Mac Files Won’t Copy To External Hard Drive – How to Fix

I’ve a problem I’ve never come across before and its how to copy files to External Hard Drive? I’ve just migrated from using Windows for 15 years onto Apple iMac and had been copy files easily on Windows without any hassle and thought I’d done the same on my iMac but seemingly they’re hard to copy the files or folders to any other External Hard Drive, I have tried to format it to FAT32 but it’s still the same. Do you have any ideas as to why this happens and how to solve this please?

Why Mac Files Won’t Copy To External Hard Drive?

The problem is that your drive is Windows NTFS formatted by default. Mac system is not support this format, OS X can’t write NTFS out of the box (at least not without some tweaks). Here are some ways to do this. So why Mac files won’t copy to external hard drive? There are several reasons:

1. External Hard Drive has been locked. You will get a notice said the item “folder name” could not be moved because “USB-HDD” cannot be modified. In fact, the external USB drive is not formatted for use with your Mac. the drive is formatted as NTFS which is normal in a Windows environment. While OS X is able to read from a drive that is formatted at NTFS, it cannot write to one. You will get a warning saying that the drive cannot be modified.

2. External Hard Drive in a read-only state. It is in a read-only state, you will not be able to copy and modify the file. So you need to check if the External Hard Drive in a read-only state or not.

3. Connection or damage issue about External Hard Drive. A misaligned or malfunctioning cable may be the cause of the problem, especially if you also have errors when trying to read from the external disk.

Help me please! My Mac is still not going on but gets stuck at the process of updating software or something related system. This update has been on about 8 hours since last night, and grey status bar is now loading in from the left in black. I wonder if updates are still going on in the background.

Sometimes, even though it goes to 99%, it stops and you have to leave it going for several hours but do nothing. Mac even doesn’t allow you to shut down and you have to get stuck on the update screen for a long time. There is no noise and Mac will not respond to any input. It seems very helpless. And users don’t know how to do with it.

Security threats can include any of the following cases: creation of an account under a false identity, promoting illegal content, and unsolicited contact for dating, harassment of other users, inappropriate or spam advertising, or general suspicious activity. The above behavior can make your account disabled. Even if you didn’t do that, the risk of your account may also be hijacked by malicious people. Read the rest of this post »
