10.4: A caution on the functionality of Burn Folders
Authored by: sjk on Sep 16, '05 01:23:35AM
Re: it can crash halfway through the burn if some random folder has a protected/non-copyable file (what is with these files? Everything should be copy-able)

Try running:

find ~/Library -not -user yourusername -not -type l -ls

... in a Terminal shell to check for non-symlink files/directories you don't own. For example, you might discover root-owned, read-only-by-owner files under the Preferences directory.
