Google Drive Account Change
I recently came across an issue with Google Drive. I had started using it with one account on my MBP and then switch to a business account. For a variety of reasons I stopped using it with the business account and wanted to switch back to the original account (my main Google account).
I couldn’t do that, there was no way to log in to my business account anymore to disable the Google Drive on my computer. This left me quite frustrated and looking for solutions. Finally I figured out a way of deleting the old drive info without needing to do anything drastic like reinstall the operating system.
Exit the Drive app.
Open a Finder window.
Press Command + Shift + G - this will open a small panel asking you to enter a directory location
Type (without quotes) “~/Library/Application Support/Google”
Delete the Drive folder.
Open the Drive app.
Can’t login after time machine restore?
You’ve reinstalled OS X Lion onto your computer, possibly because your computer crashed and you need a new hard drive. Crisis adverted, you had a Time Machine backup. Good work not being a bum and losing everything. Install went well but what’s this, you can’t login after restoring your backup. F#&K!
Ok, lets try this.
- Reboot the Mac and hold down cmd+s — This will boot into single user mode. Black screen, white text.
- Mount the hard drive as explained at the prompt. — Most likely: mount -uw /
- Type: passwd [your user name] — For example: passwd jeroen (jeroen is my username on the machine). If you don’t know your username, type: ls /Users
This will list the usernames on your computer.
- Enter your password, and confirm it by entering it again. Notice you do not “see” what you type, this is normal.
- Type: exit
If you have Mountain Lion reboot by holding cmd+r instead of cmd+s to go into Recovery Mode and change your password using the Graphical User Interface.

Are you annoyed with those pops the let you know you’ve changed the volume?
Heres how to turn that off. Go to your system preferences and click sound. In the sound effects tab uncheck “Play feedback when volume is changed”
