Hi all The other day I bought my dad a flash drive (Kingston, 2 Gb) for him to back-up all his files. There are about 180 files, all either MS Word, Access or Excel documents and in total come to around 50 Mb. I selected alll files in the relevant folder and dragged/dropped to the flash drive. To cut a long story short, I managed to copy all apart from 17 of them. For some reason whenever I try one of these 17 I get the message "Unable to copy [filename]. The file could not be created." or words to that effect. These 17 files seem no different from any of those that were copied succesfully- they're the same format, created on the same PC with the same software. They can all be accessed/edited ok and so are not obviously corrupt. I tried creating a new file and copying info from one of the rogue 17 into this, them copying the new file across to the flash drive, but I get the same error. I thought this must mean there's something wrong with the data/how it's been entered but it seems to be exactly the same format/arrangement as the data in the files that have copied ok. Does anybody know what's going on?
