Was if you used the command line to copy. The command line has been around for decades so I'll pause here.
Hi, I am having problems copying photos to a usb stick. The laptop recognizes the stick and I can see older files that are on the usb, but the laptop will not let me copy/drag new photos/documents to it. Just says Windows Explorer has stopped working, and then it restarts. I also can't copy/paste photos from one picture file to another, or copy photos/documents to a CD/DVD as they also cause windows to stop working and restart. (However, I can copy/paste photos/documents to Wordpad).
As per googled suggestions I have tried different USB sticks and ports, run updates, tried it in safe mode, ran a system file checker, did the "test for picture files that may contain corruption", hard drive scan, cleared clipboard, checked memory, ran Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, Malwarebyte anti-malware and Junk Removal Tool, and SUPERAntiSpyware. Nothing helped. I am unable to try an in place upgrade as my laptop didn't come with discs.
The laptop is about 5 years old. Acer Aspire 7755. Windows 7. Thanks for any help you can offer.
