    I have automator running a weekly task of making a copy of a 10gb folder (database) and into copying 2 (120 seconds) minutes of the 10 minutes it is going to take automator comes back with an error "Finder got an error" Connection is invalid. I know its the size of the folder as i ran it on a different folder and ran successfully. How can i extent the "timeout" period of when it is copying a folder? it needs at least 10 minutes to copy 10gb.

    just for the sake of trying i compressed the database and tried to have it copy that way.. still errored out with the same message.. every time it gets stuck at 120.7XX seconds. On the folder and the zip file.

    okay i used the "duplicate" Action instead of "Copy" seemed to fix it.
