OS X :: Large File Transfer - Unable To Copy?

Nov 23, 2009

Earlier i posted to ask how can i format using SL upgrade disk. I came across a problem. I have a work .ISO image which is about 9 GB and i tried copying that to my External HD with 20GB free Disc space. I am not able to copy it. I tried searching for a program which will make it into an archive and split it (like WinRAR in PC) but wasn't successful.

OS X :: System Considerably Slower After Large File Transfer

Jan 8, 2011

I copied a lot of information to my friend's mid-2010 MBP, about 80GB of data. Used iChat - transfer took about three hours but it got there.Before the transfer her laptop was very quick - didn't have much installed, plenty of free space. After the transfer, the laptop still have a lot of free space (>100GB) but is very slow. Before the laptop would take maybe 1 minute to boot up.. now it's over three. She experiences bouncing beach balls when loading applications.

OS X :: Large File Transfer With Unibody - No Target Disc

Aug 31, 2009

I just purchased a new Macbook and was planning on transfering my very large music folder (100+gb) using the target disc feature and a firewire cable. However, I completely forgot that the new Macbooks don't have firewire ports. So, I'm wondering what my options are...

I'd like to avoid wireless and Migration Assistant because of their slow speed. I know I can use a crossover cable to create an ethernet connection, but I don't currently have one with me and I'm kind of eager to get this computer set up tonight.

I'm wondering if it's possible to use a regular ethernet cable to do the same thing? Or possibly connect both computers to my router using seperate ethernet cables? (and would that option improve the speed of transfer)? Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.

If nothing else works I'd be willing to wait a day and buy either the crossover cable or a usb converter for my firewire cable to do target disk (would that even work?).

MacBook Pro :: Run Into Large File Transfer Using Thunderbolt Between Two Identical?

May 31, 2012

I have two MacBook Pros running 10.7.4. I wanted to copy one iPhoto library from one device to the other using a new Thunderbolt cable. The file is approximately 60GB. When I copy a small file of 1.0 to 2.0 BG in size, the transfer is incredibly fast -- as in seconds.  

When I try to transfer the large file (60GB), the transfer is very slow, and Finder says it will take 12 hours. Oh, and I am not running any anti-virus software.

OS X :: Dmg File Unable To Copy To External Hard Drive?

Aug 15, 2009

I have OSX leopard as a disc image on my desktop. When I try to copy the .dmg file over to my external hard drive it copies for a while, then an error message says it can't copy it over and stops. I'm really confused as this sort of problem doesn't usually happen.

I'm running Tiger 10.4.11 and I want to install Leopard. The Leopard disc image is 6.66GB.

I can't burn it to a DVD either because the discs I have are 4.7GB & the .dmg is 6.66GB. Do I need to buy a bigger DVD blank disc?

Another question is how I should burn the disc. Should I simply burn the .dmg file straight onto a DVD (if I can get one that is big enough!) using Disc Utility?

MacBook Air :: Slow To Copy Large Files To SSD Drive

Apr 2, 2008

I've had my Air for a couple of months now and very happy with it. However I've noticed if I copy a large about of data to it, lets say around 2gb from a USB or network drive it grinds to a halt. It would start off saying 10 minutes to copy, then get to about 800mb and slow down to about 24 hours to copy.

ITunes :: Unable To Copy Folder From External Hard Drive "file In Use"?

Feb 9, 2012

I am trying to copy my iTunes folder from one external hard drive to another external hard drive but I keep getting an error message "unable to copy because file (song name) is in use".

Software :: Cannot Copy Large Files To External Hard Drive

Mar 7, 2007

I have a 38gb iMovie file on my MacBook. I also have a 160gb external HDD. I want to copy the file across, sounds simple right? It will start copying happily but when it gets to about 8-10gb I get this error message (EVERY TIME!): Sorry, the operation could not be completed because an unexpected error has occurred (Error code -1309). I really do not want to delete this file as it is a wedding video I did for a friend only a few months ago. I am trying to copy across to a Freecom II drive using USB.

IMac :: Getting Error 36 On 24" When Transfer Large Files From Desktop To External Drives

Nov 20, 2010

I have a 24" iMac and it was running fine the other week and now I get this annoying error=36 whenever I try to transfer large files from desktop to my external drives. It goes about 1/4 way with the transfers then stops with the error=36 message. I've tried to reset the pram but it won't let me. It just keeps on restarting to the same gray screen with the single short beep tone over and over until I let go of the option, command, P & R buttons and restarts normally but does not reset the pram.

OS X :: How To Trash A Large File

Aug 7, 2010

I'm trying to secure-empty-trash a large backup disk image, about 275 gigs. During the process I had put the computer to sleep a couple times. After that, it seemed to be making no progress. I tried to stop the process so I could try again, and now it says

"Emptying the Trash...

and has said that for hours with no apparent progress on the status bar. Is there anything I can do get it to finish the process, or to actually stop so I can try again?

Why Does Mac OX 10.6.8 Keep Making Copies Of File Anytime Download / Copy / Move File

Feb 25, 2012

Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.

I have a 3 gig file that I want to send to someone by burning it on a few cds (no dvd burner T.T). What is the best way to compress the 3 gig file and burn it over a few cds so my recipient can take the files off the cd's and recombine them? I've seen rar files like this, and I guess that would be good but I don't know how I would do it.

Mac Pro :: Photoshop CS3 Large Format File Keeps Quitting

Apr 15, 2009

At one point I reinstalled PS3, but now I have the problem again.I often have problems with large format files in PS3. It was working fine, but after a couple of hours it "unexpectedly quit....". I have relaunched, tossed preferences, etc. When I force quit, the PS3 icon in the dock still shows up with the dot and the Force Quit window shows up with no indication that there is a problem. When I try to reboot many times I have to use the power button on the mac. Finally i got PS3 to open...I opened up a different file and it worked fine, but the large format file tried to open and it came up with "Could not complete your request because of a program error." Photoshop locked up. Do my large file formats get corrupted for some reason?I have a MacPro, Dual-Core Intel Xeon, 2.66 GHZ, 2 processors, and 16G B memory...There should not be a memory problem with this machine. Why do I always have problems with a large format file?

Intel Mac :: Delete A Large File Without Computer Crashing?

May 13, 2012

I am playing around with HD video and have a very large Quicktime File (12.5GB) that froze my computer while rendering.  I need to delete it.  (CRASH: screen freezes and dark line slowly comes from top to bottom and once entire screen is slightly darker, a post in the middle pops up and tells me to turn off computer by holding power button). 

After a lot of trial and error, it seems the problem is that the computer can't handle the massive deletion.  Unlike a lot of other similar issues on this forum, this is a single file and not hundreds, so i can't delete portions at a time and be done with it.  I have run through all my ideas and need help on how to delete this file from my computer and have come up with two possible ways: 

1 - Split this video into smaller files.  I dont know how to do this: I have SPLIT-CONCAT but that duplicates (then splits) and does not actually split the original.  I tried "replacing" the video with the same-named smaller file and it crashed the computer. 

2 - Change preferences on this computer somehow to allow this massive deletion. I tried a force empty through terminal and it did the same crash.  I dont know if there is a preference (disk manager) or otherwise to get rid of this file.   

I am on a 2006 Intel iMac running 10.7.4
