Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I recently saved some files to the WD My Book. When I tried to copy them back into my C: drive some but not all came back with this File Error 22001. Some of the files were pictures, and others were excell files. I also had some Word files but they were not affected.
Is there a way to recover these files ? Especially the pictures.
There does not seem to be a way to fix the files that have been affected but McAfee sent out an email today saying tha Microsoft had posted a patch to IE 7 that prevented unauthorized access via XML code.
As this has been one of the speculated methods in which hackers have caused this "file error 22001" problem (the other being a virus piggybacked on cookies), my guess is that this patch is designed to solve this issue however your files are probably gone.
You can get patch by doing Windows Update inside "TOOLS" on IE7.
Actual text from McAffe notice is below.
Best of luck
