I also can't copy files to other devices.
So I can't copy anything to a flash drive, for example, no matter what method I try.

Only the second part.

NO form of copying works. (even if cut)

Only MOVE works. (but not cut-paste-move -- only drag-n-drop move)

I don't know how to create a crash dump for Explorer.
It's such a low-level program I would be surprised if that was possible.

I am using "Ditto". But it still doesn't work if I turn Ditto off. (exit and close the resident program)

Just to be sure - explorer crashes when:
- you press "(CH) Paste" menu command when previously something was put into the clipboard using "Copy", but it works properly when it was "Cut" previously?
- you drag&drop some files and press "(CH) Copy here", but it works properly when you choose "(CH) Move here"?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

To pinpoint the problem:
- is it possible for you to generate a crash dump of the crashed explorer? (you can check the path "%LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps" - there might be some explorer crash dumps there already)
- do you have any other software that modifies the drag&drop context menu?

Hello?

Thanks.

I upgraded to 1.44 and re-booted and it still fails with a drag-n-drop COPY.

It didn't start this until I upgraded to 1.42. (from 1.3.something I think)

I also tried it with CH running and it still occurs.

A drag-n-drop MOVE works okay.

It also does it if I do a Ctrl+C COPY of a file or Right-Click Context Menu COPY,
and then try to PASTE into another Explorer window.

So I can't do any copying at all.

The error I get is "Windows Explorer has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

It then closes all Explorer windows open.

When CH is installed using the official installer, you can find the settings in:
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Copy Handler

In portable version, settings are kept in the same directory you run the app from.

To backup settings only ch.xml is needed.

Every x months, I do a Windows reinstallation from a master backup to clean out all the junk, etc. I really wouldn't want to set up all the various options for Copy Handler again, e.g. favourite folders, etc. Are the settings saved somewhere to save it as a backup?

No, I meant ignoring drag and drop operations. But, I saw it in options so all is good  :)

You mean disabling other Copy Handler menu items, or items that are added by some other programs?
In CH settings you can enable/disable every individual item that is added by CH. As for other menu items - they are outside of CH's control.

Is there a way to disable all copying\moving actions EXCEPT when right-clicking and selecting the (CH) Copy/Move to to options from the Context Menu? The reason I'm asking is that when dragging and dropping, there is a noticeable delay of a second or so before the action is performed.
