    Hello.

    Recently I've decided to make another backup to a USB drive of my music.
    All folders went perfectly except for the last folder.
    It gives me this error code. I've tried repairing the USB drive, but that didn't help.
    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    This might indicate one or more corrupted files in the last folder.

    Suggestion:
    1. On the "new backup volume", create a new (empty) folder with the same name as the folder you're trying to copy (the one that won't copy).
    2. Open the folder that won't copy
    3. Try copying the files/folders inside ONE AT A TIME.
    4. Keep handwritten notes as you go along
    5. The point is -- by copying the files/folders individually, you will discover which files/folders "contain the corruption".
    6. If you can discover and identify the corrupted files, you may be able to replace them in the backup with "good copies" from other sources...

    Thank you.

    But this only seems to happen on that drive, I've tried an SD card and it does copy it.
