    Hello all,

    I'm having a problem with one of my internal 1 TB drives in my Mac Pro. It will not let me delete a file or folder. But, it will let me copy files off of the drive and write to it. It is formatted as " MS-DOS (FAT32)", it is just a secondary drive in my Mac Pro for documents. I have tried to go into disk utility and repair the disk, but no dice.

    So, to sum it up...when I try to delete a file this is the error message I am receiving: "The operation can't be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -1047)

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Eric

    1. Copy everything to another drive.
    2. Reformat
    3. Copy everything back.
