Solved –Error Copying File or Folder


Some users could not successfully coy their important files and folders and they received an error message saying: “error copying file or folder. The parameter is incorrect” or “Cannot copy file: The parameter is incorrect.“
In general, sometimes, if you copy a large file to USB flash drive, SD card or an external hard drive, you will get the “error copying file or folder. The parameter is incorrect” message. Now, you need to compress the large file or convert the drive to NTFS which supports larger than 4GB single file before copy files or folders. To be specific,
Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to get its main interface.
Right click on the FAT32 drive you want to copy files to and select “Convert FAT to NTFS”.
Click “Start” button to begin file system conversion.
Click “Close” to go back to its main interface when this operation is completed.
Next, you can safely and quickly copy files and folders via the Copy Disk feature.

On the other hand, some NTFS users also cannot copy files and receive this error “Cannot copy file: The parameter is incorrect.” Why? In general, there are 3 factors.

1. The target drive you want to save the copy of file or folder doesn’t have enough disk space.
Now, you should use a large drive to replace the one, and then copy files as well as folders by using the Copy Disk feature of MiniTool Partition Wizard.

2. The target drive’s partition table is corrupted.
In this situation, you should fix the partition table before cloning disk to back up files and folders.

3. Pre-positive USB power supply is insufficient.
In this situation, you can try connecting the drive to the USB socket behind the computer case to coy disk to make a backup of files and folders.
