View Full Version : Can't rename or more a file

09-08-2018, 05:36 AM
I scanned some papers in my computer which is a PDF file and now I can't rename or move it. I scanned the hard drive for viruses and bad sectors which gave me a 1024 error message and then I did a check disk /r and it said everything was OK. So I did manage to copy it to another drive and it's ok. I can do whatever I want to the file. On the other hard drive where I scanned the file to I can copy it but nothing else. I also scanned other papers and they were OK. The problem file is large with 70 papers but I scanned other small file just the same way. Anyone have any idea. I was going to throw the hard drive away but it's OK I guess.

Dont assume.
A scandisk pass means nothing , it only means it passed that single test.

errors messages do not mean everything is OK .

Do you still have the file open with your PDF viewer? If so, the file is still locked. Ir can be read or copied, but it can't be moved or deleted.
