    [FONT=Open Sans, sans-serif]I am using windows 7 ultimate machine With 1 GB DDR2 Ram
    I have 3 hard discs connected to it.
    1 Hard Disk Is Where I Installed OS
    2. Is First Backup Hard Disk
    3. Where I Want To Make Copy Of My Backup Hard drive
    First i trying to copy paste 10 GB folder from one hard disc to other disc. It did not do and there is no error message either. So i copy tried some sub folder in main folder at least size of half 10 GB , again its [/FONT]failed , so try i more low lize amount[FONT=Open Sans, sans-serif] mount sub folder to copy , this time its copy successfully (2 GB folder with files 16.352) , when i tried to copy next folder its copied successfully 6GB mount data , so i checked once again why it faild when i tried to copy only 5GB , i got this that 5GB sun folder data contain more than 30,000 files and 6GB data is only 17,000 files only so i got my problem , and problem is copying more than 30,000 files folder gives error, Is there is a maximum limit of folder size (number of files in single folder or copied contain ) to copy paste. please advice.....and please tell when this type of error windows 7 give, is its because of 1GB ram DDR2 , or it is because clipboard size ?

    I want Know :- this error only comes to windows 7 only
    2. is this problem caused by low RAM (1GB)
    3. is this problem caused because of DDR2
    4. or its problem of clipboard memory
    5. and is this problem only in within while copying between 2 different

    Thanks in Advance [/FONT]:worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy:

    only reason I use Teracopy is because the fastcopy verifies at MD5 instead of CRC. CRC is a lot faster when transfering huge amounts of data that you want copy/move verified.

    Verify is important if you dont want data lost or corrupt, going external to external transfer for example is especially hairy business in a windows environment. But I need some speed too, and MD5 is just a little too much calc for 2 or more TB of files
