    DB:3.51:How Can I Stop Finder From Requiring A Password To Delete/Copy&Nbsp; Any Files To Desktop?. 89

    Unless you are the owner of the file, you will not have permission to copy or delete, unless the owner has granted these permissions.Otherwise, highlight your hard disk (Macintosh HD be default) and press command-I.This will open up the file info dialgue box, At the bottom is an arrow with Ownership and permissions next to it.Where it says You can, their is a drop-down menu. Set this to 'Read and Write" and it should solve your problem.

    If you attempt to copy or move a protected folder or file in the Finder and don't get an authenticate dialog box, then your only option is to use the Terminal app. AFAIK, there's no infallible way to generate the authentication box or mimic the sudo command.

    DB:3.46:Dragging Music From Itunes To Finder... 8p




    Hi all -

    When I select and drag a bunch of music from itunes to finder, it often fails to copy if I select too many files. For example, I may want to copy 400 songs to finder, and it will fail unless I do it in 50 song chunks.

    Very rarely it will work. Also, occasionally I will isolate a song that will not copy to finder no matter what.

    An ideas? Is there another way to copy the fles from a playlist - perhaps using the shell or applescript?

    Any advice apreciated!

    I have been using a 256 MB USB flash drive for years with Tiger with no problems. After updating to Leopard (10.5.1), I can't copy anything to the Desktop. I can open and see all files on the drive, and then after dragging one to the Desktop the Finder Copy function starts and then freezes. Each time I can only abort by hitting the power button for 5 seconds, as the Finder ignores all efforts to stop the copy and quit. I use a D-Link USB 2 powered hub, if that is germaine to the issue.

    I also managed to get a Finder freeze when dragging files from the Desktop to the Download folder in the dock.

    Is this a general problem or only specific to my situation? If the latter, what if anything can I change/

    I rountinely backup large chunks of data from my Mac Pro to two external OWC VoyagerQ Firewire hard drives (800). When I say large I mean anywhere from 50GBs to 500GBs at a time. Under 10.2-10.6 I could start one copy and then the second, simple Finder copies mind you, and after the interminable file counting BOTH copies would proceed SIMULTANEOUSLY. Made it as simple as pie to walk away and come back knowing my data was now in three places.Under LION the same process has become hopeless. Following the same procedures above now results in the FIRST copy having to complete BEFORE the SECOND copy can commence. Are you kidding me? A doubling of the time I have to spend backing things up? Before Apple faults my setup or something, I have five VoyagerQs and three FireWire 800 ports, and have tried the two backup drives chained, on separate FW channels, even with one inernal and one external and the same thing happens. I suspect that this is related to Thunder^^^^ and is something APPLE has got to fix fast or a lot of folks are going back to 10.6. Be interesting to see how the Mothership responds. Kill the messenger is most likely.

    If the Finder is re-launching after a right-click, it is a bad contextual menu item, probably Stuffit. They have a fix at their web-site. Try removing items from the "Contextual Menu Items" folder in your "Library" folder, and in the "Library" folder at the top level of the hard drive.

    To expand on what Kappy said I'm pretty sure all the major OSes have the same behaviour and also allow key modifiers.

    When dragging a file holding down the alt key forces a copy command, cmd forces a move and alt + cmd an alias. Windows has something similar but I don't know the exact keys off the top of my head.

    DB:3.10:Copy Files To Iphoto Library -- Convert To Alias Possible? 91


    Two part question:

    Question One: Recently, I made sure that the "Copy Files to iPhoto Library" was NOT CHECKED. However, subsequent "Imports" still seem to copy the entire file, rather than create an alias (which is what I thought ws the behavior of this feature, when turned off).

    I'm guessing I shouldn't be dragging photos onto albums from the Finder (as I've always done)?

    Question Two: I started with iPhoto at the first version, so of course I have "copies" that iPhoto has made -- even of unmodified JPEGs, in addition to my "master" library of Finder folders of JPEGS. Obviously, a gigantic waste of space, and in theory no longer necessary if one doesn;t select the "Copy Files to iPhoto Library".

    So, for LEGACY albums -- is there any automated (or semi-automated) method of converting an EXISTING iPhoto library or album to use aliases for non-modified images? Or do I need to go it manually for each album?

