Tried prior discussions

However....while that was a Snow Leopard issue, I have long upgraded to Lion so either has not addressed the issue that was Snow Leopard and it has migrated to Lion or they have yet to fix it at all??

I read the discussions

And since it involved a FAT32 file system there is no reason for me to think this does not apply here.

I know that most folk today do not want to dive or delve or divine file systems but the error from the prior discussions appear to point out it is, and possible cures.

-> When you post, please add details such as the OS, the file systems in use so we can avoid prior solutions that don't apply.
