Cannot copy or read file!

Post by *yt_yt » 2020-01-16, 19:35 UTC

Hi,
I am using TC 2.91 on Xiaomi mi6. Until recently I could copy files from a shared Windows folder into my internal memory via wi fi.
Suddenly whenever I try to copy the files using the same shortcuts, the same password, the same destination I get the message "Cannot copy or move file!" although it does create a very tiny file in the destination with the same name.
I tried to copy from a different source, into a different destination, re-enter the server address, but got the same result.
I tried to click on settings under LAN, but nothing happened.
I uninstalled the app, re-installed, but got the same result.
What else can I do?
Thanks

This is caused by extreme power saving functions in MIUI (Xiaomi Android). You need a beta version of Total Commander:

or direct download here:

The LAN plugin has already been updated in its release version.

Hi,
Thank you for your reply.
I uninstalled the old version, and installed this beta version. I redefined server properties, username and password.
Nevertheless, I can see the files, but when I try to copy I get the same error message "Cannot copy or read file!" and it creates a 0 kb file.
I checked and TC does have storage permissions.
I would be grateful for any other suggestions as this function was very useful for me.
Thanks,
Y

1. Where did you try to copy the file?
2. Could you check whether the plugin has the storage permission too?
