We love our Macs. But occasionally a funky bug pops up. Fortunately, there’s usually a helpful explanation online that shows you a good work-around.
This video demos how to get past the “Error 1 – Operation Not Permitted” error that occurs when trying to unzip a zip file created at TourVista.com.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6–dQQ9U1fs
The solution is to use Terminal, a built-in program on the Mac.
- Open Terminal. You can use the Mac search at the top right and start typing Terminal. It will appear, click on it to open the program.
- Type “unzip” and a space, then drag/drop the zip file into the Terminal window.
- Press Enter and the zip file will be unzipped, storing all files on your computer.
Your unzipped files will go to your user account folder which you can easily access using Finder.
