Hi.... I am desperately needing help now... My external hard-disk which contains 3 partitions. In one particular drive, there are a few hundred .TIF images inside. I created 4 new folders to copy the images into so as to better organize them. After that, I realize I can no longer open the images! They are still there, and their file sizes are stated clearly. There's a message saying "Access ia denied. Make sure the disk i not write protected or file is not being used". Clearly, the disk cannot be write-protected and the file is not used at all. When I tried to connect the hard-disk to my laptop, I cannot even access the files as it says "Access is denied". I tried with other documents such as Word file and it also happens. As long as files are being moved from one folder to another within the same drive/partition, the file will no longer be able to open. It's like a black hole there. The other 2 partitions have no issues. This is very strange and frustrating. I've never encountered this before. Is there a bug somewhere? Could anyone kindly offer me some solution to my problem? All my precious images can't be opened now! Thank you very much!
