HELP! External hard-drive issue
by perindavie - 11/15/12 12:30 PM
I was recently trying to transfer some files to another folder, both of which are on my external harddrive.
The files started to not respond, and when I tried to eject the external harddrive it wouldn't eject, just had the 'spinning' symbol. I wasn't able to shut down my computer either, because it said that I had a program running (the transfer of files). I had to manually turn off my computer and then unplug the external.
I restarted my computer and plugged the external back in. Now, when I try to view the file that I was trying to transfer photos to, it appears to open but then just shuts the whole filed down. It has down this multiple times now, and it also happens when I use my boyfriends computer.
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions to help fix this? Would really hate to lose everything on my external.
Thanks in advance!
