Thanks for the response; I really appreciate it. This one has me stumped because after moving data around from hard drives for many years I have learned (at least some) ways to avoid snags with different file systems and OSes etc.
is the pathname of the file that can't be copied (in the same folder, onto a different drive or on the same drive)
I shorted the file name to
still same problem. I shortedned many of the problem files to file names considerably shorter than others. There's no illegal characters as far as I can see.
There are 13 said files part of the same album.
the S: partition is on a 1TB toshiba external hard drive. in the classical_okay folder there's hundreds of .mp3s with names longer than the one above that copy fine. I tried attaching the hd and copying it on a different computer. Same problem.
