Thanks Bob,
The permissions were the problem, some of the files were read only, so it worked fine from my system but when I tried to load it into the C drive it wouldn't transfer. Made them all read&write and it worked like a charm.

I have 300 small files on the folder, is there some limit on how many files can be in a folder in Windows? If not any ideas why they do not transfer? Is it a Window problem or a VM problem?
