    This error, "the semaphore timeout period has expired" keeps popping up when I transfer files over a network. They'll go for about half, and then this error pops up and it's over.

    How do I fix that?:(

    Is this a Linksys Router?

    Wired or WIFI?

    Are you using an Internet Security Suite or ZoneAlarm?


    This may also be thr problem....
    This can happen when the total path length of the source file
    and the total path length of the destination file are greater than a given
    value, 128 I believe. When this occures in windows, it results in a Path
    Too Deep error.
