Mac OS X Error Code -8072
LOVING MY WESTERN DIGITAL MY BOOK LIVE
So I picked up a new Western Digital My Book Live. Enjoying it, still learning how to use it. However I received an error message while using My Live Book.
THE REASON FOR THIS POST
Error Code -8072. I was prompted with -8072 while trying to delete a few files off the network drive. The reason for the error was not enough permissions. It’s odd that I don’t have enough permissions because I’m the one who uploaded the file to My Book Live originaly.
So here’s a way to get around Error Code -8072.
RESOLVING THE ERROR CODE -8072
Open up Terminal and enter the following:
- sudo rm -rf (then drag the file.folder you wish to delete into the Terminal window)
- Press ENTER and the file should be deleted.
Hope this short quick post helps!
