Error Copying File or Folder

Cannot copy : The specified network name is no...

 
  Description  
     
 

The file copy failed as the connection was lost.

For Windows Home Server (WHS), it likely due to a bug in the server and/or the combination of adding a second controller or drive that alters the default disk configuration.

If your Windows Home Server (WHS) is using a Promise disk controller, the driver installation may add an entry into the registry that causes caching problems and is unnecessary. To fix this:

  1. Open the Run dialog (Windows key + R) and type regedit.

  2. Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  3. Remove the key: PtivPbmd REG_SZ Rundll32.exe ptipbm.dll,SetWriteBack
  4. Close regedit and restart the server.

Fix Server Configuration

When two client requests occur on the same port, the server will drop the earlier request. By moving the SMB connection on the server to another port, it eliminates this conflict. To make this change on the server:

  1. Open the run dialog (Windows + R) and type regedit and Enter.
  2. Navigate to the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters
  3. In the right pane, left-click in an open area and slect New, then DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. Set the name to SmbDeviceEnabled with a value of 0.

This change sets port 139 for the SMB connection. It will also be necessary to open this port on the firewall.
