Is the drive NTFS or Fat? NTFS is usually better for these VMs. Also I would remove the floppy drive from the hardware just to make it cleaner. Also this error suggests that there is some background database reaching its limits here, what is the host spec?

The Drive is NTFS, the host spec is in problem description, or what spec?

On the other hand, any database in the background? I really don't know what it could be.

The error message mentions "string too long".  Is a file name very long when it's trying to do the copying?  There is a limit on the combination of path+filename.  Something to investigate, at least.
