The E drive should have the same contents. That just means that the machine you are using doesn't completely recognize the drive. All should be well.

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

Hi jumbeezt,
Have you tried right clicking on the file and using the "Send To" function? If that is not an option, try right clicking and Copy the file, goto the HDD and right clicking in the folder you want the file to be in and then Paste. If this does not solve your problem, post a comment in this thread and tell me exactly what the error message is.

Hi,

It seems that your Harddrive has problems with internal Micro USB connector. WD, Transcend and Seagate brands are having such kind of problems.

Try to adjust the micro usb cable in such a way that your data transfer or ongoing activity will not hamper. Else to have perfect solution on your problem, backup complete data from the HDD and hand-over the HDD to the nearest WD technical department.

They may diagnose the issue and if not resolvable, will handover new WD Harddrive.

Thanks,
Amar

Did you try switching the USB port that you plug your unit into? This could help. You may need to reinstall the WD provided software. I believe it is available from their website if you don't have the CD anymore.

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
