RE: Can't copy or move files. Explorer stops responding.
I have the same problem, especially working with Netdrives. Everytime I copy
or move a file from a netdrive to my own harddisk the explorer "stops
working". Surprisingly everything works fine if I copy the file first on my
desktop and then into the respective folder.
Unfortunately I can't install a dual boot on my laptop. I really consider to
throw away my Vista business and do a roll back on XP.
Would like to hear from anyone who found a solution for this explorer problem.
