This pc is running Windows 7 32-bit (all the others have Windows 7 64-bit) but no idea why I'm having this issue. Yesterday I installed a new printer, did some windows updates, and had a power outage, so I suspect the problem lies with one of those things. I'm really at a loss here as what to do though.
Can you access everyting on that USB drive when it is connected to another computer? I'm not talking about the past, but right now if you take that USB to another computer, can you access everything on it?
