Hi, This type of error generally occurs when you do not have IO (input / output) permissions on the directory.

For this you need write permission in the Vivek directory. Please try the following command.

sudo chmod +w /media/vivek.

Or just blast the files with a sudo cp sudo cp …rest of your command

Hi Michael W Rayner,

Have you checked for hidden files and folders on your USB drive? You might need to perform a complete scan of your computer including your USB drive to fix this problem.

1. Download the latest updates on your antivirus software.

2. Scan your computer and USB drive for malicious files, programs and processes.

3. Follow the instructions provided by your antivirus program for cleanup and removal of unwanted files.

Hope this works.
