Friend is having 2 relatively minor problems with his 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.
He uses a flash drive to copy Word files from a Windows XP PC to his Windows 7 laptop. I created a one line bat file for him to copy all the .doc files from his document folder to a thumb drive.
We noticed that not all the document files were being copied. Of about 40 new files, only about 32 made it to the flash drive. When I tried to individually copy/paste files I get a msg (on the 'paste' end of it) that I Cannot copy (whatever).doc. The directory or the file cannot be created.
So I brought up the original document, and did a Save As to the thumb drive. There I got the msg Word cannot save or create this file. Make sure that the disk you want to save the file on is not full, write protected, or damaged.
The flash drive is about 1% full, does not seem to be damaged, and allowed me to copy 30-some of the Word files that have been created since 01//06/12, just not all of them.
Any of the documents already on the flash drive can easily be re-copied from the documents folder on the C: drive. It asks if I want to replace the file, I say yes and I get no error.
Any ideas? The Windows XP PC is runing Word 2003, while the Win 7 laptop is running Word 2007 if that makes any difference (I don't know why it should).
First problem in another thread.
