Dragging and dropping on Data drive corrupts metadata

    I've a Hp Pavillion dv8000, with 49GB C: drive and 50GB D: drive.

    I've recently found that if I move (drag and drop or cut and paste) files
    within the D: drive something gets corrupted and I'm able to access or delete
    the folders ("Access is Denied") or open the files.

    This affects all users, and all types of file (all of which loose their
    applications specific info too: e.g. photo's loose "date taken" and
    "domenstions", Word files loose the "Author" information).

    However the file size and type and date modified information remains in tact.

    Moving files within the C: drive or between C: and D: drives is OK, the only
    problem is within the D: drive.

    Also if it copy the files there is no problem.

    It seems to be an corruption of the index tables?

    Anyone with any ideas how to:
    a) fix the problem of moving the files.
    b) recover acess to the files/folders that I currently can't access or

    This is not a Media Center related issue, repost to a more appropriate group
    such as xp.general.
