    Hi, Whenever I am transferring a huge amount of files (like a laptop hard drive to my desktop) and I drag and drop my home folder into a folder on the desktop of my hard drive, after copying a bit of the files, it will abort and say it cannot copy 1 file. And then I have 19,000 more files that need to be copied over, and I need to select every individual file that needs to, and can be copied over. Why doesn't it just pop up a message that says "skip this file, and notify me at the end of transfer which files haven't been copied." THis is REALLLLY annoying. Windows does this too. If you try to back up your files to an external drive, it will copy over some of them, then it will get to a weird file like indexuser.bak.db or something like that, and then just give up. GRRR....
