Disc read errors, copy errors, missing files, sounds like your drive is going bad. Go to the hard drive manufactures website and download their diagnostic disk.

Try memtest for a few days. I suspect they knew of this issue.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
