I am in the process of moving files from my old computer to an external hard drive to put on my new computer. I put a bunch of folders with pictures in them into just one folder. I moved this folder to the desktop. (I wasn't thinking-I should have just copied the folder from 'My Pictures' to my external hard drive). I also moved a folder of mine containing word documents. Now I am unable to view the pictures (Error "Failed to load photo" comes up) and I can no longer view my word documents anymore. Any suggestions?

Did you check the default programs for opening these files?

What's the Word error message?

In any case...move the folder from the desktop...then run chkdsk /r command on the partition to which you move the folder.

How much RAM installed? How much free space on Windows partition?

I figured it out. I had to give myself permission for each of the folders. Weird. I could view everything before but once I moved them to my desktop it wouldn't let me.
