The Mac Finder offers a variety of methods of merging two folders contents together into a single directory.
This can be a little confusing at first glance, but after a bit of practice you’ll understand a bit more how the feature works and how you can use it to merge directory contents with files that share the same names together into a single folder, entirely by using the OS X Finder. The Finder will move the source files into the destination folder and rename them automatically so they do not overwrite one another. Because of the naming convention of simply appending a number to the end of the source files being copied, perhaps a better option is to first batch rename the file contents of one folder, and then just drag and drop the newly renamed files into the other folder. Admittedly, the way Finder handles this is a little confusing at first glance, but it works as advertised. I use Keep Both often, and I also use Batch Rename often which I think, as you outline, is a better choice.
If you have two folders with identical names at two different locations, you can merge them into a single folder.
Hold down the Option key, then drag one folder to the location that contains a folder with the same name.
The Merge option appears only if one of the folders contains items that are not in the other folder. What I want is a way to merge folders, automatically skipping the files that are already in the destination.
Too often I end up having to abort the entire copy because of one dupe, or else replace the existing dupe(s) with exact copies, which takes a long time and monkeys with modification dates. We have just started having a problem on our PC server that when people go to overwrite a folder it won’t let them.
Users of Microsoft Office for Mac have probably started to wonder if the folks at Microsoft forgot about them.
The report comes through Chinese site cnBeta, via MacRumors, in the form of some leaked images showing the Office for Mac release timeline, showing that the beta version of the office productivity suite saw undisclosed beta testing towards the end of 2013 and all of this year. Office for Mac 2015 timeline release leaked slides that show it coming in Q1 or Q2 next year. We’ve not seen an update to Microsoft Office for Mac since the 2011 version came out in late 2010. We also learned the new version of Office for Mac 2015 will bring a significant overhaul of Microsoft Outlook, the company’s personal information management tool that includes calendar, email, tasks and contact organization.
The Apple Mac App Store already lists Microsoft OneNote for Mac, which gives users a free and somewhat limited version of the note-taking and information organization tool.
Here’s a few other enhancements Office for Mac users can look forward to enjoying in 2015.
You can easily change the login screen wallpaper in OS X El Capitan to any image of your choice.
For those who have customized the login screen in OS X Yosemite, you’ll find the task is similar, whereas performing the same action in OS X Mavericks is quite a bit different. This modified a system file, meaning you should backup OS X before beginning just to be safe. First, ready the new wallpaper image file: Locate a large resolution picture of the image you wish to set as the new login screen wallpaper, be sure it matches your screen resolution for best results (it will resize to fit either way).
For the example here, I picked a screen capture of Manhattan as taken from the really nice Apple TV screen savers for Mac. You can verify and see the change by bringing up the Fast User Switching screen, accessing the lock screen, rebooting, or logging out of the Mac. Interesting, the file should be there if you have changed the wallpaper at some point in OS X (the general wallpaper, since that is what is used by default). When I put my iMac to sleep & lock it, it uses my desktop wallpaper and blurs them… WTF? Okay, now how do I replace the apple that shows up (before I get to the desktop) when my Mac boots?
It worka fine on a iMac but after a reboot it’s changed back the dull grey pic again.
Caches is really not the best place for this kind of function, there must a original pic somewhere in the system. Users can also choose to install the update through iTunes and a computer, or manually with firmware files. Watch out with this, Beats Radio Apple Music ?MUSIC or whatever it’s called, is free for only 3 months. Where exactly would you expect a control for it to be, other than in the same settings pane every OTHER Automatic Renewal is managed with? So Beats1 radio is basically all rap and weird pop music, target audience is suburban and urban 13-24 year olds I guess? Will someone at Apple start to sack the idiots that are now in control of iTunes and the music app they are make a right guck up of the whole system.
I have an issue with the fact that music that I have had is some how gone I had over 2700 songs on it and now I have 2400 where is my music and why is it that I cant find it anymore tried to reapply it from my computer and it wont let me help please I just want to listen to my music that I already paid for once will not buy into the Apple music ever. The iPhone has quickly become the go-to digital camera for many of us, storing thousands of memories and moments in images.

When the device restoration is finished, you can now copy the pictures from the iPhone to a computer so that you have your photos again. Picturescue works with any version of Mac OS X that is 10.6 or newer, and works flawlessly with Mavericks. I downloaded and tried the product and although I back up everything maniacally, the app showed only backups from 2013 and one from 2014- a few days ago.
I made “erase all content and settings” to my iphone6 then I restored data from icloud from another iphone4!
Unfortunately I recognized that I didn’t backup my pictures on my iphone6 and they were lost ! So I recently deleted all my photos off my iOS 7 iPhone 4 so they can now all live in the photo stream. Sinario 1: I got a new laptop, but my iTunes library is empty, and I want my iPhone music to sync.
Sinario 2: Recently, I had an issue with my iTunes, which ended up deleting my entire library.
The latest version of iTunes has re-added the sidebar and made some other user interface changes designed to make using the app a bit easier to navigate. INSTEAD, look for the tiny little icon that looks like an iPhone next to the little dropdown menu in the iTunes menus and tabs area. This video walks through the process, including demonstrating that when you click on the sidebar items of your devices, you don’t actually select them. This is a curious user interaction that has thoroughly confused a few casual iTunes users in my family, so it undoubtedly is confusing to other users as well. When you search an album or artist in the search field and then you change the view on the sidebar, the search result is being wiped away! If you go to your music, album view, and control click on an album it is there at the bottom of the menu.
In fact I prefer the songs view and had no idea that command could be moved on the album view.
You forgot to say it’s a committee of 5 year old who think everything has to dumb downed to the lowest common denominator, and all user choice removed.
What does this update add, absolutely nothing,mwhst it does is remove user choice, you can longer have a choice over the time for recently added, you have no choice but to use the side bar if you want anything near the usability of the previous version. I’ve of course noticed the strangeness you described, but I appreciate your idea of just ignoring the side-bar devices. Except the annoying drop down menu they now make you use to choose different types of content. I have an IP6+ and i need to search some musics on the device, simply not works, forcing to look all the music to find an specific i’ve looking for.
What in the HELL happened to the iTunes programmers to screw up a good display so badly in these recent versions? Aha – a 3rd restart of iTunes while the phone was plugged in allowed the iPhone Settings window to appear.
The naming convention is rather basic, it simply appends a counting number to the end of the files coming from the source. For Mac users who are more advanced, turning to the command line and using ditto to copy files between directories is another excellent option, or even using ditto tomerge directories in OS X.

