    Hello everyone, I'm a new member here but I didn't know where else to go.

    I was transferring stuff last night to my new backup Hard drive I bought. I transferred something (Not even between drives) but between a folder and my desktop.

    The item I believe did successfully transfer but the copy bar (Picture posted below) is never ending. It's been like that for over TWELVE (12) hours not. I can't log out, restart, or shut down my computer. I also can't eject my Hard drive without it being a Force Eject which says there might be data lose.

    I also can't download things (it downloads but it disappears and never shows up in my download folder) and when I empty my trash and after it makes the emptying noise, it's still full.

    Please help me, I would really appreciate it. Much Thanks!

    Press Option+Command+Escape. (Alt+cmd+esc).
    Force the exit of Finder. That might solve it!
