WHS file copy failing problem – Fixed. HDD Issues – Not

I mentioned in a previous post that I was having issues copying files to my windows home server and that the drive’s SMART data had errors.  This is definitely a problem which I need to fix, but it was not that cause of my file moves and copies failing from Vista and Server 2008 to Windows Home Server.

When rebooting Windows Home Server over lunch I noticed the Virtual Server 2005 Master Console had a message that my virtual machine additions were not up to date.  Seeing this, I went in and updated the virtuam machine additions and blamo everything is working perfectly now.

So if you’ve put your Windows Home Server on Virtual Server 2005 and you’re having file move or file copy operations failing for reasons which do not make sense, update your freakin Virtual Machine Additions.
