        Removed Win7 HDD from computer with dead power supply.

        Placed Win7 HDD in an enclosure to be able to connect using USB 3.

        Connected to Win10 2004 machine (DELL Optiplex 9020 i5 64 bit).

        On observation all files are present and readable.

        Attempted to copy and paste files to move them from Win7 HDD to Win10 2004.

        Win10 computer immediately goes to desktop once I select and click paste after copying desired files to transfer, and no transfer takes place.

        Then copied one file/folder from Win7 HDD to a flash drive to test transfer. It would not copy/paste to my Win10 2004 machine. However it did copy and paste from the flash drive to a second Win10 2004 machine. How do I fix this?
