    Hi

     

    Error -49 opWrErr  File already open with write permission

     

    Trash the preference files while application is NOT Running.

     

    from Karsten Schlüter

    Some users notice on exporting larger projects from within iMovie that this operation is aborted with an 'error -49'

    This issue occours only on MacOs machines using 10.7x

    try switching-off the Local Mobile Backup

    in Terminal copy/paste

     

    sudo tmutil disablelocal

     

    Re-launch Mac

     

    Yours Bengt W
