I normally highlight the file/files I wish to copy or move and then use ctrl-c or ctrl-x for copying or moving. sometimes these keys don't work and I have to use the menus for copy, cut and paste. (I never had this sort of problem with XP.)
I have had other problems with ghost files/drives. I also get odd messages like Jane B Burka - Procrastination is not present on drive x where x is the drive I am trying to copy the file to - not from!
I have a drive called Backup. It shows as drive G:. It is a 610Gb drive with 607Gb free. Every time I try to copy stuff to this drive, one or two files copy then copying stops. The apparently copied files can't be copied - they are ghosts.
Should I go back to XP or switch to Linux Mint?
I have just lost a regular download folder on J: called J:/Books/rar&zip.
The message I get when I try to download a file to this folder is 'File not found' It should be (if it applies) 'Folder not found.' It has been my regular download folder for Rar and Zip books for some months. Windows 7 has lost it somehow.
