Will all my files be saved on my Mac when I upgrade? Because I do not have an external drive.

Upgrading should not damage your content, however, it is strongly recommended that you make a current backup on an external drive just in case something goes wrong.  I have never had to use a restore but always have a backup just in case.

  • How to upload words, exel, PDF file from the pc via itune to the iPad, and where will the uploaded file be saved? In the apps?

    How to upload words, exel, PDF file from the pc via itune to the iPad, and where will the uploaded file be saved? In the apps?

    You will need an app (or apps) on your iPad that is capable of reading the documents, as they will be saved with the app - if you don't have such an app then there is nothing to transfer them to or to read/access them.
    One method of transferring them is toconnect your iPad to your computer's iTunes, select it's app tab, and then scroll to the bottom of it - you should the apps That you've got that are capable of file-sharing (if you've got any).  Selecting/high-lighting one of them should then allow you to add files to it via the box to the right of it.
    An alternative way to get the documents onto your iPad is if the app that you want to transfer them to has a wifi setting, which will then allow you to transfer the documents wirelessly. You can also send the documents to yourself as attachments and then use Mail's 'open in' facility to copy them into your chosen app.
    Edit : more info on file sharing from the manual :
    File Sharing lets you transfer files between iPad and your computer. You can share files created with a compatible app and saved in a supported format.
    Apps that support file sharing appear in the File Sharing Apps list in iTunes. For each app, the Files list shows the documents that are on iPad. See the app’s documentation for how it shares files; not all apps support this feature.
    Connect iPad to your computer.
    In iTunes, select iPad in the Devices list, then click Apps at the top of the screen.
    In the File Sharing section, select an app from the list on the left.
    On the right, select the file you want to transfer, then click “Save to” and choose a destination on your computer.
    Transfer a file from your computer to iPad:
    Connect iPad to your computer.
    In iTunes, select iPad in the Devices list, then click Apps at the top of the screen.
    In the File Sharing section, click Add.
    Select a file, then click Choose (Mac) or OK (PC).
    The file is transferred to your device and can be opened using an app that supports that file type. To transfer more than one file, select each additional file.
    Delete a file from iPad: Select the file in the Files list, then tap Delete.

    I installed elements 12 on a Win 8.1 computer and moved all my photos from my old XP machine.  I updated to elements 12.1.  Now, many/most of my photos will not open because I do not have "permission" to open the files.  How do I fix this so I can work with MY photos?

    Yes, the Old Master file has a folder for each year where I find all photos from that specific year. I am attaching a screen shot of the file.
    In the meantime i have managed to download all photos (it did not download any video files though in mpg, avi, 3gp, m4v,mp4 and mov format) to a new iphoto library. Unfortunately the photos are quite mixed and often doubled up. I ma considering to purchase iphoto library which checks all duplicates in iphoto. this will save me a lot of time. What do you think?

  • When upgrading to os x lion, will all my files stay in place or what?

    when upgrading to os x lion, will all my files stay in place or what?

    Yes of course, Apple knows a users files are valuable and won't just go deleting them .
    However, OS X upgrades can go bad due to unforeseen circumstances or special modifications people have done to their operating systems or even root level anti-virus installs like Norton.
    If the upgrade goes bad, your operating system can become "bricked", requiring a lot more effort to recover your files.
    Also third party programs like from Microsoft, Adobe and others may not be ready for OS X Lion, if you have any "mission critical" needs for the computer, it's best to wait several months, yes SEVERAL MONTHS, to make absolutely sure all the bugs are worked out of third party drivers, software, printers, scanners etc., and even OS X Lion itself.
    Always backup your valuable data, to write protected cd/dvd's if all possible for the reason that humans, even myself I just recently learned, can very very easily erase data on re-writable media like hard drives due to human error.
    TimeMachine is a somewhat ok image backup system, Carbon Copy Cloning of one's boot drive onto a external drive which is hold option bootable is great in case your hard drive dies, but for your most precious data, you really should be burning, labeling, dating and storing multiple cd/dvd's.

  • If I backup my iPad to my new MacBook pro will all the apps be saved?

