Well, I have now found out that if I go into one of the folders on the external hard drive and try to open an image it just comes up blank - however, if I right click, copy and then paste it (into the self-same folder) it makes a copy and I can open the copy. Seems really weird.
As I right click in the folder to paste, a box comes up with headline 'DESTINATION FOLDER ACCESS DENIED'
In the body of the box it reads 'You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this file'
There's a yellow triangle with a question mark, a box with jpeg written in it and a description of the file.
At the bottom of the box it has 3 buttons, Continue/Skip/Cancel
I press Continue.
~Then another box comes up 'USER ACCOUNT CONTROL'
Body of text reads 'Windows needs your permission to continue'
Then says 'File Operation, Microsoft Windows (3AD05575-8857-4850-9277-11B85BDB8E09)
It copies the image below the original and hey presto I can open it.
I keep having to provide administrator permission which is really doing my head in. I'm the only one to use the PC!!
Sorry to be so naieve
thanks and regards
