This makes use of the Exif info stored within the JPEG image file, some of which is indexed by Spotlight, however see the Notes: section below. Here is a simple sample bash script to preform an action on any JPEG image files found in the working directory that was taken on a iPhone. Copy and paste the code below into a plan text file, without an extension, ...

If you have a backup of your iPhone on iCloud or another computer, you can restore from there. If you don't, you'll have to reset and setup as new.

You don't need to do this. OS X uses /Users/(username) instead. /home is there for compatibility. This Apple Support Document describes how Mac OS X handles multiple users. Your home folder isn’t actually named “Home.” It’s named with your user name. If your Mac has several users set up, each user has a home folder.

From Apple Support: iPhoto automatically imports all photo stream photos into your library so you can keep them permanently (...) Unless you disable "Automatic import" from the options, there is no need to manually copying them as they already are in your library. Also, adding them to iPhoto albums does not make additional copies of the pictures, just ...

Using the proper normal syntax of the command line version of the mount command from the command line or a bash script for a password protected SMB Share will require entering the password, by one means or another. However from a bash script or command line there is a way to access the stored Keychain password to mount the SMB Share without entering the ...

Safe to do this… C:\Users\Alex\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer ..\Logs\CrashReporter – 300 M Delete contents of - \Logs & \CrashReporter but to be on the safe side, preserve the folder hierarchy, just in case it wouldn't auto-recreate if needed.

Usually the apps like PhotoShop just come across with all the right licenses. However, sometimes you must contact the vendor if they have a draconian DRM policy where they are tied to a specific machine / OS. I'd be very concerned with Adobe if it was a new machine but I've done the upgrade "in place" for Creative Suite at least twice on my MBP 2010. To ...

This describes how to clone a drive using Disk Utility. In essence, you mount both drives on your system, select the new drive and choose restore, then select the old drive as the source and make a cup of coffee (500 GiB could take an hour or two, depending on you exact setup).

It seems that the windows.plist has been corrupted during the backup, as it's empty. The Terminal restores correctly when doing the following test: Run Terminal. Type anything like: echo test 1. Kill the terminal explicitly, e.g.: killall Terminal. Run again, it should have the previous message/state. Removing files and restoring from it, it'll have the ...

I'd have taken both machines up to 10.10.4 first using the combo updater - as it specifically includes fixes for Migration Assistant. Then I'd have followed the instructions rather than try it in target disk mode - you need to be running Migration Assistant on both machines, as you must authorise on both. I've successfully migrated two machines in the ...

If you are not afraid of using Terminal, you can run rsync -a --progress /PATH/TO/Pictures /Volumes/EXTERNAL/Pictures/

If there are hard limits, sorry, I don't know what they are however I have many exclusions set for Time Machine and one in particular has 294,691 files in it. So instead of doing it folder by folder try setting the exclusion from Options... in Time Machine under System Preferences. Plug in the external drive and then either drag and drop the parent folder ...

It seems it can be done partially. Basically the problem was that KeepAlive in combination with SuccessfulExit implied a RunAtLoad (the program was launched right at the start and not at the specified StartCalendarIntervall.) Setting the additional parameter AfterInitialDemand (which is undocumented) will change this behaviour and the program is first ...

Ok I FINALLY got this to work!! The alias solution mentioned above actually really helped. I tweaked the process slightly and looked at other references to get this to work. I'm using a WD My Cloud NAS drive to store iOS backups. Heres' what I did, step by step: Create a new folder on the WD external drive and name it 'Backup' Opened the Terminal app and ...

Another way is to do a second time capsule backup to the cloud. As long as you can specify the location "as a folder" to time machine, then you have time machine making 2 backups for you. I do 2 backups, one to the Airport Time Capsule unit and one to a different network drive. I know it is not in the cloud, but if you can do as I mentioned above, that ...

Though I have not used this product on a Mac, nor in this particular way, it should work. there is a product called Syncovery which will backup selected files to "FTP, SSH, HTTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Drive, Microsoft Azure, SugarSync, box.net and many other cloud storage providers". We use it successfully to copy backups from a local server to our ...

Question 1 The activation message doesn't mean it will do a factory restore, no, however it is possible that not all to the data will be retrievable even though you can see it. Question 2 If you cannot get to the Settings app, which you can't from what you've described, then without activation there is no way to use iCloud to backup. iTunes would be the ...

Well. You reached to the point where all these so called NASes already not work. During development I did a big data transfers to the nas via smb. For 1gb or 10gb it works, but when we speak about 100gb or 10tb smb implementation in OS X will not gonna work. It may be bugs in smb implementation in OS X or smb implementation in your NAS. Or in both. ...

