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


Rebecca Kragnes
 

I’m trying to copy my music library from 1 3TB external drive to another, and I believe they are the same brand (though I don’t know what brand for sure). I’m using JAWS, Win10 2004, and windows explorer with a control c to 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

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.

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-

Hi,

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

The dialog says,

“One interrupted action. Copying one item from 01 to 01-  interrupted - 87% complete.” The Only visible button is the try again button which can be activated by the spacebar or alt-r.

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 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

I think you're having another problem. Mine just always says about properties cannot be copied. I never get a try again button--just copy without properties anyway and if I choose this, it just goes ahead and copies the files.

Also, for my two cents

Jaws key or nvda key plus the letter b as in boy forces the screen reader to yak out everything in the window to you.

Also, I have noticed to get from option to option in a dialog of this sort I have to use left and/or right arrow to navigate the choices instead of tab.

Hope this helps,

Rich

Rebecca, could you be trying to transfer from a FAT HD to a NTFS HD or vice versa?  I don't know if that would make a difference or not...just a thought.


Blessings,

Nancy

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-

Hi. When this dialog comes up, try arrowing, either up or down to see if there is a check box that says, do this for all files. It will likely say unchecked. Press the spacebar to check it, then tab to the try again button and press spacebar.

 

See if this works.

 

Cheers.

That error can also be a sign of a failing hard drive, so you might want to use a tool like Speccy to get information about the status of the drive as well. The last time I encountered this error, it was a sign of deeper problems and I ended up having to get the drive replaced shortly after.

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.

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.

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-

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,

Joseph

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 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.
