Have you been to 'my computer' and click on the usb drive there?

Ummmmmmmm not just that , but tried it on 3 other computersi guess i need to take it to a computer guy to get him to fix it up....never mind.. thanks for trying!

Could it possibly be corrupted? Do you press "eject" on the usb flash drive icon (in my computer) before you take it out?

Half the stuff is totally finepics, etc, only the word docs are buggared, so maybe corrupt? dunno.

Did you test the backup when you did it, to see if it worked correctly ? As it may have been a bad copy from the start, So probably not able to be fixed

It was all fine.....I guess if I take it some computer joint they will tell me if they can or can't do it!. thanks

mahairy, Jun 17, 12:35am
Still...no ideas?

SoThe ORIGINAL prg that created THAT word doc, is STILL running on on the SAME computer?

I would suggest that if all the other files are OK and just the Word docs, then it was unplugged before they were fully saved. As such, the files are probably toast, not a lot of point in paying someone to look at it, the drive is fine.

Agreed Should never save important file directly to a usb stick ONLY
