It would appear to me that you have had the dual panes selected via F8 in ZtreeWIN.

In the source window you have correctly selected the files but in the destination window you have selected the sub-directory where you want the files to be copied to and not just the root of that drive where you want them copied to.

To clarify when you tagged the files selected their details will include the full path. So you only select the root of the destination drive. That is providing that you wish to duplicate the path that was used on the source.

Hope this helps...
