Explorer error message – Could not find this item

Hello experts

When i am trying to move or rename a zip file or folder just in windows 7 I find this error message:

Could not find this item. This is no longer located in [path]. Verify the item's location and try again.

I am able to click Cancel or Try Again. If i click Try Again and the folder goes as is should.

Also,I find this error message posted all over the internet. All the time the problem happens when somebody removes any file or folder for that subject.

But that is not the problem of mine. Only I see this message when I try to rename or move zip file or any folder anywhere on any drive.

Copying zip files or folders doesn’t make this error. 

I have been running Windows Double Explorer, and I find the errors using that also but not with Directory Opus.


I have supplied in the following images, all I performed was drag and drop Example folder to Example1 folder and the similar for New WinZip File.zip to Example1 folder.

I searched in Google, but i found nothing. I think that is has somewhat to do with the file related.

Please help me to solve this.

Thanks.

Hello Janetdschall,

 

I found out that this is a common Windows 7 problem and some have said that KB980408 is the issue, but I also saw that uninstalling it might not eliminate the problem. Messing with the registry might cause problems if your not careful so do it at your own risk. If you don't want to touch the registry but want to remove that annoying problem then I would suggest to use FolderFix by Tech Jawa. Its free and hassle free.

 

Another solution is to wait for Microsoft to release a patch that fixes that problem.

 

Hope this helps.
