I've been researching this issue and have found 2 possible fixes:

1) Disable Remote Differential Compression (Go to Start...Control Panel...Uninstall a Program...Turn Windows Features On or Off...and remove the check mark from Remote Differential Compression).

2) A possible issue with network copying: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931770/
You can get the hotfix from MS, or you can try this link (I haven't tried it myself):

Will post more once I see how this works for me.

Hey usama
I am not sure if this is the same prob I am experiencing... I recently tried to copy all of my home pics from my desktop to my new laptop. The older desktop is a dell inspirion 3000 (i think its a inspirion). any way I bought it in 04. Now I just got a new HP tx1120us laptop w/ Windows Vista installed.
I have since noticed 2 very aggrivating probs:
1. I tried to download the pictures I have to a CD then move them to the laptop. I know there a re other ways to do this - including Esy File transfer - but do not have the cable reqd - besides I figured that since it burned these files (@ 700mb worth -enought to fill a CDR) on my old desktop in @ 4 min - that it should really copy to my new laptop w/in @ 2 min due to the fact the laptop has increased memory / RAM (i think). Why then is it getting stuck and failing to copy these files it starts - gets about 3/4 of the way done and then just locks up - will do nothing more. I have tried multiple times with different CD's and even transfering diff info (in case one of the photos was corrupt- which I doubt since i took them all) . So again I am curious as to why this prob is happening.

2. Is the fact that since I have noticed this, I have also noticed that I have downloaded pics/ files to my docs folder (I am a professional photgrapher) and when I go back to view them - the folder that i placed them in is there - but the picture is not anymore. This prob (as with the other is about to force me to return my computer and go back to XP due to the fact that I depend so heavily on the ability to store and retrieve my files.

So any help / direction you could impart on me would be most appreciated!

How do you copy the files to CD? Do you use the Wizard, a right click and "send to", or another method? Have you tried any other copying tools (such as Nero, etc)?

As for the missing files, have you searched your hard drive for them? Vista's directory structure organization is different enough from XP that it does cause issues for users. When searching, first search the Indexed locations - if it doesn't find them there, use the Advanced search to search "Everywhere" - that should locate the files for you. If not, post back and I'll do some more research.

I've just encountered the missing files issue at work. Here's what I've got.

A new Vista computer - could not "see" the contents of folders on a slaved hard drive from an XP installation.
Changed the file options to view hidden and view extensions and it worked to view the files, yet the copy wouldn't work
Took ownership of the files and the copy worked - but the prompts indicated that there was something telling the copy process not to copy the files the last time I tried it.

In short, this fix works, but it doesn't "fix" the root of the issue. I'll post more as I find out more.
