Enabling Guest Account May Cause System Preferences to Crash in LeopardWritten by Maria
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is a popular and powerful operating system, which is the successor of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. It is also the last version of the Mac OS X operating system that supports PowerPC architecture. Along with a wide set of features, Leopard operating system enables you to make guest login via intended user accounts.
With this feature, you can allow your friends to use your system, without viewing your significant data. You can enable or disable the guest account, as per your requirements. However, in some cases, enabling the guest account may cause serious system preferences crash and lead to system failure. It renders all your valuable data inaccessible and causes critical data loss. In order to recover lost data after such incidents, Mac File Recovery is required.
You can easily enable the guest account in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard using ‘Accounts’ system. However, in some situations, enabling the guest account may prove problematic when the system preferences crash after the process. You are left with no option, other than quitting the system preferences and rebooting your system to get all the things back in working state.
The guest account gets crashed in such cases and does not work at all. The problem generally occurs after you restore your system from a backup using the Time Machine utility.
Mac OS X operating system creates a home directory when the guest account is created. The problem takes place if a conflict occurs when the name ‘guest’ is used. You can try creating a standard user account and then using other Guest login name. However, if the problem can not be fixed, you are required to reinstall the operating system to fix the problem and perform Data Recovery Mac.
If you perform ‘Erase and Install’, it formats the hard drive and removes all the stored data. It can fix the current problem, but also cause severe data loss. In such situations, Mac Data Recovery come to your rescue.
It is the process of retrieving lost, missing, and inaccessible data using Mac Recovery Software. These applications are capable of recovering lost data in all data loss scenarios. They are completely safe and easy to use.
Stellar Phoenix Macintosh Data Recovery software recovers lost data from hard drive, USB drive, FireWire drive, iPod, and memory cards. The software is designed for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard, 10.4 Tiger, and 10.3.9 Panther. It recovers lost Mac data from HFS, HFS+, HFSX, HFS Wrapper, and FAT file system volumes.
