    Each time I copy a directory that contains 3 or more files, it erros out and I end up having to copy the files one-by-one. I am using OS X 2 and 3.

    The copy is from a Windows 03 server to the local harddrive or to another folder on the server.

    Sometimes I get an error that says the the file that I am copying is in use. NOT! No one anywhere is using the file!

    Any ideas? :mad:

    How long are the file names? if more than 31 characters rename the files and try again. I have the same problem at work when I try to move files from our working PC to the Mac server. Also check the sharing issues with the files you're trying to move, that also has stopped me in the past.
    Good Luck
