    Somebody posted this in the 10.8 long ago. I'm curious if people are having this error message when they are copying files around 10.10:

    "The operation cannot be completed because the item is in use"

    I get this when copying from my computer (iMac) to the Drobo - even when I've done a fresh reboot and there aren't any apps open.

    Is this a bug? Is there some way I can tell which app is using the file?

    I'm not sure what to do...

    Shoot, I posted this in the wrong forum...should be in 10.10.

    I have to start a new thread but...

    This problem is really severe for me. Restarting the computer so often isn't really an option. Oof...
