"new folder" option grayed out

I was organizing my files photo in year folders and subfolders of months on an external portable 1.5 TB harddrive. I've only used less than 1%, so I have a lot of memory still available. Suddenly my "new folder" option is grayed out. How can I get this working again? (The file is available, but I don't want this kind of file.)

You format your drive Seagate for a Mac? It is delivered formatted for Windows and if you are wrong in the installation of the software on the drive, it will be read/write until the software stops, then you will be able to read the disc.

Select the drive, then the get info (cmd - i). See if it says that the format is NTFS. If this is the case, it is formatted for Windows and OS X can only read the drive natively. You can install a third-party software to read and write, but it is apparently not well maintained and seems to fail to update to OS X.

If this is the case, I would say you move the files to another drive and then format the drive as Mac OS extended (journaled), then move the files back.

  • New folder option missing in vista when right click on

    I have vista 32 bit and just replaced my hard drive and reinstalled my OS.

    I was not able to create new folders.  When I right click on the box, and then click New, "desktop folder" is not there.  When I'm in windows Explorer and click on "organize", "new folder" is there, but when I click it, nothing happens.

    I ran sfc/scannow, and he said that he managed to repair some files.  I then rebooted and the problem is still there.

    I also checked the registry to verify that the desktop of windows update component has been installed and matched: {D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719}

    I also have the administrator rights.

    Don't know what else to try.

    I saw another thread on this recommendation to copy and paste a few lines of registry, but this thread was several years old and don't know if I should try again.  In addition, he was vague.  He said "copy and paste the following lines and save the file with the .reg extension. Double-click to add the information to your registry.

  • Package option grayed out on photoshop!

    Help, please!

    I am a design student and have used the tool to package many times in the past on the paid photoshop - however, I just went to package a document so that I could take to my local print store and the printed and the OPTION IS NOW GREYED OUT and won't LET me CLICK on IT.

    I have spent hours trying to figure why the package option is grayed out and closed, it was reopened, turned off the computer to reset. I'm new to photoshop (in my first year) and am find this frustrating issue, because it must be packed to be printed on the laptop computers of stores (they do not have photoshop software downloaded, so I usually convert to pdf so it can be printed).

    Please someone, I have to get this package option work so I can hand in my assignment on timeHELP.png

    That's linked smart objects (according to the c.pfaffenbichler^^) and you must save the file before you can package. Of HelpX:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Smart Objects linked package

    You can package the smart objects related in a Photoshop document, such as their source files are saved in a folder on your computer. A copy of the Photoshop document is saved and the source files in the folder.

    1. Choose file > package.
    2. Select a location where you want to place the source files as well as a copy of the Photoshop document.

    Smart linked audio or video objects in the document are packaged as well.

    Note: you must save a file before packing smart related objects that it contains.

  • Headphone issues and options grayed out reading preferences

    The basic problem is that when I play music via iTunes, if I plug my headphones, it covers only playback through the computer speakers, not headphones.
    If I closed iTunes, plug in the earphones, THEN restart iTunes and play music, it will come through the headphones, but if I unplug, it is paused and not restart, even if I plug the headphones insert it again.
    Although I can change speakers headphones by stopping iTunes and restarting, I'm often trailing long playlists, it is not practical to do so.
    Other advice, it seems that I have to change the "audio playback" setting using "Session of Windows Audio' 'Direct Sound', or something similar, HOWEVER, when I go in Edition > Preferences > reading, the box is grayed out, and I can't change it.

    Any advice on how I can do so I can change the option, or any other fixes for the problem of helmet? Thank you very much

    (Running for laptop HP with Windows 8.1, iTunes 12.5.1.21,

    Installed new hard drive and reloaded the operating system on June 16, i.e. when the headset/speaker turn is more, before, and then it worked fine.)

    Have you found a solution? I've just updated to iTunes 12.5.1.21 and I have the same question, ' Edit > Preferences > reading > play Audio using the "gray

    Direct Sound is the vastly superior choice if you have several outputs such as speakers and headphones and now if have to stop iTunes whenever I output to the speaker.

