How To Determine Free Disk Drive Space Over Network? www.vbforums.com

Here is my situation, simplified quite a bit to make the description of the problem a little easier to understand. I have 2 computers networked together and want to move a rather large file from one computer to a shared folder on the other computer. However, before I do that, I'd like to check to make sure that there is plenty of disk space available on the destination drive.Does anyone know if it's possible to determine the free disk drive space on a networked computer? I know how to use the GetDiskFreeSpace API to determine the local disk free space, but can't figure it out over a network.Note: The network disk drive is *NOT* mapped to the local computer, I am just moving the file to a shared folder on the other computer.Is there another (better) way to do what I am trying to do?Thanks in advance,Matt

Snow Leopard :: How To Make OS X Boot Disk Using USB Thumb Drive discussions.apple.com

I am getting really conflicting information about possibility to use USB thumb drive for boot up drive for OSX! Some people say yes, some say no, some - not sure. A Mac user wants to create OSX 10.6 boot-up disk on a USB thumb drive, so it can be used to start the Mac instead of using manufacturer's CD. Also, (thumb drive's size permitting) the Mac user must be able to install software on it, as it is done on the internal HD. The computer is MacBookPro , Intel based , OSX 10.6. The USB thumb drive is 16 Gb brand new. So, what the exact steps will be, to properly Mac format the thumb drive with OSX disk utility and then install on it the OSX 10.6 from the manufacturer's grey CD that comes with the Mac? Could someone, who has practical experience and is absolutely sure about the exact steps provide the final answer, please? Information: mac book Mac OS X (10.6.4)

OS X Leopard :: Time Machine - Planning For NAS After Data Loss discussions.apple.com

After a recent episode of serious data loss, I'm moving to a 2TB NAS solution for my 5-Mac home network. We are only using Time Machine on one system now. My question is, does the destination disk for a Time Machine backup need to be exactly the same size as the home HD? That is, if you have a 300 GB directory to back up that lives on a 750 GB hard drive, does the TM destination need to be 750 GB exactly? Can it be larger? Can it be smaller (as long as there's enough space for the backup)? Can multiple Macs using TM back up to a single large disk or disk array? That is, can each Mac on a network use TM to create separate backups on a single network drive? Information: Eight-Core Mac Pro Mac OS X (10.4.9) Boot Camp 1.3/Vista Ultimate/Win XP Home

IMac Intel :: Failed Internal HDD Possibly Causing System Freezes - Can Drive Be Ignored discussions.apple.com

I am using a 20" white plastic Intel Core Duo iMac. At one point I had a hard disk failure, which I was able to recover from using DiskWarrior. However the drive would failed again with gradually increasing frequency so I eventually decided to replace its hard disk. After researching replacing the internal hard disk in this unit, I concluded that I would probably break more things replacing the internal HD, so I should use an external disk instead. My current setup has me booting off a 1TB external HD using OS X 10.6.3. The internal hard disk is still connected, formatted, and empty. Typically it will appear on my desktop like any other drive when I boot up, but occasionally I get the message "The disk you inserted is unreadable", asking me if I want to erase, eject or ignore it. Usually I can successfully erase it again to avoid the message (at least for a week or so until it appears again). Information: 20" Intel Core Duo iMac Mac OS X (10.6.3)

The drive has plenty of space, Timemachine just spins and says preparing backup - this continues even if you leave it doing this overnight we were using a back up program called retrospect for scheduled backups of selected folders from all machines which would back up to the imac. retrospect is now not working as we have upgraded to Leopard and it does not work properly with LeopardWhat options are there for scheduled backup software that we could run on the imac I have seen this new server drive that says that it does scheduled backups over a network - will this work? or can we still use the imac to do this?

Hardware :: Installing New External WD Hard Drive On PPC Mac forums.macrumors.com

I just thought I'd mention this for anyone who is thinking of using a Western Digital 1TB drive on your PPC Mac running 10.4. The MyBook Essential 1 TB external USB 2.0 drive is not compatible* out of the box with my Mac PPC G5 computer. If I plug it in, I get a message that the drive is not readable and an offer to initialize it. However when trying to partition the drive using Apple's Disk Utility (in 10.4), I get formatting error: Input/output error. The solution is to download the WD Macintosh + Turbo Drive utility from Western Digital and install it on your PPC Mac. As previously mentioned, I have a G5, so while I assume this should work for any PPC Mac running 10.4.11, I don't know for sure. If you have an intel Mac there should be no issues with this drive requiring the utility to be installed. This hard drive worked as it should when it was first plugged into the MBP.

I have an external WD drive in a self-enclosed case, both purchased from OWC, used for my Time Machine backups.

I ran Disk Utility on my 'Time Machine' partition, starting with verify disk. It reported that it needed to be repaired. When I run repair, it runs for several minutes and I see information of what is being done -- incorrect block count for file shutdown_time, incorrect block count for file permStore, etc -- but I always ends with "Disk Utility can't repair this disk" and that it needs to be reformatted.  I've run Repair Disk multiple times, all with the same answer so it seems running it again won't change the problem.

