I am trying to backup files to an external hard drive (seagate black armor) from my new mac laptop (osx snow lepard). Aome file will not copy. I get the message "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items.". I have no restrictions on these files. Although some files copy just fine others dont. Any ideas/fixes appreciated.

thanks
Quinn

    Even if you do not set permission yourself, files do come with its own permissions that you need to fix in order to move them.

    1) Try to do repair permissions in Disk Utility
    2) "Sudo mv -iv" in terminal those files to the external drive

    This isn't really a general tech support for Mac users, just for 1PW and other Agile softwares. You'll find better help elsewhere, try macrumors, Apple forums, or just general google search.
