Cannot delete read mail. Keep getting the following message "926540.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists.

I am trying to free up room on my hard drive but keep getting the following message. “926540.emlx” couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists. 926540.emix is the number given to the email I want to delete. This message appears (with a different .emix number) when I try to delete any mail. I have junk mail from 2014 to 2009 that I want to delete

    Thanks...it was spooky seeing the mail in my box suddenly disappear and blank after going to Mailbox and Rebuild.  But "poof" it was up again and was able to delete without the messages telling me it had a duplicate in trash (which it did).  Solved the problem.

  • Cannot backup my files / copy my files and folders due to error message " The operation can't be completed because an item with the name ".DS_Store" already exists. "

    Hi Apple community!
    I have a [rather worrying] problem.
    When I try to copy all my files from my documents on my mac [or the entire documents folder] into an external drive, I get this error message
    " The operation can’t be completed because an item with the name “.DS_Store” already exists. "
    I am not given an option to skip this file or anything else.
    But I simply cannot complete the operation!
    I have tried deleting a few of the .ds_store files, [both in the original and in the destinations]
    but no success.
    The same thing keeps happening.
    At first, this was just happening when I was trying to backup to my dropbox folder [the one on my mac's harddrive, which gets synced to the cloud],
    but then I tried to back up my documents to my external hard drive, and I realized it is giving me the same error message.
    So effectively, it seems I cannot backup my files anywhere!
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • One particular plug-in that I am trying to install reports 'an engine with the same name already exists.' However I cannot find it, even using the troubleshooting routines

    Hi,
    I am trying to install a add-on that will enable Google to behave as if I am in the USA. When I try to install the add-on I get a message which says 'An engine with the same name already exists'. However, I can find no evidence of the add-on and I have been through the various troubleshooting routines. Anybody know of a way around this?
    I have looked at the list of installed plugins and cannot see it. So whty does does FireFox think it's there?

    Hey oks10,
    It sounds like the Bing plugin might have been corrupted. I would bet that it's still installed, but not working. Try removing it from the \searchplugins\ folder in your [http://support.mozilla.com/en-us/kb/Profiles#How_to_find_your_profile profile folder].
    I'd close and restart everything after you are done, then try installing it again.

  • A workflow with the same name already exists.

    Hi, whenever I am trying to create a workflow in my MOSS teamroom, I am getting the error "A workflow with the same name already exists". I am getting this error message no matter what name I give. I checked all the lists and document libraries to see if there are any workflows but that doesnt seem to be the case. I opened the site in SPD and there also no workflows are listed.
    Any insight will be appreciated.xwindow

    I know it is a bit outdated but someone might found this helpful:
    The other possible problem could be that the SPD lost connection with the Sp site for a sec but on the local machine there is a workflow with that name. ( In this case if you try to rename your workflow it gave you the same error message )
    So have a look in SPD click on All files then select Workflows and delete the workflow that is causing the problem.
    After this exercise you will be able to rename or re save your Workflow.

    That is a problem with an extension that tries to install a search bar. The tnt2toolbar should give you a clue about which extension. You didn't add troubleshooting information with the list of installed extensions, so I can't give a suggestion about which extension is causing this.
    You can check for problems with preferences.<br />
    Rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js and user.js files to reset all prefs to the default value.

  • Error message "The operation can't be completed because an item with the name .DS_Store already exists"

    Major headaches with copying files and folders between drives. I constantly (and I mean constantly) have to resort to copying files across in small batches (fewer than 10 works best) because anytime I try to copy lots of files and folders from my mac to an external hard drive (or from one external HD to a second external HD), I ALWAYS get the error message  "The operation can't be completed because an item with the name .DS_Store already exists".
    The files and folders are all Mac-generated, so hint or trace of foreign OSs in the mix.
    All file types are susceptible
    the HDs are all Mac OS X formatted, no foreign file formats involved
    the HDs are all journal-enabled, OS X extended formats
    have looked on here for previous posts, past suggestion was to disable creation of DS_Store files - not really a solution and realistically, defeats the purpose of their creation
    any ideas anyone?
    would appreciate any thoughts or sugestions, this has got me beat
    the context is that I have a lot of image files that I am copying (trying to...) new external 3TB drives for backup and the job appears endless if I have to do this in batches of 10 or so..!
    many thanks for any suggestions

    This is definitively a nuisance. When copying large amounts of files between volumes  try opening a terminal window and use use ditto. You need to type the directory paths of the source and the destination volume. When it starts ditto just coupes and optionally overwrites anything on the destination. You can get a verbose mode where it lists all activities.

  • The operation could not be completed because an item with the name xyz already exists

    I am trying to make a click and drag backup on an external FAT 32 drive to compliment my Time Machine backup (long story) and I've done this each time by dragging my critical folders into the drive. I get a message asking me to stop, replace or skip, and whether to apply to all items. i click replace, apply all, and let it go.
    however, one stubborn folder refuses to comply. every single time I click and drag a group of folder that includes that one, I get a message saying "the operation could not be completed because an item with the name xyz already exists" even after I selected the the "apply all" prompt. at which point, the Mac stops transferring ALL the other files.
    I figured, OK, i'll just transfer the other folders individually and then deal with this folder later. so I do that, and once I get to the offending folder, I try to transfer just that one folder into the drive. no good; I get the operation message again. I decide to just transfer the contents of the folder, rather than the folder itself. No good, I just get the operation message about one of the folders within the main folder.
    anyone know the cause, or at least a fix?

    If you've installed a system modification called "TotalFinder," remove it according to the developer's instructions after backing up all data. Log out, log back in, and try again.
    Otherwise, open the Info dialog on both the source and the destination volumes. What is the Format of each? For example, it might be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)".
    For some other possible solutions, see:

  • Project Server 2010 and Report Builder 3 : the same name already exists

    Hi,
    I created my first report in Report Builder, and,
    although it's not perfect, I tried to save it. But I get the error :
    Impossible to save the report "No title.rdl". A file from another type with the same name already exists".
    I tried to change the name 5 times but I always got the same error.
    Any idea ?
    Thanks

    Hi WLID,
    I have taken a sample test in my environment, it works well. If there is already another type file named “No title” on report server, then it can be saved on report server. If there is already a report named “No title” on report server, then it would prompt
    that “An item named ‘http://servername/reportserver/foldername/No title’ already existed. Do you want to replace the existing item?” when we want to save the report in the same folder.
    What’s the location that you want to save the report? Is it a report server or others? Could you please provide us more information about the issue? You can try to reopen the Report Builder, then create another simple report to text the issue again.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
