Hi all,

 

Ive just replaced my hard drive and cdrom drive and re installed winxp sp3, after 8yr old drive on my laptop failed,(no problem,everything was backed up:-)

 

Sysem works great so far,no glitches apart from a few files on my external drive (Western Digital 120gb) give "drive:\ refers to a location that is unavailable.  It could be on a hard drive on this computer"..error

 

This is a small amount of files,mostly music and lectures on mp3,downloaded with the Lubuntu

i was dual booting the system with prior tp hd failing.(dont know if thats relevant to anything)?

 

Ive tried the usual steps to alter file permissions but it doesnt work( windows reads these folders as empty,which they werent)

 

Anyone have any thoughts or will i just have to replace the files?

 

Thanks in advance
