Is your account an Administrator account? you might want to go into safe mode and see what you can do.
You also might want to change the USB port you are using.
Heres what I have done to try and fix this problem.
-Safe Mode administrator account and have taken full ownership of files and folders.
-Safe Mode administrators and have taken full ownership of files and folders.
-Used my administrator accounts and have taken full ownership of files and folders.
-Used PC Inspector file recovery and it copied majority of my files over but text files are in some weird language and the pics still wont open nor will the mp3 files.
-I didn't get to setup the HD too much before I put the files on it.
-Ive tried recovering the files on multiple computers and laptops, same problem.
I am on the admin account, but not in safemode and it isnt the main ADMINISTRATOR.
