New copy difficulty - Solved!

Postby T J Tulley on Sun Jun 15, 2008 5:05 am

I have used the copy facility from the drop-down mouse menu many times.

Now it is suddenly producing a box headed: "Invalid parameters" when I click "Paste into folder". I am trying to copy an odt file from a hard disc partition to a flash drive already containing some folders - It has worked before - including whole folders - why not now?

This is a sitter for me..! as I faced the same problem while copying files to pocket drive (FAT32)

just make sure that the file name does not have characters thats not supported by FAT32 partition (like : ~ etc). It would be better to remove all the spl characters.

After all these years, I had never considered this issue. I have not yet run into that problem as yet, but when I do, I know how to fix it. Thanks, rbanavara and T J Tully!
