The things we take for granted...such as drag and drop copying of folders.I have an HP e9140f that I have upgraded to Windows 7.Once things settled down and all updates had been installed, I attempted my first full backup to a second hard drive.The backup failed and a window appears that says:
Item Not Found (title bar)
Could not find this item
This is no longer located in (the folder I am copying to)).Verify the item's location and try again.
I then have two choices: "Try Again" or "Cancel" ... The first does nothing but recycled and Cancel often stalls to the point I am looking for my baseball bat.
Now, the same thing happens when I try to drag and drop folders or files from the C:\ drive to any other, except for the smallest of files.Copying from the second hard drive to the C:\ drives works fine, but when I attempt to copy from the C:\ drive to another hard drive, CPU use spikes to around 50%, 29% of my 8GB DDR3 ram is in use, then receive the above window notification.
I've tried a variety of things, including copying in safe mode, all resulting in the same problem.When I reboot, I can briefly copy again, until the same stall occurs.
And here's the weird part, although Explorer continues to show the folder and its files on the second hard drive, Properties shows they are not there.Rebooting = they return.
