Yoga 720 - Error 0x80070079 semaphore timeout

Hello forums, 

 

I bought yesterday a Yoga 720 4k 16gb, on setting up my new laptop I have learned that I cannot move/copy files from  yoga to my USB HDD, I get the following error:

 

Error 0x80070079 semaphore timeout (see attach)

 

I can move files/folders from HDD to Yoga, but not the other way (unless very small files). In trying to move files/folders to my HDD, the transfer will start, then hang after a couple seconds, then approx 1-2min a system error (see attach) appear.

 

My HDD works with every computer I work with (multiple laptops and desktops from home to office).

 

Please help with any suggestions, thanks.

Hello Yogapower

 

Thank you for using the Lenovo forum

 

Is the other devices you use running the same operating system? Also this error comes up when a file is to large to move, im guessing files that are around 6gb in data are able to move fine on the other units?

Hi there,

 

yes thats correct, all my devices use same version windows, all have no issue using the same USB3 HDD and transferring back and forth very large files .

 

Very strange, its the first time I've ever experienced this issue, and happens to be on my brand new laptop.

 

I've tried using different USB port, no change. USB Drivers are up to date on 720 yoga.
