Error code 36 while copying a file in Mac OS.

I am trying to copy a folder from one location to another location on the SSD of my Mac Book Air. I am encountering an error 36 as a result of this. I am trying to paste this folder that has 8 files in it to a folder that is designated to my Drop Box. I do it everyday but this is happening for the first time. How can I fix it? What can I do to remove this error? Should I be worried about my SSD?

Error 36 occurs when the file is having difficulty while either reading from the drive or writing to the drive. It could be that the file have been corrupter or disk may be damaged. To solve the issue you can try to copy the file to another drive. You can also try dragging or moving the folder/file to the desktop, then highlight it, and in the Finder window menu click get info and check if locked is checked, if yes then you just need to unlock it. If it doesn't show locked try a permissions repair by clicking Go, then Utilities, then disk utilities and highlight your user drive, then click Repair Permission and wait for it to finish. You can also use a disk recovery software, such as Disk First Aid to examine the disk or you can try rebooting with all extensions off.

·         If an error 36 occur during copy then create a folder in MS-DOS and copy files form your Mac right into folder. Copy anything do you want to copy.

·         Copy the MS-DOS folder into your Mac desktop.
