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.

ls- al shows nothing particular: I presume it's a corrupted file issue (the .DS_Store files have been causing trouble for some time now).

I'm copying directly to the disk root, not to an existing directory, and there are no existing files on the target, so there is no overwrite.

Easiest/Most expensive.

Unfortunately, the amount of combining I have to do requires an automated solution for generating the TOC.

Same observation here, you get what you pay for, no free tool surpasses PDFpenPro. I have version 5.8.5 that combines PDF files through the AppleScript menu, anything new in version 6? And most importantly, does it create a TOC for the final result?

comment How can I change the font used in Preview PDF notes?
The only explanation I can find is that nobody at Apple is actually using that feature, otherwise someone would have noticed and asked why notes do not use a generic font like Lucida Grande.

comment Unable to install software packages using Home Brew
This should work. It's a corrupt file issue. Also run brew doctor, brew cleanup and brew update to be safe.

I second the ridiculousness of the current situation.
