I have been trying for days to copy 2.7tb (photos/Lr images)

I am copying from Lacie thunderbolt drive
To new external.

I have formatted the new via disk utility to Mac OS.

I have tried dot_clean

If I drag the Hardrive into terminal to select the path I get the error

“Failed trying to change dir to .documentsRevisions-v100
Bad pathname: permission denied etc

If I select the individual folder, it seems to run the dot clean on the folder, however I continue to have the problem.

So far it has attempted to copy, starts to copy several hundered GB of data then chooses to give me the error.

At the moment, I have all my images on one drive and really need it to copy.

Any help would be appreciated so much.
[doublepost=1547430295][/doublepost]It seems to always show a RAW photo as the culprit of error 36, says “said file can’t be written error 36”

I keep deleting these files and beginning the process again, Lightroom has no issues with the files and they open no problem.
Only seems to be a problem when copying

The solution:

1. Download CarbonCopyCloner from here:
http://www.bombich.com/download.html
CCC is FREE to download and use for 30 days.

2. Have your source drive connected and your target drive connected. I suggest that you use Disk Utility to "re-erase" the new drive to Mac OS extended with journaling enabled.

3. Open CCC and accept all defaults for now.

4. Put your source drive on the left.

5. Put your target to the right of it.

6. Click the "clone" button and sit back.

Do this, I guarantee a 98% chance of success.

Thanks, so far it's looking good. I have heard of this software it gets great reviews $55 here is Aus.
Great idea to use the 30day trial. Fingers crossed this copies across.

Thanks Fishrman
