Hi, I am trying to copy a bunch of files from one drive to another by simple drag and drop. In Finder, it just fails. In Path Finder it gives me some errors. Basically, Path Finder is seeing files that I cannot see and that don't seem to exist (they are not invisible). Anyone have any idea how to fix this? I could just skip over them, but they are a nuisance. Thank you!

    I tried that, didn't do anything. Wondering why it's seeing files that
    aren't viewable in finder. If I show invisible files, it still isn't there.

    Hi Jon,

    I couldn't reproduce the issue. If you can, I wonder if you see any logging messages coming from Path Finder (use Console.app to see those messages) at the moment this irregularity happens (while copying)?

    Looking forward to your reply.
