  1. Trouble Copying Boot Files


    @topgundcp I have the following situation: I am taking the HD out of an older laptop running Win10 version 21H1 and wish to clone it to a newer HD to put into a newer Laptop. I have successfully cloned the drive using AOMEI Backupper but the drive fails to be recognized in the newer laptop. The newer laptop previously had a UEFI system and it's BIOS is configured to boot as such. I saw a thread with your solution showing how to repair the system boot partition and was following those instructions diskpart select disk 1 select par 1 delete partition override create partition EFI format quick fs=FAT32 assign letter=S exit bcdboot F:\Windows /s S: /f UEFIbut when I came to the last step, which is to copy the boot files from your Windows folder to the boot folder I received the following results (M is the volume on the boot drive containing the Windows directory, S is the new boot partition on that drive): C:\Users\Gordon>bcdboot M:\windows /s S: /f UEFI Failure when attempting to copy boot files. I did verify that the M:\windows\boot\efi directory does exist and contains the following: Directory of M:\windows\boot\efi 07/13/2021 08:56 PM <DIR> . 07/13/2021 08:56 PM <DIR> .. 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> bg-BG 07/13/2021 07:29 PM 5,145 boot.stl 07/07/2021 08:43 PM 1,558,840 bootmgfw.efi 07/07/2021 08:43 PM 1,542,456 bootmgr.efi 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> cs-CZ 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> da-DK 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> de-DE 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> el-GR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> en-GB 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> en-US 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> es-ES 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> es-MX 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> et-EE 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> fi-FI 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> fr-CA 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> fr-FR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> hr-HR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> hu-HU 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> it-IT 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> ja-JP 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 17,720 kdnet_uart16550.dll 06/28/2021 09:06 PM 27,464 kdstub.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 31,544 kd_02_10df.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 379,192 kd_02_10ec.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 26,424 kd_02_1137.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 239,928 kd_02_14e4.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 44,344 kd_02_15b3.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 44,344 kd_02_1969.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 31,544 kd_02_19a2.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 20,280 kd_02_1af4.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 298,296 kd_02_8086.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 18,960 kd_07_1415.dll 12/07/2019 05:09 AM 48,952 kd_0C_8086.dll 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> ko-KR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> lt-LT 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> lv-LV 07/07/2021 08:43 PM 1,348,936 memtest.efi 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> nb-NO 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> nl-NL 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> pl-PL 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> pt-BR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> pt-PT 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> qps-ploc 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> ro-RO 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> ru-RU 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> sk-SK 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> sl-SI 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> sr-Latn-RS 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> sv-SE 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> tr-TR 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> uk-UA 12/07/2019 05:08 AM 9,796 winsipolicy.p7b 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> zh-CN 12/07/2019 05:14 AM <DIR> zh-TW 18 File(s) 5,694,165 bytes 38 Dir(s) 421,250,289,664 bytes free This is my current Disk Management view. The only thing I'm wondering about is why the KikiNEW volume shows Healthy Data Partition rather than Primary. Would appreciate any thoughts you might have. As I get older my brain doesn't see the patterns as well as it used to.

    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

    Trouble Copying Boot Files

    Copying files = Trouble with Tribbles

    Hi, *Shock

    Copying files = Trouble with Tribbles. I've been using Terracopy to copy/move files for yrs with no problems; however it doesn't seem to work with W10.

    The W10 copying function works but info presented is cattiwampus. For example I origionally copied 12,999 files & in 1999 folders. But when I copied them to a 2TB USB HD then copied them to W10, the number of files tribbled increased to 207,164files/folders16,805. I used WE > properties in all cases.

    Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Seems strange if W10 is off the mark Win set 30 yr ago. Just think of the Kaos/Money if each city, town, etc used/changed the traffic lite std of Red, Yellow, Green to any color combo they wanted.

    Regards,
