I am having a problem transfering files around either from a camera to store or from on drive to another [i back up on to an external HD]
It does not seem to matter if i 'copy and paste' or 'drag and drop' when i have 2 or more windows open i try to move a file i get a warning box sayin "windows has discovered an error and is closing down" then all the windows close and i have to start again [the saved files have been lost from the 'clip board' so i have to resave!!

is this an error with vista or do i have a bug and does nay ony have any solutions please??

Vista is very protective of it's files so it does not like some standard treatments. This works though. click here
