Hello, I have an issue I was hoping someone could help me with. I keep getting an I/O Device error when copying files from my C: drive to my external HD. I also get a message sometimes that says cannot copy the file, the path is too deep. Then my computer freezes and I have to reactivate my desktop.

Any help is greatly appreciated
thanks

This can be caused by a faulty external drive. What type of drive do you have?

You should run a diagnostic test on the hard drive. You can download some diagnostic software from the Western Digital website.
