The particular files I'm copying in this case are huge tables of specialized compressed data. Reseating the memory fixed it that time. 4) Maybe the mobo has a defect? I'm stuck with 7 x64 for now because of some legacy software that might not play well with W10. Just to be clear- verification set to ON will verify that the final copied file has the same checksum as the original?

I also discovered I could reproduce the issue with experimentation (I use the term "issue" rather than "error" because there is no outward indication of a problem, and there is no

Especially if a problem may be related with hardware. Teracopy One person there tested extensively and could not generate faulty copies, and the only obvious difference was a different USB controller. Evidence at this point seems to be pointing to NTFS write-caching, which is used by the OS (with no apparent way to disable), but which is not used by the third-party I found a support item that says 7zip has issues with creating large archives, so i'm not sure if it's related.

In that thread discussion, a few posters claim that file transfer corruption is an issue when moving large sets of data from a Win7 machine to an external drive that is Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. use paragon partition manager (free edition) ... If this issue was caused by a Windows bug, it probably would affect way more people than it seems to affect currently.

It's very frustrating to not be able to depend on the native copy operations of Windows 7, but at the moment, that's the case on my system, and I am not It does not solve the problem with WinXP (even SP3) but it shows at least a way to rescue your data. Please, check this bug, is critical! this contact form Also, I first started backing up files using 7zip directly to the external drive and that's when I noticed the errors first.

General Discussion Copied 600K files from external to external, Merge Folder?I just spent like 18 hours copying 600K files, 1.33 TB, from a USB 2.0 ext. In some of those forums, people tried to help them troubleshoot what was causing it only to realize it was happening TO THEM as well, and for who knows how long! Of the 33000 copied files, 1300 have been checked by now, and there are 4 corrupted files (sizes vary: 18MB, 800MB, 3GB and 265GB).

There's too little information to determine any pattern, really, but I notice that the only Western Digital external drive listed (mine) seems to work, as well as the failure being seen

This may be a difference. This is a very stealthy, insidious issue whose damaging effect may for some go undetected by many for years, if ever. Maybe MSE locks the file while scanning and this interferes with the copying process, just a wild stab in the dark 'no-evidence-kind-of-guess'. Actually, something like that was my (really having any idea of anything) thought either.

I only became aware of this when I realized my files were corrupted after the fact, and after trying everything else to determine what happened now see it has been happening One lesson from all this is it never hurts to keep redundant backups of things.

I think is the chipset. Maybe we should compare the USB chipset ports used in our systems. I do not see corruption on the internal sata interfaces. If that works Windows is somehow corrupted as it wouldn't be a hardware issue.

They all comparedOK.
