File error 22001

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

Hi there,

Did he try to recycle the files using the iMac? because sometimes if you recycle the files it will show that it was deleted from the harddrive but in reality they will remain there but the are hidden. I think the best way to check if the drive is full is to plug this drive to a computer that has a Windows operating system and make sure to show hidden files and delete all hidden folders that you will see in the drive to free the space completely.

Hope you find this helpful!

WD My Book-Delayed Write Failed-Can't access-Files deleting!


Hi when you buy a hard disk you do not get instructions on how to change from FATS to NTFS. Your hard drive is set to FATS by default,which limits you tranferring files up to 4GB.If you changing to NTFS does 2 things. 1.you can transfer bigger files.
2. You will lose all data on the drive so you have to save any files to another drive ect
To change to NTFS, go to Start then Right-click on My Computer and select Manage. Under Storage click on Disk Management. Now find your hard drive in the list and Right-click on it and select Format. Under File System change the Answer to NTFS and leave the Allocation Unit to default.Click on Perform Quick Format if you want. click OK and confirm your OK with losing all data on the drive,and your done.
Regards Bill

Are you putting the files in folders on the hard drive and not directly on the drive? Anytime you save files you have to put them in a folder or the drive will say it's full. Make sure that all your files on the hard drive are in folders.

How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.

Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK

But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

No space error


This is due to the file transfer limitations bound by the file format FAT32 (no files larger than 4GB and no folders that contain more than 1000 files). Try formatting the drive to NTFS.

Cannot copy large files onto my WD passport


Your drive is probably in FAT32 format.  FAT32 has a 4GB file limit that is why your 5GB movie isn't saving.  You will have to format the drive in Mac OS file format (HFS) using Disk Utility.
Unfortunately once its in Mac format the drive will not be recognized by windows PCs.  What I do is have a program called macdrive installed on my windows computers so that they can access mac format hard drives.
i hope this helps!

Error code -1309


Try to copy the file to another part within the drive it's in, this is a READ error. once it's there, move it to the WD drive.

Good luck!
