When I've seen this message it is because the path length is too long. Have you tried moving the target location to a folder that has a shorter path length
for example

E:\Store

is shorter than

E:\Storage\Backup of Gateway desktop computer\File\

There is thousands of files in the HDD.

I am saying to try copying them to a folder that is not deeply nested within other folders, and does not have a long name for the folder.
