Need help to free up space for MacAir

I use a MacAir provided by my boss, it once belonged to another employee, but the employee resigned and just handed the Mac without deleting his account. I'm the designated for this Mac. I found a way to remove the old account of employees. Everything has disappeared. Only my name is remaining under users. However, when I search all the files in the MAC always displays the previous employees of the files that are really huge files and I need to remove them, however, there is no delete/compress/move to trash option and they cannot be moved to the trash. How I came to this topic? I searched the forums but I do not have an answer. I tried to use the terminal, I could see the name of the previous user, but that's all I had. I'm not very techno on these animals. Help, please. Thank you.

I'm more familiar with older versions of the OS, but it was when you closed an account that it bundled up all the user files in an image of large file archive in a directory of deleted users.

Ideally, you should really completely wipe and reinstall everything on a used computer.    Post of February 2016 LINC Davis on the restore computer to new information about installing OSX condition - -.

  • I need help to install adobe flash for my G5 mac

    I need help to install adobe flash for my MAC OS X 10.4.11, I visited site and its telling me to upgrade my adobe flash, I really need help.

    Flash Player should be installed ONLY from the Adobe Web site.

    Here you can check which version of Flash player you have actually installed:

    You can check here: to see what version you need to install to your Mac and OS. You must first uninstall any old version of Flash Player using uninstaller from here (make sure you use the right pair!):

    and also that you follow the instructions carefully, as all applications (including Safari) closed first before installing. It is strongly recommended that you perform a permissions repair after installing anything from Adobe.

    Can someone help me to reassign my data partition? I was trying to dual boot my computer with windows 8 and linux, but I failed miserably a year ago.

  • Need help with the port forwarding for a XBox remote Streaming

    I have a router R6200v2 and need help with port forwarding.

    I came across this set of instructions for setting up stream port forwarding XBox remotely from anywhere

    I have no idea when it comes to such things and I want to make sure I do it correctly without messing up my existing home network.

    Port Forwarding and triggering Port pages setup look very different from what the guy uses. Can someone walk me through what I do to set up please?

    Hi @varxtis,

    You must enter them in the field for a start external Port and external completion Port. You will need to send individually except for the range of 49000-65000. The steps are as follows.

    1. create a Service name (it could be something else that you cannot use the same service name twice. Ex. XBOX1, XBOX2 and so forth.)

    2. Select the type of service (TCP, UDP or both)

    3 entry 5050 times a start external Port and external endpoints.

    4. Select the IP address of your XBOX.

    5. Select apply.

    6 do the same for other port numbers. To the beach, use 49000 for the external departure Port and for the external completion Port 65000.

  • Need help to see an alarm for an AP story/event

    I need help to see an alarm last occurred about two months ago, here's the information:

    I had a point to access Cisco 1524 down has a location around the week of April 15.  This access point is in a very remote place and is very rarely used so I did not have to examine the problem until about a month later.  It turns out that the Cat5 cable was damaged in an act of vandalism and the AP returned to the top after I solved the problem of cable.

    An investigation is underway and I wish I could say the detective the exact moment wherever the AP first reported down to the WCS.  I know that the alarm was there as I just never took the time to record the date and time.

    When I go to the alarms it go far enough to see when this happened.  Is - this information stored anywhere so I can pull a report and see the date and time of the AP are down?  I have searched and searched the boat launch of the report, but for the life of me, I can't find this information.

    I have the version of the WCS.

    Thanks for any help that can be provided.



    WCS logs have a finite number of alarms, they can store. If the event is more listed, then he was in and there is no way to recover this message alarm to see exactly when it was generated.

    Access to external Sites

    External candidates, by definition, do not have the nicknames PeopleSoft. To allow external users access to a site, you put a link to the site on a location such as your public Web site. The site definition includes a field to set the URL of this external link.

    Deployed in this mode, the instance of PeopleSoft to be accessed by external users must have the appropriate security settings to allow users to bypass the access code. In other words, a user who clicks on the link is not presented with a PeopleSoft signon pages but is instead signed the using a user ID generic comments so that the user can be taken directly to the candidate Gateway.

    If an external candidate allows a more inactive candidate gateway session that the timeout you set, the default system behavior is to provide a link to the login page of PeopleSoft with the visible invited user ID.  According to your logic of password, the guest user ID might be locked if the applicant tries in vain to connect. For more security and ease of use, replace the code page to a page that displays an appropriate message.   For example, to display a message that the session has expired and provide a link back to the bridge of the candidate.

  • Can't free up space for Sierra install

    After downloading mac os Sierra, I started to install it. I forgot to check my disk space. now I'm stuck in this message:

    Mac OS could not be installed on your computer - there is not enough free space on - to install.

    I tried to go into safe mode. no luck just a white screen. tried to erase some files in the terminal it says that it is read-only. tried to change the permissions chmod 777. no change. I don't know what to do.

    Hi Hzmajin,

    Thank you for downloading Mac OS Sierra! I understand that you are now stuck in the installation due to a lack of disk space on your Mac. Great way to try to start in safe mode to resolve. Given that it did not work, I start up your Mac in recovery then try a reinstall of the OS X earlier if possible. If you made a back up with Time Machine, you can restore the Mac since this backup or you can use to clear the drive completely and then reinstall OS X. After you upgrade to Mac OS Sierra, you can then manually restore your data from the backup of your Mac. If you do not create a back up before you tried to upgrade and archive and reinstall does not work, try using target disk Mode to access the disk drive on the Mac and remove the unwanted data in this way. The links below will help you with the suggestions I provided.

    How to reinstall OS X

    OS X can be installed on the same version or an earlier version of Mac OS X, without deleting your data. You don't need to remove or disable the existing system first.
    Boot to OS X Recovery now command-r immediately after start-up or you restart your Mac. Release the keys when you see the Apple logo. Start-up is finished when you see the OS X Utilities window.

    If you do not want to wipe your drive before reinstalling OS X, open utility disk from window OS X Utilities, and then use disk utility to erase the drive. Quit disk utility when done.
    Erase the disc is not necessary unless you transfer your Mac to a new owner, the partitioning of your drive for use with Boot Camp, or attempt to solve the problem as disk utility cannot repair.

    Choose to reinstall OS X OS X Utilities window, and then follow the instructions on the screen.
    This installs the latest version of Mac OS X, which has already been installed on your Mac.

    Restore from a backup

    If you have a Time Machine backup of your Mac, you can restore this backup the OS X. This erases the disk you restore, then replace everything on this disc with OS X and other data from the backup. To continue, OS X Recovery starting, then choose restore from the backup Time Machine and follow the instructions on the screen.

    Share files between two computers with target disk mode

    These steps should help you in obtaining Mac OS Sierra installed on your Mac with success. Please use the Apple Support communities to post your question. Have a great day.
