Just got my new SSD today and already I'm having issues with it Misery loves company ring so true.
So here's my system. MacBook Pro late 2011 model. I swapped the new 320 in and did the deed. Installed OSX Lion and did all the updates and started transferring all my films.
Problem 1: my laptop went deawd (I think) where the screen went blank for a few seconds as though as it did a super fast, this happened while the files we copying.
Problem 2: I canceled the transfer thinking there could be a corrupted and deleted the partially copied folder to start over, however the system kept telling me it couldn't copy a specific files e.g. Acbbythisartist.mp3 because the file already exist but it isn't on the drive at all.
I decided erase the drive and start, problem 1 didn't happen which was great but problem 2 persisted. The system kept telling me a file is there but this is a newly formatted drive. How can it be possible??
Looking for some help plz. Brownie points if there's a solution that can be done on a Mac
If security erase meant using the toolbox that only works on PC - no. But here's the thing. I deleted the file like twice, how is it that a shadow copy remains to visible that a file can't be copied? I mean would I have to secure erase every time I delete a file?
right, so i did manage to do a secure erase for toolbox 3.0 and also did a firmware upgrade, BUT, I'm still having the same issue of OSX telling me the same exact file that I tried copying over yesterday already exist.
What am I doing wrong here? Is there a glitch with the drive?