OS X Leopard :: Desktop Icons Won't Display On Desktop discussions.apple.com

I recently installed a couple of what seemed to be interesting menubar items (MenuStrip and Isolator). Shortly after (not concurrent with) I lost the icons that show up on the Desktop of files in the Desktop folder. The files are all intact - nothing lost, they just don't show up on the Desktop. I've removed these two applications using AppZapper, run the new DiskWarrior 4.1.1, repaired the permissions, run repair disk from Disk Utility, reinstalled Leopard from the DVD, and now I'm at a loss on how to bring back those icons. I'm running OS X 10.5.5 on an Intel Mac Mini. I use a Newer MiniStack as my boot drive. If I boot from the internal drive (which is virtually virgin from the day of purchase), the Desktop icons from that user are displayed as they should be. Is there someway to "rebuild" the Desktop or otherwise bring things back to normal? Information: Intel Mac Mini Mac OS X (10.5.5)

Difference Between Wnetaddconnection And "net Use" www.codeguru.com

...newbie here...Does anyone know if there is a difference between wnetaddconnection (this is the API funtion for mapping a network resource) and the "NET USE" command from DOS prompt?The reason I am asking is the following:I have noticed that with wnetaddconnection function it is impossible to map a local drive (such as D: if you have a second partition in your hard drive), because it returns error 85 (ERROR_ALREADY_ASSIGNED).But with the command "NET USE" you can still map a local drive with any network resource!Does anyone know how to overcome this restriction of this API call, if I still want to map a local drive from a visual basic program?

Enumerating Valid Hard Disks Or Network Drives W/VB Code www.vbforums.com

Hi-I need code that will let me access or assess only hard disks or valid (connected) network drives, while 'ignoring' removable (floppy, thumb, etc) or CD/DVD drives. I saw the code example here on this site for vb.net, but I am using VB 6.0, not vb.net. I am writing a program to list .mp3's from a given local hard disk or network drive location. I already have the program working, but would like to make it easier by adding a feature to search and compile the list from your available drives (but not removable drives) for .mp3 media and need it to me 'smart' enough to ignore any removable drives.

Intel Mac :: Super-drive Unable To Eject Disk? discussions.apple.com

I have a iMac (iMac7,1) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz that is 5 years old.  The MATSHITADVD-R UJ-875 (DB09) Superdrive has been replaced once already.  It is malfucntioning again.  I was wondering if there were any troubleshooting steps I could take that I am unaware of before I replace the drive.    It seems to be a mechanical issue.  The drive attempts to eject a disk - it sound like the disk is ejecting, yet it cannot.  It keeps attempting to eject the disk over and over again.  It has happened with a number of different disks, often after some time the disk will eventually eject. This time this one seems to be stuck for good. [URL] Info: iMac 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo w/ 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Intel Mac :: How To Completely Reformat HD To Reinstall From Backup discussions.apple.com

I installed windows through bootcamp and partitioned my hard drive to about a 300Gb/600Gb windows and mac respectively. After a while i decided to remove the windows partition. As I was repartitioning the Hard Drive through disk utility my mac froze and went to a gray screen so I restarted it. Disk utility says that the process finished however it does not recognise the 300Gb I used for windows. i.e. Disk utility says there is one partition, and that the total capacity is about 1Tb. However the spaced used and space available adds up to 600Gb, its like the mac thinks that it is repartitoned to just 1, but not allowing me to acces that 300Gb. so my question is how do i completely strip back the hard drive to basic factory settings (iv backed up all my data to an external drive) so I can reinstall the mac operating system and repair the drive to make use of its full capacity, then re install from my backed up external drive.

Software :: Backing Up Entourage 2004? forums.cnet.com

I have a network of about 40-50 Macs running Tiger or Leopard and they are all using Entourage 2004 configured for Exchange. This means that their mailbox email is backed up on the Exchange Server. However, in Entourage users can archive email out of their mailbox into an area within Entourage called 'Folders On My Computer'. Once the emails go in there its removed from their mailbox. My concern is that this area of Entourage is on the local hard drive and we don't backup local hard drives. We tell all users that their documents must be on the network fileserver to get backed up nightly. Does anybody else here look after networked Macs running Entourage with Exchange and have a backup plan for the local Entourage database ?

PowerPC :: Converting A MBR-partitioned Drive To APM For Use On PPC G4? forums.macrumors.com

