    Cannot copy big portions of certain pix folders - ownership problem??


    Hello,

    Not sure if my issue is related to the same W10 update on 28.08.20 mentioned in my post about SyncBack, but although it seems the issue is totally different from the one below, the start is around the same date/occasion:

    It seems an unknown number of my folders has new and strange ownership/permission issues.
    Example.

    I backup most of my stuff on external hdd's 2 or 3 times.
    Since a few days I have problems doing that.
    The pictures are visible on main drive E and backup drives F & H & W, but hundreds of pictures can NOT be copied. Although they already do exist and are visible on the 3 backup drives. Syncing vice versa (after having deleted the synced main part of the collection on E) did not help either. From E to F many existing files can not be copied, from F to E the problem is the same.

    Googling brought me to the ownership/permissions section of Windows (which I hardly understand, no experience).
    But following the recommended steps brought no solution: all permissions are mine - I am the only user of my PC.

    And doing chkdsk repairs and Paragon system file checks did not make any changes - after several hours of patient waitings...

    What is the cause of the trouble?
    And what is the remedy?

    Thanks!
    Wim

    i need help copying and pasting inside windows 10 app folders and subfolders

    • Can you give us the specific locations you are copying from and to?
    • Can you take screenshots of what's going on?
    • Can you take screenshots of the ownership of the directory you're experiencing issues with?
    If you're not comfortable sharing that information, I do understand...but I feel like what was suggested before should've resolved it. Have you tried modifying ownership at the hard drive level? Did you log off/log on or reboot after changing ownership permissions?

    Possibly check Event Viewer security and system logs as well, might be something else...but likely you are getting closer to resolving this just don't have all the permissions adjusted accordingly. But maybe more specific details about your issue, where things are located that you're having issues with, etc. will assist us better in telling you what needs to be done to accomplish what you're seeking to resolve.

  3. Moved a folder from another drive and rename and it still shows as the old folder name in certain places

    Hi Nick,

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check the behavior.

    • Create a new folder name it as 'My Videos'.
    • Now copy/cut and paste the contents which are in the folder "Videos", and delete the folder "Videos".
    • Now check the behavior.
    Please keep us updated with the status of the folder, to assist you further.

    Regards,

    Cannot copy big portions of certain pix folders - ownership problem??

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
