Title: Critical Alert: Failed to lock 'AddressBook' OSStatus error -47
Post by: chune11 on September 17, 2014, 03:55:42 PM
Hi there!

It seems that since upgrading to Mavericks, I have a small hiccup going on.  For some reason, every folder I have in Espionage will lock just fine, except for AddressBook.  Any ideas where to start?  Thanks!

Hello, the error -47 means "File is busy"
It is probably that inspire of quitting Address Book, the files located in that folder are kept open.
You can run a lsof command from terminal to determine which files are open and by which process are they used.
You will find an example here

If you need further assistance, let me know.

That worked perfectly!  It ended up being the Data Detective process that was still accessing files in the AddressBook directory.  I killed it and all is well.  Thanks!
