Click Try Again and the folder moves as is should.
I see this error posted all over the net. The problem always occurs when someone deletes a folder or any file for that matter.
I get this message only when I move or rename any folder or zip file any where on any drive. No other file types are affected by this. Copying folders or zip files does not create this message.
I have been using Windows Double Explorer from time to time and I get the messages using that as well, but not with Directory Opus.
In the screen shots I have provided, all I did was drag and drop Example folder to Example1 folder and the same for New WinZip File.zip to Example1 folder.
I have not been able to find a solution anywhere for this. I figure that is has something to do with file associations or something along those lines but I just can't be certain.
Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
Can we assume you dont have a backup from before the problem started? DO you have a win 7 dvd to do a repair install?
Hello Ken, yes I do have my disc but I don't think I have a back up. I'm still using the first install of Windows 7. If there is no fix I will just reinstall. I bought a retail copy this time (instead of OEM with my XP) so I would be able to upgrade and/or install as many times as I like.
I'm still very frustrated with how Windows 7 behaves (no "Remember each folders view settings" is just the most pathetic omission there could ever be
) with some software and games ie Crysis and FarCry2 simply will not run on my machine. Half Life 2 and other Valve games will not display textures properly as well and there are other games which either do not run or won't run properly. So I will work as many kinks out as I can before I reinstall.
If there is no fix for this problem I will deal with it until its time to reinstall. Having to use 3rd party software to do things that XP did perfectly is just a shame and a joke. I can't believe I fell for the hype. When I found out that Windows 7 SP1 was not going to include the "Remember each folders view settings" I was not happy. I can't believe MS could not fix the code for "Remember each folders view settings" because of the useless snap feature. Sorry had to vent there.
Also, I will be using an Advanced Format drive soon (WD15EARS) as my system drive but I will have to wait to use it because no imaging software will write to the proper sectors yet.
Thanks for your time. I will be checking the thread to see if anyone does have a fix or needs more info to diagnose.
I will give Windows 7 64bit credit for two things though, it has not crashed (ever) and with all the software I've installed and uninstalled its has not slowed down one bit! I have not been maintaining this installation at all, save Puran Defrag, I'm just letting it go because I will reinstall later anyway.
