everything seems normal with explorer (except that it frequently doesn't show a plugged in usb drive...)
...but the big problem is that i desperately need to back up my files ...and when i go to copy a set of files to an external drive or a thumb drive, it will copy about 6 files and then an error window pops up with it's 'bonk' sound ...saying that it can't copy the next file since it can't be found (my wording -but that's the gist).
...the irony is that all the files are there ...i can go back and open any of them ...so yes, they are there. ...but it says that they can't be copied cause they can't be found!!!

...what the hey is going on???

...please help on how to fix this.

I think I'd check that partition/drive with a manufacturer's diagnostic...and run chkdsk /r on the C: partition.
