    hi. i'm trying to copy about 85 Gb of music broken into hundreds of different sub-folders (various artists) from a hard drive configured as a network drive (it's plugged into my router) to a hard drive plugged into my laptop (macbook). i've also tried to transfer the files directly to my macbook's hard drive. either way the same thing happens: i select the folder i want to copy, drag it into the destination folder, and wait. hours go by and then the copy is complete...except it's not. for some reason the process only copies about 30 Gb. the folders not copied are fully accessible to the mac when i click on them individually, so it doesn't seem like these folders are skipped because they're not visible. anyone have any ideas?

    thanks. david