    If I backup my iPad to my new MacBook pro will all the apps be saved?

    All of your content should be transferred to the new Mac when you sync. However, if you want to be safe, you can select the transfer purchases options, then sync the iPad.
    Read this article about syncing. There is a section in the article that states that all of your purchased content may not transfer over to new Mac when you sync. I have NEVER had that problem when syncing but the article does talk about transferring purchases just in case. Not a bad idea really ... better to be safe than sorry!

  • I have recently changed from a macbook to macbook pro and all my files were saved on time machine but some won't open. It says I need permission.. How do I open them?

    I have recently changed from a macbook to macbook pro and all my files were saved on time machine but some won't open. How do I open them?

    Are you trying to open the backup files via the Finder or an application?  If so, that's not how you should access your backups -- use the "Star Wars" display, per #15 in Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions.
    How did you get your stuff on the new Mac? 
    It sounds like you may have skipped the offer to transfer it when your Mac first started up, created a user account, then used the Migration Assistant app instead.  If so, that may be the problem;  doing it that way means you end up with an extra user account, and can lose permission to files on other volumes, especially backups.
    Please clarify just what you're seeing, and whether you still have the old Mac.

  • My Macbook is running on OS 10.5.8. However, I forgot my admin password. I would like to find out if I can use OS 10.6 CD to reset the admin password while upgrading OS? Also, will all my files be still present after upgrade??

    My Macbook is running on OS 10.5.8. However, I forgot my admin password. I would like to find out if I can use OS 10.6 CD to reset the admin password while upgrading OS? Also, will all my files be still present after upgrade??

    1. Should be possible to do that; go to the Utilities menu and select 'reset password' before starting the installer. (while booted from the DVD of course)
    2. Standard installation of SL only replaces system components; applications, user data and preference settings should not be affected.
    3. But you do have a backup just in case, don't you?

    I am now running on OS X Snow Leopard. If I upgrade to Mountain Lion, will all my files and data and bought programs disappear?

    As Austin Kinsella1 says, it's a good idea to check your program versions.
    I have found this site really helpful with that:

  • Since my G5 died I was thinking about getting a Mac Mini, but I have a ViewSonic Monitor (from 2004) and a USB keyboard and mouse - I also have the external drive tha downloaded my files on to. Do you think the monitor, keyboard and mouse will work on it?

    Since my G5 died I was thinking about getting a Mac Mini, but I have a ViewSonic Monitor (from 2004) and a USB keyboard and mouse - I also have the external drive that I downloaded my files on to. Do you think the monitor, keyboard and mouse will work on it? Would I have to get a hub so I could use the stuff I already have? Is that viewsonic too old to work on it?
    What else would I need? Please advise...

    Yes for keyboard and mouse.
    The monitor will work if it has an HDMI, VGA ir DVI input. If it only has a VGA input you will need this adopter

  • HT4914 My music is stored on an external hard drive. All music that I buy, whether from itunes or some other provider, automatically gets loaded onto my external drive. There is some music on my computer drive as well. Will match work in this circumstance

    My music is stored on an external hard drive. All music that I buy, whether from itunes or some other provider, automatically gets loaded onto my external drive. There is some music on my computer drive as well. Will match work in this circumstance?

    I followed all the instructions for consolidating my music into one folder on my external hard drive. (I'm struggling with this because my ext HD was renamed when I synched my iPod shuffle last night. The "E:" drive has now become the "F:" drive and all my songs have those dreaded exclamation points next to them. Exploring my computer, I found "My music" folders in two place on my C: drive and one place on my external hard drive... and the song list in each place is different.
    Argh.
    So... following the directions in the article reference here, I attempted to consolidate all of my songs into one folder on my external hard drive.
    But.. I checked the song list when the "consolidation" was complete... and MANY songs are missing. They're still on the C: drive, but don't appear to have been copied to the new folder on the ext HD.
    I would appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks so much!
    Edit: I tried to reassign the ext. HD a permanent letter, but my Control panel does not appear to offer the option of Administrative tools. Is there an easy way to get to this, as this seems to be the root of the problem?
    Thanks.
