Error 0x800704C8 in Windows 10

Good day! I can’t copy files on my Windows 10 laptop. Error 0x800704C8 appears every time and that’s it. Accompanied by the message “The requested operation cannot be performed”. What does it mean?


Good afternoon! Based on information on the network, there can be 2 reasons for error 0x800704C8: either insufficient rights or corrupted system files. The first option is more likely. To get rid of the failure, make yourself the owner of the folder with the files you want to copy (“Properties” – “Security” – “Change”, find the “Users” group and set “Full Control” in the “Allow” column). You can also disable the antivirus, it can also block the procedure.
