One thing i forgot to mention is that this drive was brand new on 23/06/2010 so it’s extremely unlikely to have any corrupted files on it. I copied 135GB of files to it from one of my portable drives to free up space on that drive and there were no problems copying the files.
Well, i re-formated the drive to NTFS after spending many hours backing up all the files onto the drive i took them off in the first place and then waited a further 24 hours for the drive to format and… still no joy… i even tried reducing a file to a piddling 250kb Jpeg and i got the same response, “could not save…because the disc if full”
It seems my options are limited because i will now either have to save the files to a different drive and then copy them over to the WD drive later. (Not a very satisfactory solution because it means even more time spent managing files)
Or, i take it back to PC World and see if they can sort the problem out or if not, exchange it for a different one.
I’m sorry to say, I’m not a very happy chappy
Thankyou for taking the time to reply anyway
