Problems such as yours are sometimes caused by files that should belong to you but are locked or have wrong permissions. This procedure will check for such files. It makes no changes and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem.
First, empty the Trash, if possible.
Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it, then copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
find ~ $TMPDIR.. \( -flags +sappnd,schg,uappnd,uchg -o ! -user $UID -o ! -perm -600 \) 2>&- | wc -l | pbcopy
Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.

  • HT3275 Since updating OS to Mountain Lion from leopard, I get the following error message when trying to backup with time machine on external drive.  Could not complete backup to media share.  The network backup disk does not support the required AFP feat

    Since updating OS to Mountain Lion from leopard, I get the following error message when trying to backup with time machine on external drive.  "Could not complete backup to media share.  The network backup disk does not support the required AFP features."  What are AFP features and how do I get Time Machine to backup to my current external backup?

    This means that your NAS does not support the required encryption. Update your NAS to the latest firmware or ditch it and buy a Time Capsule (they are the most reliable when using TM).

    Had hard drive renewed due to product recall (iMac) backed up complete system on time machine .

Need to free up the space that the ghost file take up so I can drag drop from ex drive onto harddrive

    Here's the scoop, new friend.....
    When you boot into Time Machine you'll get the same OS X Utilities screen as you would if you booted into the Recovery HD. So, from there go into Disk Utilities to erase/format your internal drive. After that's done, back out to the OS X Utilities screen and select the restore option. Just follow the prompts to select the TM back up date you want to restore from and where to restore it to. Pretty straight forward.

  • IPhoto cannot import your photos because there was a problem writing to the volume containing your iPhoto library.

    Ive read a few threads, but nothing that showed what I'm experiencing. I had this issue prior to updating to OS X Yosemite. My iPhoto was working fine until recently. So I thought by updating to Yosemite it would fix this error, but it still continues. Any suggestions?

    It was previously used on a PC so it's formatted for Win NT Filesystem.
    That is your exact problem - by default the Mac can not write to a Windows NT disk so you must have had third party software that allowed you to writ to it and that software is not compatible with Yosemite
    and in any case it is always going to be a problem since
    it must be Mac OS Extended (journaled)
    When the if library is on any other format you will have spotty performance ad often it will not work at al - you must put it on a properly formatted drive - either a new drive or use Disk Utility to totally erase and reformat that drive - this may be a problem since you have no place to put the data on that drive while you reformat it
    Is your backup drive formatted Mac OS extended? And does it have room to temporary store the files from your Windows NT drive while you reformat it?

  • When tried to update my itunes to 10.5 I got this message: There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

    I got the iPod touch, when i went to connect it to my computer to upload my music to it, It said that I need to upgrade to 10.5 but when I did I got the message below. So I tried uninstalling itunes and quick time and I cant download it at all and still get the message below. I have NO itunes on my computer now.  =(
    The message I get is::
         There is a problem with the Window installer package. A program required for this intall to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package venfor.
    I have no idea what this message means or what to do....

    There is a problem with the Window installer package. A program required for this intall to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package venfor.
    Perhaps let's first try updating your Apple Software Update.
    Launch Apple Software Update ("Start > All Programs > Apple Software Update"). Does it launch and offer you a newer version of Apple Software Update? If so, choose to install just that update to Apple Software Update. (Deselect any other software offered at the same time.)
    If the ASU update goes through okay, try another iTunes install. Does it go through without the errors this time?

  • IPhoto crashes when trying to restore from Time Machine

    Yesterday I did a clean install and then upgraded to Snow Leopard. Prior to wiping my HD I backed everything up on Time Machine. I had over 5000 pics on iphoto and only want to bring back some. Every time I select a photo and hit "restore" I can hear the computer start working and then iPhoto "unexpectedly quits" I was and still am using iPhoto '08. Any ideas as to why this is happening or how I can recover my photos?
    Thank you,
    Mark

    Welcome to Apple's discussion groups.
    I've seen people report having success restoring their entire iPhoto library from a Time Machine backup by using the Finder.
    If you use the "more options" link in this discussions group's search box and use the search term "iPhoto AND restore" (without the quotes), you'll see a number of results, including this one:

  • There was a problem connecting to the server when opening Chrome or Evernote

    At one time I had an external network drive that is now dead.  I have remove it from the login items and the Finder list of recent servers, but whenever I open Chrome or Evernote I receive a series of "There was a problem connecting to the server" messages. Eventually the messages stop and both Chrome and Evernote work normally.
    I've looked at the Chrome and Evernote settings and preferences and I cannot find any setting that tells them to connect to the old network drive.
    I've also used the Console app and when the error message comes up I see...
    11/18/14 2:44:38.023 PM NetAuthSysAgent[419]: DNSAddressResolver:Resolve CFNetServiceResolveWithTimeout failed
    11/18/14 2:44:38.024 PM NetAuthSysAgent[419]: ERROR: AFP_GetServerInfo - connect failed 64
    Any ideas on where to look and how to get rid of this?

    I understand you are getting unable to connect to server error message on your printer. I would first unplug router and printer for about 1 minute. I would plug router up first then printer. I would then try to enable web services. If not successful and you get same error message. I would follow these steps.
    1. Obtain your printer's IP address
    a. This can be done by pressing the wireless icon on printer.
    2. Enter the printer's IP address in a browser.
    3. Select the network tab at the top of the page.
    4. On the left select networking.
    5. Select Network Address (IP)
    6. Select Manual DNS Server
    a. Manual Preferred DNS should read 8.8.8.8
    b. Alternate DNS Server should read. 8.8.4.4
    7. Select apply you might get a warning just select okay.

    I am unable to import all photos to IPhoto on computer.  At a certain photo the following message appears:  IPhoto cannot import your photos
    because there was a problem downloading an image.  How can I circumvent this particular image and import all other photos?

    I'm having the same issue.  i have imported everything but the offending photo from my iPhone.  problem is, with over 5000 pics, i have no idea how to find THAT ONE pic that won't import (bc I just get a greyed out pic image - with no data in iPhoto)
    any idea how to get "date taken" info of THAT ONE pic out of iPhoto (or any metadata) so I don't have to search 3 years of pictures?
    and I do apologize for hijacking.

  • I am trying to upload my photos to iphoto. I keep receiving a error message that say "Iphoto cannot import your photos because there was a problem downloading an image" What do i Do?!

    I am trying to upload my photos to iphoto. I keep receiving a error message that say "Iphoto cannot import your photos because there was a problem downloading an image" What do i Do?!

    Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS.  So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :
    - What version of iPhoto.
    - What version of the Operating System.
    - Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.
    - History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?
    - Are there error messages?
    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.
    - Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?
    Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.
    As a Test:
    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?
