Recommended Posts

my entire 10 years of music and photos are in jeopardy. I deleted my backup to make space. But now my main external drive keeps on complaining can't find DS_store file as i attempt I copy. iTunes music is not able to play any songs.

 

Exact error: The finder cannot complete the operation because some data in .DS_store can't be read or written (Error Code -36)

 

Please HELP!!!!

The DS_Store files can be deleted without consequence. They merely store the last view arrangement of each folder (column width, font size, etc) and Finder comment tags. I expect you can solve your problem by running a utility that deletes all the DS_Store files on your music volume. You also can do it in the Terminal as explained below, but probably not a good idea if you don’t know what you're doing because a typo in a Terminal command could delete files you didn’t intend.
