So I'm trying to bring my backup back over from my harddrive onto my macbook after installing leopard.

Its a fairly large folder, 74.3GB, it's just a clone of the way my Macintosh HD used to be....and I just want to transfer the whole thing back over, that way I'll have it local (i'm not trying to overwrite anything)

but every time I try to transfer, it stops at "preparing to copy 45,154 files" .... at exactly 45,154 ... as far as I know, there are no corrupt files, I use the drive all the time, and I can scan through the backup... it just won't copy it to my harddrive... any ideas?

oh, and it won't stop, I have to force quit finder and relaunch.

this is starting to get annoying, I need to be able to get that file off the drive... everytime it fails at 45,154
