Why Does Mac OX 10.6.8 Keep Making Copies Of File Anytime Download / Copy / Move File

Feb 25, 2012

Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.

OS X :: File Permission Of "-rwxr-xr-x" Making Application Impossible To Read The File?

Dec 30, 2009

The first batch of videos was copied to an external drive from a Windows PC with MacDrive installed. When I came back to my Mac, I plugged the external drive into my Mac and moved those files to my hard drive.The second batch was copied using Connect to Server command right from my Mac.The funny thing is Final Cut Pro cannot recognize the first batch of videos.So I took a look at the file permissions using Terminal. All of the videos in the first batch have a file permission of -rwxr-xr-x@ but the others have -rwxr-xr-x. I tried to do a chmod 755 on every video file, but the @ sign still wouldn't go away.

OS X Technologies :: Run Multiple Copies Of Skype By Launching The .app File

May 8, 2012

I figured out how to run multiple copies of skype by launching the .app file from different osx user accounts in terminal.  What I'm trying to do now is script this or automate opening terminal and typing the line with automator.  The following is the line that I use. 

su user2 -c "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype && exit" 

And I just change user2 to user3 for a third instance of skype and so on. how ot automate this process?

OS X :: Hiding File Inside Image File / Unable To Access Hidden File?

Mar 24, 2008

I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg hidden.rtf.zip > picture2.jpg

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

Applications :: Making DVD - File Too Big (Encoder Settings)

Jan 28, 2009

I'm trying to make some DVDs using iDVD. I want to play The Dark Knight and Benders Big Game at other locations. Anyways, I'm trying to make separate discs, not one disc for both movies. When I try to drag the file to iDVD, it says that the file is too big and to play with encoder settings. The encoder settings are already at best performance. In Finder, the file is 808MB, yet iDVD claims it is 8.08GB. I know for a fact that the file is 808mb, not 8.08GB. The file was .avi, so I converted it to .divx, and this still didn't fix it. I also tried the other movie which is .mp4, and I had the same problem.

OS X :: Finder Won't Copy A Certain File?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm in the midst of backing up an external drive (to another external drive) via Firewire 800, which works fine, but for some strange reason one specific file won't be copied. It's an iDVD file with a filesize of 12.98 GB. All other files have been copied without any problems.

When copying over to the backup drive all seems fine for a while, then (after having copied 4.01 GB) I hear some "clunking" sounds from the source drive followed by the error message shown below. I've tried copying the said file several times and to different backup drives, and in all instances the file copying stops at 4.01 GB.

I've checked both drives with Disk utility and they check out fine. And the iDVD file opens fine in iDVD.
Could it be that MacOSX needs some free "work space" on one or several of the drives in question, which isn't available?

Cureently, the source drive has only 10.63 GB free space, the destination drive has 582 GB available and the computer's (1.67GHz Powerbook G4) internal 80 GB drive has 23 GB free space.

OS X :: Cannot Copy From One HD To Another - Same File Names

Dec 27, 2009

I'm having an issue copying from one external to another (I just recently got 1TB for x-mas). Both of the drives are western digitals, so they're very good. The problem I'm having is every time it gets to my iTunes music, I get this error:
You can't copy some of these items because their names are the same as other items on the destination volume, and that volume doesn't distinguish between upper - and lowercase letters in filenames.

Software :: Cannot Move File To The Trash

Feb 4, 2009

I have a new MAC with Leopard 10.5. I attached a western digital external disk which has 4 partions. In one of the partitions I copied from my MS PC various documents. I now want to delete them by sending them to the trash. when i move them there, nothing happens as they still remain on the disk. All docs are with the read/write permission. I'm the only user and the docs were placed there with the same user profile that now wants to get rid of them. I also downloaded the TRASHiT software, but the files and folder still do not get moved/killed. What else can I do? I would like to avoid the easy way out which I would presume would be to format the disk again...

OS X :: Why Can Trash, Rename Or Move An Open File In Os

Apr 14, 2010

you can rename, move or even trash a file when you still have it opened in preview or textedit.In win, such action will be stopped by the message "can't do that, the file is open somewhere". Would that data going to be kind of homeless or become a "ghost"?
