Windows 7: File Copy Freezes after 1.27GB transfer of 4.95 GB

File Copy Freezes after 1.27GB transfer of 4.95 GB

Hi, I was looking to transfer an outlook pst file for back from a laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1 to another Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1 system across a wired LAN. The transfer started with 4.95GB to go and stopped at 3.68GB to go. I check on network card traffic and it had dropped to almost nil. So I thought I would do it via sneaker net with an external USB drive. Same outcome - made it to 3.68GB to go and transfer stopped. Then thought I would try logging onto the computer with the file on it and transfer using another computer running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. I got the same outcome.

Can anyone give me any suggestions of where to look to solve this problem?

Thanks

Run chkdsk to see if there is a file system problem:

Press the Window key + the R key to open a Run box.
Type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter. You will see the following:

The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by
process. Would you like to schedule this volume t
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)


Type y and press Enter.
Reboot.

Chkdsk will start, let it run to completion.

Hi Ztrucker,

You know I thought that I had run chkdsk earlier (but perhaps not with the /r option). Anyway - thanks for your help. I kicked it off - went to bed, restarted this morning and tried copying the file and it worked just fine. Once again thanks for your help. I'm sure it save me heaps of time searching aimlessly for a solution.

Best Regards!
