    File explorer Nag - why stop at error or problem - continue on please


    Hi there Was copying around 500GB of files via File explorer between 2 HDD;s. OK system said would take around 20 - 25 mins - so OK I went away to do something else. 40 mins mins later I came back to computer -- the wretched thing had stopped copying after 2 mins with error "File can't be copied" for some silly reason and was prompted to skip / continue. Why on earth can't File explorer complete tasks that it CAN do and then at the end throw up these sorts of errors. Who on earth designs these sorts of programs. As an old fashioned Engineer I was always taught to design systems that would carry on working until it was impossible any more either for safety considerations or system had so many problems it just wasn't capable any more. Maybe modern teaching isn't like that but I believe systems etc should be able to continue to work (safely of course) until it really is impossible any more for them to continue. Just imagine on a commercial large plane if all services stopped functioning because one of the onboard flight computers had diagnosed a trivial problem like a broken bulb or cracked mirror in the toilets. Cheers jimbo

  3. File Explorer stopped working,

    Hi Anthony,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the file explorer stops responding. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise when some of the Windows components or applications gets corrupted. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    I suggest you to follow the steps provided below and check if it helps to resolve the explorer issue.

    • Press Alt+ctr+Del from Desktop.
    • Select Task Manager.
    • Under process tab, locate Windows Explorer.
    • Right Click Windows Explorer and select End Task.
    • Now select on File tab and click Run Task.
    • Type explorer.exe and press ok.
    • Check if the issue persists.
    If the issue persists, I suggest you to
    perform SFC scan and check if it helps to resolve the issue.



    System File Checker (SFC) is a utility in Microsoft Windows that allows users to scan for and restore corruptions in Windows system files. Perform System File Check (SFC), and then check if this fixes the issue.


    • Press the Windows button + X on your keyboard, a mini dialogue box will appear.

      2. Choose Command Prompt (Admin). You must run the command prompt in Administrator level.

      3. On the command prompt type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

      4. If everything went okay and no errors were found, restart your computer and see if the issue re-occurs.
    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
