I see that you have answered this question .
But can you please elaborate on how to enable clipboard settings from VM VDI to local desktop.
Example - where to go exactly and stuff
Have you tried using Robocopy instead? You can download an admin resource toolkit to get it on XP. It has multiple copy modes and hopefully, won't do what the old school 'copy' is doing.
An alternate solution would be to grab a utility called Unlocker, which is capable of releasing file locks in most cases. It's quite handy.
