I don't use XP anymore but I had a few people tell me they can't copy and paste a file with the same name into the same folder, that they used to be able to. Seems to have started a couple of months ago. This does not appear to be a permissions issue.
On the users desktop (or any other folder; my docs, my music), they have an adobe document (or any other file; word, excel, text) called XXX.
They right click and choose copy. Then go over to an empty spot, in the same folder, desktop, etc. and click paste.
They get an error (see attached):
'Cannot copy 'XXX': The operation completed successfully. Put it doesn't copy. I thought it used and then would place a copy of the same file with either a '(1)' or the word 'copy' next to it. But it has been a while since I used XP. I've seen this on multiple XP machines.
Let me know if you have a solution, and thank you erro-copying-file.JPG
