Entourage is verifying and wanting to rebuild my database?

Entourage says it can't find my database, is verifying and wants to rebuild my database.  Is this okay?

Hi Ruth, I think I'd quit it for now.

  • IPhoto 08 exclamation points due to referenced photos.  Have reverted back to Managed, trashed problem images, and want to rebuild library or create new library.  However, Originals folder contains aliases of deleted images.

    1. Will broken images in Originals folder hinder making a backup copy, rebuild, or other attempts at repair?  I have Time Machine, never used it, and don't know when when iPhoto became referenced library (due to bad advice)  2. Is it OK to delete broken aliases from the Originals folder (white squares with arrows, jpeg tags, and a Quicktime logo)?  3. Would it make sense to select undamaged images in the Orginals folder for copying to a new library?  I am cleaning up Events and exporting healthy photos from iPhoto before trying to copy the entire iphoto library folder.  Thanks for your help. 

    What do you mean by "broken images"?
    Never delete anything from the Originals folder, ever.
    Try
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

  • My wife and I have two different accounts with apple, and want to share a database.

    Let me start by saying that we both just moved from under a rock and started using Apple and Itunes. 
    I have a 4S she has a 4.  We both created an account before using Itunes.  I set up itunes on our home pc (XP) without thinking about her wanting/needing to share the pc for syncing and loading music to our phones.  I dont want to plug her in until I am sure we wont mess anything up. 
    Is there a way we can use one pc and two different devices with two different accounts without a divorce.  The majority of cds were hers, so i'm already on her bad list

When problem not resolved i also copied that email db file in other Mac book with 200 GB free space but same process first verify then rebuild then message it cannot rebuild. Please guide.

    I've been rebuilding Entourage Identities for years for clients. Most fail because they do not have enough free space. See this article

  • I have upgraded to Lion, and want to upgrade my iPhoto 8.1.2, but when I try it says it was not purchased at a MAC Apple store, which it was.  Then it asks if I want to buy 9.2.3, and I say yes. It responds with Product Distribution file can't be verified

    I have upgraded to Lion, and want to upgrade my iPhoto 8.1.2, but when I try it says it was not purchased at a MAC Apple store, which it was.  Then it asks if I want to buy 9.2.3, and I say yes. It responds with Product Distribution file can't be verified. Maybe damaged or not signed.  How do I get this fixed, so I can download the new iphoto's that are available.

    How did you move your iPhoto library to the new system?  the recommended way is Connect the two Macs together (network, firewire target mode, etc)  or use an external hard drive formed Mac OS extended (journaled) and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity from the old Mac to the pictures folder of the new Mac - launch iPhoto on the new mac and it will open the library and convert it as needed and you will be ready move forward.

  • How do I restore playlist folders from iPod classic to iTunes? The library is intact, but the playlists are not and I don't want to rebuild them from scratch!

    After reformatting my HD and reimporting all songs back into iTunes succesfully, the playlist folders are gone and I don't want to rebuild them from scratch. How do I restore playlists from iPod classic to iTunes 11.1.3 without resorting to 3rd party options?

    I actually tried that in "my computer" by renaming the drive and then got this:
    g-raid (F:) (H:)
    then after reading your reply realized I should try renaming it in "disk management" and hey! it worked.
    Thanks a lot for the advice.
    Now I don't understand why my back-up drive isn't automatically adding the files when I import into the Ex-HD but I'll figuree it out.

  • Error in verify and rebuild

    I've got an XServe RAID with 14 drives. They are configured as two RAID 5 sets, merged into one in the OS.
    The RAID is online, but when I do verify the parity data on one of the sets in raidadmin, it comes back with an error event. When I try to do rebuild parity in raidadmin, this also completes with an error event. Before the rebuild, I tried a repair in diskutil, which reported no errors. I've copied the event messages below. Any idea what's wrong or what I should do to fix it?
    (Note: there seems to be a bug in raidadmin that always labels the raid sets as set #1 in the verify and rebuilt events, although the operations are taking place on set #2)

