Windows 7: 'Can't read from source or disk' error message.

'Can't read from source or disk' error message.

Greetings,

Since yesterday, I've been getting the 'Can't read from source or disk' error when trying to move a .BIN file (252kb size) from my E: internal hard drive to any other internal or other external drives.

Unlike the other problems I've seen when searching the forum, the file I am trying to move CAN be renamed and deleted. Problem is, I can't open or move it. Attempting to open the .BIN file with notepad will give me the 'cannot open the ~ file. Make sure a disk is in the drive you specified' message.

I have tried the dskchk and it did not work. It seems the problem lies within that file and not the drives because every other files were transferred successfully.

I would be appreciated if anyone have a fix for this.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Personally, I would do an offline scan first:
What is Windows Defender Offline?

If that comes back clean, then try unlocker to move the file - but see the bottom of this post first:
