After reinstalling Windows 7 (format and reinstall on C:\), I cannot copy files (from e.g. USB sticks) to the other partions made with the first Win 7 installation. Removing the read attribute doesnt help, and I cannot find any solution.

With Windows Explorer I get an error Error 0x80070570: the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

Any suggestions?

If you REMOVED the read attribute, then the system will not be able to read it. If you want to make it writeable, you need to ADD the write attribute.

Thanks for the answer, but there is already a write attribute for the partition ... –  HeinrichStack Oct 4 '12 at 18:40
