Hey guys I recently move a bunch of video files onto my G5 and my External HD from my QS G4. When I copy them to my iBook for portable viewing they sometimes require a password or won't copy over because I get the "file is busy" error.
I also get the same error when trying to combine two folders of videos into one.
That doesn't sound good. Do you still have root privileges? Sometimes you have to repair the disk several times before it'll allow you to repair permissions. I just use disk utility over and over. It should eventually work...
What error do you get when it won't repair permissions?
its not really an error that disallows me to repair permissions on my FW400 external HD its that there is no option to repair Permissions in disk utility, the button is unclickable. Is there another way to forcefully repair permissions for my External HD
