OS X :: Trying To Change Icon Of Macintosh HD

Dec 10, 2009

I was trying to change the icon of my "Macintosh HD" on my iMac. I'd done this earlier on my Macbook Pro, and I had the same problem as I'm having now. I eventually got it done on the 'Book Pro but I don't remember what I had to do. When clicking "Get Info", in the left-top corner the icon isn't there. It's blank and says "png". Why does the icon not show up? I can't copy-paste it, and it's stuck that way.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Does Macintosh HD Icon Keep Changing

Mar 22, 2012

It seems that every now and then when I log in, my hard drive icon has changed to something strange.

So far I've had a house, and a filing cabient.

This isn't a serious problem, I'm just wondering whether it's just my computer, or a bug in Lion.

OS X :: How To Hide Custom Icon Folder

Aug 29, 2009

I've changed my stack folder from its default icon so I can recognize what's in it i.e. Microsoft Office 2008. But in order to do this, I've needed to create a folder and have it appear first i.e. 0_Icon_Microsoft_Office_2008 How do I hide this folder? Quite annoying to see this folder as it's sole purpose is for changing the icon pic. And if I hide it, will the system recognize this folder for custom icon purposes?

Software :: Can Hide An Open Application's Icon From The Dock

Jul 13, 2010

To the point... I use TimeOut to remind me to get up and move, while I am on my computer. It is a handy app that will make the screen go blank for how ever long I set my breaks to last.

The thing is... I don't need the application icon to sit in my Dock taking up space telling me the application is open. I know it is open since it tells me to get up and stretch every 20 minutes by blanking my screen.

So, is there any way to take the application's icon off the Dock while still leaving it open?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Restored 'Macintosh HD' Inside 'Macintosh HD'

Jul 3, 2012

After reinstall of OS X 10.7.4, I restored an older copy from Time Machine backup. I want to completely replace the current "Macintosh HD" folder with the folder that TM put inside it. I created a separate user account, that did not exist before to do it. Do I need to create a root account? Is there an easy way to copy /Macintosh HD/Macintosh HD/to/Macintosh HD/?

Mac Pro :: Macintosh HD Nearly Full?

Apr 22, 2012

The default 'Macintosh HD' hard drive on my Intel Mac Pro (OSX10.6.8) is almost full and I'd like to clone it to a new larger capacity drive. To keep things simple I will remove the existing drive and keep it safe as a backup. I understand that I can clone the drive to a new one and make the new one bootable using something like Carbon Copy Cloner or the Apple Disk Utility but I just have a couple of quick questions. 

Firstly I believe I must partition the new disk in Disk Utility using a GUID Partition table. What about the naming of the disk? Again to keep things simple I would like the new disk to be named 'Macintosh HD'. 

Regardless of what I name the new disk when it is initially formatted/partitioned will the cloning process also copy the 'Macintosh HD' name to it? Can you have two disks with the same name connected to the Mac Pro at the same time during the clone process? 

Secondly, will the cloning process in the Apple Disk Utility automatically make the new drive bootable or are there further steps required after the clone is made? 

Finally, if I use the Apple Disk Utility to create the clone should I do this from the original Snow Leopard DVD that came with the Mac Pro or should I use the latest version that is on the installed Mac OSX?

OS X :: Macintosh HD Accidentally Renamed?

Aug 29, 2010

The name of the Macintosh HD has somehow been changed to a tiny little circle with an "x" it. I think this may have been done accidentally, but I also would like to eliminate the possibility that it indicates some sort of problem. Of course I know how to highlight the icon and select the naming area and just rename it, bit does anyone know if the little circle with the "x" means anything other than someone just accidentally renamed the Macintosh HD somehow?

OS X :: Don't Have Permissions To Access Macintosh HD

Aug 31, 2010

My MacBook has had song big problems, and all I can get it to do is boot up with the Mac OS X install disk, or the DVD I put ubuntu on earlier. Otherwise I get the grey screen with a folder and question mark flashing on the screen. I am unable to reinstall OS X because of the error, so we (I and a guy on this site) have worked out I need to backup my files using ubuntu, format the computer and then reinstall the OS.

I don't have an external hard drive, but I found ubuntu allows me to use my iPhone in the same way. I have backed up most of my files now, but I cannot access the main folders;
Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Library, Movies, Music or Pictures and I get the following message:
"The Folder contents could not be displayed.

You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "_____".

Another problem is to put these files back onto my newly formatted MacBook, I will have to access my iPhone using ubuntu, and I can't put items onto the Macintosh HD because I get the message; "Error while copying to '(name)'.

OS X :: Using External USB HDD On Macintosh And Windows

Nov 10, 2009

I am buying a Western Digital (probably) External Hard Disk Drive today. It will either be 250GB or 320GB, depends on how much money I'm going to have with me. I wanted to know what the best way to format it is so it can be 'read and write' on both Macintosh and Windows in the same time. But if that's not possible, then at least Windows only (Win7) since that's what I use for games and now games are in huge sizes, just got Call of Duty 6 and it's like 11GBs.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Access Macintosh HD

Jul 4, 2012

I just bought a new 15" Macbook Pro last two days, and today I used Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows 7.

I devided 250GB of my HD for Mac, and the rest for Boot Camp Windows. During Windows 7 installation I maked format the boot camp partition and resized it to 50GB so I have unallocated 450GB free space. After Windows 7 installation completed, I used Disk Management on Windows to create another new partition with FAT formatted. Then I restarted my Macbook Pro to use Boot Camp Assistant to download Boot Camp Driver due to I forgot to download at the firs time.

But I didn't see my Macintosh HD and even Recovery HD on the start up disk selection menu (Hold Option during start-up)I try all things from Apple Support page even try to recover via Internet (Command + R during start-up) and make a Lion Recovery Disk (USD Flash Drive)I have another Macbook run Lion too so I try everything that should work but it's still not work.Finally, I log on to windows and format all Macintosh Partition for a hope to clean install the new Mac OS X Lion, but it still not work.he last thing I haved tried was to exchange my new Macbook Pro hard disk with my unibody 2008 macbook and try to install new Mac OS X Lion. After completed install all new Mac OS X Lion 10.7 (.0), I put the macbook pro hard disk back to the new Macbook Pro and try to boot it but it shows up the Stop Sign.

Info:MacBookPro, Windows7

OS X :: Weird Folder Appearing Under Macintosh HD?

Sep 16, 2010

while clearing up some HD space I noticed a strange folder located on the Macintosh HD. It appears to be named with a single Japanese or Chinese character (those being my best guesses, could definitely be something completely different) and reappears upon restart if deleted. I've attached a picture of what it looks like.
