Hello friends, my computer is running the Windows 7 and I have some problem with that. Actually whenever I try to drag any of the files from one device to another in my computer then I get the error message as error 87: incorrect parameter. Can you tell me that what is the parameter is about and how can this be avoided? I have tried through all the possible ways for this but that was not helpful to me. Now the resolution is totally depend on you guys suggestion.

If you are trying to move the file to some other external drive (I assume) then there is possibility that the external drive is faulty and for that reason you are getting the problem like this. You can also try to check that if some other file which is in your computer can move to that drive or not.

What is the device that you are talking about and what is the file type that you are trying to transfer? You should post with the complete detail to get the exact solution for this. Anyway, by that time you should check if the security is setup properly for that device or not. You can also try by dragging the file to the computer first and after that to the other device when you want to shift it.

My target device is the external hard drive and there is no problem to transfer files from my computer to the drive directly.
