Maybe a little bit different issue, but I also had a huge chunk of Space Occupied By Other Files And Folders On Hard Drive on my external disk. I found the culprit by using OmniDiskSweeper with root priveleges, as explained here. That means: sudo /Applications/OmniDiskSweeper.app/Contents/MacOS/OmniDiskSweeper In this case it was files in the trash bin, ...

This is not a bug, although I can certainly see why it looks like one. That little symbol is a pipe ( | ), not the letter I. The pipe is the upper character on the backslash ( \ ) key. So to type ⌘-|, the physical keys you need to press are: ⌘-Shift-\. The difference between "|" and "I" was more pronounced back when Lucida Grande was the system font (in ...

As @daGUY spotted it is a pipe "|" symbol. But you can change it to the old short cuts.or any other that does not clash, by using the keyboard shortcuts in system Preference -> App Shortcuts. But note: I could not get it to pick up if I assigned new shortcuts to Preview.app (Show Toolbar & Hide Toolbar ). In the end I assigned the ⌘ + B for both to ...

This is probably a bug, or you've changed it yourself. Report to Apple and look with them. You can change this by going to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Application Shortcuts and add what you want, you will have to type the exact thing such as "Show Toolbar". I can't see for myself if it's a mistake on Apples part because I'm ...

You could try this fix: In Finder use the Go to and go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/XPCServices In XPCServices Folder and move the com.apple.dock.extra.xpc file to desktop. Then go back to the activity monitor and force quit the process and test! Source: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4263912 user jximo 07

You can enter the username and password of the local administrator account at the login window you are seeing. The local administrator would be the user account that was created when first setting up OS X on the MacBook and is not associated with any network account server. Once logged in to the local admin, open System Preferences, click on Users and ...

There is a replacement program and a temporary fix. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203787 I gave an answer here to the same problem. http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/168576/91609

This issue can also manifest itself when you go to the Firewall Options and Block all incoming connections is enabled.

There seems to be no way to make Preview.app do this, but Skim offers this feature. On my system, using pdflatex, Skim will 'jerk' for a split second as it reloads, but it does return to the right position on the current page.

Reinstalling Eclipse solved the problem for me.

In 10.7.5 the bug is still there! And yes, it's a bug because it isn't consistent. E.g., Ctl-tab-opt to mail, up pops finder. Ctl-tab-opt to Safari, nothing happens.

I had the same problem, it was solved after I quit BetterTouchTool.

It is sorting numerically. An eight digit number is always going to come before a nine digit number. It is a feature of Finder, so that Something10 shows up after Something9 and not before Something2, provided that all of the "Something" is always the same.

For OS X 10.8.5, the method below works well enough for me to stop looking for a better solution. The file modification has survived reboots, but it might need to be reset after Apple updates. Edit this sandbox profile as an admin: /usr/share/sandbox/quicklook-satellite.sb Add the file type deny rules at the end and save: (deny file-read* (regex ...

Go to "Settings", then click on "Displays" & change the Resolution to "Best for display", mine was stuck on "Scaled" after I had it hooked up to the TV. Personally, I think 1440x900 looks best on my laptop, but if you click "Scaled" then 1024x640 the general font will get even bigger.

I ran into this problem recently while attempting to install a Mountain Lion VM on my Mac Pro (10.10) using VirtualBox 4.3.2. I was trying to follow the instructions here, but I got stuck in the EFI boot sequence. I attached a screenshot, but I think its where you got stuck too. I tried the same process on my macbook pro laptop (with the same iso), and ...

You can try boot your mac in recovery mode (hold command+R while booting), open Terminal, and running fsck to rebuild the btrees that hold the information of your files and directories structure. To rebuild the catalog btree: fsck -d -r /dev/disk0s2 Rebuild extents btree: fsck -d -Re /dev/disk0s2 Rebuild attributes btree: fsck -d -Ra /dev/disk0s2 ...

Ok, so I kept googling and found a solution (with some modifications due to OS updates, see below): How to delete an account for a now unused ftp server from finders "connect at login" list I did the same thing except the option is now in "System Preferences" under "Users & Groups" (select the relevant user and go to login items).

Just hold the ⌘ button down, click and hold on the item you wish to remove, and drag it off the Finder’s window. Additionally you should try Go → Connect to Server (⌘+K). There you must see a list of your favorite servers. If your server is there, you could select it and hit Remove in the bottom of that screen.

Agree with Tetsujin about doing an SMC reset. I recently had the same issue - I had hard-powered-off the computer in the middle of booting, and my system would then just remain black-screened at boot. Resetting the SMC brought everything back to normal (able to do Recovery Mode, Choose Boot Disk or boot from internal drive as usual). However, for me to ...

All I can think of that you may have missed in the 'standard suite' of things to try first would be Reset SMC... Shut down the computer. Unplug the computer's power cord. Wait fifteen seconds. Attach the computer's power cord. Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on the computer.

I'm no expert on computers, but I was having the exact same problem. Went around all the forums trying to find a way to fix it and nothing worked. Then I realized that my firewall was turned off. Once I fixed that poof! no more problems.

Also: tmutil calculatedrift machine_directory gives you an overview of the sizes differences between each consecutive backup. It is useful to pinpoint when exactly that happens, and which backup you should compare with: sudo tmutil compare <backup1> <backup2>
