Re: Copying from one external drive to another: "1 interrupted action"

Hi guys

My experience is that when it so says, your drive is about to be full.

Check the size of your drive and delete any unnecessary files.

That normally helps, or

the drive has not completed its file/folder processing.

In that case, restart your PC and start the process again. That,
mostly, solved my problems.

Cheers.

Hi,

And more importantly, how long have you had the source drive? Try doing a
Check Disk (open the drive’s properties window, go to Tools tab, then select
“check” under “error checking” section).

Cheers,

Hi, Rebecca. The name of the diagnostic software is Speccy with a double c.

The bad news is that both drives are connected to the USB ports on the
computer. I can only assume that my drive is failing. Someone suggested a
piece of diagnostic software to know for sure. It sounded like Spexy? Can
anyone tell me a bit more about this software?

Hi,

I think either the drive needs more power or the source data got corrupted
somehow. Try connecting the source drive to the computer directly i.e. not
going through a USB hub; if it is a USB hard drive (likely), connect the USB
cable to the computer’s USB port directly.

Cheers,

Joseph

Using the alt insert w command brings about more text than was read aloud.
Now the dialog says.

“1 Interrupted Action

Can't read from the source file or disk.

Rebecca,

When the dialog appears you can easily copy the text of the dialog by
virtualizing the window by pressing insert-alt-w.

This key takes the text of the window that you're in and places that text
into the virtual buffer, similar to what happens when you open a Web page.
This means that you can easily read the text with standard reading commands
and you can also copy any or all of that text to the clipboard to have it
ready to paste into an email message.

Hi,

I think we need something more important: can you tell us what the dialog
actually says besides “try again”?

Roger,

You're right that both drives are connected Via USB, and they are music
files. The only button I get is the try again button though. How are you
getting the dialog about properties with the OK button-

I occasionally get this when copying music files. The message says the file
has properties that can't be copied and if I hit the OK, it will then copy.
This always happens if I copy to a drive that is connected by USB. It seems
to never happen if I copy from one drive to another that are connected
directly to the motherboard. I've never understood why this happens but if I
copy without the properties, the file seems to be just like the original
anyhow so guess those properties aren't very important.

I’m trying to copy my music library from 1 3TB external drive to another,

copy and a control v to paste on the other drive. I’m getting “one
interrupted action” and am being asked to press space on the “try again”
button. This happens repeatedly until I finally give up and press escape to
stop it. At first, I thought it was because I was trying to copy too much at
a time. But I am even getting “one interrupted action” with copying just
one file to the drive at a time. I am beyond frustrated
