I am having a strange problem that I hoped some one here could help with.
My system drive failed yesterday and during the reinstall process I am trying to copy a vst presets folder from another machine but i keep getting the message Cannot copy files as they are in use. However none of my software that would be using those files are active (cubase, peak and live). I have tried retreiving them via migration assistant/ with FW target mode enabled, via my LAN, and manually copying to an external device
I have rebooted both machines and still all of the files will not transfer. This is the only file folder that if lost will sadly be a lot of sound design work down the drain.
Any suggestion greatly appreciated
MacPro ( new system drive) 10.6.8 Macbook Pro 10.5.8 Holding the most up to date preset files
