Error Copying files to disk


Data copying is a great technique to backup files. Somehow, if this process gets problematic, it becomes painful.

It seems like you are trying to copy the required file that is under system control. In the “system32” folder, every file is protected by administration power.

You have to boot in the safe mode and then, should able to copy the file.

Also, do a clean boot. In order to do that, go to Start >> type “Run” and press enter >> type and enter “msconfig” >> “Services” tab >> check the “Hide all Microsoft services” >> “Disable all” >> “Apply” >> “OK”. Then restart your PC and you should be able to copy the file.

After it is completed, do the job once again to enable all services.

Also, you can use a software called “Force Copy”. It is also a good solution for you.
