Welcome
A very possible cause of your problem is a failing hard drive, run a chkdsk to find out if that is the problem.
Read this tutorial, particularly point 4. Make sure that you check scan and attempt to recover bad sectors.

Hi thanks for replying

As I mentioned above, the first thing I did was to chkdsk from a command line all internal and external drives. They were 100% fine.

Maybe I am missing something.

When you did the chkdsk, did you use the repair option that I mentioned in my post? That option is more thorough and smay pick up problems not discovered with the quick check. In addition it repairs many of the problems encountered.

Check eventlog. It's either the source or destination drive. Because you have tried many drives as output... it's almost surely the source drive.

No. I did a simple chekdsk. I'm still from ms-dos days...

I doubt it if a repair job chkdsk /F would repair something which is not there, but the worls has moved on since my early days, and I will try it now.

Need to restart. back in a min.
