I have a two-PC LAN-
Desktop with Vista Home Premium 32-bit, 3MB RAM, dual HDs-RAID 1.
Laptop with Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 4MB RAM. dual HDs, no RAID.
LAN is based on Dlink DIR-655 giga-switch and draft-N wireless router.
Both PCs have giga NICs.

I treat the desktop as "Home Base." When I travel, I copy (manual drag-and-drop) my personal data to the laptop across the network. If I make changes while on the road, I copy teh data back to the desktop.

I keep my personal data in lots of folders in the Public Folder on each PC.

No problems until now, I have much more data on the Desktop PC.
One folder is 66GB. Within that folder I have sub folders of 16GB and 28GB.

65GB folder will not copy to the Laptop. Copy message says "calculating" then disappears and nothing has been copied.

I cannot copy the 16GB folder to another folder on the same HD on the Desktop PC.

Why not? Is there an upper limit on size of folders/files that can be copied?

Thanks for all help.
