Pathfinder 10.1.1 (2096) on Mac 11.5.1. I have a FAT32 formatted USB disk (2gb) that I can use Finder to copy files to, but not Pathfinder. It gives me the error "Attribute not found." Nothing more useful than that. Doesn't matter what file, or what kind of file. Screen shot of error attached.

    Report from Japan. I have same problem, too. Pathfinder 10.1.2 on macOS 11.5.1. I can't copy file's in the Dropbox folder with Pathfinder, but I ca do it with Finder. It shows me the error "Attribute not found." . Complete reinstall of Pathfinder dose't work against that.

    I have the same problem with an ex-FAT formatted USB thumb drive using Pathfinder 10.1 or 10.1.1 on macOS 11.5.1.

    Also having the same problem when copying files to an ex-FAT drive. Pathfinder 10.12 and macOS 11.51. Very disappointing. Haven't been able to find a fix.

    Where's Cocoatech on this? Copying files seems like a very basic function to not have working in a file manager... kinda like having a car that does everything but move. It's been 10 days of crickets!

    The problem with copying something takes a long time to solve! I bought the program for work and not for testing bugs!

    I am having the same issue too using latest version of PF with latest MacOS -- this is gone on too long for such a simple basic function.

    When can we see a resolution????
