    Windows 8 Crashes Transferring Files from PC to PC

    Hi Guys,

    I am getting a rather annoying crash occurring in Windows 8 Pro X64.

    I have a new PC build and I have changed Motherboard, processor and RAM to AMD Asus Sabertooth Motherboard with 6 core AMD processor and 16 Gig of RAM. It came as a bundle from so all good there.

    Now I disconnected my 3 drive RAID by mistake on the PC before I changed it to Windows 8 from Windows 7 and so rebuilt to new spec and rebuilt the RAID and got the data back onto my Media PC downstairs running Windows 7 Ultimate. Both computers have RAID of nearly 6 TB's. When I copied from my main PC down to the media PC both running Windows 7 I managed to copy across all data with no crashes. I just had to adjust the network so it copied faster at the giga settings and all was fine copying at just over 100 MB/S.

    I have shared all folders on both networks as a Homegroup and for everyone to read & write data. Now that I am backing up from the Media PC back to the main one which now has Windows 8 Pro X64 it starts to copy folders and then will crash and reboot. It just comes up with the error windows has run into problems and collects info and reboots. I have attached the mini dump file which seems to relay that the router is the problem but I don't believe that because it does not give problems in any other way.

    Do you think that it could be that the network drops out and if so what causes it?

    I might have resolved the issue. I bought this rig out of the box like I stated before and the company overclocked it for me and I assumed (lesson learnt) that they could not have tested it enough and I think that it was stressing the computer when transferring large files. I have dropped it back to standard and so far all seems fine. I will update as soon as I have completed.

    Wish I could say the same for USB external hard drives though. Does not seem to be a solution for this yet but that is a different issue to betaken up on another part of the site.
