  1. Copy and pasting files and folders is way slower!!!


    Recently I've disabled some of the preinstalled windows features such uninstalling Cortana and disabling windows media player! and I guess that it may be responsible for slowing down some of the features... I know that my device is capable of copying and pasting things at a maximum speed of 10 Gbps and right now it is giving me a speed of about just a megabyte... this is applicable for copying files and folders to the desktop from an internal drive as well...


    please let me know if you can solve my problem...


    a massive thank to you all!

    :)

    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
