I need to move a 16 GB folder to my external drive, but moving it manually gives me an in use error. I have tried to start in safe mode and moved it but it was still in use.
I have run these commands
diskutil repairdisk /dev/disk0s2 diskutil repairdisk /dev/disk2
Where disk0 is my disk and disk2 is the one I want to move it to.
I have no permission errors and I have even run
sudo mv -f it gives me these:
mv: symlink: ../../../../../Preferences/com.apple.systemsound.plist: File exists`
I have also gotten the same error but without
For 200 files and the last error is this
mv: /bin/cp: terminated with 1 (non-zero) status
What can I do? I have also ran
sudo chmod 777 for both folders and used the "include for all files option (OS X).
By request here is the exact command:
sudo mv -f ~/desktop/collections/jadd /Volumes/External\ 4
