OSX (AFP) file copy error code -8084

Hi,

I am trying to copy a large folder (approx 35GB) from one (mounted) volume to another via afp from my OSX desktop using drag and drop.

I need to do the copy via afp as so to keep database linkages correct via the backend DAM system.

I have copied a bunch of folders already and they have copied over fine, one of them was just over 30GB in size, therefore this is not a size related issue. But when I try to copy my last 2 folders over I get the following message:
The operation can't be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8084)

There is plenty of free space on the target volume also..

Any ideas?

Regards,
RoboTiger

Use Disk Utility to Repair the other volume. Then run Verify Disk on the system volume to make sure it is not corrupted.

While you are at it, run Repair Permissions on the boot drive.

Hello Strung,

Thanks for your suggestion. When you say the 'other volume' I am assuming that you mean the source volume - the one that contains the original files?

By other volume I meant the volume that you are not booted from. You can't repair a drive while you are booted from it, but you can verify it to see if it needs repair.

So repair the drive that you are not booted from and verify the disk you are booted from.  Also repair permissions on the boot drive.

Hello again strung,

I have verified and repaired all volumes (local boot volume via booting from OSX disk and running disk utility) and I still have the same error?

It is possible that one of the files in the folder is corrupted.

Take a look at the console logs and see if there is an error about a corrupt file.

Hello,
try to copy requested folder using Terminal and cp command. The syntax is:
cp -r source destination

Open in new window

. It can produce more meaningful error message or just point to a file which causes the error.
