Discussion

An NSFileManager object, manager, sends this message for each error it encounters when copying, moving, removing, or linking files or directories. The return value is passed back to the invoker of copyPath:toPath:handler:, movePath:toPath:handler:, removeFileAtPath:handler:, or linkPath:toPath:handler:. If an error occurs and your handler has not implemented this method, the invoking method automatically returns NO.
