Thread: Problem with copying files
06-01-2006, 09:16 PM #1scatman crotherGuestProblem with copying files
Hi, i recently switched to a 15' Powerbook G4, and so far it's beautiful, except...
I'm trying to transfer my folder full of school work (almost all .doc files) to my mac from a wireless network. The first problem is that in accessing this folder I see along with my files a whole bunch of .tmp files. What are these? Next, when i copy (I just apple+c and then apple+V) them to a new folder on my desktop, the transfer goes well until a third of the way through when the progress bar just stops. The mac is still fine, but i can't 'stop copying' no matter how many times i click on the X button. Eventually i have to restart because there's just no way to stop that frozen progress bar and it seems to impede other programs. any help would be appreciated.

Try CTRL clicking the folder and selecting "Create Archive of..."
This zips the folder into one file and, most of the time, makes copying a lot easier.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
