  1. I tried this out on Mojave, and the status fails over to a google search. With some investigation, I found that the method for getting the latest backups is obsolete. Digging around online, I found a way to query backup information even when the backup discs are unavailable: /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Print Destinations" /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist This gives you every TM volume's list of backups, which should be parseable to make it pretty, and to possibly only grab the BackupAlias and last "SnapshotArray" date. I haven't had time to modify your
  2. I must have been busy when you posted, and then I forgot about the thread. Just to clarify, what you've surmised is true, but it's also true of an external Mac-formatted, encrypted & journaled hard drive hooked up via usb3… not just a USB key drive.
  3. I don't have a lot of physical media to experiment with, but it does seem to be a file vault 2 problem. I reformatted that vfat thumb drive as a Mac formatted file vault 2 drive, and the eject command failed to send a notification. It ejects fine, but I have to check the Finder to verify that it did eject.
  4. No, it's not a second volume on the drive(s) I'm ejecting. One is an file-vault encrypted volume though (my portable Time Machine backup). Edit: I just checked with a thumb drive formatted for Windows (ExFat), and when I ejected it, I got a notification. So it may be that my other drives that lack notifcations are all Mac OS X formatted + encrypted volumes.
  5. For some reason, physical disks & thumb drives connected to my computer do not get notifications posted to the OS when I eject them through the system commands in Alfred. Oddly, DMG volumes that are ejected via Alfred commands _do_ cause notifications to pop up, letting me know the eject has been successful. Alfred version: 2.6 OS Version: 10.10.2
  6. I had not switched off Notifications. I had them set to "Alerts" rather than banners though. I haven't seen any banners or entries in my alerts that show when my drives have been ejected. Are there any other known causes/solutions for a lack of drive ejection notifications? Also, a separate issue: if I have multiple drives connected, and I eject all, in the past (on Mavericks, when this still worked) each alert would replace the previous one in a rapid succession, so that I had to open the notifications pane in order to verify that all of the drives had been ejected. What I had expected fr
  7. Could you post the solution here? I'm also experiencing this issue, but haven't sent a direct email about it yet.
  8. Sorry, I used the wrong word in the first post. When I said "I had just finished categorizing some workflows, and decided to rename the workflow." I meant to write, "I had just finished categorizing some workflows, and decided to rename the category." Here's a detailed set of steps to reproduce the search reset: 1. Use the search field and select Uncategorized, so that any Workflows that have no category shows up. 2. Double-click on a Workflow, which brings up the details view (Name, Description, Category, Bundle ID, etc…) 3. Change the category there to another value. 4. This shoul
  9. I use the Uncategorised search view as a kind of "inbox" from which to select workflows that need assigning to categories. But every time I assign one to a new category, instead of that workflow disappearing from the Uncategorised search view, the search resets to "All". Makes it very tedious to change categories for workflows.
  10. I had just finished categorizing some workflows, and decided to rename the workflow. When I was done and I selected that category, it was empty. I selected one of the workflows I had just assigned to that category (previous to the renaming) and found it was "Uncategorised". Also, it'd be nice if one could create categories while in the Details view of a workflow, instead of having to get out of the workflow Details window and go to the search field.
  11. When I use the "eject all" command, Alfred overlays each volume's eject notification over the previous one, instead of stacking them. I'd prefer them to stack, so I can tell for sure that everything has ejected before I pull the plug on those drives. Please provide an option to have the notifications stack.
  12. That's the entire script... Are you asking where in the workflow do you go to replace the original scrip with that one? That would be in the "Run NSApplescript" object of the workflow. Just double-click it, and the script window will appear.
  13. I've made an addition to the script, to launch Omnifocus first, just in case it's not running; I was getting a hang on OF if I used my workflow without doing that: on alfred_script(q) tell application "OmniFocus" launch end tell tell application "OmniFocus" tell default document parse tasks with transport text q end tell end tell end alfred_script
  14. I was bringing over my old Caffeine control applescript to add to my workflow, and decided to polish it up a bit and add notifications. It will toggle Caffeine on and off, either with the bare keyword, explicitly turn it on or off with those words as arguments, or with a number for the hours that the use want's it to run. You can use decimal numbers like .5 for half an hour, or 3.25 for three and a quarter hours to fine-tune how long it will be on. A notification will show how long it was turned on for, or if it is being turned on or off. Hope you like it. http://db.tt/HX7mny6g Ed
