Thanks, it's back now. Apple did a wonderful job (paid nothing, got it back in less than a week). I can finally login to accept your answer :)

comment Mac OS X cannot find the hard drive (anywhere)
Thanks! I tried the easy SMC reset, with no luck, and decided that opening up my MBA was not a job for me. Thanks to thew last EU directive on consumer rights, it's still under 'EU warranty', so Apple is fixing it at their expense. The diagnostic tool at the store confirmed that the Toshiba SSD was at fault.

comment Skipping .DS_Store files when copying between two external drives
Making sure that there was nothing on target was my first move, but the problem occurred inside the archive, which is large and therefore likely to contain errors. And yes, rsync saved my day :)

comment Skipping .DS_Store files when copying between two external drives
I don't know that, otherwise I would have deleted the file manually. It took place as I described it: I dropped a large archive folder at the root of a new hard drive, and it repeatedly failed midway because of the message posted above. I cannot say which .DS_Store file among the hundreds in my archive was causing trouble, so skipping them was the best strategy.
