Error code -1426

I am trying to copy some time machine back up files from a external hard drive to my laptop. I get a message that says " Sorry the operation can not be completed because an unexpected error occured (Error Code -1426).

Any help would be appreciated.

Are you trying to restore a backup using Time Machine, or just copying files in the Finder from your TM backup?
Which OS version?

I am trying to drag the files from the Time Machine Back up to the desktop of the machine. The machine is running 10.5.8.

Thanks!

Why are you dragging the files from TM in the Finder? Have you tried Restoring them from within Time Machine?

Yes, I have tried that but in time machince, it does not see files as time machine files. My hard drive had crashed. I replaced it and only had a time machine back up from a year ago. Is it possible with software updates the version of time machine backups I did a year ago will no longer work on my system?

You could try restoring the TM backup to your new system using Migration Assistant.

EDIT: Dragging from the Finder is supported and should work. So either it's an actual bug, which you could report to Apple; or, given that your old hard drive died, perhaps some the backed-up files are themselves corrupt or damaged? (Though I'm not certain that this error code would be generated by corrupt files.)

Thanks, I tried using migration assistant but for some reason it does not see the user on the drive as a choice.
