Error 0x80070057: The parameter is incorrect on Copy Paste


When trying to copy a file off a networked drive I get the following error: Error 0x80070057: The parameter is incorrect.

This is the second time this has occurred. The first time I was trying to copy 4 files and 3 of them were copied correctly and the other was not. The solution then was to add it to a zip archive and then copy that.

This time, adding it to an archive does not work.

This is not a file path issue, other files with longer source and destination paths copy fine.

Any idea what is going on?

FAT32 drives have a max file size of 4GB. Are you sure you're within this standard?

p.s. I also disagree with one of the suggestions to reinstall winrar. (Yes, I saw that you posted this question on a few other forums ;-)
