    With the amount of information you've provided it's impossible to offer a potential solution.  We can't see your computer so we need to know some details of your problem and setup, i.e.:
    what version of iPhoto are you using?
    what system version are you running?
    what fixes have you tried?
    where is you library located?
    did you apply any updates or upgrades just prior to the problem occurring?
    are you running a "managed" or "referenced" library?
    what type of Mac?
    how much free space on your boot drive?

    From your backups. By doing a clean install you erased your startup volume. You may have installed OS X, but your personal software was erased. You can restore from backups if your have them. If not, then you've lost it all, permanently.

  • I just pressed the wrong button to erase of my IMac, how can I get back all information from my computer ?

    I just pressed the wrong button to erase of my iMac, how can i get back all information ?

    Possibly through a data rescue service (can cost a four-figure amount) if you didn't have an external backup.
    But you must stop using that Mac immediately, or your data will be over-written.

  • How can I get Back all of my data after restoring and back up ? I lost my data and I did back up

    when I did restore and update .. I lost all of my data , then I pressed to back up buttom , when I try to restore data , its disapper . is there anyway to get back all data lost ?

    If you are backing up to your computer, check iTunes/Edit/Preferences/Devices, if there are nay other backups listed.
    Since each backup replaces the old one if not used to restore from, your data might be lost since you seem to have backed up a phone without any personal data.
    Check this article about how to restore from backups:

  • How can I get back all the factory channel strip presets?

    Hi Guys
    I have deleted some of the channel strip presets in Logic 8, is there any easy way of getting back all the original factory ones?
    Cheers,

    Hey there,
    Thanks for the quick reply!
    Once I find them, do I just drag them into a specific presets folder on the Mac? (if so, which folder?)
    Or can the installer be run just for the channel strip presets?
    I don't want to end up with duplicates by mistake, either!
    Thanks again,
    Mike
    Yes, you drag them over.
    Roght click on the installer packages on the DVDs, and click on the "show package conte4nts" button. This will open the installer package, then navigate until you find the presets. If you have several DVDs, it may take time to get to them, but they're there.
    You'll have to place them in your drive here :
    Macintosh HD / Library / Application Support / Logic /
    That is where all the presets are found. You might have to enter your admin password to copy them over.
    Cheers

  • How can I get back all of my family videos from the iTunes monster?

    So here's the thing.
    Over the past few years I have accumulated a whole heap of home videos as well as movies, TV episodes etc. etc. which has grown and grown to the point where there was no more space on my 60GB hard drive.
    So I go out and buy an 80GB video iPod so that I can store the videos on that.
    I go through the extremely lengthy (3 days) and frustrating process of converting all my files to mp4 using Videora converter and load them onto iTunes and then onto my new iPod. I then click 'Manually manage songs' in my iPod options so that I could delete the videos from my computer, and have them still on my iPod. This was about a week ago and since then everything has been fine.
    When updating my iPod this morning, I manually ejected the ipod once my new music was added, only to find that the ipod now contained NO VIDEOS! As it turns out, the iPod automaticaaly reverted to 'automatcally manage files' without my prompt.
    So now whilst I have the files on iTunes, they cannot be found as they have been deleted and they are no longer on my iPod. Is there ANY way that I can get them back? Anything at all? System restore or something?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if you mean restore an backup from an earlier iphone then it ask you or you can manually choose restore
    if you mean apps located in your itunes library then you check the apps you want on the iphoen in the apps tab when you have it connected to computers itunes

  • How can I get back all the favicons in my bookmarks?

    I reset Safari because it was running slow, and I just noticed that I lost all the favicons for the websites that I bookmarked and stored. When I click on the website, that individual favicon comes back and stays next to the web address in my bookmarks...
    But I was wondering is there something that I can do to bring back all the favicons of my bookmarked sites in one step?
    Thanks,
    Mylesaway

    HI,
    But I was wondering is there something that I can do to bring back all the favicons of my bookmarked sites in one step?
    Sorry no. Next time you reset Safari, make sure "remove all website icons" isn't ticked.
    Keep in mind, webpage icons can take up hard drive space and slow Safari down.
    Tip... to make sure you have a backup, from the Safari Menu Bar click File/Export Bookmarks. Save them to an external source so that if you have problems with your Mac, you can Import back them in at a later time.

  • After automatically updating when I turned on the computer, Firefox erased all my History from the end of September until the update yesterday; how can I get back all the searches in my Show All History?

    When I opened Firefox and it automatically updated yesterday, all my search history from then back to the end of September was wiped clean from the "Show All History." I very much need that search history, which is essential for my research. I didn't bookmark it because I knew it would always be there. But it's not. Please help.

    Firefox tarballs from Mozilla Org use prefs within Firefox for updates. The "toggle" for not automatically updating - '''app.update.enabled''' and where to look for updates - '''app.update.url'''. The first needs to be '''''false''''' and the second could be a '''''null''''' string, do an update can't be found.
    ''I use both prefs to keep Firefox from updating by itself. I install each new version of Firefox as it is released, and keep the older versions around for reference purposes. Those prefs are the same since Firefox 1.5 came out.''
    The versions of Firefox that are part of an operating system installation usually are that OS's own build of Firefox, and don't use the same update setup as Mozilla uses, in most cases. I am not familiar with Cent OS, but Ubuntu and Debian look for Firefox updates and from their own program repository servers outside of Firefox - as with the tarballs from Mozilla.
