    Cannot copy files from Temporary Internet Files fo (WinXP SP1)

    When I tried to copy or move certain graphics or HTML files from the Temporary Internet Files folder, I was not allowed to do so and instead an error message was displayed : "Cannot copy/move files : cannot read from the source file or folder". But I can copy/move other files of similar types from the same folder without any problem. When I looked into the properties of the files, they had the same properties. Why? How can I copy such files ?

    Were those files in use at the time you were trying to copy them over to Temp?

    No, they were not used. I actually suspected that they were. I exited from my system, switched it off and started again just to make sure. But still I can't move or copy them. BTW, there were a few such files from the same web page and I could copy or move some of them to another folder, but not two of them. The size of the two files (one .jpg and one .htm) was about 3K each. I'm still wondering what had gone wrong. I had no similar experiece with Windows 98.

    That will commonly occur when the files have failed to completely download or download properly. When this happens to me, I simply delete the files, reload the page, F5, and then you will be able to copy them no problem.
