Windows 7: error 80070570 from an external HD

15 Dec 2012   #1

windows 7 Pro 64 bit
error 80070570 from an external HD

I know there are lots of these problems here but I think
mine is different.
I have a file on an external HD that I can not delete,
as it gives the above error. I use the external HD for
my backups.
Running Windows 7 pro 32-bit with all the goodies.
I know I could format the HD to solve the error but I
have other files on there I can not lose.
Thanks for any help.

Got this error code, reburned isos, tried from USB, etc. Finally removed one out of 2 ram sticks, and install went smoothly. Does anyone know WHY that works? Is installation unable to handle more than 2gigs (ie like 32bit addressing)?