  • New folder in gray and can be used or removed

    I created a new folder but it is grayed out and when I try to put an email in it creates an another subfolder with a part of the subject of the email into it. Also I cannot now delete this files. When I go in remove it asks if I want to delete and I click on it but it does not remove.

    I opened my profile via Help | For troubleshooting information, close Thunderbird and then search for the offending files/folders and delete them in your file manager. There may be .sbd files, including files that you created by mistake. Work in Thunderbird folders are files in your file system and have no extension. Each will have a companion with an .msf extension file. You can delete files without extension, their partner msf files and the appropriate SBD.

  • Elite x 2: Pen Input - Option grayed out on Windows 10

    I bought a new elite x 2 with Windows 10 Pro. The tablet includes a pen for direct entry. The pen works well for drawing and writing in OneNote, but the handwriting recognition does not seem to work.

    First of all (and especially), when I bring the on-screen keyboard and select entry options, the option for the Panel of handwriting recognition to enter text using the pen is "grayed out" and can not be selected. All other on-screen keyboard options work fine. Secondly, I think that there should be an option "convert to text" in OneNote to allow me to select the handwritten text and get OneNote to convert to writing. This option seems to be missing - I guess for the same reason that I can't select inking in Windows.

    It's frustrating because inking was one of the reasons why I chose this tablet. Can someone tell me if there is anything else I need to do, or what could be wrong?

    Hello TH270,

    I don't really know why the selection of pen Layout is grayed out.

    The only thing I could think is maybe to check the language pack that is installed.

    I use the English of the United States and his work on my X 2 spectrum that corresponds to your Elitepad.

    Reach:

    Settings/time & language/region & language/languages - add a language

    and see what the default is set to.

    If its already on English (United States), go to the options and see what keyboard is installed. It would be us QWERTY and not something else.

    My guess is that if another language is loaded, handwritting recognition may not available.

    Other than that, I don't know. I'm sorry.

    Add a language or keyboard - Windows help

    @WyreNut you have this problem on your X 2 Elite?

  • Impossible to reconfigure RAID5, expand VD size option grayed out on mini H710

    What I'm missing here?

    Thanks for the reply, but it looks like I'm the problem ;)

    It actually is a 2 step process to get this working.

    1 - Setup (f2)--> device--> management--> management VD h710 settings--> reconfigure VD--> selected Raid 5--> Select new drive--> click on apply.

    then, the screen returns to the previous menu

    2. ensure that Raid 5 is still selected, click on apply again

  • Options grayed out after that migration vSwitch0 vmk0 to distributed network switch

    I have a bunch of ESXi 6 guests, where I would like the default vSwitch0 to a vDS management interface. However, it seems that the management network gets screwed more or less of this operation

    First I tried to simply migrate the physical interface and vmkernel to vds = no chance (resets the form configuration time to hosts)

    Then I tried to connect a NIC seconday to the same switch, adding as a management console interface, make two interfaces marked as management interfaces. The uplink of vSwitch0 is replaced by the new interface and the vds is mapped to the original management interface. From this point, I can migrate vmk0 to the distributed switch and remove the extra card. All good, at least at first glance. The army continues to communicate with vCenter and so on. However, return to the console options to "Network adapters" and "VLANS (optional)" are grayed out. The only way I managed to get back them is again a reset to the default settings of the management network.

    After som test front and rear, it seems that these options disappear as soon as vm0 leaves vSwitch0?

    Any ideas how to solve this problem?

    The army continues to communicate with vCenter and so on. However, back to the console options for "Network adapters" and "VLANS (optional)" are grayed out. The only way I managed to get back them is again a reset to the default settings of the management network.

    I guess that's the expected behavior, because once your vmk0 has been migrated to vDS, now the vDS control plan which is with vCenter server will allow you to change these settings as network card and VLAN ID etc.
