No. I copied a folder, which had a folder inside of that and in that folder was a file. It just so happened that the file happened to be a zip file. You read my post wrong but it was explained correctly, though I suppose I could have made it a little clearer .....
I copied that particular folder as it 'had stuff' in it and it was fairly small.
Just because you asked nicely ..... I copied another folder the same way. This folder was from a different XP share and was a single folder with 9 files (MP3s) in it. Total size of 81.7MB according to Mr. XP Properties. All copied fine.
