✔ Best Answer
Reset the administrator's password in local users & groups. Change the way users logon. Make sure it asks for a password. Use the new password to logon as administrator & try the drive again.

Tryed it and didnt work
get an error msgs
"Error cannot copy filename:The Parmeter is incorrect"
After I click ok a nother msgs pops up
"Write Delay failed..."
I tried ending some unnecessary background tasks to bring my cpu usages down and free up some physical memory that only made it copy faster but at som point it stops with an error msgs
Could this be a .dll thats corrupt?