You may write this script and it will work for not big number of files, but entire external hard drive backup to ftp server only using bash is a hard task. Because of possible connection problem, because of namespace problem. (Some file names on Mac ) may be impossible to store on your ftp server. If you backup small number of files ~100mb just zip them and ...

I know this is a someway old question/answer, but I'm re-doing this right now in Yosemite and I added a little fancy detail to this configuration: since I'm on Yosemite I've been forced to apply Benjamin's "root instead of sudo" way, it's currently working as expected, but I didn't like having an icon for the snapshot volume, something that you shouldn't ...

Yes, it is possible. The iPhone 4s can support the same versions of iOS as the iPhone 6 (see supported devices and Apple's iOS 8 information - see screenshot below from here) and both will run the forthcoming iOS 9, so it shouldn't be a problem restoring a backup from the latter onto the former. I've done something similar, restoring an iOS 8.x iPhone ...

Alternatively there are apps that let you download texts off, such as PhoneView by ecamm but I heard they stopped working in one of the most recent updates, so I would check the demo first.

Depending on how old the original MBA is compared to the new one, you probably won't be able to do a bare metal restore. What you can do, is do a fresh OS install (if not done already) and "Migrate Your Settings" from the Time Machine Backup.

The original-phone backup should definitely still be there, and be available. Perhaps you were sent back a replacement iPhone, running a slightly older version of iOS? If the backup is from a newer version of iOS than the target device, iTunes won't show it as an option. The best thing to do is to first double-check that the backup is there, by going to the ...

There are a few tools you can use to monitor file accesses but the two I'd recommend are (with their manual page descriptions): opensnoop - snoop file opens as they occur. Uses DTrace. lsof - list open files Both are shipped with Mac OS and should do what you need. You'll need to run opensnoop in a terminal session before you start your cloud backup (it ...

The only product that I know of that can handle binary files is an open source product called xdelta. I have used it on Linux and it has worked really well. However, there is a caveat and a big one - you must compile the application. This means you are going to have to become familiar with compiling files on OS X. This requires downloading the XCode ...

Have you tried HT201272 app store download ID incorrect (does not match settings ID)? (In short: Logout on your iPhone then re-sync via cable with iTunes)

You should check if iCloud backup is enabled on your device, open the Settings app, select iCloud, then select Storage & Backup.

So had a call with apple customer care as i want to get to the root cause and they have finally resolved this issue. They found out that somehow i had my old ipad backup on the icloud and it won't show up to me. They are able to see with the tools they are using. May be some bug. They escalated to senior apple experts. The senior expert called and said they ...

What to do when you do not have enough storage because your backup size is too large: Delete the current backup on your iCloud for that specific iOS device. Your iCloud backup is now automatically turned off, so turn it back on. A new backup is made and has a reasonable size. Theoretically your phone could crash in the short while you do not have a ...

My answer is based on My personal experience, so this may or may not be valid for you. Based on the information provided by you, it reminded me of a similar situation I had face sometime back. iCloud not back's up the recent backup data but also saves the backup files backed up before, As in, If I created a backup today, and then I created a backup next ...

An installed OS X can be specific to older models. People that administer Macs professionally call this situation "forked" and no one likes to be "forked" by surprise. Boot the new Mac to the setup assistant (or if you have made an account there already consider making a new test user account and backing up everything on the new mac that you need to save). ...

You have to make a backup of the loaner phone to have it available to restore on your repaired phone. You already appear to have done so on your phone, but if needed, steps described by Apple are: Make a backup using iTunes Open iTunes and connect your device to your computer. Save content that you downloaded from the iTunes Store or App ...

If you have two Machintosh HDs together, choose the second (indented) one. You may need to unlock it via the context menu. Then tell Disk Utility to create an image of the volume directly. In Disk Utility with the Macintosh HD volume selected, use New disk image on the toolbar or select New > Disk Image from "Macintosh HD" from the File menu. Bear in mind ...

The nature of Time Machine is such that it isn't an archival backup, as files deleted from the source drive will eventually disappear from the Time Machine backup set.1 If you have no other backup however, it might come in handy. If the sparsebundle can be repaired, you'd be able to extract files from it. Following the instructions in the first green box of ...

No you cannot. Apple makes you do a full system backup so they can get all your data saved to their servers. This means all apps and all app data are copied to your computer through iTunes and a list of all your files is sent to Apple secretly every time you plug in the iPhone to your computer. Also it is Apple's marketing policy to make advance users ...
