  • You can try chkdsk /f on the hard drive and see if that helps.

    Also, you can try adding another hard drive to the server and see if that can copy the files.

  • Hi Steve, have you tried to copy files to other external drive or flash drive? Does the same issue occur? Does the issue occur if you copy files via network share?
