File creation error - The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

For rld-me3a.iso (7.94 GB) from windows 7 (C: ) to E:
It fails at:
Time remaining: About 60 seconds
Items remaining: 1 (3.61gb)

For a different one (from C:\Users\Matt\Documents to E: ) (7.42 gb)
It fails at:
Time remaining: About 60 seconds
Items remaining: 1 (1.78 gb)

C:\Users\Matt>move C:\testfolder\rld-me3a.iso C:\test.iso
1 file(s) moved.
so move success. nice. But that took only 1 or 2 seconds...right? It just put a pointer in another folder to the blocks on disk.

The ISO files copy fails always on same place?, so

copy them in windows to test! The ISO's have bad blocks on disk!
perform from elevated command prompt:

Code:
 
chkdsk/f/r c:
chkdsk/f/r e:
any errors, and are they corrected? This takes hours, please be patient.

Hi,

The ISO is a file, not a directory. When prompted with:

Quote:

(F = file, D = directory)?
Type f

I'm not sure it will help the situation, but give it a go.

Hey,

I was going to put it as a file but it had E:\ so i thought it was specifying the destination but i'll try F now.

During the process I repeatedly get a pop up saying:
xcopy.exe - Corrupt File
The file or directory \rld-me3a.iso is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.

Result:
Code:
C:\Windows\system32>xcopy C:\rld-me3a.iso E:\rld-me3a.iso /J
Does E:\rld-me3a.iso specify a file name
or directory name on the target
(F = file, D = directory)? f
C:\rld-me3a.iso
File creation error - The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

Right click the file you are having a problem with and and in the general tab look to see if there is a button to unblock. If so click the unblock and try a copy again.

Actions taken and results described thoughout the progression of this thread is now leading me to think this may really be a hardware issue. I think I would make sure I had good backups of the drive that has the iso file that cannot be copied {I think it was C:}, boot into BIOS to run HD tests that may be available there, download HD manufacturer diagnotics and run them.

Are you getting any SMART messages for this drive when you boot the machine?

Even if it turns out to be a non-issue, it's good to know the health of your drive, as well as make sure you have everything backed up properly!

Did you type Y and did reboot? Then a chkdsk takes place on disk C. any errors? fixable?

I think the OP said it did run on reboot, but I don't recall if he ever posted what he found in the event log for the chkdsk run. He'd have to go there to get a screenshot of it to post.
