I have an HP laptop w/Win10... have moved ALL my photos and other info from all my devices onto a Silicone Power 4Tb portable hard drive. Was doing great until couple days ago... Tried to delete a group of duplicate photos... Error "0x80070052 The directory or file cannot be created." I realize I have put too many files on the HD, but now I can't delete anything. Can move things from folder to folder, though.
Until I started looking online for a solution, I had no idea that I should have been using "safely remove HD" procedure before unplugging the HD!!! I'm pretty sure I have some serious corrupted files. :-(
Can anyone help me??? This is practically every photo I've taken for the past 15 years!!!
