Copying CD files to folder, then copy folder to another hard drive, explorer hangs
If I copy files from a CD to a folder and then copy that folder to
another hard drive Windows Explorer hangs and doesn't copy the files,
or just a few of them.

If I reboot and then copy the folder it works fine. My hard drives
are all SATA. The CD's contain photo files, aprox. 600 megs on
average, up to 25 files or so.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Re: Copying CD files to folder, then copy folder to another hard drive, explorer hangs
It appears that the problem involves stn files (a compressed image
format) and maybe MS indexing. And if I exclude stn files from
indexing and then go back in to that window, it is checked again to be
included in indexing. Can't find a way to get indexing to exclude
these files.

If I do the same steps using just the tiff files on the CD I have no
problems.
