When trying to finalise a project - i rec'd a message saying that error 49 prevented me from finishing the task - does anyone know what that is and what I need to do?

    A. Why do You Finalise Your project

    • to me it doesn't do any good only

    - takes up lot's of space

    - get's hard to get back if more editing is of need

    - no quality enhanzement at all only time and space consumption

    TO ME !


    B. Error -49


    Error -49 opWrErr  File already open with write permission


    Trash the preference files while application is NOT Running.


    of following I don't know anything - but he usually 100% onto something.


    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
