ITunes :: Permanently Delete Apps From The Screen When Plugin To Ipod?
Mar 14, 2012
When I sync my ipod, it will sync and everything. My problem is, is I have old apps that I don't use still on my itunes. It's not syncing to my ipod because they are not checked but they are still on my app summary screen. How do I get rid of them?
I've downloaded 100 Apps since getting my iPhone.†Of which, only 70 I've enabled to be sync'd to my iPhone. If updates are available for the other 30, iTunes downloads them even though I am not sync'ing them to my iPhone. Is there a way to permanently delete these unwanted Apps from my iTunes so that I am not spending time getting updates to Apps I am no longer intersted in?†
I am in some sort of weird loop and cannot actually delete songs I purchased from the iTunes store.¬†
1. I purchased the song on my iPhone
2. It automatically got downloaded to my iTunes on my Mac
3. I decided I don't want the song - I hit delete - it asks me to confirm if I want to delete from iCloud as well - I say yes - it asks me if I want to move the file to the trash - I say yes - and it temporarily disappears
4. Next time I sync my phone, it shows up again. No way to delete it directly from phone.¬†
What's strange is shouldn't it delete it on my phone since I'm deleting it from iTunes before I sync?†
I am scared to buy new songs now as I don't want to be stuck with them forever in case I don't like them..
My son's iPod Touch is associated with iTunes on a computer other than mine which isn't with us at the moment.¬† He has no music on it at the moment - just apps.¬† Is it possible for me to add some songs to it from my iTunes without erasing the apps that he currenly has on it?¬† Or will adding the songs wipe the content of the device off.¬†
How can I delete Apps and iBooks from iTunes so that do not constantly re-sync with iPad or iPhone even though I specifically un-check them NOT to sync?¬† I have to go thru this every time!¬† I don't even want them any longer on iTunes (or iPad) but I can't find a way to remove them from iTunes! Apple used to be so easy and intuitive but now so much is hidden/fixed).

I'm a recent mac converter. Hope someone can help me out.
Now in XP I was able to remove certain files from the trash bin. I never actually emptied the entire trash bin, but once in a while would delete the oldest files from the trash bin and keep the new ones.
Is this possible in OS X? I was only able to empty the entire trash bin, but not certain parts of it.
I recently reset the boot thingy, (with shift-control-r-p) and repaired disk permissions. now if I delete something it will ask "are you sure you want to delete XXX, this item will be deleted immediately, you cant undo this action"
google this and it seems more ppl are wanting this feature but I dont, how do I get it back my normal trash bin? I tried in Finder's preferences, didnt work.
I just updated to iCloud/Lion and now I can't permanently delete any of my me.com messages.¬† This only happens in the iCloud mailbox.¬† I can permanently delete messages from all of my other email accounts.¬† I will delete a message in the iCloud mailbox and when I go to my inbox, the message is back. I checked my preferences and I have "Move deleted message to the Trash mailbox" selected and "Store deleted messages on the server" not selected.¬†
I have an old macbook that has all my songs on, as well as my iPod. I have recently got an iMa which currently has no music on, how would I transfer the music from the iPod to the new iMac, or alternatively from the old Macbook to the iMac?
I ripped a few movies from my personal DVD collection onto my MBP to watch on the road during a recent business trip. When I got home, I went to delete them by putting them in the trash. It worked, or so I thought. The folders containing the movie disappeared from my desktop, but the 6 or 7 gigs of space that they took up were still on my HD (I have the status readout below my HD icon on my desktop and it was unchanged after I trashed the movie). After some research I learned that trashing the file doesn't actually take it off the HD, that I'd have to empty my trash bin to get rid of it permanently. But like many of you, I don't want to completely empty my trash. Is there a way to permanently get rid of individual files/folders? I saw a few ideas. I saw a program called permanent eraser. I also saw where someone suggested using Terminal and some rf commands.
I need to return company Macbook Air and I want to be sure all my private data are permanently deleted and unrecoverable. I know it is not enough to simply delete them, so please, can someone suggest a more secure way? Should I format my Air and if so, how can I do it?
