  • Are you able to open that file manually? Try running a disk checker to look for bad sectors on the hard drive. Also check file permissions if they got changed somehow – noone392 Jun 21 at 17:36
  • yes the file blk01801.dat can be opened. It's the last file created and smaller than the other .dat files – Shiwu Stonehouse Jun 21 at 17:53
  • Hmm then I would try to scan for bad sectors. – noone392 Jun 21 at 17:57
  • disk is good. am going to remove everything and start over using the ADMIN account instead of an account with admin priv – Shiwu Stonehouse Jun 22 at 11:29
  • If this is windows you can right click the file and make sure the permissions are open so anyone can read and write – noone392 Jun 22 at 13:00
