What method is used to transfer files from Android to Mac? Specifically files other than photos /videos/music, e.g. sound recordings,text downloads,contacts vcf file, etc.

There should be no problem transferring other files using Android File Transfer

mac – “Other” folder is too big

My “Other” folder in my mac taking every free mb it has. Note that I tried to find where it coming from but I just can’t figure it out. It’s 418GB big and I have nothing on my machine that is so big.

macOS Catalina v10.15.4

macos – Saving a filename with a special character in Mac?

I’m using a MacBook Pro with Catalina 10.15.7 and keyboard is set to UK English.

I made a folder, mytest on Desktop, and the file test.html with CSS.

The character in question is https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+002F

I can use the character in HTML with no problems, but for filenames it’s a bit more of a problem.

It’s a test file, so not for public viewing or usage and wouldn’t be in production files anyway.

I’ve done some light Google-ing, but would appreciate the help as I’m not sure; the only reason for this is simply to learn a bit more about something that I’ve learnt in HTML (characters / unicode).

Can I name a file with the unicode solidus with the name test/mytest/2021.html ?

mac – Unknown compression scheme with wine

I’m trying to run a game through steam on wine, but I’ve been unsuccessful with implementing the workarounds. There’s one error that keeps showing repeatedly, namely when trying to use a .reg file and when trying to register .dlls with regsvr32. It’s always the same filepaths and the same output:

/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.60.1/Common/ChunkCompression.cpp:49: Error: unsupported compressor 8
/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.60.1/Libraries/CompressData/CompressData.c:353: Error: Unknown compression scheme encountered for file '/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/Exceptions.plist'

What is this error, and what can I do to fix it?

Mac OS X tiger not installing on iMac G5 late 2005

I’ve tried pressing/holding down c,x,control,alt,command and everything, and it still hasn’t worked. I’ve tried downloading even the ISO of the disk that came with it, and it still hasn’t worked. I’ve been trying for two days, is there any solution to this?

mac – MacOSX Big Sur – Terminal ZSH Shell Command’s Execute Sometimes With “!” Exclamation Symbol In Front

!str Refer to the most recent command starting with str.
this is the history expansion behavior.
type

man zshexpn

and check ‘Event Designators’, you will get the answer

An event designator is a reference to a command-line entry in the history list. In the list below, remember that the initial `!’ in
each item may be changed to another character by setting the histchars parameter.

   !      Start a history expansion, except when followed by a blank, newline, `=' or `('.  If followed immediately by a word designator
          (see the section `Word Designators'), this forms a history reference with no event designator (see the section `Overview').

   !!     Refer to the previous command.  By itself, this expansion repeats the previous command.

   !n     Refer to command-line n.

   !-n    Refer to the current command-line minus n.

   !str   Refer to the most recent command starting with str.

   !?str(?)
          Refer to the most recent command containing str.  The trailing `?' is necessary if this reference is to be followed by a modi-
          fier or followed by any text that is not to be considered part of str.

   !#     Refer  to  the  current command line typed in so far.  The line is treated as if it were complete up to and including the word
          before the one with the `!#' reference.

   !{...} Insulate a history reference from adjacent characters (if necessary).

data synchronization – Contacts and calendars only sync from iPhone to Mac, not Mac to iPhone

When my friend syncs their iPhone over USB with their Mac, contacts and calendar entries they create on their Mac are not copied to their iPhone, but contacts and calendar entries they create on their iPhone do get copied to their Mac. How can we get this data syncing bidirectionally again?

This data used to sync in both directions correctly, but stopped doing so around the time they updated to iOS 14.4.2 (it may very well have started before the update; they first noticed about a day after updating). It’s hard to tell when exactly it started exhibiting this behavior because there’s no error message when they sync. The behavior we do observe is that once the sync gets to the calendar step, it sits there indefinitely until the sync is cancelled. If we turn off calendar sync, it gets to the contacts step and similarly sits there indefinitely until the sync is cancelled.

They do not use iCloud. They’re running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 and sync using the Finder. They use Apple’s Contacts and Calendar apps on both their phone and computer. “Sync contacts onto iPhone”, Sync “All Groups” is selected, and “Sync Calendars onto iPhone”, Sync “All Calendars” is selected.

We’ve tried booting the Mac into safe mode, but this appears to completely disable whatever Finder component handles iOS syncing. We also tried performing a sync while streaming the AMPDevicesAgent logs, but when the sync hangs, the logs just show a bunch of “sending Ping for device” and “got Ping message for device” messages with no errors until we cancel or disconnect the phone.

Something strange we noticed that may or may not be relevant is that in the Finder sync settings, the box for “Add new contacts from this phone to ‘ALC Board’” is checked (this is one of their groups in Contacts) even though they never chose it. However, when they try to pick a different group for the destination, it only shows a list containing their other groups but not the All Contacts folder. If they uncheck this box, and click Apply, after syncing the box comes back checked (sometimes a different group name will appear). I am unsure whether this is relevant because they can sync from their phone to their Mac.

Similarly strange, in the settings from Calendar sync, the ‘Do not sync events older that — days’ is currently unchecked. However, originally it was checked and set to 730 days. When they set it to 0, it was supposed to transfer all calendar entries from Mac to phone, but it did not (and did not show an error message).

Thank you for your help!
