It literally refuses the copying to be performed ...
I'm trying to copy folders/files from a Seagate SATA II 320 GB Hard Drive to a newer Western Digital SATA II 1 TB Hard Drive.
That error sometimes refers to a read write problem. That could be caused by a controller, too little ram, or a busy cpu.
How bis are the copies?
What does it say in event viewer about it?
There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.
You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).
When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.
When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.
Let us know if you need help with any of this.
