On Windows 7 and 8 I have a periodic problem where cut (or copy - from here on I will just say "copy")/paste operations fail. The copy process actually doesn't even initiate. Here's what I mean:
- If initiated via the keyboard with a CTRL+C on a network file and subsequently CTRL+V to paste, nothing happens. If I do a right-click the
Pastemenu option grayed out
- If I right-click on a network file, select
Copyand subsequently right-click to paste that file, the
Pastemenu option is grayed out just as above
- Whether I use the keyboard or mouse to initiate a cut operation, the file does not gray out it should
It's as if the copy isn't registering. I am unable to consistently reproduce the problem. When the problem starts it is never resolved until at least the next reboot, but it often persists across several reboots. The network server is Windows Server 2003. This problem happens regardless of the copy destination being network or local.
Enabling/disabling antivirus has no effect.
