Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive


Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Error When Trying To Copy/paste File From External Drive

I have a new computer with a windows 7 professional 64-bit operating system (500gb drive; 8gb ram). I have two external drives, each of which has a vpc on it. I use the vpcs for training purposes. They are virtually (no pun intended) identical, so one functions as a backup if something goes wrong with the other. One vpc has problems, so i want to overwrite it with the . Vmc and . Vhd files from the other vpc.

I've done this before (on my previous computer, which had windows xp-pro). I successfully copied the . Vmc file and the hard disk 2 . Vhd file, but it won't copy the hard disk 1 . Vhd file. I get an error message (error 0x8007045d) that says there is an i/o device error. How can i fix this so that it will copy the file?

Copy Slow To Or From External Hard Drive

I have a 64 bit i7 960 processor running windows 7 home premium when i try to copy a file to or from a usb connected 1 terabyte ext drive the copy starts out at 40mb a sec and degrades down to 2 or3 mb a second some times it drops below 1 mb a sec.

Cannot Read / Copy Jpg From External Drive

I just upgraded to windows 7 premium 64bit. Then i started to copy jpegs from my external hard drive to my new pc internal hard drive. This external hard drive was managed by xp previously.

Suddenly windows 7 complained. It tells me that the file or path does not exist. With some investigation i found that all jpegs larger than 1mb cannot be read or copied. Smaller files are fine. Then i tried to copy my latest photos from my camera's sd card. Same problem. However, windows 7 then asked if i wanted to fix a problem on the card. I decided not to and "imported" the images by choosing it as one of the options in the pop-up box. It then worked.

So manually trying to read, open, thumbnail preview or copy any jpeg larger than 1mb does not work at all only since i have moved from xp to windows 7 64bit. Why is this? How can i solve the problem?

Unable To Create A System Image On External Drive

In "backup and restore" i opt for create a system image. A dialog box pops up with the following error message: the backup application could not start due to an internal error. Server execution failed (0x80080005)  it should be noted that i performed a system backup to the same external drive earlier this morning and it appeared to be successful. I am doing all of this backing up because i am getting the blue screen and plan to try geek squad on line to help me with it. Want to be backed up first.

Backup Create System Image On External / Network Drive

I am running windows 7 home premium 64bit and i have 2 internal hdds plus a networked windows home server. When i go to backup and select create system image i am only shown the option of backing up the system drive (c drive) and not the other hdd (d drive). And as destination for the backup of the system drive i am presented with no option other than the d drive. I am not shown the option of an external drive or the whs network drive. Apparently the option of an external or network drive should be available as long as they are ntfs formatted.could it be that these options are not available for the home premium edition?

Creating System Image On External Usb Hard Drive

Creating a system image on an external usb 2. 0 hard drive
Applies to: windows | windows 7 | system repair and recovery

We have a new hp g60-533cl notebook running windows 7 64-bit home premium. Attached to it is a new hp usb 2. 0, 500 gb pocket media drive (pmd). I use windows 7 to create a system image of the laptop's hard disk(s) onto the pmd. In the windows 7, create a system image dialog box you see the following selected drives:

Drive used space

System (system) 33. 66 mb
(C:) (system) 40. 76 gb
Recovery (d:) (system) 9. 87 gb

Space required to save a backup of the selected drives: 50. 66 gb

I watch the winodws 7 progress thermometer as it creates the image for these drives, and you see that all 3 drives are "imaged" to the pmd. Once the process has successfully completed, the pmd has a folder on it titled, "windowsimagebackup".

I then right-click on this folder and select properties. It provides me with the following information.

Location: f:
Size: 33. 9 gb (36, 501, 698, 638 bytes)
Size on disk: 33. 9 gb (36, 501, 749, 760 bytes)
Contains: 21 files, 4 folders

My question: why are there only 33. 9 gb of information saved to the image, when the 3 drives listed above required 50. 66 gb of space? Is all of the information listed above actually being saved? What's happening ?

Installation File Won't Run Without Iso Burning Software

Problem installing downloaded version of windows 7 professional on a netbook running xp with no external dvd drive - installation file won't run without iso burning software. I downloaded windows 7 professional to install on my netbook running windows xp - the help indicated that this would be possible and would avoid the need for an external dvd drive but because it needs to be a clean install the file downloaded is a . Iso file which i guess needs to be burnt to a cd to run?

Is there any way of getting round this without getting an external dvd drive, possibly by using alcohol120% to mount it on a virtual drive - i guess this could be a problem with a clean install, so would it work if i put it on my external hard drive?

