarting the computer. But I couldn't fix the problem at the moment so I turned it of again. Now it won't start up as usual with the "Choose language menu" so I can't get access to the computer. I really don't know why it does it, and I'm so lost right now. How do I get access to the computer now, and reset the computer and password?

OS X :: Login Keychain Password Reset?
How do I reset my "login" keychain password? I can't remember it. If it needs deleting, I don't have many passwords stored in that since I use Firefox most of the time and it doesn't store passwords in the keychain.

But when I use Safari it keeps asking for my login keychain password repeatedly.

OS X :: Reset Password - Neither Current Nor Old One Accepted
Gave my old G4 iBook, running Tiger, to a friend. Situation is:

1) She brings the iBook over, saying she can't install a new driver because it's stopped recognizing the password.

2) I confirmed this, and using the install disk, I successfully re-set the password for that machine's one and only account.

3) Now she says that the machine asks for her keychain password "every time I try to do anything, in any application" - and she says that neither the current password, nor the old one is accepted.

I've read similar threads, and I know I have to re-set one or more keychains. Which one(s)? How can I do this?

OS X :: Can't Reset Password For BIOS
I just recently got an iBook G3. I found it in my towns recycling center and brought it home. The user on it does not have admin privileges. Seeing how it's old and is running 10.2 I was just going to install some sort of Linux on it. I went to go boot into a CD and it came up with a grey screen with a password prompt? I don't have the password. Does the same thing if I try to boot into single user mode.

MacBook :: Password Lost - How To Reset
I have brought Macbook A1181 from ebay it works fine but there were two accounts but I don't know the password and when I try to get back to the ebay seller he is closed he is account. Also I have read the Mac website that I need to use the Code: If you don't remember the password and automatic login is turned off, you can reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X User Install disc. Because a user with the Mac OS X install disc can gain unrestricted access to your computer, you should keep the disc in a safe place. To reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X disc:

1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc and restart the computer.
2. When you hear the startup tone, hold down the C key until you see the spinning gear.
3. When the Installer appears, choose Utilities > Reset Password.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions to change the password.
5. Quit the Installer and restart your computer while holding down the mouse button to eject the disc.
But didn't received any CDs from him so I don't know what version of CD I need it also I am new to macbook so its fully confusing please somebody help me how to reset my password.

Software :: Need To Reset Master Password
I recently purchased a used imac g4 from a friend but I cannot seem to get it started. I tried to log in with the master password but do not have the password or install disk for OSX. I asked my friend about it and he said the same thing, he lost the user and master password including install disk. I took the comp from his hands anyway, it's in new condition and he never really used it, just forgot about it I suppose.

It also seems that on startup the mac searches for disks and servers, so it could of been a part of a network system? I would like to know if there is a way to get into the bios and reset the whole system without password prompts and all that. Which is the best way to do this? I have the mac osx install disk from my ibook but I tried to boot the disk and it's not booting. I also have the install disk for os tiger and that's not booting either. There must be a super secure lock on the system.

Software :: How To Reset Password Of Admin
Problem arose when backing up hard drive in process of upgrading current 80 gb drive for 250gb drive. Put new 250gb in usb caddy to copy/clone old drive but wouldn�t mount on my powerbook. It did however mount on my G4 tower! Booted powerbook in firewire mode and picked it up on G4 tower. Used disk utility disc restore to put the old powerbook hard drive onto the new one in the usb caddy. This copied over but then when I restarted the powerbook it asked me to log on as user which it never used to do. As it didn�t accept the password I reset the password using the install disc.
