We have come across an issue in our SharePoint implementation whereby moving documents (Cut and Paste) between two different sites using Explorer View causes the following error:
Can't read from source file or disk.
The structure of the site is as follow:
It doesn't make a difference whether the file I try to move is in the root of the library or is inside a document set. I've tested as a normal user and also as a farm administrator, both of which receive the error.
We have users on Windows XP and Windows 7. Using the structure above, XP users can cut and paste documents between two sites but Windows 7 users cannot. Using the structure below, where the library is a further subsite deep, neither XP or Windows users can perform the move.
I've read some articles and blogs online which suggest that this is normal behavior and it's not possible to move documents between different sites using Explorer, only libraries. Does anyone have experience of this problem or similar and can anyone advise why we're seeing different results for XP and Windows 7 users?
