When you attempt to transfer a file from your Handheld PC (H/PC) to your desktop computer using H/PC Explorer, you may receive the following error message:

Could not transfer one or more of the selected file(s) to the specified destination.

A temporary folder will be created containing temporary copies of these files. A shortcut called "Handheld PC Recovered Files" will be placed on the Windows Desktop.

Warning: The temporary files will be deleted upon the next error of this type. To avoid having these files permanently deleted, you should immediately copy these temporary files to another folder. The folder will now be opened, please copy the files to another folder at this time.


This behavior can occur if you attempt to copy a file to any of the following target locations:

  • A CD-ROM drive
  • A read-only network share
  • A floppy disk drive with no disk inserted
  • A floppy disk drive with a floppy disk that is full


To resolve this problem, make sure that all of the following conditions are true before you attempt to copy a file:

  • You have write access to the target location.
  • There is enough available storage space on the target location to store the file that you are attempting to copy.
  • If the target location is a floppy disk drive, there is a disk inserted in the drive.

Additional query words: 1.00 hand held
