I copied five folders to the clip board in preparation to back up my days work.

I pasted them to the backup location.

Then half way through the copy procedure got an error message to say that one of the files was still in use - (Adobe Audition seems to hold onto a file even when all files are closed, so you need to close Audition down before backing up.) - anyway so i aborted the copy which is the only choice that you have, closed Audition, then tried to past from the clipboard again, but the files had gone... so i went to highlight the original folders and copy to the clipboard but one folder - an entire website - had just disappeared. Is not that amazing? So i had to restore a backup.

Copying folders, especially that size, is not the function of the clipboard. I only use the clipboard to copy & paste text.
