If your last attempt to repair fails, give these a try (one after the other until a fix):

- Right click the bad file, select properties, and change one of the properties. Now try moving it.

- From an elevated command prompt, run SFC /SCANNOW. If it fixes anything, try moving it.

- Sounds odd (because you have no startup problems) but try performing a startup repair: Startup Repair

If none of the above works, you could boot a Linux disk and run an ntfsfix utility. I would hesitate to rely on that alone though, because you should be able to fix this within Windows...

Boot into System Recovery Options
Now enter "command prompt".

Code:
 
Copy c:\folderA\somefile.iso f:\
First check if C is realy same partition as in real windows!
Otherwise try D for example
Just do:
DIR C:\
DIR D:\
DIR F:\

To see what drive letter is good.

Is the iso file successfully copied to f:\ now?

Tip: delete all test iso's I did let you create in previous posts to save disk space

So even in recovery environment it fails!
in recovery environment
Code:
 
copy C:\testfolder\rld-me3a.iso c:\testfolder\copy-rld-me3a.iso
copy C:\testfolder\rld-me3a.iso c:\copy-rld-me3a.iso
fails?
When does it fail btw? after 1 second, after 99%, after 2GB?
you can't see percentages in DOS but you still remember from win7 I hope

Hi Vangle,

Could you try this please:

Code:
xcopy C:\rld-me3a.iso E:\rld-me3a.iso /J
Lets see if unbuffered IO does the trick.

Regards,
Golden

Here is another blindshot - Sometimes, I guess that defragmenting the ISOs can result in more efficient file transfers and hopefully remove any bottlenecks.

No harm in trying Wincontig WinContig and/or Power Defragmenter RejZoR - Power Defragmenter 3.0 released!

Run as Administrator. (both)

It takes a lot of time to defragment large files. So be patient.

Try copying after the defragmentation is complete.
