Windows 7: Bug with copying files to external storage

Bug with copying files to external storage

Hi guys,

Curious little bug I'm getting with my Windows and I was wondering whether anyone has any input.

So I moved my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation to an SSD instead of an HDD, and since then, when copying files to a memory stick, the progress bar for copying goes instantly to a certain amount (could be 60%, 80%, any random amount really) and then stays there until the file actually copies across.

For instance, tonight copying a 1GB file across to a 16GB flash drive, the progress bar went to about 50% and then stayed there until the file completely copied. It copied fine and the 'Time Remaining' field was stuck at Calculating.

I have tried a clean reinstall and the bug is still there.

Has anyone else found this?

Cheers all

I'm going to bump this once to see if anyone new is viewing the board, otherwise I'll close it.
