Simply drag the folder to the desired position in the sidebar. This adds the folder to the sidebar in every current and future Finder window, as well as Finder Open/Save windows/sheets. Removal is done by dragging the folder from the sidebar out to the side.

You are at the same location, namely your root: "Mac1 Sys". You only expanded the folder contents, you did not move into that folder. It is annoying to others as well ;) I solve this by cmdmouse-dbl click on the folder and move to icon view (cmd1) In my opinion Finder is old and needs some updating...

If you simply put numbers (for the months) in front of the folders names they will be sorted. If you prefer then use the Folder Action and Automator to do that automatically, for the folder containing the sub folders with the months names (numbers).

Generally without jailbreaking the device, no. Apple makes it quite difficult to access the filesystem of your iOS device - whether attempting to navigate directories on the device directly, or remotely from your computer. However, there are certain programs recently made available which enable one to do so. For example, iFunBox is an iOS file management ...

This is strange behavior, but you might try checking Disk Utility. Load Disk Utility and look in the left sidebar. See if any DMG files are listed there. If they are, even if unmounted, click the DMG file and then the Eject button in the toolbar. If Eject is unavailable simply select the image and press the forward Delete key (Fn-Backspace on laptops). This ...

Finder doesn't decide this - it is a flag saved with the file. The app saving the file sets or clears this flag. You can do a Get Info on a file to toggle this setting on a per file basis.

You won't be able to run Repair Disk on a Windows NTFS filesystem, and NTFS volumes cannot be indexed by Spotlight unless Paragon NTFS or Tuxera NTFS have been installed because Spotlight needs to write its index files to the volume. I suggest you move these movie files to an HFS+ volume, either to the local HD, or to an external HD formatted with HFS+. You ...

I just created the script and then saved as an APP. I then added the app to my toolbar. That way which ever window is active becomes the front window. This does not require that AppleScript be running.

Over years of using OS X search tools (Spotlight, Find, Smart Folders), all of which, I believe, use the collected file metadata in various ways and having gotten a fairly good idea what various combinations of search terms might find I am still often unable to successfully retrieve every file I think my search should find. At one point I began to ...
