COPY Command Doesn't Work Correctly with More Than 255 Files (218438)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 2.11

This article was previously published under Q218438


When copying more than 255 files to another directory, COPY reports the wrong number of files copied, with the 255th file not copied.


This is a problem with COMMAND.COM.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in version 2.11.
