I have tried to copy files from my old computer to my new one using a sandisk flash drive.

My old operating system is windows xp, my new operating system is windows 7.

When I try to copy files I get the above message 'The Directory or file cannot be created'

Can someone tell me what this means?

Some files did copy onto the flash drive therefore I assume the flash drive is OK. But the rest will not. Is this a problem with permissions or the way the files have been saved?

I would appreciate some help with this. Thankyou.

Make sure the flash drive is NTFS formatted.
