I don't know if this is the right place to post, but...if it isn't im sorry...

I have a problem with my external HDD...

Let me try to explain in detail what happened....

I own a laptop with XP home sp2

I bought a HDD Iomega USB 2.0 - 320 gig

Everything was working excellent till a few days ago...

I own a website, so i needed a big file host, so i thought to install a FTP server in my comp, this way people have access to files hosted in my comp.

I installed Apache2Triade a FTP server build for XP i believe...

I had it installed in my external hard disk, but it didn't worked as it was supposed to work and i uninstalled it.

I have it now installed in my D: drive and it works very good...

Now, i have a big problem...i don't know if it has something to do with the Apache2Triade, but i can see/touch/play/delete files in my external HDD, but it won't let me copy/move/burn them...

I don't want to believe i lost everything, cause i have 100gig of 1 year work there...

How can i fix this? Maybe there's a app to fix it...i don't know...

Can someone help me out with this?

Thx in advance,

RIP

you have read this part?
http://apache2triad.net/docs.php

It is recommended that only experienced users, with a vast knowledge of how networks, and its components (Apache Web Server, ect.) should install this software. It IS NOT your average software

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I connected this external HDD in a friends XP also....same thing...

I believe the prob calls slimFTP and it's installed somewhere in my external disk...

I have uninstalled the apache from it, but it seems maybe there is something messing with it...

Try taking ownership of the files on the external HDD.
