The "path" is the full name of a file or a folder, e.g.,

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

If the path has too many characters, you get the error-message that you reported.

If you can, rename one of the folders, using a shorter name.

Western Digital drive WDBAAE6400ASL looks like interface damaged, disk file system damaged. Wery important data needed to be restored!


Search online for professional "data recovery services".
For a large fee, they can repair the disk-drive just long-enough to read your "important" files, and copy them to another disk-drive.

Western Digital Passport 320 gb works fine on one computer but


good day sir/maam, try to scan first you pc with antivirus software. there are viruses that can harm your drive. if you cant find any viruses, format it on a friend PC with a good antivirus program. still cant detect? chances are your 320 gb hard drive is done, my guess is the interface circuit, but you can get the internal unit. dismantle the passport to get the drive. use it as your separate internal hard drive. If things still cant be solve, sad to say this you need to buy a new one. hope this helps. feel free to ask again. thanks
