How can i copy files with multiple extensions ?

#1 Post by dostipsradar » 18 Sep 2007 08:52

Hallo all,

I have a third party software that creates file with multiple extensions, like XXXXXXXX.YYY.PDF, in the directory "mydirectory";
when i try to copy these file from "mydirectory" to another directory i obtain an error like "incorrect function".
Any idea ? Thanks in advance.

It's unlikely that your problem is caused by multiple extensions.
Do you have spaces in the file or directory name?
What is the exact command you use for the copy?

Can you provide this info?
