Man you tell me, I had an ibook for a few years so I thought I knew most of the windows/mac differences. :smack:
The warning wasn’t that different from what XP tells me when I replace a folder by another, so I wasn’t suspicious and went right ahead. :smack:
That said, it does explain why I had the content of another folder disappearing a few months ago. Drove me crazy. I couldn’t explain how I had managed to somehow delete data that was important to me, but it never crossed my mind that replacing folders means something different in mac os.
Yeah I’ll do that, but my external HD is formatted in NTFS so I have to see if I need to pull stuff from it before formatting it again in a Time Machine friendly type.
