    So I've been having problems with my iMac and 10.6 for a while now. Every now and then when I was copying files, it would stop after a while and give me this error message:
    As I was getting increasingly frustrated, I decided to use this opportunity to once again set up a dual boot system and see what the latest Ubuntu release had to offer. Once I was done installing, I was greeted by a warning that my harddrive had many bad sectors and should be replaced.
    Obviously, when I let OS X run all the tests I could, it didn't find anything wrong.
    Now today I discovered the possible source of these problems: I was going through my iTunes library folders and found a couple of files that looked like this:
    See that one file in the middle? I can move all the files in that folder around as I please, but that one file makes my comp. crash when I copy the whole folder.
    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    This seems to be a problem that has been fixed in 10.6.3 so upgrade your Mac to 10.6.3 and it should be fixed.
