    I have problem copying my backupfiles (64GB) to a 400GB removable USB
    harddrive. I get the follwing error message:
    <Cannot copy "file_name": Insufficient system resources exist to complete
    the requested service.>

    Smaller ( 14- 16GB) can be copied without problem

    Server version: SBS 2003
    Hardware: DELL Power Edge 2850 with 4GB RAM with 1.6GB available

    Please suggest solutions. Thank you.

  2. Not sure if this is related but...
    Is the removable USB drive FAT32 or NTFS?

  3. Hi Bob,

    Thanks for posting here.

    From your post, my understanding on this issue is: you cannot copy large
    backup files to removable USB drive, and you receive the following error
    message:
    ============================
    <Cannot copy "file_name": Insufficient system resources exist to complete
    the requested service.>
    ============================
    If I am off base, please feel free to let me know.

    Based on my knowledge, The CopyFileEx and CopyFile functions are used by
    all of the standard file-copy utilities that are included with Windows.
    Because these functions use buffered I/O, the maximum size of a file that
    you can copy depends on the amount of paged-pool memory that is available
    at the start of the copy procedure and whether the Physical Address
    Extensions (PAE) kernel which allows access to memory above 4 gigabytes
    [GB] is in use. With the standard kernel, 1 kilobyte (KB) of paged pool is
    required for each megabyte (MB) of file size that is opened for buffered
    I/O. Because there are two files involved in a copy procedure, 2 KB of
    paged pool are required for each MB in the source file.

    When the PAE kernel is used, the overhead is doubled and 4 KB of paged pool
    is required for each MB in the source file.

    Removed physical address extension (PAE) from ARC path in Boot.ini file to
    perform large file transfers and reboot computer after completion.

    I hope the above information helps.

    Have a nice day.

    Do you have error messages?, like :

    • Error cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk
    • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
    • There has been a sharing violation.
    • Cannot delete file or folder The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name.
    • The source or destination file may be in use.
    • The file is in use by another program or user.
    • Error Deleting File or Folder
    • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
    • Error Copying File or Folder.
    • Cannot remove folder.
    • The filename or extension is too long.
    • Path too deep.
    • Destination Path Too Long.
    • Could not find this item.
    • Filename is not valid.
    • The file could not be accessed.
    • The path you entered, is too long. Enter a shorter path.
    • File Name could not be found. Check the spelling of the filename, and verify that the file location is correct.
