Hi,

What would be the easiest way to fix copy paste (nothing happens), hopefully powershell based?

It look like file system error

Try to run CMD as Administrator then put this command

sfc /scannow

It works on our server.

1. In addition to Tom's suggestion of SFC, also run (admin command prompt) dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehelth  Restart the server and test.

2. Are you connecting by Windows Remote Desktop and do you have Printers and Clipboard unchecked?
