    Icon? files

    File System definitely supports it as I've changed a few manually - the big thing is that I've already been through it (and it is a pain) and because the Icon files are still there I was hoping that there's some way of getting it to rescan or refresh them based on the directory contents to save...

    Icon? files

    Guys, Hopefully you can assist. I have recently switched all of my movies and TV Shows from a couple of Drobo disk arrays to a single Synology NAS. One unintended outcome of the data transfer was the fact that now none of my Movie or TV Show folders show their icons anymore. I have moved the...

    Error: I/o Error (bummers). (-36) On File

    Well - I'm not sure what's going on - It seems that the files are definitely ok - I have removed the ? from the names and was able to do that - the extended attributes flag is back on the files too. The file are definitely readable so there not corrupted or anything like that. One thing that...

    Error: I/o Error (bummers). (-36) On File

    I'm hoping it's not related to the drobo issue as that would be bad. That's exactly why I have the drobo, to stop losses like this. I'm not sure I've tried doing the SetFile locally to the file - it's always been over a remote mount. I'll try locally. The HFS+ filesystem is journaled so I would...

    Error: I/o Error (bummers). (-36) On File

    Guys, I'm trying to determine if this is actually a disk issue or not. All of my data is on a drobo disk array. So no single disk issues should cause a disk corruption. About 4 months ago I had a hard drive failure (well 2 actually over a few weeks) Both drives were replaced in situ and all...

    iScreen removal

    Guys, I need a bit of help. I have a mac mini that I use as a plex media server. Since installation it had a problem refreshing the screen via scrren sharing (it's a headless client). In the past I had used something called iScreen which I installed. Unfortunately this time it didn't...

    Disk Problems during backups

    I must admit, that didn't even dawn on me to be honest but I see the logic of avoiding that approach. It's been like it for about 7 months though with no issues. I guess a recent update may have made it less tolerant towards it or maybe the data dispersal is just causing enough irritation to it...

    Disk Problems during backups

    Hi Guys, Over the past few weeks I have been having issues with Time Machine. I have a 2Tb drive for time machine. One of the partitions that it backs up is a raid disk with 2 disks in the concat raid disk. One is a 1Tb Firewire device and the other is a 750Gb USB devcie. What happens is...

    Spinning Wheel - Pain in the ar$e

    Sorry for not getting back to you. The problem related to a process that was spinning. It wasn't using up all the cpu however it was spending most of it's time on memory ops. In relation to swap files or swap space - unless Osx is radically different, when a process starts an amount of...

    Problem with grep caused me to spot library issue

    Hi Guys, Being a Unix SA I drop to the command line a fair bit on my MAC. The other day I was trying to use grep to grab some stuff from a text file and I got the following message. admin-accounts-imac:~ Dave$ grep http /tmp/dm dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libpcre.0.dylib...

    Spinning Wheel - Pain in the ar$e

    Guys, Please help. I used to have grief in pages/numbers where the spinning wheel used to appear during normal usage (typing and stuff) and the way to get it to go away was to focus on another window and go back but it was seriously irritating. I stopped noticing it after a while (maybe...

    Filesystem Problems

    Guys, Got a bit of a problem, but not sure of the extent of the problem. Have a drobo disk unit with 2.7Tb of storage on it. Normally use this through the droboshare which makes it a nas device sharing two hfs+ filesystems over samba. Was in the middle of transferring some stuff to...

    Mac Mini hang during 10.5.7 update

    Guys, Not quite sure what to do. Installed 10.5.7 on my iMac and my Air with no issues. Was running the update onto one of my mac minis and it hung in the "Running Installer Script" bit. After an hour I decided to power cycle which it had no issues with. When I check the OS now it says it...

    Drobo and DroboShare

    Thanks for that. I think the thing that I found most frustrating about this whole thing was the lack of openness about the reason for the performance. I was playing devils advocate a bit with the support guy because short of them completely screwing up the samba config on the droboshare it had...

    Drobo and DroboShare

    Guys, Just want any comments really. I have had a drobo (1st Gen) for a while now and short of one problem that required a firmware upgrade I have had no real problems with it. I use it to house my media library (TV Shows and Movies) which I play through a couple of Mac Minis to various...

    USB Woes

    Satcomer, I haven't done this as yet as I'm trying to determine what it will do and what issues I might have after doing it. I'm also trying to figure out why this would have an impact on the usb bus. Can I ask what the reasoning is for the suggestion, have you had this issue yourself and...

    USB Woes

    I will try as I seem to have narrowed it down to one device. But if it works then I am still left with a problem in that the device won't work through a hub which makes it pretty much useless. Also it was running through a hub for several months without any issues so I ask myself what has...
