Where are these unix executable files coming from and how do I recover the original text file?

where are these unix executable files coming from and how do I recover the original text file?

When you upgraded to Lion did you have AppleWorks installed on your mac?
Most of the AW documents can be opened by Pages 09 or Numbers 09 with most of the orginal format in tact. (I do not know if previouse verision will work) just open the AW file with both and see which one works best.
Text Edit will also open most of the AW files as well but will require a lot of work to restore them to their orginal format.
If you have AW Database documents then they are not supported. 
These document show up as "exec icons", Kind: Unix Executagle File.
They also will show up as .cwk file if they are small files. I have a couple that were under 1mb that are shown as " Kind: AppleWorks Document" but will not open.
The only option to open AW database is to have AW installed on a mac with a pre-Lion OS to recover the file.

  • Where did these extra base stations come from and how do I get rid of them?

    I had my wirerless network all set up and running great and then these two random base stations showed up in the AirPort utility and now my internet won't work. My AirPort extreme wont even show up. How do I get rid of them?

    Ok, I got my station to show up but I still can't get on line. Does that little red "1" mean that that station is the default now? Anyway, I still need to get rid of these other ghost stations. Please help : (

  • I had to restart my mac and couldn't remember my password and had to create a new keychain, help?? i just want to stop all these pop up screens coming up now, how do i retrieve my original password?

    i had to restart my mac and couldn't remember my password and had to create a new keychain, help?? i just want to stop all these pop up screens coming up now, how do i retrieve my original password?

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you're saying? Have you gained access to your mac, but getting pop-ups about your old password? If you have access, you could always copy important files and reinstall OS X from scratch. Also you could use the Mac as an external hard drive if you have another Mac doing the same. Those are probably the easiests ways. If it was easy to just go ahead and change passwords as so, security would be an issue. How is your computer locked? Is it a filevault password, or how much do you have access?

  • I downloaded an Adobe file from my email but cannot find it on my hard drive or in recycle bin - it's in downloads but am unable to open from downloads - how can I recover the file?

    I downloaded an Adobe file from my email (service provider is MWeb) but now cannot find it on my hard drive and it's not in the recycle bin. It does, however, appear in Firefox downloads but I'm unable to open it from there. How can I recover the file?

    Thanks Rob.
    I actually had no clue what the core problem was caused by. So it's Windows itself...that helps some.
    I'll resubmit there. It might actually have saved time for it to simply have been moved to there instead of off-topic, though I suppose you have to follow protocol.

  • How do I recover the original jpg photo files from my computer? They are embedded in the iPhoto Library and I cannot see the actual file.

    I am trying to locate the original jpg or photo files that I uploaded from my camera. I know that the photos are there, because they show up in my iPhoto Library. Where can I go to find the original file ex: DSCN1242.jpg or OLM4564.jpg ?

    Select the photo in iPhoto and use the command "File > Export" and set the "Kind" in the Export panel to "Original". That will write a copy of the original to a folder you can access in the Finder.
    The command "File > Reveal in Finder" will show you the original inside the iPhoto Library, but you must not access the files this way. If you access them from other apps using the Finder, you will corrupt your library.
    See Terence Devlin's user Tips:
    iPhoto and File Management
    How to Access Files in iPhoto
    To what purpose do you need to find the files? Is there a problem and iPhoto giving an error message about missing originals?

  • There are 13GB "other" data that I cannot account for that simply did not exist before the update. Where is it coming from and how can I get rid of it?

    After the update, 13GB of "other" data mysteriously shows up on my phone when it tries to sync; It's literally more than half the available space on my phone. I've deleted SEVERAL apps (including the apps it tried to sync from my iPad), I've removed most of my music and videos.
    I can account for the rest of the data on the phone EXCEPT for the 13GB of "other".
    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Yes, I have the same 13 GB "other" after updating from IOS 4 to IOS 5.
    I posted the follow-up question, which is:
    What can I do about this? Can I clear it without doing a restore?
    If I do a restore, can I then re-install my apps and music from my iMac?

  • Can I delete TV videos that I have purchased from I Tunes if they are backed up on my I could and how do I access the vedios on my I cloud

    can I delete the TV videos I purchased from I tunes from my iPad as they are save to the cloud so it frees up some space on my I pad air.  If this is the case then how can I access these videos?

    Hey KKnoeck,
    Should you decide to rewatch the episodes you've deleted, you may be able to re-download them as detailed in the article linked below.
    Download past purchases
    Alternatively, should you have access to a computer, you can also transfer purchases from your device to your computer, then delete them from your iPad.
    Re-download or transfer your iTunes Store purchases from an iPhone, iPad or iPod to a computer

  • Safari browser version you are running does not support community tool bar. what's that mean and where is it coming from or how do I get rid of it ?

    I keep getting the message "Safari browser version you are useing does not support community tool bar." Where is this coming from and how do I get rid of it ?

    That toolbar/ct plugin causes problems for all who install it!
    Close Safari, then locate and delete the following files and it should be gone:
    /Library/Application Support/Conduit
    /Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg
    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
    /Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit
    where / is the root library on your Hard Disk.
    If you are running Snow Leopard you should also look here:
    Library/Application support/conduit plugins
    Note: Safari does not support any third-party toolbars except those supplied as an extension to Safari via the Extension Gallery.

  • Why are white lines appearing in images in PDF files but not the original InDesign files?

    Hi folks!
    Let me just start out by saying that I'm not a graphic designer and have basically no experience with graphic design programs, aside from the little futzing around I've tried to do with InDesign. My company (which publishes a monthly magazine) has decided that it would be a great idea to get the files to our magazine from the graphic design firm that actually handles the production end of things so that we may offer back articles, etc., and modify them as needed. Somehow I've gotten assigned the task of handling this. However, I've encountered some problems along the way. The graphic design firm uses Quark, we own InDesign (CS3) and use Markzware to convert the files. Most things seem to work okay in this arrangement but I'm having problems with the images in the file when I create PDFs. Although the images look fine in the InDesign files (and are of print quality), when I create PDFs of some files, thin white lines appear over the images in the PDF document. I asked our graphic designer about this but she has no idea, and she isn't very familiar with InDesign.
    So, my question is, where are these lines coming from and how do I stop them from appearing? As a reminder, I'm not a graphic designer and am fdairly ignorant in design software terminology. If you're kind enough to try to help me with this problem, I'm going to require an explanation in plain English. Basically explain it to me like you would to a 10 year old.
    If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!
    Thanks in advance,

    I think Bob was typing too fast and meant to ask if you were distilling, not to tell you distill.
    Distilled PDF (you get distilled by printing to PDF rather than exporting) always flattens transparency, which is what makes those white "stitching" lines.
    You can make the stitching disappear on screen by turning off smoothing in the Acrobat prefs, and it shouldn't print on a press, but it sounds like you may be doing the output on a digital machine and it's likely to show on the lower resolution output.

  • How to export the original raw file?

    I have read a few threads about this but have not seen the answer.
    The original file from my camera (.PEF) now exists only in the Aperature library. I want to export a copy to my desktop so I can do some special processing with Pentax software. How do I export the original .PEF file? (Exporting Masters only gives me processed file types like TIFF and JPEG.)

    Export Version gives you a processed file such as a TIFF or JPEG.
    Export Master will give you a copy of the original RAW file.
    Please double-check that you used the correct export command...
