Basically the letters, number, and other characters that are on the keyboard. Not the ALT+ combinations. If you're pasting from a word processor, use the "Paste as plain text" option.

Hi Marie:
First off, somehow this ended up in cars and trucks questions. Looks like an "OOPS"

However, I've been told that if you've been injured in an accident you should be getting legal advice, and that's something that you really should be considering seeing a lawyer about. Often you can get an initial consultation at no charge,

Why can't I access any of the files on my WD Elements external hard drive?

If you have not reinstalled a new OS the drive should be seen after starting your unit.

Disconnect the USB drive and reboot your unit.

After the unit comes up, plug in the drive.

If the drive is new to the system, it will locate and load drivers.

Afterwards it should give the opium to view files.
It should also be seen in your device manager, under disk drive.

You should be able to go to prosperity's and see sharing opium's ect. ( Security ) Try to make your changes here

What is a legal character?

Where are you asking what you were asking?. On FixYa?.
The FixYa parser refuses to let anyone enter any character (letter, punctuation mark, ..) that is not part of the English alphabet.
I just had a problem with a circonflexe (^) accent. In the opinion of their programmers, any such symbol is illegal (meaning NOT LEGAL)
