I am currently editing a short film which is only about 25-30mins long with nothing out of the ordinary in the timeline. There are a couple of nested sequences but most of it is .MTS (AVCHD from Sony NEX VG20) and .WAV files for audio (inc some 5.1 audio from camera).
Some of the channels are locked so they dont move but other than that nothing strange or particualry intensive is being done. Some of the clips are 25fps and some are 60fps but this shouldnt be a proplem for PProCS6!
The sequence settings are AVCHD 720, 24fps,
I am running a core2duo 2.16cpu/8gbram/ creative cloud OS and program on C: drive, footage on esata G: drive and scratch drive O: drive is another usb 2.0 drive.
As soon as I move the clips in the timeline as a group I get this error come up (see screengrabs below) "... linkcontainer.cpp-245"
None of my searches have given me an answer, one person even said "reinstall software" [nonesense!!!]
I am just days away from submitting my short film for my final major project at Uni and the film is worth 50% of my module... basically I could fail if film isnt handed in!

That could be a problem. It's not a very capable processor for this kind of media. (Though I wouldn't necessarily expect it to cause a crash.)
What exactly do you mean by "move the clips in the timeline as a group"? Do you mean a nested sequence, as you image suggests? Or do you mean grouped clips, which is something very different? Or do you mean a bunch of selected clips?
The CPU hasnt been too much of an issue before, I shot a 1hr30min documentary last year at it only lagged at the final export stage.
In saying that it isnt the best, thank God my upgrade is coming soon!
What I mean by "moving the clips in a group is..."
using the tool (right facing arrow and shift - sorry I cant remember the tool's name) and selecting every clip to the right of it, for the purposes of moving to an earlier point in the timeline to close a gap, moving clips individually is out of the question and there are too many and loads are specifically sync'd and have intricate sequencing and timings.
I havent tried 'grouping' the clips but I shouldnt need to for a simple move like this.
All I need to do is close a few gaps in the timeline.
