Can't copy files or folders in Win98

By bsandrock ·
I am unable to copy files or folders by any method. This happened suddenly for no apparent reason - no system changes.

Can't copy files or folders in Win98

Go back to what you were doing at the time you discovered this and make sure that the configuration is set default in file menu.This does sound bizzare and without an error,it is hard to give answer to what is happening.

Can you open a file in Word or Excel and edit that file. Can you start a new document and save it to disk? Even a read only file can be copied.

You Computer's hard drive may have insufficient space.To resolve this problem use the Win98 Cleanup tool to free up some drive space.Cleanup tool can be accessed by going to the hard drives properties and fining the "cleanup tool" button at the general tab.This action will clean out the Temp internet fiiles folder,recycle bin,downloaded files...
If you are trying to copy files/folder over the network,your server may have a problem.Check with your network Administrator.

Could be a virus...check that FIRST. Then check your disk space...delete all .TMP files and see if you can open them then. Are you on a network? Are there some odd policies in place? What error(s), if any, are being displayed?

Hi,
Please post more information about your computer, your setting...
Do you still have free disk space?
Did any thing else go wrong?
