I got this funny error yesterday. I had a zipped file of size 2.89 GB and the unzipped version of the file which was 9.3 GB.
I tried deleting the both file and each time I got the same error. I have attached the image below
I tried deleting one of the file from Terminal and fortunately I was able to delete the file. I checked the forums for any reason for this issue but couldn’t find any valid reason.
In my case I restarted the machine and things were back to normal. But even after restart if you are not able to delete files try using Disk Utility to repair permission on the partition.
If you are in some kind of hurry Terminal should be good enough. Just do
rm -rf FOLDER_PATH
(You can just drag and drop the folder on to the terminal after typing “rm -rf “)
The similarities between all the issues I found on web(related to this) were that it occurs on driver not formatted in “HFS+ Case-insensitive”. My file system was “HFS+ Case-sensitive”, it looks like apple has a bug to fix.
