Error copying file or folder


R

Robert

Using Windows Explorer, I'm trying to copy/move files
from my hard drive to my USB flash drive (128MB). I
successfully copied appx. 18MB of files to this drive,
but now I'm getting the error message: "Cannot copy
<name of file>: The directory or file cannot be
created." The drive obviously is not full, and it worked
up to a point, but now is giving me the error message no
matter what type or size of file I try to copy. Any
suggestions on what the problem is?

Hi Guys, just to update you, finally I found a way to solve it




Do you have error messages?, like :










* Path too long




* Error cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk




* Cannot delete file: Access is denied




* There has been a sharing violation.




* Cannot delete file or folder The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name.





For that I tried it with: http://longpathtool.com/
