1. Verify Your Disk

  • Launch open your Disk Utility and let your Mac detect and repair automatically.
  • Select the First Aid tab and choose Verify Disk option.
  • Once you notice an error was detected, click on the Repair button, and your PC will automatically take care of the rest.
  • Now, restart your Mac, and let’s see if the problem is gone.

2. OS Firmware Glitch

Sometimes the cause of the problem might be because you’re dealing with a persistent temp file glitch. This is not easy to fix. However, we strongly suggest you go for the power cycle procedure to eliminate the error message. Your power capacitors will be drained and clear all types of temporarily stored data.

3. Use a Different File Name

Using a different file name is another way of getting rid of the problem. The first copy of the problematic file may have got corrupted, and your MacBook may not be able to replace it with a new file version.

However, we learned that renaming the corrupted file can remove the problem. So now, head to the file location and try to rename it to something unrelated to the original name and check if the problem persists.

4. Restarting your Mac computer

Restart your PC is a way to get rid of temporary glitches or bugs that might be affecting your computer. First, however, use the below key to force restart your computer.

  • Press Control + Command + Eject/Power button.
  • After pushing those combined buttons, wait for the next startup to complete and check if the problem is solved once your Mac boots.

5. Check Your Power Settings

You automatically put your disk using power settings to extend your Mac’s battery life. Unfortunately, this may cause you to get an error code 50. As a result, your disk is dormant, and the copy or move functionalities are unavailable.
