Hello,
Hi
Running Vista

Since my return from holiday when I left my PC
to enable me to view my email I cannot:

Amend a file on my PC and save it to the same folder.
Delete an existing file.
create a new file and save it to my E: drive

I can save an amended file to my desktop
I can save an amended file to another drive (C:) 

It is almost as is it cannot see the E: drive but the files
on that drive open when required.

I get error messages that suggest the:
file path does not exist
file is being used by another programme
file has the same name as a file currently open

I also receive an error message
data error (cyclic redundancy check)

Running out of ideas to check.

Any thoughts?

run a chkdsk /r on that drive.
