Copy stops when file unable to write

Post by *7mbtogo » 2016-11-14, 11:48 UTC

Steps to reproduce:

Install TC 8.52a x32 with default settings
On the left pane open \\server1\share1
On the right pane open \\server2\share2

Copy stuff from right pane to left pane with the following options:
Copy NTFS permissions - UNCHECKED
Overwrite options: OVERWRITE ALL OLDER
Skip all which cannot be opened for reading - CHECKED!
Overwrite/Delete read only/hidden/system files - CHECKED

start copy stuff

However, when a file is encountered that is cannot be written?, I get a prompt to Retry/Skip the operation. The copy is not continuing in the background.

Expected behavior: copy should skip the file silently and continue with the next file. At least a skip all option should be present.
A more detailed error message would be helpful as well (destination path too long maybe?)

This can happen when a file is only locked somewhere in the middle, e.g. a database with a locked record. Since TC has already copied part of the file (and overwritten a target file), it cannot postpone the copying at that point, because it would lead to data loss.
