I have a 4.6GB file on my hard drive. Today when I tried to copy it to another machine through network, I got the following error message from Finder halfway through the copy:
The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in "(name of my file)" can't be read or written. (Error code -36)
In addition to copying that file to another machine through network, I also did the following:
checked some other files on my hard drive and found another one with the same problem;
tried copying those files to another folder on the same hard drive, and got the same error;
tried to open one of those files, which was a .dmg file, by double clicking on its icon, and got a different message when Finder tried to verify it, saying there was an input/output error.
Then I tried the following to fix the problem:
Disk Utility: I ran Verify Disk and it said my disk is OK;
fsck -fy: it also said my disk is OK;
dot_cleanas suggested here: didn't work, the error remained.
So what else can I try? Is this an indication that my hard drive is failing?
