I am receiving errors on certain files and folders which I am trying to copy and paste from SharePoint 2010 to another SharePoint 2010.

Below is an example of the error: enter image description here

I am receiving this for both Folders and Files.

I have full control access on both sharepoints.

Please help


So I have changed the timezone so something random. The file hasn't successfully copied over because of a new error: enter image description here

To avoid these errors, I created a new SharePoint document folder, and named it something similar.

Then use the explorer view to copy over the files and folders then delete the original one and rename the new one to the same name as the original one.