I am trying to replace the hard drive on an old 450 MHz PowerMac G4 (AGP Graphics) which I bought years ago off eBay for my young child to play with. Now I'd like to use this Mac again as a sandbox for learning how to integrate OSX into Windows dominated corporate networks. The original internal drive is a 27 GB IDE Seagate Barracuda, and I'd like to install an available 80 GB Seagate drive, which at some point had been partitioned on an Intel PC (running Windows or Linux). At first I wasn't aware that an incompatible partitioning scheme on PPC Macs might prevent this. I became suspicious only after numerous seemingly successful installs of OSX Tiger (on any 80 GB drive) the Mac would not recognize the drive (not even acknowledge its presence) after the subsequent reboot. This was the case when attaching the drive internally. At one point I managed to execute a boot command (forgot which one) that took me to a prompt where I could select the external drive as the boot drive. However, this only worked when the drive was in an externall Firewire enclosure, AND only with the original drive still attached internally, AND I had to perform this manually at each reboot. Finally my original drive died. Now I need to find a way to boot from the replacement drive installed internally. (Having a dozen barely used older drives available I'm too cheap to go out and buy a brand new one, especially since there's no guarantee that a new drive isn't already partitioned - and these days it's hard to find anything smaller than 160 GB anyway - the G4 only supports up to 128 GB.) After much research I learned that the need for the proprietary Apple Partitioning Scheme (APS) on the PPC platform must be the issue. While the newer Intel-based Macs appear to come with an updated Disk Utility which provides the option to choose the partitioning method (between APS, GUID, and MBR) my original Tiger DVD does not have that option. Since this is my only Mac, and I paid dearly for the OSX Tiger upgrade a few years ago (and this Mac is only supposed to be a test environment) I am not inclined to buy another OSX disk/license at this time. Despite scouring all the Mac forums I have not identified a practical way to get a bootable APM partition onto a hard drive once it's been spoiled with another partitioning scheme. Multiple seemingly successful OSX installs (during which I created brand new volumes with Disk Utility's Partitioning feature) end up with failure to recognize the drive upon reboot. I tried this with multiple drives from different manufacturers, although all of those drives at some point had Windows or Linux on them. ny ideas on how to wipe a MBR-partitioned drive totally clean and force APM upon

Mac Mini :: Intel Core Duo A1176 - Does Not Accept Keyboard Input On Boot forums.macrumors.com

I have an Intel Mac mini (purchased in 2005 or 2006) with a fresh install of OS X Leopard on it. I recently changed the Startup Disk in the OS X system preferences to be the CD/DVD drive, and everything has gone downhill since there. I inserted a CD and attempted to boot from it right after changing this setting. I noticed the CD drive spun up the disk, but after waiting several seconds a black screen appeared, saying "No bootable device — insert boot disk and press any key". There were two problems here: first, the CD never ejected from the computer, and second, there was no response to any key press. After restarting and shutting down a few times I got the Mac to spit out the CD somehow. I restarted, inserted the same OS X Leopard disk used to install the operating system earlier that day, and got the same "No bootable device" error.

Debian Multimedia :: Possible To Burn Files From Network Share? forums.debian.net

I'm trying to burn a DVD using k3b, and would like to access files from a shared network drive from a Windows machine. I can see the files in Nautilus from "Network Servers" and drilling down to the right directory, I can open the files no problem, but I can't get k3b to recognise them. Firstly I can't navigate to the network drive from the file tree on the left in K3b. If I drag and drop the files from Nautilus into k3b, it says "Problems while adding files to the project: No non-local files supported". If I use Project -> Add Files I can then get to the network drives, but when I select and add the files it says "Remote files not accepted - You can only select local files". In the end I had to copy all the files using Nautilus from the network share onto a USB stick, burn the DVD and then delete the files again. (I used the USB stick just to see if that counted as more "local" than a network share). Was there an easier / more efficient way to do this that I missed?

Why No Folder Size In Windows 7 www.sevenforums.com

Yes, this is an old issue but I wanted to summarize a few points, and open it for further discussion: (1) Optionally displaying size of all folders has been a top-requested feature for years (2) Windows 7 Explorer does not have this, although hovering the mouse pointer over the folder will show individual folder size. (3) The Mac Finder displays folder size, although it's not enabled by default. (4) In XP, Windows add-on tools like FolderSize and TreeSize Pro would add a column to Windows Explorer showing folder size. Unfortunately the underlying API IColumnProvider was removed starting with Vista, so these tools don't work in either Vista or Windows 7. There are various arguments why Explorer can't display folder size, such as it would burden a network drive, it would be too slow, wouldn't handle junctions correctly, etc. These arguments break down because it has already been done: the feature has already been implemented on both Mac and Windows 3rd party tools. We can see ourselves how well or poorly it works. In general it works pretty well on local drives on contemporary hardware. Re network drives, it's easy to programmatically discriminate between network and local drives. One solution is only enable folder sizes for local drives. As on the Mac, another solution is don't enable it by default. Many users won't turn it on, so this lessens the impact. There are more sophisticated future solutions possible to optimize folder size query of a network server. E.g, the server maintains folder size info and reports it to the client, but these aren't needed as a 1st step. The lack of these don't preclude folder size working on local drives today. Proof of this is Mac and 3rd party XP tools work fine on local drives right now. With this in mind and considering Microsoft spent 6 billion dollars on Vista and several billion more on Windows 7, why wasn't folder size a basic feature of the Windows 7 explorer?

Sharename On Local Machine?? www.vbforums.com

Hi all,Does anyone know how to determine a sharename (UNC) given a file name on a local (fixed) drive.I am using the Scripting.FileSystemObject which works brilliantly for network (remote) drives but won't return a share name for local drives/files.(e.g. c:my documentsmyletter.doc)This is further complicated if only some folders on the local machine are shared.Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.Stu.

Hardware :: Making Use Of An Old Mac Mini Hard Drive? macosx.com
