The "0x80004001: Not implemented" error typically occurs in Windows when trying to move, copy, or perform actions on files or directories, and it usually points to a problem with the file system or the operating system itself. Here are some steps you can take to try and resolve this issue:
Restart Your Computer: Sometimes, simply restarting your computer can resolve temporary glitches that may be causing this error.
Check for Windows Updates: Ensure your Windows OS is up to date, as the issue might be resolved in a newer update.
Run File System Check (CHKDSK): This tool checks the file system and fixes logical file system errors. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type
chkdsk /f and press Enter. You might need to restart your computer for this to run.
Scan for Malware: Run a full system scan with your antivirus software to ensure that the error isn't being caused by malware.
Perform System File Checker (SFC) Scan: This tool will check for and repair corrupted system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type
sfc /scannow and press Enter.
Use DISM Tool: Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) can fix Windows corruption errors. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.
Try Moving the File in Safe Mode: Sometimes, third-party applications can interfere with file operations. Restarting in Safe Mode and attempting to move the file can help determine if this is the case.
Check Permissions: Ensure you have the necessary permissions to move the file. Right-click on the file, select 'Properties', and then go to the 'Security' tab to check permissions.
Check the Source and Destination File System: Ensure both the source and destination directories are not corrupted and are accessible.
Use a Different User Account: Try performing the action under a different user account with administrative privileges.
