    I am trying to copy an outlook.pst file from a PC hard drive with a USB adapter but my Mac is not having it. I have that NTFS-3G plugin installed, but it tells me. "The operation cannot be completed because the item outlook.pst is in use"

    What's weird, is that I can copy any other file from the drive except this one. People have mentioned problems with the "preview" function but I don't have the file highlighted. I have also restarted the computer, repaired permissions and zapped the PRAM. Any hacks? :confused:
