im having problems with my 500gb hd. i installed this thing about 4 or 5 months ago and everything was working great up until about a month ago. now i get the error deleting file or folder: “Cannot delete file: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.”. this isn't for just 1 file or folder, its for the entire hd. i can still access the files, ie. play a song or movie, but i cant modify them at all, i cant delete or move them, and more importantly, i cant add files ... and that sux. its really getting to be annoying since my main hd is at like 10% capacity right now, that's the whole reason i bought a second hd.

ive searched the web and tried all sorts of things. i tried the unlocker program, which lets me delete files, but nothing else. i booted in safe mode and clicked folder properties/ security tab and something else, checked some options i found on the web, didn't change anything. i can modify everything like normal in safe mode, so thats kool, but i takes too long and my computer boots up slow.

anybody have any ideas? i need my hd back. HELP!!! :)
