When Installing Circuit Python I get a "The item “.Trashes”

by arduinho on Thu Oct 28, 2021 3:24 am

On a mac running Big Sur 11.6. I just got a Trinknet M0 and am following the instructions here https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-trinket-m0-circuitpython-arduino?view=all, but when I get to the "Trinket Default Zip Install" instructions I received errors the disk space is full when I try to copy over the contents. What could be the issue? Thanks!

There's something taking up space on the drive. Are there any hidden files/directories? What's in lib? See https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-trinket-m0-circuitpython-arduino/troubleshooting#running-out-of-file-space-on-non-express-boards-2978466-49 for more information.

That seemed to work, thank you! Seems to be the key is using the command line and not drag and drop on MacOS.

All hidden files looked the same, so not sure exactly what was done, but it was able to be fully copied over after deleting the other files using
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
cp -rX folder_to_copy /Volumes/CIRCUITPY
