#30 | can i run the Terminal Command to stop Snapshots with no problems?

i am somewhat surprised to find out that the 75 GB of "Backups" that are taking up space on my MBP may be due to some "feature" in Mavericks or the new OS's or whatever and i have had to MOVE all my data off my laptop as a consequence of this over the last two months because i have no more space on my Hard Drive.
is it legit and OK to follow the terminal commands in #30 without having any problems?
i am on a mid 2009 MBP running Mavericks and i have a 2 TB Time Capsule that i am wirelessly backing up my data.
as some kind of sadistic test in advance of running this terminal command - can i plug my laptop into the Time Capsule, unplug the laptop from the time capsule, restart and see how much space got recaptured on my HD for my data?
i mean, well - i must be missing something but i mean i am hoping i can get this to stop so i can get my data back on my laptop. i'm walking around with an external HD of all my Mac Pro information just so i can get work done when i go to a coffee shop or something.

for those suffering through this:
In Terminal:
     sudo tmutil disablelocal
Turn off local Time Machine snapshots and trigger automatic cleanup of accumulated local snapshot data. Requires root privileges.
(use sudo tmutil enablelocal to turn back on)
this got rid of my 75 GB backup file (!!) and now i am going to move my data back to my laptop...
not sure if there is an apple tech article to link to regarding this issue but it would be good to post if there is one.

  • How can I run the C program which will interact with user

    hi, all
    I wanna run a C program whose function is that just show a line of characters, waiting for user input and finally show what user has entered. The C can run correctly in command window. But when I use Runtime class, it can not run correctly. My question is that how I can emulate that C program just by invoking Java method. The code I have written below, thank.
          String command = "cmd /c a.exe";  // a.exe is that C program
          String s;
          try {
             Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
             InputStream input = process.getInputStream();
             BufferedReader bufferedReader =
                new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(input));
             while((s = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null)
          catch(IOException e) {
             System.err.println("IOException: " + e.getMessage());

  • How can I run the report for different input values at the same time?

    Reports version: Report Builder
    Oracle version: Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release
    I want to run the same report for different input parameter values and spool each o/p to different file and ftp to a server. For this, as a first step, I am spooling different input values in to a file, reading those values through a loop and calling the report for that input values. Each report run/execution is taking 15 minutes. Total report execution is taking approximately 4 hours (assuming 16 different input values) to complete. So I have to wait 4 hours to see ALL outputs.
    I would like to run the report parallel for ALL the input values and I should be able to see the ALL outputs with in 15 or 16 minutes.
    In my shell script, I added & symbol at the end of the report call to start/run the job in the background. Due to this the control passed to the next step after the report call. At this place I have an ftp command to send the output file to a different server and it is giving error some thing like “o/p file is not available/created yet". This is due to the fact that report writer is NOT yet completely started/initiated or it is NOT completed the spooling.
    How can I run the report at the same time for all the input values and save the time?
    Thanks in advance.

    Increase the number of server engines running right now it seems there is only one engine running ,increase it to 4 or 6
    and then atleast 4 or 6 reports will run simultaneously.
    For FTPing the output add to your sript to check whether it is locked and if not then only try to ftp .
    Also for more better functionality read the document (chapter 15 ) for 10g reports for its new fuinctionality.

    ??First of all, you're not even calling the Happy Holiday one. If you want it to do something, you have to invoke it.
    And by the way, in your comments, you mention that in one case, a new process is created. Actually, new processes are created each time you call Runtime.exec.
    Anyway, if you want the output from the processes, you read it using getInputStream from the Process class. In fact, you really should read that stream anyway (read that URL I sent you to find out why).
    If you want to print that output to the screen, then do so as you'd print anything to the screen.
    in notepad HelloWorld.java, I can see it is opened,
    but in Java, not.I have no idea what you're saying here. It's not relevant whether a source code file is opened in Notepad, when running a program.

