moved external hard drive - now unable to save FCP Project!
on Sep 19, 2013 at 10:57:49 pm

Hi,
My external hard drive disappeared, and i was able to rebuild the directory with disk warrior. But the drive is un-usable, so it directed me to copy all files to a new drive. I've done that. But now, when i open a project - i cannot save it. I get the error message "specified file locked". I have multiple projects / footage saved on this drive!
Please help?

My info...
OSX6.8
FCP 7.0.3
Macbook Pro - 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
externals are Western Digital - My Book

Thank you so much for any help!

When you bought those new drives, did you reformat them? The default format they ship with is FAT32, a PC format. You need to use the Disk Utility to reformat them to MacOS Extended (journaled) before you can use them.

Hi,
I had reformated them, to Mac OS Extended (journaled). I"ve been googling
and came across the suggestion to trash my FCP preferences.
I did that, and I looks like now I am able to save the project. I hope this is all good now. Still copying all the files over. I've never trashed pref before, so didn't know anything about that. Hoping for the best.
thanks for replying!

...and I hate to sound like your Mom, but now you know the value of having a backup. As an old IT buddy likes to say, "If you only have one copy, you have NO copies."

And stand up straight. And eat your vegetables.

I'm probably the only mom in captivity who has a moustache on purpose.
