Transfer Group Of Files From Flash Drive

Windows xp has 'file' and 'edit' nothing remotely like them on 7, i want to transfer a group of files from a flash drive as a group, not singular, in one or at most 2 steps. Ie. There is no 'move. ' or 'copy.

Slow Transfer Speed To Usb 2.0 Flash Drive

I know that this topic has appeared once or twice in these forums but there haven't been any resolutions and they've been quiet lately so i started a new one. Recently, i migrated from windows xp to 7 and found this problem. When i try to copy a file (a 1. 2gb video) to a usb flash drive that i know is usb 2. 0 hi-speed (copying files to it in xp were really fast) it takes over 2 minutes. 7 reports that it is copying at 3-4 mb/sec. When i copy from the flash drive to my computer it copies at about 9-10mb/sec.

I've also tried plugging it into the rear ports but that doesn't change the transfer speed at all. I know it isn't something related to the flash stick itself because transferring files to it in xp were a lot faster. Some random information: transferring files from one hard drive to another averages at about 60mb/sec (both of the hard drives are sata ii drives).

I'm not sure what speed it should be but it doesn't feel drastically slower than on my xp machine. Windows 7 and my device drivers are all up-to-date.system specs:dell optiplex gx620 pentium 4 3. 2ghz2 gb ram windows 7 professional 32-bit avg 9 free edition anti-virus my setup is almost identical to how it was on my windows xp machine except i have less programs installed so there isn't something new that could have caused problems.

Usb Data Transfer Timeout With Large Files

I am experiencing a ton of problems with usb data transfer. I'm unable to transfer any large files or multiple files at once. The flash drive or external hard drive will time out and eventually the pc will "lose" it and won't be able to locate the files i was trying to transfer. In addition, i'm not able to sync up my new ipad and i'm assuming it's caused by the same issue. The odd thing is, i'm able to use my printer via usb without any problems.

I found some info on this problem (at least i'm assuming this is the same thing)

And here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976972. When i first found out about the windows hot fix, i downloaded it and tried to install, but it said i've already installed it. Clearly it didn't work for me because i'm still having this problem. I actually started experiencing this problem with windows vista x64 and have since upgraded to windows 7.

Blue Screen When Transfer Large Amount Of Data Over Usb

Blue screen -apc_index_mismatch - trying to transfer large amount of data over usb. I am currently using windows 7 - 64 bit and whenever i try to transfer large amounts of data from my iphone or my external hard drive the system shuts down and i get the blue screen that says: apc_index_mismatch.

I just bought this computer around september 09 and it had windows vista - 64bit loaded on it. A couple of months after that i received the free upgrade to windows 7.

That is when the blue screen started to happen. At first it was happening when i was my iphone was trying to sync and transfer my music over, which made me think that the iphone was not working with windows 7. But i realized that it was the usb when i was trying to transfer some data from my external hard drive to my computer and the system crashed.

Does anyone know what is going on here?

Some more info from the blue screen:

*** Stop:  0x00000001 (0x0000000076f6040a, 0x0000000000000000, 0x000000000000ffff, 0xfffff8800820bca0)

Large File Will Not Delete

I have accidentally created an 11gb video file due to a clip being looped. Now i need to delete this useless file. However, windows will not delete the file. Every time i try to delete it, the "preparing to delete" dialog box simply hangs. I have waited for > 10 minutes with no success.

I have read that file indexing can cause problems with deleting large files, so i have disabled it for my c drive and deleted the index. This does not help the situation. I can also not access the file properties by right-clicking on the file name, the dialog box just won't pop up.

I am running windows 7 home premium 32-bits. How can i delete this file?  I have also tried to overwrite the file by saving over it and that doesn't work either.

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.

Usb Flash Drive Error - Volume Does Not Contain Recognized File System

I plugged in my usb flash drive into a computer using windows 7. It always prompts me to scan and fix or cancel. I canceled every time, but i got annoyed with it popping up every time, so i told it to scan and fix. A loading screen came up so i patiently waited. After completion it asks to format my usb flash drive. I can't format it though because i have homework files and all my other personal files on there. So i canceled the format, but every time i plug it into my computer it asks t format it. I even plugged it into a computer running on windows xp and it wanted to format it.

When i try to run it without formatting it it says, "e: is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. " My question is, what did windows 7 do to my flash drive and how do i recover my data?

C: Drive Size Is Becoming Large

I used an upgrade disc to upgrade to w7 from vista (clean install) 2 days ago and the size of c drive (w7) is 116. 52 gb! What is causing it to be so large ? Shouldn't it only occupy 25 gb or so ? The windows old file has been deleted. So what is causing the upgrade installation of w7 to take 116. 62 gb ? ( That is not counting the 14. 65 gb recovery partition the system partition  alone is 116. 62 gb. In total the upgrade took an entire 131. 27 gb. What is wrong?

