    This is weird can somebody explain to me why when transferring a file from an external HD to my HD internal on my iMac...the file transfer is finished. Though when looking at the icon it has a progress bar with an X where I could close/delete the folder?

    If I knew how to take a screenshot id show you guys:mad:

    Those bars indicate that the transfer is still in progress...I guess you could force a re-start, then check to see if the files have copied over. If you get the "File Transfer In Progress" message or similar, then Force a re-boot and check again.

    Why would they show this though if the window that showed its progress finished?

    That explains it thank you

    I was scared to transfer to computer then delete the file from an external. Good to know it transferred fine.
