    I just got my new iMac and I'm transferring all my files from my G5 using target disk mode.I'm trying to grab everything from my main HD on the G5 and drag it to the iMac (to put it in its own folder, not replace anything on the iMac).. just so that I have all the files. When I try to do this, I get an error saying "one or more items have special permissions and cannot be copied" what can I do to ensure that I get all the files?

    Would making a disk image of the HD work, through Disk Utility?
