I purchased my WD My Book 2TB external HD 10/2014. It is being used mainly for bulk storage (photos and music) with my Dell Latitude E6440 laptop. I am not using it to back up my laptop. My operating system is Windows 8.1 and I am running Office 2013.
The WD HD was working well, I could save files to the HD and extract files all ok. But recently (2 months ago?) I could no longer save anything to this HD and could not change files on it. I am still able to access everything on the HD normally, I can do a back up of the HD using another HD, but I am not able to save anything new onto my WD HD.
If I try to save something to the drive it comes up with Error 0x8000FFFF
There is over 1TB of space on this drive, so it is not ‘full’.
Is this a software update issue on my laptop? If so, what updates do I need.
I have looked at all the trouble shooter titles and many community posts and none of them seem to cover this problem (that I could see… and I did many pages!). Thanks.
