    "Property Loss" Message copying images


    I have just got a Dell Inspiron running Vista Home Premium. Most things work
    fine, but I have come across an irritation when trying to use removable media
    - usb keys, CF cards, etc. Most files copy across as they should, but image
    files give rise to a warning message box entitled Property Loss, which then
    asks me "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties? If
    I click yes, it copies OK as far as I can see, but I have to do this for each
    image. Since these are mostly jpegs (some bmps) that I have moved about on
    usb keys regularly on XP computers, I find this baffling and I haven't been
    able find any information about it.

    Help - does anyone know what this is about please? What properties are
    missing and what can I do about it?

    ==============================
    Maybe it's referring to metadata like...
    the date taken, camera info...etc.

    Right click one of the .jpg files and go to...
    Properties / Summary tab / Advanced button...
    to see the info.

    The following articles discuss metadata.

    Many thanks John. I have looked at the properties, but cannot find any
    pattern there. Since posting my original message, Dell support phoned me
    back and spent quite a time looking at what was happening on my machine.
    After going away to think about it, their final conclusion was that this is a
    glitch in Vista, which they will be raising with Microsoft. In the meantime,
    I guess I'll have to work around it.

    Thanks again.

    Re:*More* "Property Loss" Message copying images


    That was an interesting article - I now know much more about metadata. I'm
    obviously missing something, but I thought that USB keys and CF cards acted
    like any other memory, so that whatever was in a file would be reproduced
    exactly when it was copied.

    Many thanks again John
