  1. Stuck while copying/deleting files


    Hey,

    I recently got Windows 10 and I have a problem : When I try to copy or delete files, the operation will sometimes stops with "0,00 elements/s" and then I can't cancel the operation, I can pause it but it doesn't do anything.

    As additional information that might be useful : I have 3 internal hard drive (C: Drive for windows (SSD), D: Drive for my documents and such (not SSD), F: Drive for my programs (SSD)

    When it happens :

    >It seems to get stuck randomly during the operation (19%, 34%, [...] 51%, 95%...)

    >I can still access the files where the operation is happening

    >Windows Explorer doesn't seems to use lots of memory after it get stuck

    It's happened :

    >while trying to delete some files on my 2TB internal Hard drive (D)

    >while trying to copy videos on D drive from an external SD card

    >while trying to copy files from my D drive to my F drive

    What I have tried :

    >Completely reinstalled windows from scratch



    It seems that it mostly happens on my D drive and it would be easy to think it's the problem

    However, it worked perfectly fine before I upgraded on windows 10 a few days ago, so I don't understand why it would act like that all of sudden.

    Here's a screenshot of when it get stuck : Link (even if it says (45 seconds remaining nothing happens)

    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

    I got a pre-patience step when the msg "Windows can't be installed on this drive" came up and took time to get past. My NE522 did pass that step and is now stuck on copying files. It is a contest now to see if the man can be more patient then the machine!

    *Nerd IT WORKS! In this day of "non-instant means broke" patience still works.