Obex File Transfer

I have windows 7 home premium 32bit. From time to time i am using usb bluetooth dongle(chipset broadcom 2045), which is without a problem detected and all drivers are installed properly by windows. Only problem which i have is with obex file transfer. I can send to my paired phone(nokia 6300) any amount of files in terms of quantity or size, as far as there is enough space on phone memory card, but not conrarywise - from phone to pc.

Always when i send something from phone to pc, what si larger than cca 300-310kb transfer fails. Has somebody an idea if this is nokia problem or problem in microsoft bluetooth stack? Why is it working only one way, from pc to phonelso is there some way how to browse paired phone through windows explorer the same way like with 3rd party software from widcomm or bluesoleil?

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?

Extract From Easy Transfer File

I upgraded from vista home premium  to windows 7 professional and used the easy transfer to move my files and settings which were saved on an external hard drive.

I made the conversion and everything worked fine. Unfortunately, after the conversion one of my files got corrupted(due to my own mistake) and is no longer available. The file "saveddata. Mig" is still available on my external drive which prompts the following questions: is it possible to extract a specific file from "saveddata. Mig"? If so, how would i go about it?

Easy File Transfer Problems

I was converting from windows xp to windows 7. I ran 'easy file tranfer' and copied my 'setting' to a usb stick. They were saved as a folder with the name 'usmt2img. Dat'. This apparently contained no files, but has a size of 353, 724. I ran 'easy file transfer' and copied settings and files to and external hard drive. These were save as a folder usmt2. Unc containing the files  'img00001. Dat', ' img00002. Dat', 'img00003'. Dat and another file of 1kb called 'status'.
 
I installed windows 7 and ran 'easy file tranfer' to restore my settings. It ran until i indicated where the files were located on the usb stick, and the files did not appear in the open folder.
I then tried with the external hard drive, and again in ran  until i indicated where the files were located on the drive, and the files did not appear in the open folder. This time when i typed the file names into the space provided, easy file tranfer' started to run, then said  'cannot open files'.
 
How can i recover my settings? (I have the 'my documents' files backed up at another location, but i need my old e-mails and address book particularly. )

Windows Easy Transfer Can Not Open File

I used vista 32bit windows easy tranfer version 6. 1 to save files to a usb disk drive. I set an encryption password. Transfer completed successfully. 17 mig files created (. Mig, . Mig01-. Mig16).

I tried to recover the files on a new system (64bit windows 7 home premium and again with 32bit windows 7 professional). Wet accepted password, but both attempts fail with the same message "windows easy transfer can not open file".

Old system: 32bit vista home premium service pack 2
New system: either 64bit windows 7 home premium or 32bit windows 7 professional (which ever works with wet).

File Size Limitations And Transfer Problem

I've recently upgraded from vista 64 to windows 7 64, but have encountered a very annoying problem. I can't seem to edit files (mainly . Wav) without the error message saying i don't have enough memory. This is not true seeing as i got 2x 1 tb hard drives and 8 gb of ram. Also transferring files to, for example, my iphone will only work if the number of files is lower than 200 mb in total. The transfer usually stops and i get a time-out message on my phone. As i said very annoying. Has anyone encountered this as well?

Undo Windows Easy File Transfer

Somebody asked about reversing windows easy file transfer and the answer was simply to delete the files that were transferred. My question is - when the transfer was made did any of the files make changes to the system. How about using restore instead?

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?

Easy File Transfer Won't Open Files

I am upgrading from xp (32 bit) to win 7 home premium (64 bit). I downloaded easy file transfer for xp 32 bit and put my files on a jump drive. I installed win 7 and ran easy file transfer and tried to get the files off the jump drive and it tells me easy transfer can't open the files. Also, i have a clone of my win xp on another hd can i use win 7 easy file transfer to get the files directly off that hd? If so, how? I don't see an option for that in easy transfer.

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Transfer Xp Files Over Other Drive With Win7

Can i have a drive with windows 7 on it and another with windows xp and then transfer xp files over? I tried to upgrade to windows xp sp3 and it messed my system up really bad. Can't get out of safe mode. After several days of trying i finally decided to just go buy windows 7 and a tb+ hard drive.
I currently have two drives. I plan to remove one, stick in the terabyte sized drive, format it and put windows 7 on it.

My questions are: 1. Will i then be able to transfer files from my previous primary drive to this new one running windows 7 if the old primary drive has windows xp on it? Question 2? Will the old primary drive automatically become windows 7 thereby messing up all its files?

Easy Transfer Drive Mapping

I am having issues with an xp-win 7 upgrade. When i use wet utility it tries to install all my files onto my small c:drive. The original . Mig file comes from a computer with c: j: k: drives. The new comp just has c: and d:. Why isn't it giving me an option to map the drives when i upgrade? It tries to install on c drive then gives up when it runs out of space.

When i look at the map drive tab in wet it says 'no drives are available for mapping. ' i have tried using the same file on a vista laptop and easy transfer works perfectly - it gives me an option of where to install my files. I have tried renaming the d: drive on my win 7 machine to m and j to see if this would force east transfer to give me an option of mapping drives - but it hasn't worked.
