Can anyone tell me how to fix this?  When I try to copy Documents to Drop Box, I am told "The operation cannot be completed because one or more required itmes ca't be found.  Error code -43."  What is it that can't be found?


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Normally, that means something inside of Documents, which I assume is your home folder's Documents folder, is corrupted and can't be copied. Try dropping them a few at a time until you locate the borked file(s). FWIW, I don't use Dropbox, so can't answer anything related to that.

    Thanks much.  I did precisely as you recommended.  Oddly, it did not reject anything I fed it in small doses.  After dropping everything in that way, I tried putting the whole thing again and it went!  Somehow th problem had corrected itself.
