OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migrate Data To A New RAID Setup?

May 6, 2012

I've been trying to migrate data to a new RAID setup, but have been running into the error code 36 issue where Mac created invisible files are killing the file transfers. At any rate, I tried about three different directory cleanup utilities and for the most part got almost all the data to move. Now I'm onto the last bit which was giving me permissions errors as well.I used Batchmod to make everything read write and I ALSO CLEARED THE XTARS. Worked like a charm and everthing transfered. HOWEVER. Killing the extened attributes of the files turned them all into Executible files with no program ownership. BTW, there are font files so there are hundreds of them. Is there anyway to re-assign them or get some of the attributes back?

IMac :: Disk Utility RAID Setup - Backing Up Data

Jul 11, 2010

I have a couple of questions regarding backing up my external drive. I've got a 2TB external drive with about 1.5TB of movies, Music etc. I've got another identical empty drive that I want to keep a backup of the first drive on. So my question is what is the best way of backing up this data? I thought of using disk utility(I'm running snow leopard 10.6.4 if that makes any difference) to created a mirrored RAID set. If I plug in the empty drive then create the RAID set will my first drive get wiped when the set is created? or with it leave the data on the first drive intact? Or should I just use something like crashplan to backup to the 2nd drive?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Setup And Confirm RAID Mirror

May 23, 2012

Literally just got shiny new miniMac Server with the dual 70GB internakky hard drives/disks with OS X 10.7.$ LION pre-installed. What a nice machine in a super cool box Seemed to bootup and run fine!Now my issue (there will be more for this MAC newbie):How to setup AND more importantly (item B below) CONFIRM that a RAID MIRROR is working? Want nothing fancier than 2-nd drive is exact duplicate of 1-st drive at all times. That is, an 'active and full up-to -the second" backup of the main 1-st drive.I have done nothing to 1-st drive as it came from APPLE.When I try to setup RAID set using DISK Utility, I get message about system(1-st drive) can't be used in a RAID or such.

yet I can add 2-nd drive to what I tink is a RAID set and then 'Enable' it.It seems to add another entry to thr left-side of drves list panel but not sure that 1-st and 2-nd drives are BOTH in the new "RAID SET' or that the set just consists of the "single" 2-nd disk? B. I don't think that 1-st drive data is actually being duplicated to 2-nd drive.For instance, how do I know that it was 'caught up' to match 1-st drive AND then is [code]

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create A Raid 1+0 Setup Across Daisychained Thunderbolt Harddrives?

May 15, 2012

I need more storage and need it to be quick and redundant 

I'm concidering 2 of either the WD thunderbolt duo 6TB or the LaCie 2Big Thunderbolt 6TB. I want to set each 2disk unit to RAID 1 and then srtipe them as RAID0 accross thunderbolt to hopefully result in one striped and mirrored 6TB RAID volume  

I'm hoping yes because i've seen 4 of the WB unit daisychained as one huge RAID0   but I'd like the redundancy. also i want the resultant volume in exFAT as I am constantly jumping between OSX and Win 7

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Creating A Disk Image Of A RAID 1 Setup?

Jun 20, 2012

I have just finished setting up my first Lion Server from scratch on a Mac Mini with dual 500GB Drives which I set up as RAID 1. I have the server exactly as I want it, and before the users start logging on and it gets all screwed up I would like to create a disk image of it so that I could reinstall if necessary w/o having to start from scratch. 

Is the process of creating a disk image for a RAID 1 any different than that of a disk image from a single drive set up? Will Disk utility just see this as a single volume or will it want to create a disk image of the entire RAID? i.e will the disk image be 1 TB (500 GB x 2)? And when it comes to reimaging my RAID, will I just recreate a RAID 1 and be able to write to it from that disk image?

Mac Pro :: Advice On Video Editing Setup / Raid Setup For Backups?

Apr 27, 2008

My brother is going to start school in June for Film. He is all set to buy a Mac and knows the software side of things but not so much the Hardware side.

I have a few questions:

1. Should extra hard drives be bought third party?

2. Should he do a raid setup for backups?

3. How much memory should he buy for Final Cut operations? (third party)

4. Should he look into getting a Dell monitor instead of Apple? What is a comparable Dell monitor?

5. 4-Core or 8-Core?

6. Any other knowledgeable Mac Pro buying advice

Mac Pro :: Possible To Migrate RAID To Larger Drives?

Apr 2, 2009

I'm about to configure my 2006 MP with one of Apple's RAID cards using RAID5. I currently have 4x 750GB drives that I can use, but I can see needing more space in the not too distant future. When I do need more space, can I simply drop in a 2TB drive, let the RAID system reconfigure itself, and repeat this until I have all 4 drives in place? Is there a better or different way to do this? I know that if one of the drives is larger than the others, then only a drive space equivalent to the smaller drives will be used in RAID5. After addition of the fourth drive (per the above scheme), will the array then use the full 2TB of each drive?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Migrate Data From Old PC To It?

Mar 25, 2012

I have been trying to migrate my data from my PC to my new mac but it always seems to fail.At first, I would begin the migration assistant and then after a while the PC would just crash.But then I finally thought I managed to get it working. It said that process was complete (on both the PC and mac), but there was no data on my computer and no music in my iTunes. 

