In Jaguar, each time I wanted to do a backup of my “Preferences” folder in my home library, I would get an error message saying something to the effect that “one or more files cannot be copied because they are in use” and asking me if I wanted to proceed with the rest of the files or not.
It was a minor problem when backing up to another hard drive, but a more significant one when attempting to back up to a CD-R, because the error could cause the CD burning to fail.
This has been fixed in Panther. Now when I want to back up my “Preferences” folder, Mac OS X no longer complains about anything and copies everything successfully.
It is a small thing, but it counts. And it shows that Apple has been paying attention to details.
