    I recently bought the new cMBP and I'm coming from the PC world. I copied a folder from my backup GoFlex drive and the folder on the Mac has an X on the top left corner of the folder. What does that mean? I googled it, but I guess "x on top of folder" didn't get me far. Thanks!

    hmm, I've never had that, could you post a picture?

    press cmd+shift+4 and drag over the icon.

    Im pretty sure its the "x" to cancel the copying of the folder.
    Even when you finish, with the bug, the "x" stays there.
    But no worries, the folder is finished copying. Its just a glitch.

    Thanks!! That's what I thought but when it stayed, I was confused. Anyway to switch the icon to a normal one?

    Just restart the device and computer and you'll be fine.
    Even if you hit the x, nothing happens.