    Sephen

    DB:3.10:Copy Files To Iphoto Library -- Convert To Alias Possible? 91

    Image Capture may just write a tag telling it and other applications that can read that tag to rotate when displaying. A simple check is to drag one into a Safari window. Safari does not read those tags and will show the file's actual physical orientation. I use the contextual menu plugin "QuickImage" to quickly view and rotate files.

    Unless you're getting error messages that indicate a disk failure, the chance that file will be randomly corrupted is very small. However, if you can't tolerate that small risk, then you should use third-party software that does verified writes. I don't have a specific recommendation.

    DB:3.02:Copy Time Machine's Backup Files? 11


    I want to copy backup files created with Time Machine so that I can resize the destination partition to give TM more space, but I can't seem to copy the backup files. Tried Finder copy, "Make Archive," Carbon Copy Cloner copy to disk image ... nothing works.

    Apple Support says if I copy TM's files, enlarge the partition and copy them back, that TM will pick up where it left off. That's what I want to do.

    Suggestions?

    Ken

    DB:3.02:Copy Time Machine's Backup Files? 11

    Well, I was ultimately unable to copy the Time Machine backupdb files by any means whatsoever. I ended up simply reformatting the drive and allocating it all to TM. The important thing is that I have a backup of what's on my machine. And I've been careful about what I deleted.

    While it's nifty to have an historic backup, I don't think that's really the primary purpose, at least not for me. If something important needs to be archived I will archive it elsewhere.

    Yes, replacing the last two weeks of Time Machine backups is technically a "loss," but I haven't really lost anything because I still have my entire system and files.

    I did look into being able to resize partitions with Disk Utility, but that ability is limited: basically, it can change the end point of a partition but not the start point. So although I could make Partition 1 smaller, I couldn't make Partition 2 larger because I couldn't move its start point to include the now-freed-up space from Partition 1.

    Live learn. All in all, though, I'm extremely pleased with Leopard!

    Is there any way to get Finder to copy the text version of the path of the directory it is viewing into the clipboard?

    For example if have a finder window viewing /Applications/Tex is there some command to get finder to put some string like "/Applications/Tex" or "file:///Applications/Tex" or "/Computer/Macintosh HD/Appliations/Tex" into the clipboard so I can paste it into text files or the shell? On Windows XP the File Explorer displays the full path in a copyable pane. I have tried adding the path element to the Finder toolbar (which is very useful) but it does not seem to support copy or paste.

    Thanks,

    DB:3.01:How Do I Copy A Path Or Uri Out Of Finder? cf

    For certain apps - like TextEdit when in Plain Text mode - simply dragging the file/folder from the Finder window to the application window will insert the path.

    it may be the problem is how you named the path, and it is getting messed up because of that. If there are spaces in place of the slashes above in the actual names, using the quotes allows you to use spaces, so removing those slashes for spaces where the real name has a space.

    DB:2.99:In The Copy Box Of Lion's Finder, Is There Anyway To Get The "Don't Replace" Option Back? s9

    Much easier than dropping into a shell to execute a copy operation is to hold the Option key when the warning of duplicate files appear. That will turn "Keep Both" into "Skip," letting you copy only the unique filenames. If you hold the option key a bit too long when option-dragging files from one folder to another, "Skip" will be the default, and pressing option again will switch it to "Keep Both."

While dragging and dropping the "All My Files" folder from Finder to the external drive, the check box was automatically unselected. The massive brainer was such a simple action. I reticked the check box and all is well.By the way, are you an Apple developer or AppleScript expert? I have 12 ideas to create software that will make office admins tasks so much easier. I can execute 50% of what I want done, but I will need a real deal back end dev to seal the apps. If this is you or you know of someone, please ask them to contact me.My email is: myworkaustralia@live.com.auThank you for your time.Kind regards,Brigitte.

    DB:2.95:Usb Flash Drive Crashing Finder 7f


    Can someone shed some light on this issue?

    I have an Intel iMac on which the Finder crashes every time I try to open it in the Finder following the copy of files to the flash drive. This occurs on both local accounts and network accounts.

