    Flash drives and external hard drives


    I have windows 7 pro and recently I have not been able to open up a new folder on any external hard drive or flash drive that I use with my computer. When I use these same flash and external hard drives in another computer it works fine, my initial thought is, there is something disabled in my system or some program is blocking me when I try to create a new folder in my drives. need advice and help.

    It may be your explorer. Run a sfc /scannow in Command Prompt

    I tried SFC /scannow and there were no integrity violations. This is baffling, I checked permissions, disabled services, reformated external Hd's. What am I missing? I noticed several services were disabled, but not sure as to what services operates external HD functionality, can you offer some other suggestions? or do I need to just do a clean OS?