Much room for improvement when merging folders together in Mac OS, where OS X 10.11 is the same.
Merge seemed to work but now I am worried that as one of your co tributary said it won’t merge at deep level. Fortunately, now it looks like a rumored Microsoft Office for Mac 2015 update will finally coming sometime in the Spring of 2015. It’s started to look very outdated, and users wondered when Microsoft would finally bring the user interface in line with the latest version of Office for Windows or OS X  Yosemite. This will impact the appearance of the login window when you boot a Mac, and also when you are using fast user switching to change user accounts.
Use your own picture, a family picture, artwork, or browse through wallpapers to find something fitting to your preferences.
Good to know that it sounds like you can control the blur or not blurring by adjusting permissions!
I used to have another logo there, which gradually went away when I updated to Yosemite and El Capitan. I’d like to ask if there’s a way to have a different image showing up every time I log in? The version most prominently features the inclusion of a redesigned Music app with the Apple Music service, a streaming music and radio feature with a separate monthly fee. Using IPSW files to update is not particularly complicated, but it is generally best reserved for advanced users. The whole interface is now very cluttered and harder to use, what happened to the fast forward option on a track, that if you can find a single track and not just have the whole album play.

Punctuation makes things readable, like your comment, which is not even clear if it’s a question, or just a rant, or a wonder.
But if you lose an iPhone, it becomes broken, or succumbs to water, you may be left with a situation where all you have is an iPhone backup file and no direct access to the photos. Of course this relies on you actually backing up your photos, but unless you went out of your way to not do so, you probably did.
Easy, works for both Mac and Windows PC’s, but yes it requires access to another iPhone. This can be done through a complicated database extraction process similar to retrieving text messages, but a better solution is to use a super easy third party app.
Picturescue will instantly scan the backups available upon launch and show a date and thumbnail previews of all the images found, offering a number of the total amount of pictures that can be pulled from the backup file, in this screenshot image there are over 7000(!) pictures found in the backup file alone!
If you know of a good Windows equivalent app to restore your iPhone photos from a backup file in a similarly easy manner, let us know in the comments! Of course not everyone has a Mac (unfortunately), so that’s not an option for everyone.
Due to certain issues I tried to recover them by restoring my back up before I deleted off my phone. I still had all my music, movies and apps on my iPhone, but iTunes can’t sync back in the other direction. If you click on the sidebar icons of the iPhone or iOS device, it drops down the media for the device playlists, but it doesn’t select the device itself.
Yes, I know that sounds weird but you need to completely ignore the device in the sidebar sidebar which clearly shows your device, this will not allow you to select your iOS device in iTunes. Hopefully they never need to restore or do a backup because they wouldn’t know where to begin. It’s one more unnecessary step when you could just put little links or icons in the upper left corner there instead of a drop down menu.
The sidebar is for playlists and management of iPhone and iOS devices like to select them, manage media, etc.
Not only do they continually change their already ridiculous interface, they make it less intuitive! I HAVE seen the iPhone settings appear in iTunes 12, but whatever I did, I cannot repeat it. They compounded the problem with the release of Office 365, which gives users an online version of Office that users can enjoy along with a subscription to either the personal version of Office 365, which lets users install the suite on one machine, or the more complete version that gives users installations on up to 5 machines plus the mobile versions.. Many hoped the company would release a Retina version of the MacBook Air, but did not this year. The wallpaper image that is replaced is what sits behind those login locked screens, which by default is a blurry version of the active desktop picture wallpaper. But your iPhone music is always in Apple Music, open the Music app on the phone, listen there. The good news is, as long as you have regular backups made of your iPhone, you can probably recover the photos.
So long as you have backups handy, either approach will work, but you’ll need to use whichever approach is most appropriate for your situation. I lost a load of photos of my kids today when updating to iOS9 and have no way to retrieve them (restoring my backup doesn’t retrieve the photos for some reason).

Most of them go to the cell phone store and then get a new phone, that is good for Apple stock, bad for the consumer. Realising that, it is perfectly logical that clicking your iDevice should show the music on the device. When people want to quickly watch a movie or listen to a song, this could get pretty annoying… especially for people who use iTunes a lot. I have over 9000 songs on my iPod and having to scroll through them all to find one song is annoying. A Retina-enabled version of the office suite will make it look better on those Macs with super high-resolution displays. For example, if you have another iPhone handy or just got a new iPhone to replace a missing one, use the traditional restore method, whereas if you only have a backup file with no phone, you’ll need to use the third party app solution. Image Capture is rarely ever mentioned anywhere, but it’s a great app for importing photos, or scanning.
Do I have to disable my photo stream before restoring my iPhone for in order for it to put those photos back on my phone?
I tried using an old iphone but itunes doesn’t give me the option to restore my saved backup from my current phone onto this old one.
It should have stopped there, but instead it became where everything under the sun gets swept.