  • Help:How can I run the J2EE Client Application? Thanks

    Help:How can I run the J2EE Client Application that will access the remote J2EE1.4 application server which runs on another host computer?
    I have developped a stateles senterprise java bean name converter and deloyed it in the j2ee1.4 application server on the host machine A. The converterbean provides the remote home interface and remote interface. At the same time I have developped the j2ee application client named convertappclient. When I access the conveter bean at host computer A through the script 'appclient.bat' as 'appclient -client convertappclient.jar', the client can access the bean sucessfully. Now I want to access the bean through the script 'appclient.bat' at host computer B,what files should I copy from host computer A to host computer B;and what the command line should be like? Thanks!
    The following are the code of the enterprise java bean and it's home interface .
    The client code is also provided.
    The enterprise java bean:

  • Running a terminal command in xcode

    Hey guy and gals
    I had a question for the xcode experts out there. I'm new to using xcode and to objective c. The problem I'm having is I'm trying to tell my program to run a code that terminal uses. Of course xcode throws back errors. How do I tell xcode to run the terminal syntax code so that I can get this program running?

    I started with a Cocoa App. Let me try and explain what I'm trying to do. It might shed some light on my problem. I'm trying to write a program that runs this code with a click of a button.
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

    killall Finder
    normally I open up a terminal and run the code. Works great. Well my wife is in the hospital with preeclampsia and I'm not leaving her side. since she is here till our son is born or if she can make it to 34 weeks so the doctors can induce. shes at 31 weeks 4 days.
    anyways I decided to give myself something to do while we sit around all day. shes not aloud tv do to the risk of seizures. So i thought to myself why don't i try to write a program that when i click the button it will run the code automatically and then when im done reverse it. Since i dont want my hidden files shown all the time. So I'm trying to tell xcode to run this code in the background and display hidden files then when I click hide hide the hidden files.

  • What are all the 'Terminal' Commands?

    I use Terminal for fun with the commands and the killall argument command but i really want to know all the terminal commands so that i am not that bored. I always use the commands i know but they are getting old so please help.

    The commands are be scattered around the hd.  A command is any file with the execution bit set on.
    The best way to go is to go to your local library and find any book on unix or bash.  There will be some difference between what you read and what is available in X.  the man command should key you in on the differences.
    A book on Bash would be helpful.
    Here is the book that I use:
    Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly))
    This is also good & was in my local library.
    Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming, A (2nd Edition) [Paperback] the book Don't be fooled by the name, the second addition includes Mac OS X.  
    Advanced Bash Script. premise: Examples for everything. I have revision 6.2.
    BASH Programming - Introduction HOW-TO
    Apple administrative commands
    Apple Shell Scripting Primer
    https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/OpenSource/Conceptual/Shel lScripting/ShellScripting.pdf
    Check you local library. Any book on Bash syntax will do. There will be minor differences but they will not be great.
    Sometimes you can get a good deal on used books in Amazon.

    HI Andy,
    Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Sort-Object DatabaseSize -Descending | Format-Table Name, DatabaseSize, AvailableNewMailboxSpace
    THis will give you the following info:
    Where availablenewmailboxspace (last collum) is white space.
    Please mark as helpful if you find my contribution useful or as an answer if it does answer your question. That will encourage me - and others - to take time out to help you. Thank you! Off2work
    Thats not the true amount:
    Since 2010:
    How can I check whitepace in a database?
    You will need to dismount the database and use ESEUTIL /MS to check the available whitespace in a database. For an example, see
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996139(v=EXCHG.65).aspx (note that you have to multiply the number of pages by 32K).
    Note that there is a status property available on databases within Exchange 2010, but it should not be used to determine the amount of total whitespace available within the database:
    Get-MailboxDatabase MDB1 -Status | FL AvailableNewMailboxSpace
    AvailableNewMailboxSpace tells you is how much space is available in the root tree of the database. It does not factor in the free pages within mailbox tables, index tables, etc.  It is not representative of the white space within the database
