    I have an old WD passport portable hard drive and it has been years since I have opened it because some file issues. I now want to fix it but is still having the same problem. They may be corrupt files and it will not allow me to open any of my photos. I tried to repair it with EaseUS but I really don’t know what I’m doing. It’ll say error or not accessible. How can I fix this without losing all my baby photos?

    Google how to take ownership of the files/folders you need. Click HERE for a link pertaining to Win10. It it, however, more or less the same procedure for Win 7 and 8.
