Hi there. Just taking an educated guess as to which forum to ask for help in regards to my problem. If there is a more appropriate forum please let me know. Okay I have a failing 1.5TB drive that I have taken out and plugged into an external USB adapter in an effort to save the media files. I can get the drive to spin-up and am able to play the files fine. Problem is when I go to transfer them it succeeds %90 then a message pops up saying "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this folder" Continue/Skip/Cancel. If I click continue it restarts the progress bar from zero, but progress goes very rapid (a few seconds). The file shows up on the transfer to drive but when I launch it I get the message "file not found". Again it plays fine on the original drive. I have gone into security and share settings and made sure to remove any restrictions. I have resorted to transferring single files to try to avoid complications but received the exact same results. Any help in these regards would be very appreciated.
