So I was moving a file, aprox 3gb, to my other hard drive, the power went out for like 30 minutes, then what It was back on I see two parts of that file, 1 in the original place, and 1 in the other. How do I get the rest of it to go on the hard drive, or resume the transfer?

IF the power went out during the file transfer the copy that you were creating will probably be corrupt so best thing to do would be to delete it and start over - the original file should be OK since it had already been created on the HDD so the power going out shouldn't have corrupted it but the new file that was being created might have problems if you just try to continue with the copy so best bet is to delete it and start over just in case !
