Symptoms

When you run the COPY command at a command prompt on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device, the destination file may be deleted. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
File not found.

For example, this problem may occur when the following conditions are true:
  • You run a COPY command that resembles the following to copy a file to another file:
    copy <source_path\file_name><destination_path\file_name>
    Note The <source_path\file_name> placeholder is the path and file name of the source file to copy. The <destination_path\file_name> placeholder is the path and file name of the destination file.
  • The destination file exists, but the source file does not exist.
