External HDD drive write protected on vistax64
Is there anybody who can help me please?
A few months ago i bought a new HP Pavilion Elite m9530.be desktop
computer running Vista Home Premium x64.
Almost since the beginning i haven't been able to write to my external
hdd wich i used to use on my XP Pro x32 Laptop. On my laptop, I have no
problem at all writing and reading to the HDD.
It's weird, because sometimes I can write to the HDD on vista x64 and
sometimes it says "this disk is write protected..."
Please keep in mind i don't want and i can't format the disk because
there's to many important files on it and I don't have the space to
backup them. Is there a solution without re-formatting the disk.
ps. When i bought it, it was formatted as FAT32, on my xp laptop, I
changed it to NTFS.
Thanks in advance,
