Just got a new mac and copied my old files over (just a drag and drop from a copy of my User directory on an external hard drive). Sorted them out a bit, but now I was hoping to copy them on to a different external hard drive since I've been having some Time Machine issues (different story entirely). I really just want to drag my Documents folder onto the HD, but every time I do I get an Error 36 on on of the files at some point. Inevitably these files are Powerpoint projects or iDVD compilations - files that point to other graphics or mp3 files or whatnot. So it cancels the whole copy. I'd be fine with even ignoring those files. I tried zipping up my docs and copying that over, but even that hangs up saying it can't read/write the data. Any ideas? Help!