How To Determine Dpi Of Png Image In Explorer?

In windows xp and vista, to determine the dpi of a png image, i could right-click, go to properties, then the summary tab, and there were entries for horizontal resolution and vertical resolution of the png along with the width, height, and bit depth.

However, in windows 7, when i go to the properties, i only see width, height, and bit depth. For jpg's i also see the dpi, but not for png's.

Is there an additional setting i need to turn on? Is there somewhere else i should be looking to find the dpi information?

Shadow Copy Storage File Issue

I noted the amt of free space on my c: drive drop almost 5gb overnight. I had not installed anything new so it seemed a mystery. Windows did install several critical updates. But nothing equaling 5gb. Knowing a restore point was created before the update i checked under advanced settings system protection. And my setting for max usage is at the 4% (23. 24gb)which is where i set it. However, current usage size is 27. 34gb. The difference certainly explains away most of the 5gb of free space i lost overnight.

I did run the shadow space command from a cmd line to be sure it showed the same information, and, it did. I thought as the space reached its max allotted size that it would drop older restore points and not exceed the allotted space? Since i have the max usage set at 23. 24gb. Then how is it that the current usage is 27. 34gb

Cannot Copy Large File Between Usb Drives

Using windows 7. Have two 1tb ntfs drives and i'm trying to copy a 600g music folder from drive g to drive e. Original file from a third drive was put trough a tag editor and saved to drive g successfully. Have tried copy/paste, drag and drop and send to options. The drag and select show 13k items selected but when released over the intended folder, the copy files window pops up then disappears. Trying break into smaller transfers, was able to transfer half the "a"'s (716 folders) then was only able to transfer single folders.

There are some files where the location was lost in the renaming process or folders that got duplicated which show up as conflicts or options to skip copy or merge two folders in the file copy process at the end of the transfer. I am able to transfer files between the drives, just not this large folder. Western digital support says it's an operating system issue. I acquired the original files from four separate drives  by drag and drop recently with no issues. In compiling all the folders, maybe some errors have crept in, but i can't figure out how to find and eliminate them.

Network File Copy Hangs When Device List Changes

This is a problem with two parts.

Part 1: the first is that if i start a copy of a large file from a network drive to a local disk, and then, whilst that copy is happening, dismount a drive such as a usb drive, then there is a good chance that the copy will stall and never complete. The copy progress dialog remains, and continues to animate, however the actual copy process stops. This has happened ever since i installed win7 ultimate, and after this happens the only way out is to press the reset button. This leads me into the second part.

Part 2: once the copy has stalled, there is no way to cancel it, or to kill the process doing the copy. In the past, with winxp, i would use task manager to kill explorer.exe if something like this happened, but killing this "hung" copy seems to be beyond task manager with win7. From my reading, the act of killing a process is more of a request with win7 whereas with winxp it was a command
.
I have tried to use the taskkill from within a command prompt to kill the hung process. Taskkill reports success, however the hung process remains, as does the copy progress dialog. My last resort is to restart the pc, but when i do this, i get a warning about having to force the process to die. I accept the warning and tell it to do so, but the pc never, ever, ever restarts. My only option now is to press the reset button. This problem has been here since win7 was released. I'd like to see a solution.

1. The copy process should not hang, or if it depends on a stable device list, then the dismount should be forced to wait.

2. If i am an administrator, i should be able to force any process to die.

Are there any other options?

Print Problem - Ie Prints Pdf File As Mirror Image

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is. I have asked hp (printer manufacturer) and they say that since it prints ok from the desktop, it is not a printer problem.

File Crashes Explorer

A file i have been downloading for a game via bittorent (legal mod for a game) that i was re downloaded to play with friends has been giving me some trouble. It started with bittorrent locking up when trying to check the files after i re started it, so i thought it was the program and uninstalled it and went to delete the 2 files i was downloading. When i try to delete the files it would bring up the recycle task bar and start locking up my computer and eventually crash explorer, even after that i can hear my hard drive making noise so i ran virus scans (avg), hijack this, ccleaner, seagates hard driver check (to see if it was dieing).

And nothing came up. I know have the two files sitting there and if i do anything to them, try to move them, right click them, etc explorer will freeze and crash. And even after it comes back on i can hear my hard drive accessing data or trying to do something. So my best guess is the files got corrupt during the download when i stopped the download and for some reason wont allow me to touch them. Any ideas?

