WAD Copy command fails rather weirdly...

By far the fastest and easiest thing to do is to just show the command and its results:
Code:
[E:\Archives]*copy "Windows.Old.7z" F:
E:\Archives\Windows.Old.7z => F:\Archives\Windows.Old.7z
TCC: (Sys) The parameter is incorrect.
    0 files copied      1 failed
 
[E:\Archives]
There's another file in that directory that yields the same results.

Not reproducible here. That error is being returned by Windows; all TCC is doing is passing the source & target names to the Windows CopyFile API.

Is there anything unusual about that file (for example, does it have streams)?

What happens when you try the copy with CMD?

Rex, no the file doesn't have streams, and no I didn't try it under cmd.exe (somewhat overloaded here and didn't have the time to bother with it, particularly since I could work around the problem - the GUI). But thank you.
