Pls Help: Problem with ".DS_Store" File
5 months ago

Hi Everyone,

I'm having problems copying and backing up files. Long story made short:

I am trying to copy files from one drive to another, and the copying process is being stopped by a .DS_Store file.

This .DS_Store (type of file) has caused problems since I got my my new 27" iMac 6 months ago and I moved/copied everything from my FW800 external drive set up to a new thunderbolt external drive setup. When I did my initial transfer (clone) of files, the process was frequently stopped due to this .DS_Store file. I got around it by not cloning the drives all at once, but by coping chunks of files, group by group. A pain, but it got the job done.

I'm trying to copy files now and am running into this problem again.

Can anyone tell me what this .DS_Store file/problem is and how I can get rid of it?

I'm not sure exactly what info you need to help me here, so please let me know what information I can give you and I will provide it.

Thanks so much!

This is the what I'm running into.  File copying stops and can not continue.
