I'm currently trying install SourceTree onto my computer and have received the following error message:

The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “SourceTree” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)

Do you know what this means or how I can fix it?

I've never seen that one before, it suggests either that the package is corrupt, or that maybe that you don't have permission to the DMG for some reason, maybe because it was downloaded under another account? Either way the solution is likely to be to re-download from http://sourcetreeapp.com.
