  • Hi,

     

    What is the parameter used? Please share us the whole command.

     

    Basically, the error message indicates that the copied file is being used by another process. Do you have any program running which uses the abc.bak file? If so, please temporarily disable that program and copy again.

     

    Meanwhile, does the error appear while copying other files?

     

    Could you boot in Safe Mode with Networking to copy the file for a test?

     

    Best Regards

    Dale
