Store it in the Cargo bays, not in inventory.

Go and copy the character you just did all that on.

Many seem to have tried that and they now copy successfully.

After no less than 20 failed attempts to copy my main. After doing all that it copied this morning.
Well I'll be dipped! This actually worked! Don't know why companions seemed to cause the issue, but glad I'm finally copied over!

I was as shocked as you. Grats on it working.

See you on the test server but the credit isn't mine. Check the PTR forums for the guy/gal who came up with it.

To be safe I removed all gear from my main and all companions and placed them in the cargo bay. I also removed everything from my inventory and placed in the cargo bay. Character copy worked first try after failing 50+ times.

Interesting. I didn't have to remove the gear off my main but I could see if others are having trouble and just removing it off companions to give that a try too.

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to pop in and let you know that we definitely have not forgotten about the character transfer issues currently on PTS. We are actively working on getting this fixed as fast as possible. As someone mentioned previously you can follow the directions in our community blog to auto-level a character to 55 and play around, but we certainly understand that you will want to play with your mains!

I will pass on more information as soon as I have it.

The fix has been found, but I do not know if Customer Service is aware of it. Now you are.

Also, please note that there is one other issue preventing transfers.

could the failed char copy system have anything to do with the guild loading errors that some people are experiencing on the PTS? I know Death and Taxes members that made the transfer are unable to join or form a guild atm because it errors out and boots us to login screen and out of guild while resetting any progress that was made while online. Even using the work around people have been claiming helps I am unable to complete a server transfer.

(Workaround being stripping gear off self and all companions and sticking your inventory and all items into the cargo hold)

That is not a fix it is completely random. I am still unable to copy.
