I have an odd transfer issue that I haven't been able to make sense of. I started to slowly add our dvd collection to the server and overnight it seemed to develop this problem. I've tried multiple ways to transfer data but I've had no luck all around. I'm going from a desktop PC to server running WHS2011.
1) Using Anydvd I used "burn to image" and routed the program to save to the server. That worked for a while and then it gave the message "Cannot write to file:// (server location) Reason: The specified network name is no longer available." I also tried to perform a bluray rip the same way with the same result.
2) I had some old dvd disc with just the TS_audio and video folders in it. I transferred them to the desktop and then tried to copy over to the server. It worked before and now it gives the message "Invalid MS-DOS function".
It seems like any larger file is not allowed/able to transfer but I can transfer small work documents, photos, etc. I did get one bluray to copy over in the midst of all of this but I have not idea why it did. From what I can tell, I did nothing out of the ordinary.
I've tried installing updates on both computers, restarting both computers, shutting down everything (router, switch, server, and desktop) for a night, changing workgroups, check disk on all drives (clean), and now I'm at the end of my troubleshooting knowledge. I was about ready to reinstall W7 and WHS2011 and thought I'd ask your opinions before doing so.
Any ideas? Thanks.
