OS X :: How Long To Calculate Size Of External Drive

Dec 12, 2009

I am in the process of migrating files from a Dell laptop running XP to my new iMac. Essentially an easy task as all the files are on an external drive.

I have 2 TB of storage on the iMac and thought it would be a relatively simple task to copy from the external hard drive to the iMac.

After connecting the drive to the iMac I then tried to get the size of a directory on the external drive. I've been waiting about 15 minutes now and it still says "Calculating Size".

Just after doing this I started a copy to move files from the external drive to the iMac. Unfortunately all I see at present is the spinning beach ball.

Just wondering if there's a way of cancelling the copy process or of getting some status as to what is happening?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Does Mail Change The Size Of Attachments

Apr 9, 2012

I have been trying to send som JPEG files to a client.  These files are no more than 450 kb.  They were made in Adobe Illustrator CS5.  The file sizes on my Mac are below 450 kb, yet when I attach them to an e-mail the size plummets to 31.3 kb, making them totally unusable for my client.  I do not see any setting in Mail that would affect the file size of an attachment.  I've attached files before with no problem.  I do not know if this is because it's a JPEG.  Unfortunately JPEG is the file format that they need.  So to get arounfd this I've uploaded them to my server... but it would be so much easier to just be able to attach them to an e-mail.

OS X :: Snow Leopard - How To Change Hard Drive Size To Base 2

Aug 28, 2009

I am already aware that Snow Leopard reports hard drive sizes in base 10 and not base 2.

I'm not here to argue about proper use of SI unit prefixes, the HD manufacturer marketing cabal that reports base 10 and not base 2 sizes on the box or the merits of gibibytes vs gigabytes or GiB vs GB.

I'm just asking for a way to change the size reporting back to base 2.

I haven't yet found a way to change it back here in the forums or on Google and only a few others have asked in other threads.

I figured that making a new thread would be helpful for people who just want a solution instead of arguing about base 10 vs base 2 and having to dig through other threads full of that.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Preview App Won't Save Paper Size For Printing?

Feb 16, 2012

How can I purge my print settings via .plist or other so I can change my paper size? No matter what I select, preview application 'refreshes' my print values to a fixed 8.5x11 that applies a second border to my pdf and pushes everything down the page. Borderless 8.5x11 just won't stay as the value even though my printer has done this before. Worked fine prior, but now it just will not take a new page size.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Sort By File Size In Smart Folders?

Feb 18, 2012

The Apple info says use pop-up menus to select search criteria, but where is that? I wish to have the folder show all documents bigger than a certain size (ie. video) appear in the folder. My next question, is can I then drag to the Trash from that folder and know that they're deleted from their original location. I assume appearing in a smart folder is like an alias, its not reall copied to this new location.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Underestimating Backup Size?

Apr 25, 2012

Lately it seems that Time Machine has been underestimating the size of each backup. What it originally says to be a 10 MB backup turns out to be several GB. As it's backing up, Time Machine will say "X out of 10MB backed up" or something along those lines, but when X reaches 10MB, X continues to grow and so does the original estimate of 10MB. It might then say "13MB of 13MB backed up" and it will continue on this way until it has backed up so much underestimated data that Time Machine tells me it can't finish the backup because it doesn't have enough space on the backup drive. (Time Machine should've deleted some backups beforehand to make space for the new backup, but it didn't know to because it had underestimated the amount of space necessary for the backup.)  

I have already wiped the backup drive and deleted all the Time Machine preference files, only to still face the same problem. I'm backing up my internal 1TB drive (only 300 GB used) and my 500GB external drive (400GB used) to another 1TB external drive, so having enough space on the backup drive shouldn't be the problem, right? BTW, I'm running Snow Leopard.

OS X :: Showing File Size In Icon View?

Nov 17, 2009

Is there an option/tweak/add-on to show the size of a highlighted file in icon view? I know I can change to a different view or use 'Get Info' on the file but that defeats the purpose. Is there anyway to see this information on the information bar on the bottom of the window (instead of just number of files and space available on disk)?

Nothing major, just something to make life a little easier.

Applications :: Won't Work With Iphoto Library / Size Doesn't Match Folder Size

Dec 31, 2009

why the iphoto library file size in the finder appears to be a certain size, while iphoto itself reports a very different size. Is there any way to recover any disk space or reconcile the numbers here? Please see the attachments below, it may make a bit more sense that way. I would like to recover the disk space and if it really is a 16gb difference somewhere.

Applications :: ITunes Libary Size Not Matching Music Folder Size?

Nov 27, 2010

I'm using iTunes 9.2.1 and it states that my music library is 159.99gb with 25,994 songs, however the folder containing music files is 171.26gb with 30,309 files. This is a difference of 11.27gb and 4315 files. The folder only contains mp3 or m4a files with their respective album and band folders; no images, text files or anything else. The iTunes folder is located elsewhere. I added the folder to iTunes again to see if there were 11gb of songs I'd forgotten to add and there was no difference. I even deleted all iTunes settings and the current library and added the folder again and it is still missing 11.27gb.

I'm about 95% sure that none of my music collection is missing from iTunes so my first thought was that iTunes is just reading the file sizes and count inaccurately and it really is 171.26gb, but I'm not sure.

Can anyone think of a solution without going though my entire collection and comparing it to iTunes to see if anything is missing?

OS X :: Finder Won't Display Folder Size In Size Column Or Info Window?

Feb 5, 2010

Normally, the Finder window will display a folder's size in the Size column. However, I have one folder which shows as "Zero KB" in the Size column. When I open the General Info window, the Size reads as "Zero KB on disk (Zero bytes) for 0 items."

In order to get the folder size I have to go into the folder, select all folders, then with either the Summary Info or Inspector window, it'll show the folder size ("185.32 GB on disk").

Why is this occurring in only this folder? Is it because it's a large folder?

I'm running Snow Lep 10.6.2. The folder is on an external drive in FAT32 format.

Applications :: Won't Work With XSlimmer / Current Size In App Different From Finder Size

May 22, 2010

I purchased Xslimmer recently,and I've just notice a big issue. In Xslimmer, it says the current size of the app is say 20 mb, but Finder says it is 50 mb. Same thing after I slim it. I checked on a different computer, and it said the same thing. Could someone check the filesize of Mail.app in Finder (mine was 77.4 mb), and the current size in XSlimmer (said it was 25.5mb).
