I was doing a ditto to copy my ~/ to an external volume as a backup, and it got to the following file and stopped, and only ended up copying about half of my user folder, and none of my ~/Movies ~/Music (which are my two most iportant!)
So I decided to clean up the backup folder to start afresh, and got this (after trying sudo):
I originally issued "rm -r _gwailo" which worked for every file except this one, which gave me the same override prompt.
[localhost:hermes/_gwailo/documents] root# rm *
override rw-r--r-- gwailo/staff for Grocery List? yes
rm: Grocery List: Operation not permitted
Extra: hermes is a symbolic link to /Volumes/Hermes which is why it looks like a relative path from ~/.
Hello what's this then: it doesn't preface my folder name with an underscore in the override prompt (which it should). Is that the problem? I don't see why it would be sice I am IN that folder, and not referencing it from above...?
