I have 2 hard drives on my box.

I use the second one to back up any important stuff, but I cant paste anything directly into it.

When it was installed in this box it already had quite a few folders and files in it. I can paste into an existing folder and create a new folder inside an existing folder, but if I try to create a new folder of its own (not inside anything else) I get a pop-up telling me it cant create the folder "new folder".

I seem to remember it saying it was a "read only" file or something, at one stage.

I always thougt a hd couldnt be "read only"

Any ideas how to fix this ??

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like it might be a permission problem. What OS are you using?? If you're using 2000 or XP, make sure your NTFS permissions are set properly.
