HT5767 My mail all of a sudden would not allow me to delete messages in my inbox saying, "couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists." Found it duplicates the message I wanted deleted in trash.

Still  using the @mac.com   mail  address and up   to date on everything, but have not gone to Maverick.  All of a sudden Mail wouldn't let me delete.  Said that title of email was already in trash.  And sure enough it was.  Clicking on the help button on the message gets Nothing.
The selected topic is currently unavailable.
The topic you were trying to view could not be found.
"couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists."
Any ideas.  My mail is not tied to gmail etc.. just all by it's lonesome.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain iMacs. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • "91590.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists. How do I fix this?

    The delete button in Mail gives me this message: “91590.emlx” couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists. The only thin that has changed is an OS update last evening. (Mountain Lion)

    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.

    HT2500 Error when deleting email: Apple Support Communities

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Firefox could not install the search plugin from "chrome://tnt2toolbar/content/yos.xml" because an engine with the same name already exists.

    I can't search for anything. HELP!!!
    Thanks

    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 />

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • 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,

    if it has something to do with moving my Applications folder away from the SSD drive and to the HD drive
    HI ...
    Absolutely.
    Apps must be stored in the Applications folder on the startup disk they were downloaded to.
    It's not a permissions issue.

  • When clicking "Save image as" how can I get Firefox to auto add a (1) (2) etc at the end of the filename if an image with the same filename already exists?

    How can I get Firefox to automatically rename images when clicking "Save image as" on the menu, when an image with the same file name already exists in the folder??

    Hello,
    That is not a feature that is supported natively within Firefox but there are various add-ons which I think will do the job you need.
    The one I have used is [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-slide-show/?src=search Web Slide Show]. This is primarily an add-on for viewing a slideshow of images when they are presented as thumbnails on a web page. However once you are in the slideshow there is a download button which will download all the images in the slideshow. It will automatically rename the images if an image with the same name already exists in the folder.
    If you don't like that add-on then here are some others that may do the same job:
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/image-download-%E2%85%B1/?src=search Image Download II]
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/image-picker/ Image Picker]
    I hope that helps. Let me know if not.
    Also I notice that you are using Firefox v23. That is now an outdated version. To get the latest security updates I suggest updating to version 24. See the support article here: [[Update Firefox to the latest version]].

  • Operation can't be completed because an item of same name already exists - Mavericks

    I am trying to copy a large file folder (of a large iTunes library of music files) from a WD Live NAS drive to a new AirPlay Time Capsule via Finder on my Retina MBP. Every time I try it, I get the same error "operation can't be completed because an item of the same name already exists."
    I have tried a number of the following solutions:
    1. I cleared my cache out as in this thread:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2231287?start=120&tstart=0
    2. I tried using the Terminal app, as in this thread:
    https://discussions.apple.com/message/21786245#21786245
    3. I tried closing both Finder windows once I started the copy operation, as in this thread:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2231287?start=105&tstart=0
    4. I tried deleting/renaming all files that contained a ~ as in a thread I can't find right now.
    All of these things are not working. I was able to copy several other large file folders (mostly of videos) without a hitch. I can't figure it out. Can anyone assist?
    Many thanks...

    Yes, I had to format the 1TB to FAT before I use it.
    whoa there. why did you format the drive FAT? that's an obsolete windows drive format and OS X is known to have various issues with it. this may easily account for your problems. strongly suggest you reformat the drive mac os extended.
    "have you tried using the restore option within Disk Utility to copy the data back instead of doing it manually?"
    There's nothing on the 1TB to restore because I sent it in for warranty exchange. So its brand new, nothing in it.
    he was suggesting that you use the restore tab in disk utility to copy the 640GB drive to the new 1TB one. that's what I suggested too but I mentioned using superduper or CCCloner.
    but you really should reformat the drive first. the only reason to use FAT is if you want to use the drive from both mac and windows. but then you'll likely have to live with the quirks of FAT and OS X.

  • SPD 2010 - How to know if a file with a given name already exists in a document library

    Hi,
    I've created a workflow using SPD. One of the steps in there is changing the name of the document to a clean name. This workflow fails if a document with this same name already exists in my document library. Is there a way to check in a SPD workflow if
    a document with a given name already exists in my document library ?
    Marc Nemegeer

    Hi,
    According to your post, my understanding is that you wanted to know if a file with a given name already exists in a document library.
    You can use a SharePoint Designer workflow to achive it.
    To test to see if a document exists, you need to use condition:
    If Current List:Name  equals  [%Current Item:Title%].docx
