I suddenly started receiving the following error message when I try to write to a USB thumb-type drive. This error occurred with 3 different memory sticks. "The specified I/O operation on Device\Harddisk7\DR7 was not completed before the time-out period expired". I was able to copy small falls, but received a subsequent message that the path was too deep when trying to copy a larger file.
