Move and copy files using drag and drop
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have one of my HDDs networked but it’s doing it on all the other drives, which aren’t.
If I drag and drop one file, you can’t see it before you manually refresh it in the new location, however if you try and drag and drop it again you get the replace or don’t copy option, without actually seeing the new file etc.
I noticed this when I would save a file with firefox and the browser would temporarily freeze for a few seconds, then start downloading.
I have to stop my highlighting, tell windows to stop copying and start high lighting again, only to have it start copying again. This is making it a very long process of trying to move these files. I went to stupid Geek or someplace and did what they said:
HKEY/current/user/desktop then in the right column found DragWidth and DragHeight and changed the values to 20 from 4. Seems like it made things even worse.
I used to be able to do that before I reformatted my laptop. How can I fix this?
When I try to open them in IRFANVIEW the app locks up and has to be closed by the OS. Most of the misbehaving images do display in all the thumbnail sizes of WIN 7. And the thumbnails display a black horizontal line through them at different heights and of different thicknesses. Some images have several lines.
The COPY and MOVE commands stop when they hit one of these files but, using MOVE and telling it to disregard the bad files, I have gotten much of the data off the hard drive. By the way,this process took almost two days as the system settled on a transfer speed between 750 KB/s to a blistering 220 KB/s for 130 GB.
Perhaps related, the hard drive at POST was detected as having corrupted files etc. I always opted to let the system repair which it did. I also downloaded and ran the WD disk check app and it found no problems.
After several of these incidents I figured time was to buy a new hard drive and get data off the ailing one.
Is there a way of retrieving the damaged files? What happened.
Within the last week I have noticed that I am unable to transfer a recently installed icon to a folder to a folder in either the limited user or administrator desktops. Windows updateinstalled four security updates on 12 January 2012 = KB2584146, KB2585542, KB2631813 and KB2644615 shortly before I noticed the problem.
I drag the icon to the folder, respond to the 'provide administrator permission' prompt, if needed, but the icon will not move.
I logged on as Administrator and found that I could still not move, delete or copy the icons.
Using WIndows Explorer with 'show hidden files' enabled I found there was a copy of the shortcut icon in a folder called 'Public Desktop' in a folder called C:\Users\Public\Desktop containing only the offending shortcuts.
Using the Administrator account I can edit these permissions but they do not change after saving.
