Apple devices including Macs, iPhones, iPods and iPad support standard wired and wireless networking technologies, but they also utilize custom applications and some special techniques for networking with each other and with non-Apple devices. Apple manufacturers the AirPort line of wireless networking products, and has its own networking protocols, AppleTalk and AFP (Apple Filing Protocol).

Looking to help a friend who uses a mac - I only know windows.

He says it's running really slow.  Where would you start to troubleshoot?  

Is there an equivalent task manager to show what's running / what's taking processor power?

How do you tell if the hard drive is full? (is it the same as windows - you don't want the hard drive near full because of temp files /  etc?

How much RAM would you want on a machine these days? What mac would you say is just too old for casual business use these days?  Me, I don't like celerons or any other processors others than i5 or i7 (maybe i3).  Yes, core 2 duos run windows, but sevearl year old windows PCs just crawl with all the patches / updates / etc on a windows machine.  same for a mac?

And for windows, I'd want 8GB+ RAM.  4 would be the lowest I'd deal with.

thoughts?

My last post on here detailed a problem with favourites disappearing from the sidebar.  I got several very detailed and helpful answers, the main gist of these being move away from the Apple version of Samba to a less buggy version.

Before I undertake this I thought I'd pose an alternative question, that being is there anything like mapped network drives on the MAC?  This is what we are using the favourites for, to point at shared folders on a Windows 7 PC acting as a file server.

We have a QNAP on our network which we access via AFP with Mac computers.

Recently we have had a dialogue box pop up:

Message From Server
Something wrong with the volume's CNID DB, using temporary CNID DB instead. Check server messages for details!

Coinciding with this message, we have been unable to view a certain folder via AFP (but can seem to see it via SMB).

From this message I think the CNID database the Mac machines use to access the AFP share may be corrupted but have no idea on how to refresh it or rebuild. We are no longer using this device for TimeMachine backups (as other forum posts have pointed at)

The inaccessible files/folders have since been downloaded locally to machines but we need to fix this as soon as we can, knowing any other folders and documents will not disappear as this one has.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Having a really strange issue, I inherited a OS maverick server that was set to share certain folders, each person has read and write permissions on each others folders, whats happening is that If one person moves a folder from their desktop into their server folder, non of the other users with permissions can access it. I have to log into the server and redo the permissions so that others can access it, Its driving me nuts

Everyone is running 10.9.5 except one who has 10.8.5.
