Failed to extract file from WIM file?
I'm getting this error when attempting to write to an SSD connected via USB. Same error no matter which iso file or install disk I use as a source (tried several different versions of Win7 and Win10). Previously, I had no problem installing to USB sticks and HDs, this is the first time I've tried an SSD, however I assumed it should work exactly the same. At first I thought there was a problem with the iso I was trying to use, but I've verified it does this with any image.

I'm running on Win7. Just mounted the SSD and formatted it NTFS via the management console. What does this error really mean? Is there some special handling required for SSDs?
