Windows 10 unable to copy folders


Recommended Posts

Hi for some reason my PC will not let me copy folders to other partitions or external hard drive

about 9 time out of 10 the copy process starts then the desktop flickers and the copy and past stops

I have run a disk check and scannow and Malwarebytes and there are no problems with malware or the drives

Can someone help please

What type of content are you trying to copy?

What are size of some of the files you try to copy to the drive?

Which file system is the external drive using?

Are any of the files in use when you are attempting to copy them?

Did you try create a new user account to see if the problem persist?
