have you ran an anti spy and virus scanner to ensure that isn't the problem? Spybot searh and destroy is a good one for spyware. Glary utilities is an excellent freeware that will clean your registry. AVG or AVAST are good free antivirus programs.

if all this fails, a XP repair installation should do the trick. I had a similar problem with not being able to send files to email from a folder and a repair install was the only way to get it fixed.

PS. Are you able to copy from one folder to another on the same drive? Maybe there is a problem with your permissions on one of the drives

no buddy..Its still the same.no difference...what do i do now.

First please tell us which OS are you using?
Are you trying to copy the data to another partition on the same Hard Drive or to another Hard Drive?

If you are trying to copy the data from one partition to another in the same Hard Drive than make sure that another partition is properly formatted.

Just go to My Computer and right click on the (destination)partition where you want to paste the copied data and click on format.

properly format that partition or the Hard Drive where you want to copy the data and then try doing it.

Are you trying to upgrade or just reinstall the Windows XP?

1st of all upgrading OS has nothing to do with the problem of data copying.

There could be a problem with the partition or the Hard Drive where you want to copy the data?

1st tell us which OS are you using ?


Just boot your computer normally as you do and then go to command prompt and use the command "Chkdsk /r"

Use this command and then let us know what result you get from this.

It might also be that the files do not exist on the source disk, or that the destination disk is full.
