after about a year my book essential (2TB) will no longer let me move, or delete files on the drive. Every time I have attempted to do so any computer I use will say detecting file and show the status bar until windows explorer no longer responds. I have tried everything I could think of including updating firmware , uninstalling the drive, converting to different formats but nothing seems to work. I have also changed the permissions on the files to no avail. The funny thing is i am still able to play media from the device in itunes or other players as well as move them on to my ipad. So at this point I’m looking for ideas , as I would rather not reformat the drive considering there is some importat files currently on the drive.
I have attempted to fix the drive on a few computers now and only one person was able to copy files to an external drive of his. Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks.
