External drive permission problem

Hi Turchee.

 

If Ak's suggestion doesn't resolve the issue, I would recommend that you get another external hard drive and transfer the contents of your original external drive to it. Once you have a backup, open Disk Utility and use First Aid to repair the permissions on your original external hard drive.

Ideally you would have things set up so that starting iTunes with the external offline doesn't cause you any problems, and you would have a backup of your iTunes library and other important data on another drive. Syncing your iPod has no impact on the files on your computer. You add songs to your iTunes library. Whether or not you then add them to the iPod won't change how much storage is being used on the internal and external drives.

 

Check under iTunes (Mac) or Edit (Win) > Preferences > Advanced and look at the location of the media folder. Is where you think it should be on the external drive or has it been reset to the internal drive? If it is wrong change it back to your preferred location, consolidate the library (File > Library > Consolidate Files), then delete the now redundant media folder on the internal drive.

I switched to Safari and the problem went away. I don't use Safari because it always says I have 22 Facebook notifications, 19 Twitter notifications, and 4 Pinterest notifications – no matter how many I really have. But that's less annoying than having the fan run all the time. I'm going to consider this solved for the time being.

Looks like a good plan.  I would make the step 5 the first one, however. Disable "Optimize storage" before you consolidate any referenced images. After consolidating they might become optimized, if Optimize storage is still enabled.

 


On her Mac she has chosen a year ago for optimizing the local photo library.) How can I check if this proces is ready?



That is not easy, because Photos does not have an indication, how many photos are still optimized. The process has not finished, if you try to disable iCloud Photo Library and get a warning, that photos have bot been downloaded in full. If you are seeing this warning, cancel the sign-out of iCloud Photo Library.

 

You can speed up the download by creating an album with all photos and videos an then enable "Download Originals to this Mac" for this album.  To enable this flag, select this album with all photos in the sidebar, then ctrl-click this album, and click "Download Originals to this Mac".

It cannot, you cannot run an earlier version of Mac OS than what the computer shipped with. However there used to be a work around to this, however I don't know if it still works.  You could install virtualization software such as Parallels and install the earlier version in the virtual partition. Otherwise you cannot run it period!

Any SATA III (6 Gbit/sec) hard drive should work.  There are basically only 4 brands you can buy at retail (Seagate, WD, HGST, Toshiba).  I wouldn't necessarily recommend any one brand over another.

 

Using a solid-state drive was mentioned.  There are dozens of brands available.  There really isn't that much to differentiate different SATA III SSDs these days since they all seem to max out at about the same performance.
