    Getting an error “The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0).”

    I was trying to copy some large files from Mac to external USB drive but I am consistently getting an error “The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0).” is there any solution of this problem?

    This issue appears because most of the USB flash drives are formatted with FAT or FAT32 file system which is a windows file system. They shows a major issue.You can't copy a file which is larger than 4GB with FAT 32. It doesn't matter, whether your USB Flash drive has a capability of 16 GB or 32 Gb or like that.The best way to solve this issue is by following the below given steps:
    • Backup your data on another drive and Reformat your USB flash drive.
    • Now Open Disk Utility on your Mac and select your USB flash drive. You will find it in the left pane.
    • After selecting your drive,choose the tab which shows "Erase" and select "Mac OS Extended(Journaled)" from the volume format drop-down menu. You can enter any name of your choice.This will be the name of your device.Finally click on "Erase" button. After the completion of this process, you would be able to copy files without any issue.

    ================================================== ================================================== =

    Follow the steps:

    =) First move the disk utility.

    =) Then open the USB flash drive.

    =) Now selects the “Erase" option.

    =) After that you can format the drive with the “Mac OS Extended” option.

    =) And then this will repair the Fat 32 problem.

    =) Now you can easily transfer the data into USB drive from the Mac system.
