I just migrated from W7 to OS X and love it so far but was wondering if there was a way to have the folders show thumbnails instead of just the plain blue folder. Maybe I'm just spoiled because later versions of Windows had that. [url]
how to organize files in folders by date modified by when i modified it. I know that you can right click and use "arrange by date modified" but that sometimes arranges the files when they were modified online and not by me. I know on windows when i use Arrange by last modified it arranges it according to the date when i last downloaded it or opened it, not by when it was modified online. I would like to be arrange by date last opened or used by me.
Saw this tip on another site and figured others may find it useful and wanted to pass it along.
Tip: Using The New Automatic Import Folder In iTunes 9
10:26 am, September 10th, 2009, Giles Turnbull
iTunes 9 has neat little new feature: it will automatically import any music or videos you throw into a specific folder.
That folder is called ďAutomatically Add to iTunesĒ, and after installing iTunes 9 youíll find it tucked away inside your ď~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Ē folder.
Anything you drag into it will be imported into iTunes immediately Ė and itís worth noting that the original file (the one you put into the Automatic folder) promptly disappears afterwards. It doesnít get trashed, but moved to the appropriate place inside the iTunes Music folder.
I just bought a macbook! Yah, but I've already hit a snag... a notebook is only good if it contains my music library! so seeing as I have everything on my PC and I already have the network folders set up... I tried ot copy my music (3.71GB) onto my mac, but my mac can only see 945MB of it and that's all it will copy. it can see and copy my video's folder(195GB). but only a fraction of the music!
I've got a couple of accounts set up in Mail, and I'm anal about keeping a clean inbox. Is there any plugin of which I'm unaware that can automatically move messages in either server's inbox into an archive folder of my choosing, depending on the account?
I am creating a clean install disc for vista home premium to eventually use in a dual boot with XP 32 or 64,
I am following some guides that were recommended to me by Ops on NBR. (Stallen/Orev) and I am going step by step. I have found that the SWSetup is for HP laptops only.? I have located the DRV file which has all drivers for the Acer 5100-5674 (or most)
Is there a folder similar to SWSetup that has the "crapware" . I would like to make sure I backup everything that I may want now or in the future.
has anyone been successful in clean installing vista home premium on a 5100-5674?
I accidentally (don't ask how) deleted a folder containing 180 GB of data from my 8920 (with 640gb hdd), and foolishly emptied the recycle bin after that. The data was in drive d: please give me some help guys..i have no idea how to recover my life which is my-180gb folder. Honestly, this is the most f-up error that ever happened to me
i am using¬†HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC ¬†of windows 8.1, i used a pendrive today after that in my all drive, (as C,D,E & F) ¬†two folder( $RECYCLE.BIN & System Volume Information) auto created, as it not be deleted.Also using authentic antivirus,
I am having problems with the touchpad on my laptop. When I am in the middle of typing I have to watch because it will begin typing where my cursor was laft on the screen. I have to be very careful because I barely touch my touchpad and the mouse will click. I have tried to figure out how to turn the sensitivity down but I cannot find it in the devices. It tells me no devices were found when I click on the mouse folder. I have tried and tried but I cannot find anywhere to change the settings for the touchpad. when I am trying to type a paper and I look up and half my paper is in the middle of a different section or it just hasn't been typing because I have clicked out of the screen.
It flickers when i click something or open a folder. It also goes crazy when i put on a video. ¬† Things i've done:¬† ¬† Updated drivers. ''Hold power button'' method. ¬† Clues i have: ¬† 1. I remember back when i just got the laptop, it would always flicker in the exact same way when a charger was plugged in that was too weak (power out let too low message) and changing the charger always fixed it. ¬† Now i still have the same charger (i have 3 hp and 1 dell chargers at home that fit my laptop) and none of them seems to be ''enough'' (60w x2 65w x1 and 120w x1). ¬† ¬†2. Another funny thing is that when i uninstalled my Ati Radeon HD5850 drivers completely, there was no flickering, but obviously, i need to have that as i use this laptop strictly for games)¬† ¬† 3. The screen refresh rate is 60hz and not possible to change,. ¬† 4. There is NO flickering on an external screen (tried two tvs, both didn't clicker a bit) ¬† 5. You might say it's a hardware problem, but i actually somehow got it to work without the flickering earlier tonight and stayed up all night playing and it didn't cause me any issues. It was working great. ¬† 6. Occasionally the PC will freeze (could that be a battery problem? since i currently am not using one as both mine are broken and i'm waiting for a new one to ship) ¬† 7. I have had 2 blue screens of death recently. One while installing ATI drivers and other i don't remember.
My Recovery E: Folder is full -- 31.9MB free of 14.6GB - Windows Vista. I keep getting pop ups/messages saying that my E: folder is almost full, and occasionally that I should close my internet browser so I don't lose information.¬†
Some of them discussions said to go into the E: folder and delete files which should be there (can't access it the folder -- there's only a warning message) or to change the Drive Letter (get a message that says it cannot remove "the letter drive of your volume", and now I'm not sure what I should do next.
Conventional wisdom holds that one of FAT 32's classical limitations is a 4 Gigabyte files size limit. I've done a few searches on the net, and I find this rule repeated ad-infinitem, without contradiction.
I recently purchased a 320 GB Iomega Prestige external drive that I plan to use interchangeably with my Mac and PC systems. To do this, I re-formatted the disk to a single 320 GB partition with FAT 32 file system (The drive comes formatted NTFS).
Yeah, I know there are work-arounds that would permit me to format it NTFS, and use it read-write on my Mac, and there are probably a few solutions that would permit me to format it Mac OS Extended, and use it my PC. I prefer not to use any "workarounds".
Here's my question.... I had occasion to copy a few files to the drive from my MacBook to the drive, namely my Virtual Machine files, that I don't want to use Time Machine for. I had no problem doing so. The two files exceed 4 Gigabytes handily, with one of them being over 30 Gigabytes! Oops, this can't be done, right?
I ask, how is this possible? I thought I had a 4 Gigabyte limit with FAT 32. Does the fact that I formatted the drive with my Mac give me some sort of advantage that Microsoft's formatting using the same file system does not?
I have read that the reason the FAT 32 files sytem can't store files over 4 Gigabytes, is the insufficient lack of storage within the allocation table for the requisite number of pointers required for a file over 4 Gig in size.
I'm going to pick up a bigger HDD pretty soon for my rev A Unibody MBP. Would I be able to use the old 250 GB 5400 drive in the PS3? Seems like a worthwhile upgrade. I'm guess since they are aboth SATA it should work, right?
what is a dvd ram? I know it is like a pen drive. so what software do i use to write to it? how do i use it? its write speed is 3x. how does it compare to the ordinary dvd rom? I bought a few Maxell dvd rams.
I know that I have stated earlier that I wasn't considering the MBP 17 because the lack of portability, and that I already got a 24" Full HD screen.
But the thing is; I might be able to get the MBP 17 for the same price as the highend MBP 15, because of all the hassle etc that occurred.
I feel like, I don't really need the extra screen estate, I already think the 15" is barely portable, but the 17" got a great battery etc.
When it comes to what I'm going to use the computer for; mainly light stuff the coming time, but after that I'm going to start using final cut pro a lot and I know the 15" screen isn't enough for the ui of the program and the 17 is enough.
