I have about 3200 files on an external HD. I've used both BRU 32bit 188.8.131.52 (on desktop) & 64bit 184.108.40.206 (on laptop) for renaming these files. Suddenly, BRU 64bit cannot rename files on the ext HD. I get "(filename) could not be renamed. Error code: access denied." I can rename files on the C drive w/o problems. I can rename files using Vista. BRU 32bit continues to renames files on the ext HD when it's attached to the desktop.
The WinXP desktop is old & slooooow. I was making great progress after switching to the Vista laptop, but that came to a screeching halt.
I've tried turning off/on, etc w/o success. I can't think of anything else to try. Any other suggestions? I'm really new to Vista. Could this be Vista related? Like having to give permission (twice) when moving files from folder to folder, etc? Does switching between XP & Vista cause problems?
