I have an external HDD and for some reason I cannot cut items to it, only copy.
Is there anyreson y this is happening. How can i get around it?

what do you mean you can't "cut" items to it?

not sure what you mean by that term...

If you're talking about actually using the Edit menu (Copy, Paste, etc.) for moving or copying, then I don't think Cut ever works.

But, if you are talking about copying by dragging a file, and "cutting" or moving by Command-dragging a file, then I don't know why that isn't working for you.

Can you clarify what you mean, though?

Well, i mean that file>cut is not an option. However i tried holding command down as suggested and that was what i wanted it to do. Thanks for the tip and sorry for the bad wording.