How To Assign A Thumbnail Image To .avi Movie File In Media Center?

How do i assign a thumbnail image to an . Avi file to show up in "movies" section? When i go to the "movies" screen in windows media center, the files are designated with a plain colored box with the title of the movie, and that's it. I know there is a way to assign an image to the movie, just like media center shows the album covers when i go to my music library. I cannot figure it out. There is no field for an image in the metadata, and i have tried putting a .jpg with the same name as the movie title and that has not worked either. Can anyone help?

Replacing Explorer.exe File For Themes

I downloaded a new theme for windows 7, however, i am nervous about replacing the explorer.exe file as instructed. By default, i would think that's a bad idea. But since i'm still learning my way around windows 7, i'm not sure if this is supported as i can't seem to find anything on microsoft's site saying that it's acceptable or not. Has anyone done this when installing new themes in windows 7?

File Transfer To External Hdd

External hdd: adata nh-92 500gb
Computer: asus g51jx

I'm trying to move an iso file from my desktop to the aforementioned external hdd, but when i drag the file over to the hdd, i get a window that pops up saying that "the file is too large for the destination file system. " Is the problem really because the file is too big (7. 86 gb), or is there something that might be wrong with my computer? I think it may be because of my laptop because i got this file from my friend's external hdd, so if he could copy it on to his external, why can't i?

Usb External Hdd File Transfer Stops

I have a dell xps m1530 laptop. I upgraded to w7 pro 32 bit via a clean install from vista home premium. My external usb  hdd (freecom toughdrive pro 320gb) used to work fine, and still does on other computers, including xp, vista and another w7 desktop machine. On my upgraded laptopi get problems transferring large files from the usb drive, the drive light goes out (but i can still hear it whirring), the copy operation hangs, and i can no longer browse through the drive in windows explorer. Bizarrely the drive still shows up in "safely remove hardware".

It also shows up still in device manager, with no warning symbols next to any device. I've tried seeing if the drive shows up in disk management, but that won't start unless i unplug it. My problem seems similar to the well documented problem with external drives on w7 64bit and nvidia chipsets with over 4gb ram. That issue has a hotfix. My system is 32bit though. I tried the hotfix just in case but to no effect. Any ideas microsoft?

Can't Copy From A Usb Drive

I can copy files from a cd why can't i copy from a usb drive? I know this is hard to believe but i'm having even more trouble with windows 7 security than i had with vista. At least with vista it was easy to turn off uac. So far with windows 7 i have only succeeded in turning down message levels so i get fewer messages for each failure.

I am trying to copy files from a windows 7 desktop to a usb drive and then to a different machine's windows 7 desktop. The target win 7 os say's i don't have permission even though i'm using an admin user account not a standard user account. The files on the original desktop were copied their from a cd without any problems being encountered.

Briefcase Change Sync Copy In Drive

I have been using briefcase for years. I have the original files on the flash drive i wear on a cord around my neck. This particular style of jewelry brands me a geek and proud of it. I have on my desktop computer a set of briefcases. Every morning when i get to my office i sync the files on which i have been working. One touch, it's great. I have on my laptop at home a set of briefcases. Every evening when i get home i plug into my laptop i synch the files on which i have been working. One touch, it's great.

The only part that isn't great is the russian roulette i play with drive numbers. When i set up my new office computers i had several things plugged into the usb ports and the briefcase assined the synch to drive g: instead of drive e: so now i get to my office and plug in my flash drive. I change the drive to e: and synch the briefcases project 1, 3, & 4. Then i change the drive to f: and sync briefcases project 2 & 6. Then i change the drive to g: and sync briefcase project 5.

Yes, i can delete all the briefcases and start over - which is what i will do if i can't find a direct solution. But i would really prefer to finally get some control over the "sync copy in" column.

Also, why the "briefcase is in use on another computer" message. It's not in use on another computer; i am trying to use it myself. It is extremely annoying. If it was in the process of synching i could understand, but it's just sitting there, synced, waiting for me. The flash drive has been disconnected. I should not have to shut down windows explorer to use the files just because it's a briefcase instead of a file folder. Is there any way to stop this message from popping up every time i try to access a file - besides shutting down windows explorer.

My hard drive on my laptop recently crapped out 100%. I purchased a new hard drive, but now need to install the os. My wife's computer has windows 7 on it and i was wondering if it was possible and legal to copy her os to my new hard drive.

Maybe i sounds stupid, but. Well, maybe i am. Please help?
