  • "Access denied" problems

    I am trying to clean off my external hard drive (EHD) by moving the desired documents (as a single group) to the disc of my PC. There is plenty of room on the PC. I then want to reformat the EHD to get rid of a bunch of space-occupying junk (I don't know what it is, but I'm pretty sure I don't need it since it doesn't show up in the list of files on the EHD). There are about 3800 small files (usually a few hundred kb or smaller) In the group I'm trying to transfer which I haven't been able to copy over to my PC, and I get the message "Access Denied." I am logged in as an administrator, and I'm not trying to move the data from one computer to another (as the knowledge base article on "Access Denied" addresses) so I don't think it's a firewall problem. What can I do?

    Do you get the same error message if you use My Computer for the action?
