Making new folder and copy folder from harddrive to flash

When I try to add a new folder I get a message saying cannot create file or folder. When I try to copy folders, it copies some folder, then I get the above message, though the flash has more than enough space for the file or folder.

    I have a "home made" tower PC where I have the same prob. I can see the write protect swich on the flas drive(s), but cannot utilise anything small enough to throw it without the fear of damage.

    The message I get reads " Cannot copy ("filename") - The directory or file cannot be created.



    ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

On most flash drives there are locks that are called write protect locks. Its a switch on the drive itself that prevets you from saving on it.

Can't copy large files onto my external harddrive


What format is the external drive ?

you might need to split the file with rar

I recently downloaded win 8 5gb had it split with rar into 2 files downloaded with IDM trial

The FAT32 format does not support single files larger than 5GB, so if you have a file larger than 5GB you cannot put it on your FAT32 thumb drive. Most thumb drives and other portable media devices use FAT32 format, so this setback makes large files less portable, and that just won't do. Get around this problem by compressing the of the file or by splitting the file up into multiple pieces.

Create a folder for your RAR file and insert a copy of the original file into this folder. RARing a file separates it into multiple pieces, so creating a file specifically for your RAR file will keep the files together allowing you to move one folder to your FAT32 device instead of having to locate and move multiple files. Right click the large file that you want to put on a FAT32 device. Select "Add to archive" from the menu that appears to the side. Select "RAR" from the "Archive Format" located to the left of the menu. Click the arrow next to "Split by volume, bytes," and select "CD 700: 700mb." This will create a new file for every 700mbs, meaning your your one large file will be separated into many 700mb files that can be put back together as a single file later. Click "OK." Put the folder, containing your newly separated files, onto your FAT32 device after WinRAR has finished separating the file. b> Zip File b> Right click the large file you want to put on a FAT32 device. Select "Add to archive" from the menu that appears to the side of the file. Click "OK" on the next menu. This menu allows you to customize the compression settings. The only option you need to change is the "RAR" selection to "ZIP" in the "Archive Format." The rest of the default settings will work fine, so there's no need to change anything else. The zipped file will appear in the same folder as the original. Delete the copy of the original large file from the folder and put your newly compressed file on your FAT32 device after the file has completely compressed. The time it takes for the file to finish compressing depends on the of the file. Hope this helps. http://www.all-freeware.com/getfreeware.html?pid=109090&mirror=1

Malware on external hard drive is hidding files


OK you harddrive is infected with Malware. This Malware creats shortcuts of each folder and Hide the all those your main folder.
You can scan your Hardrive with fully updated Anti Virus apllication .

To see all your original folder you can enable your Shown hidden File option from your Folder option--View--uncheck show hidden files and folder--and uncheck hide protected operating system files.

Here is the step to unhide your all files and folder in one go.
Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your flash drive and also from drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your flash drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Now press "Enter".


this should solve your problem.

There isnt really a limit of the number of files, but there is a limit on space.

If you go into "my computer"(windows xp) or "computer" (windows vista/7)
and right click on the icon for your SanDisk. Choose properties, and it should give you a nice pie graph to show your free space.

If there is free space left, then it is safe to say that there is something else going on.

If not, you are out of space!

Cheers!

Sounds like the F.A.T. (File Allocation Table) is bad on the drive. Try to format it and then copy everything back to it once again.

Copied files to a folder on portable harddrive


1. Try creating another folder and coping the content from the original to the new folder on the USB drive.
You may have stopped the coping process inadvertently during the copy process.

Flashdrive


1. I would need to know exactly what brand and size of flash drive you're dealing with.

2. I'm not going to condem you for using XP home but you should really consider switching to XP pro ... thats a strong suggestion because XP home will fail to install in certan situations such as nforce2 ( reasons undisclosed by microsoft )
it is because of driver issues with nforce2 on the native XP home CD.

3. All of the files on your particular "USB flash/thumb/harddrive drive" could be write protected , as a result copy operations may fail. attempt to assertain if that is the situation happening to you.

4. I'm a hardware monkey , I like to take total control of hardware so that I can use it to it's fullest potential , sometimes this is a good thing , sometimes it is not , it just depends on a few factors to make that determination.

I enjoy nothing more than helping a fellow hardware monkey.

feel free to bother me about any seamingly insignificant hardware issue , and I'm not bad with software either :->

try copying the files to a subfolder. The FAT file system has a limit of how many files & file name characters you can store in the root folder.

Disk full message


Do a bit of arithmetic - go to each folder right click, then click on properties and take note of the size of each folder. What does that add up to? Any unusually large files? Has it been partitioned at all?
