OSX I do not heart you right now....

Ok so OS X Leopard is being a bitch.... i'd like to pimp slap my os if possible... does anyone know of an app where you can pimp slap your osx?

Ok seriously though, i copied a whole bunch of .m2t files to a folder on one of my internal 1tb drives ( the drive is fine), i had issues copying these files, but eventually my extreme pimp stare won out.

The issue now though is that i cannot move the files or rename them. i ran repair permissions. i've checked the files individual permissions i my account is set to read/write and still i have this issue.

If i try to move the files all the folders move, but the files do not, stranger still is the window that shows you the moving progress does not appear, all the files together are about 40gbs.

Any advice would be really helpful... thanks

p.s. i attached a screen of my mac, the specs, the permissions etc....

guessing the repair permissions thing does the standard chmod 777 (or 755) and chgrp/chown thing ?

You could always do chmod 777 /path/to/folder/*

and see if that allows you to do stuff with the files i tend to do the /* bit till it tells me there are no more folders

Try unmounting and remounting the hard drive, and or restarting Mac OS X. I have no idea as to what is going on here.

Also, check console.app for any obvious errors in the log files.

try "ls -lOh" in the directory where the files are in Terminal. It could be some file flags have been set which are causing issues.

ok i'll try all those things, although i think you are all wrong especially carpo, he is always wrong.... :)

ok i tried geffy's thing first, here is a screen grab of it, i see nothing wrong here.

if i do that with a folder higher up, will all the folders within the destination be affected also or just the folder? hope that makes sense.

for instance if i do chmod 777 to galleria, galleria also has multiple folders and files in it, wil they all be affected as well, which is what i want to happen?

i've restarted no joy, i'll try unmounting and remounting, but uploading stuff right now, will do so after..... thanks for the help guys...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
