Windows enforces strong file copy protection so that not just anybody or any process can copy over the protected system files. Any unexpected changes in the system files can cause Windows to crash and never boot again. But if you are intentionally trying to copy over some protected files, then you can use the free NoVirusThanks Raw File Copier Pro.
Raw File Copier Pro easily allows you to copy files while showing progress percentages as well as the ability to copy files which generally cannot be copied through traditional means in the Windows OS. An example of a file which cannot be copied due to built-in Windows OS protection is the SAM file which contains user password hashes, this file is no problem for Raw File Copier Pro nor is other protected files alike.
