    I am new to mac and have all new mac machines, 2 laptops and a desktop.
    I have 2 1 TB external hardrives in an enclosure formatted to mac journaled

    I successfully transferred one folder the first time I used it but now when I try to transfer I either get the 05 error but mostly the error says my file names are too long.

    I know there is a simple fix and would appreciate any help.

    You're sure they're formatted to Mac OS Extended (journaled)? You can check by selecting the drive in Finder and going to File -> Get Info.