PS I also have an Ethernet cable if that's of any use but I don't know how to use it.

Mac Pro :: How Reliable Is OS X RAID Setup

Oct 3, 2008

I have 2 1TB drives coming in on Monday, and I plan to put them in a mirror RAID using Disk Utility. How reliable is the OS X software RAID setup? Would I be better to just manually backup from one drive to another? The drives will be for my photography, I wanted a mirror setup so I'd finally have a backup of my (current) 250GB's of photos. (Most of which I could probably burn to DVD's but humor me.)

If the RAID crashed somehow via the software, would the data still be recoverable? I have a MP and will be putting them in Bays 3 & 4. Also, is there any benefit to the different block sizes? Since my files will all be at least 7MB would the biggest block size speed it up?

Mac Pro :: Setup RAID 1 Using Two Drives

Jul 1, 2009

I just got a brand new MAC PRO desktop. It came with a 600GB HDD. I purchased a second identical internal 600GB HDD. I wanted to do setup a RAID 1 using these 2 drives. Currently the main drive has the OS and all my other apps installed. I installed the 2nd drive and was fooling with disk utility. I'm not sure how to set this up however. I tried numerous guides online but I just cant figure it out.

MAC PRO (takes up to 4 internal drives) - currently installed 2 identical drives
Using Disk utility

The RAID tab says "online" and the status is green (indicating the RAID is working). However on my desktop i see the 2nd hardddrive mounted with no contents in it. I just want to able to use the 2nd drive as a mirror so this way if one fails I'm still up and running.

Intel Mac :: Migrate Data To Dual Disk?

Jun 10, 2012

I have a new iMac with two disks- the SSD and the 1TB hard drive.  Lion was loaded onto the SSD, so that's my start up drive.  I need to migrate all the data from my old iMac (also has Lion) to the new one.  When I run Migration Assistant, it thinks I want the old mac migrated , which of course, doesn't have enough space for all the data. I can't find any way to tell it to migrate to the 1TB hard drive.

Mac Pro :: RAID 10 Setup With Four 2 TB WD Blacks Or Greens?

Dec 14, 2010

Basically this would create a big 4 gig array that I could split into multiple partitions. I'd have mirroring and fast performance. I was wondering what the performance difference would be between the Greens and Blacks - Greens are known for worse performance, but I was wondering if in RAID 10 it would even matter.

PowerPC :: Make RAID Setup In G4

Dec 20, 2010

I have a PowerMac G4 I'd like to use as an "experimental" backup machine. I am looking to try and make a RAID setup in it, and I'm no expert with that. I'm wondering if this is even possible, first. I'm also wondering if I can do this with 2 40 gb drives and a 20 gb drive. I want to make it so it appears as 1 drive. I'd be using tiger and a software RAID if that is of any relevance.

Mac Pro :: Raid 0 Setup To Increase Performance

Mar 1, 2010

Setting up raid 0 for my mac pro 3,1. Right now I have the stock 320GB drive that I use with Mac OS X, and an additional 500GB drive running Win XP through Bootcamp. I read on apple's site that you could stripe multiple drives to create a raid 0 to increase performance on the Mac Pro w/o the raid controller card. So my question is how do I do that? I'm in the process of picking a new 2TB drive to set up the raid with the 320GB OS drive. Since the 500GB one is dedicated for XP I don't think I could include it in the raid right?

PowerPC :: Safe To Migrate All Data From Powerbook G4 12"?

Nov 26, 2008

Is it safe for me to migrate all the contents of my powerbook G4 12" to my brand new 13" aluminum macbook? I thought it would be too much trouble to load all my iPhoto pictures, iTunes music, registered programs, and firefox bookmarks. Any downside to doing this? I'm assuming since there are no viruses on OSX, that I will be fine transfering everything directly over to the new laptop are, correct? It's just too bad this is going to take 3 hours!!! All I want to do is play with the new macbook.

OS X :: Best Way To Migrate Data After A Snow Leopard Clean Install?

Sep 3, 2009

I know there are numerous posts already about whether to 'clean install' or upgrade to Snow Leopard, but I can't seem to find an answer to my question anywhere.

I have two computers that I've already upgraded to Snow Leopard - an iMac that's about a year old (with data on it that has been migrated between macs since Tiger) and a brand new MBP which is unblighted by any migrated data. The MBP seems much faster for the upgrade, but the iMac seems a little slower.

My instinct here is to erase my iMac hard drive and install Snow Leopard from scratch, which would presumably solve the sluggish performance issues.

My question is this: I have all my iMac data backed up on Time Machine. Is performing a clean install and then restoring my mac from Time Machine going to give me exactly the same problems as upgrading did? Or would it be better to selectively move data back to my iMac after a clean install?

If I need to do this the hard way (as I suspect) and selectively bring back my data to leave the junk behind, is there anything I can do before running a clean install to make this more painless?

I have a Early 2008 Mac Pro. I have the Apple Hardware Raid Card Installed. I have 4 2TB disks installed. Currently I've got the system disk setup in Bay 1 as a single disk. Then I have the disks in bays 2 through 4 setup as a raid 5. I've been thinking that I might be better off to make all 4 disks into a raid 5 array and then just make volumes for the system disk and my work disk. My goal is to have a system volume an a scratch/work volume for image and video editing.
