Hello. Recently I have been having problems with moving files around on my computer. For example, let's say I have a file called "x". When I try to move file x from folder A to folder B, when I try to access file x inside of folder B, it refuses to open. This problem seems to happen whenever I try and move ANY file. However, if I copy file x and paste it into folder B, when I try to open file x inside folder B, file x works just fine.
I know that whatever caused this problem occured between June 7 and June 13, but unfortunately I cannot use system restore, because my earliest restore point is on June 13.
I would format my hard drive (which I have not done in a long time), but I would prefer to wait a few weeks since I have a lot of important work on my computer that's due in a few weeks.
My computer's specs are:
Pentium 4 2.4GHz
MSI 648 Max series motherboard
512MB PC2700 DDR-RAM
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro
40 GB Hard Drive (make unknown)
Windows XP (with Service Pack 1)
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