    I have the exact same issue here:
    over the course of several months there were a variety of drive errors of the kind that should not matter, i.e. amber messages, that were recoverable.
    A couple of days ago, one drive failed, and the hotspare took over, was automatically rebuilt. The rebuilding reported that data was lost during the rebuild operation. I think "***!" This is a single drive failure, and the whole point of these being "intelligent" storage sub systems is that they should instantly let me know with a RED alert, if any error happens that requires a hardware component to be replaced, or that for some other reason puts data integrity in danger.
    So then I run rebuild parity on both arrays (RAID-50 setup), and even the drive that had no non-recoverable drive failure can't finish the parity rebuilding!
    So there I have a single drive die since I last completely reformatted and created the RAID-50 array (both at the Xserve and the Mac OS X level), and now I have to fret about our backups which are stored on this RAID?
    This comes utterly out of the blue, and I have to wonder what I'm going to tell my clients about what we can use the Xserve RAID for in the future!
    The unit is a bit over two years old, and we had one drive fail previously, and since Tiger redefined the RAID-0 software array, and things were a bit iffy, when that happened, we reformatted and set up everything from scratch.
    Now we're back at the same place, again. This isn't what I consider fail-safe storage, and hot-swap components.
    On the other hand, if we're supposed to replace drives with each non red alert error, then in addition to the failed drive, I'd have to replace four more, which would mean almost half the drives would have had to be replaced in a bit more than two years. At the cost of Apple's drive modules, that's quite a bit.
    Further, most drive manufacturers offer two or three year warranties on the drives, but Apple's Xserve RAID has only a one year warranty.
    At this point, I don't know if the Xserve RAID is still a trustworthy backup target. And if not that, then what is?

  • Hi, I want to rebuild my g/f's lost itunes as a surprise. What is the easiest and stealthiest way to buy tracks via my macbook for her itunes?

    Hi,
    I want to rebuild my g/f's lost itunes as a surprise. What is the easiest and stealthiest way to buy tracks via my macbook for her itunes? To be clear I don't want to buy her vouchers I want to buy the songs myself. I don't have access to her itunes account and to ask would give the game away. I don't want to own or listen to the songs myself but I struggle to think of an approach that doesn't involve some sort of piracy.
    She currently has zero tracks having lost them all so the only thing I can think of is starting an entirely new account in her name and filling it and then giving it to her on a hard drive. Is this the best way to go about it?
    Many thanks,
    Andrew

    There is no really good way to do what you want. Any tracks you purchase via your own iTunes Store account are for your personal use, tied to your iTunes Store account, and can't be given to anyone else. If you don't want to gift the tracks to her and can't access her iTunes Store account, the only option other than creating her a completely new iTunes Store account (which will require a new email address for her) is to buy the CDs those tracks are on.
    Regards.

  • Have entrourage and want to use Mail. Can't get it to work.

    I had a macbook and purchased the Microsoft office for Mac which included Entrourage.
    I have now purchased a new macbook Pro and want to begin to use Mail rather than Entrourage. 
    I have Entrourage on my new computer but i can't get it to transfer my information to the the Mail program
    I am on Charter.net at my office and sbcglobal.net at home.
    How can i get this to work.  I can receive on Mail, but i can't send.

    check your outgoing port settings and make sure it's using a specific port and not the default port, also you might want to check to see if it is using SSL, TLS or any other encryption.  Verify the setting from your old machine setup.

  • HT1386 I have a new iPhone and want to purchase a ringtone on iTunes.  It keeps asking for answers to a question that I did not set up and don't have the answer for.  How do I get pass this dilemma?

    I have a new iphone and want to purchase ringtones from itunes.  Itunes is asking answers for security questions I did not set up and I can't answer them.  How do I get past this to be able to purchase.  I can purchase songs on my MAC and sync but itunes doesn't give the option to purchase ringtones on the MAC, just the iphone.

    If the email hasn't arrived after a few hours and isn't in a spam filter, you need to ask Apple to reset your security questions; this can be done by phoning AppleCare and asking for the Account Security team, or clicking here and picking a method, or if your country isn't listed in either article, filling out and submitting this form.
    They wouldn't be security questions if they could be bypassed without Apple verifying your identity.

  • My ipod was set up on a Mac. Now I have a PC and want to sync my music on iTunes, but I can't without reformatting my drive and losing my music.

    My ipod was set up on a Mac. Now I have a PC and want to sync my music on iTunes, but I can't without reformatting my drive and losing my music. Help. I no longer have a Mac. I want to keep the music and videos I purchased. Since it is an iPod classic (80GB) I cannot even use the iCloud. Is there a way to move my ipod's music so I can reformat it to my pc?

    WIndows is asking you to reformat the iPod's hard disk because it's probably in the Mac OS X Extended Journaled file system format which the Windows OS can neither read or write to.  Reformatting will erase all content from the device and rebuild the filesystem as FAT32 unless you specify it as NTFS (which you shouldn't do).
    If you want to be able to use your iPod to copy music from your Mac to your PC, you'll need to either pre-format it as FAT32 using Disk Utility on your Mac and then copy everything over to your PC, or use third party software such as XPlay that allows a Windows PC to read and write to a Mac formatted iPod.
    Perhaps you could take a look at this article for other ways to copy your iTunes library and files from your Mac to the PC.
