I am having the weirdest problem since upgrading to OSX Yosemite.

If I select a bunch (hundreds) of files and try to move them to a different folder, only a few (under 100, like 86) of the files move. The rest are still left selected in the original folder.

I could not find anyone else experiencing this problem.

Anyone know what is going on?

    Any other information? Do the folders reside on the same disk? How large are the files? what sort of files, etc.?

  • Any file, same hard drive. Just tried it with 500 jpg photos. Only 86 move at a time. Jan 30 '15 at 18:23

    Did you check the permissions on remaining files?

    Try copying with the terminal, using cp or rsync and see if it still happens
