lmsureshkumar19, try something, hilite the desired text and copy it into a new document in your favorite word processor then save it where you desire it. Same thing, just different method. Maybe your system will like it better? I've only generated that error while trying to locate something on the web?

Would you like to say how you tried to copy? Or are we supposed to guess?

"Hi Ed,M2:

Thanks for your respective responses.

Actually, Ishould have mentioned earlier. I am copying folders from the CD that was created some time in 2000. The folders are opening, however, the files do not. The error displayed is ""An unexpected error occured while reading E:\....."

Thanks again

Right click on a file that does not open,
then click 'Properties'.
Then next to "Target", or "Location", check to make sure the correct Directory is given.

Exactly. Probably the target and start in drive lettering doesn't match whatever letter Windows has changed the drive to. Most users figure that out as soon as encountering rogue shortcuts, ie; the result of users making s-cuts while not realizing the USB drive has been re-letter assigned by the fault ("default") of Windows (short-sightedly nearly always naming USB drives with the next available drive letter).

Maybe someday, MS will actually allow for that utility to leave 'our' drive letters alone, say whenever we've gone to the effort of naming the drive and assigning it the letter of our choice? Then again, affording a utility that can be un-dumbed, would mean actually putting more than minimal thought into software designs.
