    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.