    I insert the flash drive, drag files to it, they copy just fine, then I try to open the drive to see the files and the Finder crashes. Double click on the flash drive again and the Finder crashes. Double click on the drive again and the Finder crashes, so on and so on. No error message is displayed when the Finder crashes. Everything just disappears from the Desktop and then reappears.

    We have tried several flash drives with the same result on all drives.

    Hi,A friend had a problem on their Windows computer where no files would show up in Windows Explorer. In an attempt to restore the files I plugged their (NTFS) hard drive into an enclosure on my Mac, to copy some files across before reinstalling Windows.However, when I view the hard drive in the Finder, no files are visible. But, if I use the "ls" command in the Terminal, all files show up and can be opened fine. When I copy the folders/files across to Mac OS, they still stay "hidden" to the Finder, but visible to the Terminal.Is there any way of forcing the files (the ones copied across to Mac OS) to be visible in the Finder, to make life easier for restoring the files once they've reinstalled Windows?Thanks for the help.

    DB:2.93:Files Not Showing In Finder But Showing In Terminal sm

    I'm reading my first book on Unix for Mac users.Playing around with the ls command revealed a .m4a file on my desktop, last modified in 2008, zero bytes in size and invisible in Finder.From my extremely limited Unix skills I couldn't seem to preform an action on that file.I guess a record of that file still existed somewhere but the file had been trashed years ago.I used the show invisibles command as explained by Thomas Brierley and was able to see the file (although it looked ghosted) and then was able to re-trash it.I then comfirmed the deletion with ls command.

    You didn't understand what I stated. There is an option in iTunes to burn files as an Audio CD. You can't just drag it to a cd and burn the AAC file. You have to choose to burn it as an audio cd. That makes a CD like you would get from a music company, not mp3's. Once you burn it, you then import the audio cd, which will create unprotected mp3 or AAC files, depending on your import settings.

    DB:2.91:Canon Rebel Xsi And Osx - How To Copy Files From Camera? 8m

    You might not be able to mount the Canon on the desktop unless it has a setting in the camera menu to switch it to USB Mass Storage mode. Many camera brands can do this, but many Canon models cannot.

    It's still pretty easy to get images off it, though. In addition to iPhoto, you can use Apple Image Capture to select and download images to any folder, or any other software that supports the XSi like Canon EOS Utility (included) or Adobe Bridge/Photoshop/Camera Raw. If the XSi doesn't turn up in those apps, make sure you've got the latest versions.

    I don't have the XSi, I have an older model, but according to reviews, the XSi still doesn't have USB Mass Storage support. Without that support I don't think it's going to show up on a Mac desktop.

    You may be seeing it show up for drag-and-drop on a Windows Vista desktop, but the link above says that drag-and-drop in Windows only supports JPEG files, not RAW files. Are you getting just JPEG files on the Windows desktop? If so, and if you intend to use the superior RAW format, then basically you don't have drag-and-drop on Mac or Windows, if the review is correct.

    DB:2.90:Drag Files From Bridge To Finder? xs

    Whatever you do in Bridge is instantly reflected in the Finder and vice-versa. Bridge is only a file browser that shows you what's in the Finder. You cannot avoid copying a file to the hard disk if its on a server. Period. Even from a local disk to another local disk, you must COPY the file.On a related note:This is the boilerplate text often used in connection to working across a network (please NOTE the part where it explains that normally, it does work, but that it is impossible to troubleshoot someone else's network remotely, and that's why it's not supported by Adobe): If you are opening files over a network or saving them to a network server, please cease and desist immediately in the event you are currently experiencing problems with one or more files. Working across a network is not supported. See: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/406/kb406793.html Copy the CLOSED file from your server to your local hard disk, work on it, save it again to your local hard disk, close it, and copy the closed file back to the server. Of course, the fact that Adobe does not support working across a network does not necessarily mean it won't work. It should. Adobe's position is that there are too many variables in a network environment for them to guarantee that everything will work correctly in every network, especially given the fact that if something does not work properly, it's probably the network's fault, and Adobe has no way of troubleshooting your network. If you can't work locally, you are on your own, and if something happens, you're on your own. If you must work from a server, make sure your network administrator is a competent professional. When problems arise, a lot of valuable work can be lost.
