HI Experts

We have a Dell 840 server running Windows Server 2003 Standard.  The server runs and boots up fine. Is the the PDC. Recently we have run into problems with Drive F which is a 2 * 500 GB spanned drives.  Files and Folders are visible and accessible.  When we attempt to copy files from this drive to a new 1 TB drive, the server goes blue screen after a certain period of time i,e many folders /Files will copy successfully then blue screen. Reboot is necessary

Any ideas?

You might have hardware issues and/or your file system might be corrupt. This is a good time to check if you have a complete and recent backup of all the data. Plan a chkdsk as soon as possible in order to check the file system (at least).

Try copying using robocopy - which is good for copying huge data and with automatic error correction
