even though I have selected them in my preferences:

What is going wrong here and how do I fix it?

azure automation – Adding multple folders with Add-PnPFolder impossible in a Runbook

I have a simple code to add a couple of folders to a SharePoint Site library. Locally is runs smoothly in seconds, but in a runbook the same code runs increasingly slower, resulting in getting the runbook suspended. Looking at the error messages, it seems that somehow it even goes into a loop of repeating commands. Max. 3 folders are created. In Azure and local I have the same module ( PnP.Powershell 1.2.0)
Any tips very welcome.

$dcSharePointRootUrl = ""
$SiteUrl = "13Test"
$credential = Get-AutomationPSCredential -Name "XXX" ;
$targetSite = $dcSharePointRootUrl + $SiteUrl
Connect-PnPOnline -Url  $targetSite -Credentials $credential 
$targetFolder =  "/sites/"+ $SiteUrl + "/Shared Documents"
Add-PnPFolder -Name "Technical proposal" -Folder $targetFolder
Add-PnPFolder -Name "Procurement" -Folder $targetFolder
Add-PnPFolder -Name "Engineering" -Folder $targetFolder
Add-PnPFolder -Name "Commercial proposal" -Folder $targetFolder

Error messages:

data synchronization – How to sync folders outside of the usual OneDrive sync folder?

I am setting up a OneDrive account on my Mac (macos 10.15.7). The OneDrive local folder is at ~/OneDrive/. I would like to sync other folders as well, e.g. ~/Music/, ~/Documents/, etc. OneDrive for Windows 10 has this feature built-in, but of course this is lacking on the macOS version. (OneDrive will not allow your sync directory to be your home directory.) Are there any tricks to get these and other locations to sync here on the Mac?

(FWIW I do have “Premium OneDrive” through my Microsoft 365 Family subscription.)

Windows update made VirtualBox VM disappear and now I can’t enable shared folders or second screen in Ubuntu

Today I had Windows 10 update itself. I use Windows 10 as the VirtualBox VM host. When starting VirtualBox after the Windows update, I noticed VirtualBox didn’t show my VMs anymore!

With the help of I managed to re-add my main Ubuntu VM.

However, after booting the resolution was ridiculous 640×480 or 800×600, very small. Practically unusable. The guest no longer resized when I resized the window. I managed to make the display larger by manually changing the resolution in Ubuntu guest, but it was a herculean effort as the display was so small the full “Settings” dialog didn’t fit to the visible display.

I also noticed I cannot mount my shared folder. I also couldn’t enable my second monitor.

How can I restore auto-resizing, shared folders and second monitor?

design – What is the best way to organize the folders and files in my web project?

I’ve been doing technical studies in web design for a while. I have developed several web pages, however, I have not published any.

This year I plan to publish my first website. I would like to know how should I order the folders and their various files (index.html, scss, js, multimedia, child web pages) in the best and most optimized way.

Also, I would like you to give me some recommendations on the structure of folders AND / or other topics.

Please and thank you.

root access – Recovering specific files and folders from Galaxy S6 edge plus

i have a rooted and factory deleted Galaxy S6 edge plus, from which i want to extract/recover specific files(with specific extensions).

All the “common” software only searches for documents, pictures, messages, contacts etc.

The problem is that i have used a media hider software HD SMTH/Hide something

this saves the files in a .pg directory(i dont know here) and also changes the extension into .pg or something similiar(check link).

Can someone help me get my nuclear photos and videos back even though i have done a factory reset? any help would be much appreciated <3

sharepoint online – Default views for list folders isn’t working in new experience lists

I’m trying to set up a folder based list where the top level of the list will only contain folders of a custom type “Incident” and the incident folders will contain other types such as “Action” etc.

I have this set up but the automatic view selection isn’t working. I have created two views:

  • Incidents – set to show in “Top-level” and is set as the default view
  • Actions – set to show in folders of type “Incident” and is also set as the default view

I want it to automatically switch between those views when I go from the top level to the “Incident” level but it doesn’t. It just stays at whatever I last set it to and both views are available in both the top level folder and the incident folders.

Our site is configured to use the “new experience” and if I change the list to use the “classic experience” instead of the default one then this part works.

I don’t want to use the classic experience because other parts of it don’t work well for what we want and also we need to be able to use the list from Teams which seems to use the new experience regardless of the setting in the list.

Is there something that I am doing wrong or is it a fault in Sharepoint?

permissions – Unable to delete folders or files in SharePoint site linked to a Team

I am unable to delete folders or documents in a SharePoint library that is linked to a particular MS Team. When I click on the ellipses of a folder or file the delete option is not there (it is there for other SharePoint/teams libraries).

I have checked to see if there are any files checked out and there are none.

I have managed to delete the folder by going into Classic SharePoint view and the deleting via the files tab. But I am just confused as to why I couldn’t delete them in the normal way. I have checked the settings for the site and can’t see anything out of the ordinary.

Any help would be appreciated!

command line – Check if an app can read certain folders

AFAIK MacOS restricts newly installed apps from reading many folders without user permission. I know these permission are listed under System Preferences->Privacy->Files and Folders

But, is there a way I can verify these permissions are actually enforced? Like can I open a shell with the same permissions as a specific app? Kind of like su - nameofapp?

I ask because I just installed the Amazon Kindle App from the MacOS App Store. I looked in ~/Library/Containers/ and see this

❯ pwd
❯ ls -l
total 0
lrwxr-xr-x   1 gregg  staff    19 Jan  7 21:01 Desktop -> ../../../../Desktop
drwx------   2 gregg  staff    64 Jan  7 21:01 Documents
lrwxr-xr-x   1 gregg  staff    21 Jan  7 21:01 Downloads -> ../../../../Downloads
drwx------  33 gregg  staff  1056 Jan  7 21:19 Library
lrwxr-xr-x   1 gregg  staff    18 Jan  7 21:01 Movies -> ../../../../Movies
lrwxr-xr-x   1 gregg  staff    17 Jan  7 21:01 Music -> ../../../../Music
lrwxr-xr-x   1 gregg  staff    20 Jan  7 21:01 Pictures -> ../../../../Pictures
drwx------   2 gregg  staff    64 Jan  7 21:01 SystemData
drwx------   2 gregg  staff    64 Jan  7 21:01 tmp

Apparently the app has made links to a bunch of folders. How can I know if the app is actually prevented from accessing those folders via the links? I have not given the app any permissions and would just like to verify that these links are not away around the permissions.
