Error-36
on Dec 30, 2011 at 4:37:43 pm

I have a portable hard drive sent to me by a client that has 11 uncompressed QT files on it. I need to work on those. However when I try to move the files from their hard drive to mine for editing purposes, I get Error -36. I've tried the fix of dot_clean that has been suggested by many but still no luck. I'm using a Mac Quad Core Intel Xeon. SL 10.6.8.

I've also tried in on my Macbook Pro, and on my older Mac G5. Still not working. I'm figuring that their Hard drive( Lacie Rugged) has an issue, although repair permissions and repair hard drive have not made any difference Any ideas?

Thanks very much and happy new year.

How is this drive formatted? Did it come from a Windows user?

Hi Dave,

It's formatted as OSX extended Journaled. I was only able to move one of the 11 files off of that drive.

How much space do you have remaining on the drive you are copying to?

Steve, more that 1 TB. I also tried dragging the one of the files 1.76 GB in size just to my desktop on each of my computers, still get Error -36

If you have Disk Warrior run it on the offending media drive. If not, try running Fix Permissions on that drive from Disk Utility. You might also want to run either or both on the your own drive as well.

Hi David, thanks for your advise, as I said earlier I've tried repair permissions and repair disk. I've tried three different computers and two different drives that I KNOW work fine.

Tom I tried that. As I said in my initial post I've tried the fix of dot_clean. That was what that video suggests.

David mentioned Disk Warrior, above. Disk Warrior can often fix problems that utility cannot. If you have no luck with the other suggestions I would get a copy and give it a go. Good to have, anyway.
